If you’ve got the money, Ferrari’s got the time.

The Italian supercar manufacturer has something of a niche for creating one-off, special edition Ferraris for high-value customers, but only if they’ve got the pocketbook to back it up. 

There was Eric Clapton’s dazzling, $4.75 million SP12 EC, James Glickenhaus’ P4/5 racecar, and countless other rare Ferraris that you’ll probably never see unless you happen to strike oil in your backyard. These Ferrari’s are for the absolute top of the tax bracket, those who have no idea what the words “credit limit” mean.

A new addition to Ferrari’s exclusive one-off club is a special edition F12 Berlinetta, details of which have just surfaced online via GTSpirit.

The modified F12 looks to have a chopped top, a reworked front bumper, and black accents riddling the car’s body. The aft section is especially dramatic, with enormous air intakes replacing the standard F12’s sloping rear glass. 

Ferrari F12 TRS

The tailor-made Ferrari is rumored to be called with F12 TRS, which makes sense as Ferrari just trademarked the F12 TRS symbol earlier this month. More exciting, however, are the rumors that the TRS has been fitted with an F1-inspired Kinetic Energy Recovery System (KERS), which recoups energy from the brakes and funnels it back into an electric drive system.

The standard Berlinetta is powered by a 730-horsepower, 6.3-liter V12, making it the most powerful road-going stallion outside of LaFerrari. It sprints from 0 to 60 mph in 3.1 seconds, so any extra power from the KERS should make this specially commissioned TRS ridiculously fast.

The asking price? A cool $4.2 million. That’ll get you a brand new McLaren P1, Porsche 918, and a LaFerrari with $800,000 leftover for gas and valet bills. So unless you’ve got a few platinum records lying around, you’d better start saving.

70mai Smart Dash Cam 1S -- $40, was $50

The 70mai Smart Dash Cam 1S is the cheapest option in this list, but it doesn't feel like it because it's packed with features. The dash cam, which supports microSD memory cards of up to 64GB, records footage at 1080p Full HD resolution with night vision capabilities thanks to its Sony IMX307 image processor and f/2.2 aperture. With its built-in G sensor, the dash cam will detect an accident and lock footage to prevent overwrites. You can use voice commands to ask the dash cam to take photos or to start recording videos, and you can use its accompanying app to watch real-time footage and to download files to your phone.

Rivian R2 vs Hyundai Ioniq 5: Should you wait for the Rivian R2?
Rivian R2

Rivian has taken the wraps off of the Rivian R2, an electric SUV that's similar to the much-loved R1S, but smaller and, crucially, cheaper. But the R2 goes up against some serious competition. The likes of Hyundai have been building solid EVs for some time now -- including the Hyundai Ioniq 5.

The R2 and the Ioniq 5 each make a compelling case for themselves, and they're likely to end up being similarly priced if the Ioniq 5 doesn't get much cheaper and the R2 does end up being sold at $45,000. To be fair, the cars are pretty different -- the R2 is more of an SUV, while the Ioniq 5 is much more crossover-sized. But because of their similar price, you might be deciding between the two. How do they compare? We put the Rivian R2 and the Hyundai Ioniq 5 head-to-head.
Design
The differences between the Rivian R2 and the Hyundai Ioniq 5 are perhaps no more apparent than when it comes to design.

The 6 best remote car starters in 2024
Best car remote starters

While some modern vehicles come standard with remote start features, it's still relatively uncommon. That's a shame because if you live somewhere where cold weather, snow, and ice are frequent concerns, a remote car starter is one of the best auto accessories you can have. If you're not familiar with them, a remote car starter works similarly to a key fob, except it will actually start your car from a distance instead of just unlocking the doors or trunk. That means you can start your car from the warm comfort of your home or office before venturing out. If you live somewhere hot, you can even start your car and let the AC run for a little bit. You'll never enter a freezing cold or scorching hot vehicle again.

The best remote car starters have long ranges, replaceable batteries, and other handy features — but how do you know which is best for you? We’ve compiled a list of the best car starters in a range of prices and features. Keep in mind that while you can install some yourself, some will require a professional.
