This is perhaps the coolest Shell ‘commercial’ we’ve ever seen, and it clearly demonstrates Shell’s commitment to hosting the annual Eco-marathon challenge. This event highlights Shell’s technical partnership with Ferrari and brings many of the world’s smartest people together to design vehicles that run farther than ever and to show off the cars gas mileage rating, on the smallest amount of fuel.
Follow along as Shell’s involvement with the fastest, furthest and everything in between cars make an incredible journey across Europe – one of which made it 3,300 kilometers on the equivelant of 1 liter of fuel. Absolutely amazing.
The Ferrari 250 TR is one of the more unique and beautiful supercars that was made by this automaker. According to history it was also one of the most competitive. With this supercar Ferrari managed to secure ten wins in a total of nineteen races between 1958 to 1961. This included a win during the Le Mans.
The fact that one of these models is up for sale is a rare thing to see – but you can guarantee that it will bring in plenty of money. Dozens of collectors of high end cars will willingly pay the thousands of dollars that is needed to secure the 1957 Ferrari 250 TR (chassis #0714TR) for themselves. The RM Auctions’ Ferrari Leggenda E Passione will be held in May at Maranello.
This particular model to be sold on the block was campaigned between 1958 and 1963 and was given a black paint true to its period. RM has high hopes that the Ferrari 250 TR will set a new record that could exceed $21.7 million.
For months now we have watched as some of the largest automakers have been struggling to make end meat. But during this whole time Ferrari has been telling the whole world that they are not having any problems and are managing just fine. Obviously they were just saying this to keep up face – but this isn’t the case.
This week they announced their plans to lay off 10% from their workforce. This news came after they announced that their sales had dropped from 600 unit’s a month to only 92 sales around the world. In a chance to keep away any large piles of inventory and parts Ferrari has announced a 20 day holiday in which they will shut down.
Their inventory is already backing up even though they have just released the California, announced the new Scuderia Spider 16M, and have a two year waiting list for many of its products. Sources say that the sales for the V12 models have stalled and the sales for the F430 are lower than normal.
Ferrari is saying that part of the reason is because this is a naturally slow time of year for them. But it is no doubt that they are also suffering like everyone else. Maybe this will lead to lower prices for many of their models? We can only hope!
