Ferrari’s $3.2-million special edition debuts this Sunday in Beverly Hills

Ferrari will celebrate its 60th anniversary in the U.S. this week in appropriately grand fashion.

The shindig, entitled “A Race Through the Decades: 1954-2014” takes place this Sunday, October 12. It will feature some of the rarest examples of the Prancing Horse breed, as well as new model built specifically for the U.S.

Sixty Ferraris will parade down Rodeo Drive. That may sound like just another day in this Beverly Hills locale, but these specimens will be some of the rarest and most memorable from the past sixty years.

The list includes the 1954 375MM that was named best in show at the 2014 Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance, Steve McQueen’s 275 GTB/4, the 308 GTS from Magnum P.I., and the Testarossa from Miami Vice.

Ferrari will also unveil a special-edition car made exclusively for the U.S. Priced at $3.2 million, it’s rumored to be an F12 Berlinetta-based tribute to the North American Racing Team (NART).

NART was founded by Luigi Chinetti, Ferrari’s first U.S. dealer, to help promote the brand. It gave Ferrari its last win at the 24 Hours of Le Mans, in 1965.

The new car could wear NART’s blue-and-white color scheme, and will likely feature numerous mechanical and styling changes. Only 10 examples will be built.

Getting into the 60th anniversary event will probably be easier than getting one of those cars. It’s free and open to the public, not just hedge-fund owners.

Why your EV’s voltage matters, and what it means for your car’s charging speed

Electric cars are slowly, but surely becoming commonplace, and they introduce a whole new generation of specifications that are worth caring about. Range is an obvious one -- but there's another metric that has a major impact on the overall experience of owning an electric car: voltage.

You'll often see the voltage of an electric car's battery pack touted in advertising. Hyundai, for instance, is proud of the 800 -volt battery in cars like the EV6 -- that's double the voltage of the 400V battery in the Tesla Model Y.

Why you should buy the Milwaukee M18 Inflator
First and foremost, the Milwaukee M18 Inflator provides an easy way for you to inflate your tires in a pinch or awkward situation. It is particularly great for the tires of riding lawnmowers. They tend to be awkward to get to the gas station or other place where you traditionally inflate tires and would be a pain to hand inflate. Usage of the machine is simple. Insert an M18 Milwaukee battery, set the desired PSI for the deflated tire, connect to the tire and wait until it is done inflating. The Milwaukee M18 Inflator will stop pumping air automatically once the ideal PSI is achieved. When you're done, the Milwaukee M18 Inflator is small and easy to tuck away, being about the size of a lunchbox.
