    At tim e of launch, I specc'd SF90, in yellow for USA delivery. Nice mid-spec, nothing OTT. Came in at $655k. Equivalent F8 (just for comparison) was around $400k. No rarity value to SF as there is no production cap. Brilliant vehicle though I don't like the new glass cockpit honestly. Anyway, cancelled my order and have 812GTS with delivery schedule November. Nice spec, and around $455k. It will be the last V12 Ferrari convertible, so look forward to a long life and think its great value (and you can actually travel for a week with more than a toothbrush!)

    Hard to say for sure, but there's definitely a possibility that the 812 VS is the last V12.

    I don’t really understand the difference between the Bugatti Chiron and the new Volkswagen Rabbit. I mean they both are owned by the same parent company and the price difference is relatively immaterial to this group. Performance is almost the same as well.

    Think Twosherpaz deserves a “drop the mike” for this latest (VW parent) post - can’t really top that !

    Isn’t the rabbit the replacement for the Chiron or is it the other way around? Why have both on the market at the same time? Lol.

    I can only say why I would pick it “It’s damn SEXY”. Everything else about it awesome. But we buy these cars just for driving experience.

    re the SF90 after about 2/3 laps round a track, say Silverstone driving hard, the battery would now be well drained and the performance would have dropped down quite significantly. A pista would then give the SF90 a race.

    Have you done this and compared these two cars?

    I have driven the hybrid FXXK Evo and raced against FXX cars and vice versa. Only in Fast Charge mode does the FXXK turn into the same engine as the FXX. In long run it is significantly faster and in Qualifying mode it is yet again faster.

    You would not need to ever put the car into fast charge mode in the scenario posed. It is usually done on a cool down lap in order to store the car fully charged or if you want to have a qualifying lap sooner than normal charging would provide. If one were racing a Pista, the car would be so far behind you after 2/3 lap at Silverstone, that you actually could switch it over to fast charge after the Hangar Straight heading into Stowe and still easily win.

    That is not how the system works. In performance mode there is enough regen to always keep full power available on a track.

    I don’t claim to be an expert on Rimac and their ownership, but this quote is close to how convoluted it can be:

    “Two years ago, Mate Rimac told me that the moment would soon come when he'd stop being the majority shareholder of the EV company he founded in 2009. This was just after Porsche had acquired 10 percent of Rimac, only to follow up with another 5.5 percent in 2019. Today, the Croatian company's automotive investors include the Hyundai Group, Magna, Koenigsegg, and Jaguar. And if a new report by German publication Manager Magazin is to be believed, Volkswagen is to raise Porsche's stake further by selling Bugatti to Rimac.”

    So VW sold Bugatti to Rimac in order to let their subsidiary Porsche acquire a larger stake in Rimac.

    In my mind, it is not necessarily clear that represents a sale as much as it does a shuffling of assets in order to gain more control of Rimac.
