Ferrari F138 Formula 1 Car Officially Unveiled in Maranello [Video]
The covers were taken off the new 2013 racing car at the factory in Maranello today. The model has been named the F138, the F standing for both Ferrari and Formula 1, the 13 for the 2013 season, and the 8 for the number of cylinders in the car (a 2.4-liter V8 with KERS).
The car is elegantly simple in its design, as straight as arrow, with no stepped nose in sight. The racing team's main sponsors adorn the red paintjob – Shell, Santander, Kaspersky Lab, Hublot, TNT, and Philip Morris. But there's still no mistaking this for anything other than an Italian marvel. Hopefully, the F138 is ready to win races.
