$5M LA FERRARI HITS MALIBU WHEELS AND WAVES – FIREBALL MALIBU VLOG 666Wheels and Waves in Malibu starts with a bang as Actor Dave Thomas shows up in a 1957 Cadillac and then the $5M La Ferrari #001 of 499.

Then, Fireball interviews artist, set decorator and Malibuite LISA DEUTSCH.

From WIKI… LaFerrari (project name, F150) is a limited production hybrid sports car built by Ferrari.

La Ferrari literally means “The Ferrari” in most Romance languages, in the sense that it is the “definitive” Ferrari.

On December 3, 2016, a LaFerrari auctioned off for $7 million making this car “the most valuable 21st century automobile ever sold at auction”.

The LaFerrari is based on findings from testing of the FXX and on research being conducted by the Millechili Project at the University of Modena.

Association with the Millechili Project led to speculation during development that the car would weigh under 1,000 kg (2,205 lb), but a dry weight of around 1,255 kg (2,767 lb) was claimed.

Only 499 units have been built, and each cost more than 1 million US dollars. An additional 500th car was later made to be sold at an auction.

The vehicle was unveiled at the 2013 Geneva Auto Show, followed by Auto Shanghai 2013, 2013 Tour Auto Optic 2000, 2013 Supercar Chronicle, Italian Chamber of Commerce in Japan.

LaFerrari is the first mild hybrid from Ferrari, providing the highest power output of any Ferrari whilst decreasing fuel consumption by 40 percent.

LaFerrari’s internal combustion engine is a mid-rear mounted Ferrari F140 65° V12 with a 6.3-litre (6262 cc) capacity producing 800 PS (588 kW, 789 bhp) @ 9000 rpm and 700 N·m (520 lbf·ft) of torque @ 6,750 rpm, supplemented by a 163 PS (120 kW; 161 bhp) KERS unit (called HY-KERS), which will provide short bursts of extra power.

The KERS system adds extra power to the combustion engine’s output level for a total of 963 PS (708 kW; 950 bhp) and a combined torque of 900 N·m (664 lb·ft). Ferrari claims CO2 emissions of 330 g/km.

The engine’s bore and stroke is 94×75.2 mm with a compression ratio of 13.5:1 and a specific power output of 94 kW (128 PS) per litre. It is connected to a 7-speed dual-clutch transmission and the car is rear-wheel drive.

Ferrari LaFerrari has a power to weight ratio of 1.65 kg (3.64 lb) per horsepower.

Swing on into Malibu’s WHEELS AND WAVES this Sunday morning…

That’s right, my Wheels and Waves Cars & Coffee event will be at the Malibu Country Mart from 7 a.m.-9 a.m. this Sunday, Aug. 20.

In past months, we’ve had more than 160 cars from all over Southern California converge into Malibu for this brisk morning show. Classic cars, muscle cars, vintage bombs, hot rods, trucks, one seriously massive military vehicle and some crazy rat rods.

Plus, we get the gambit of celebrities and we have been graced (for two hours) with Malibuite Dick Van Dyke. Past shows welcomed Keanu Reeves, Jonathan Banks, Tony Dow and others.

It’s a blessing to be able to create an event where people can share what they love most.

Our 21-mile stretch houses some of the most spectacular cars on the planet and we see them every day. It’s inspiring to pull them together and create a space where we can converse and swap stories of what we’ve seen, heard and built.

We’ve had Dow’s 1965 Corvair premiere at Wheels and Waves after a 50-year hiatus. We’ve watched a hand-built copper and brass rat rod, built by blacksmith Joe Magliato, enter.

We’ve heard a 600-horsepower Porsche built by WIKD Kustoms, who is now restoring Dow’s Corvair! We’ve watched Chuck Schauwecker’s Japanese hot rod called “Rodriguez” glide in, as well as many cars from The Automobile Driving Museum and Murphy Auto Museum.

Personally, I’ll be bringing in something special (a classic truck) from the Murphy this Sunday.

Plus, not only will we be premiering a new sound system from WIKD, but this month’s sponsor is Croftgate Santa Barbara; they make waterless car care products that are awesome.

They will be the reason that the first 100 cars will get free coffee, so be sure to thank them.

As always, I’ll have the “red bag of doom” filled with Hot Wheels where you’ll be able to reach in and hopefully not get bit by something!

The show is expanding from the Malibu Country Mart into the Malibu Village lot where there’s over 500 spaces. There’s plenty of room to house car clubs.

But I would be remiss to not thank those who already attend this awesome show.

Your passion for car culture is keeping it alive and helping it reach new, younger generations. The fun of seeing friends and making new ones expands not only our love of cars, but also of each other.

This is Malibu, and we only do things one way: the cool way.
