Latest Lifestyle News: A New Hybrid Ferrari Chapter Opens

The allure of a brand new Ferrari simply never loses its appeal. A combination of their famously limited runs and the sheer innovation that goes into the technical and aesthetic character of every car ensures that automobile lovers await each new model with baited breath.

And now they can exhale once more as Ferrari have taken the wraps off a new model that promises to be the catalyst for a brand new chapter in the Italian marquee’s rich and illustrious history.

Step forward the Ferrari SF90 Stradale, a successor to the famed LaFerrari. However, unlike the LaFerrari, the new hypercar isn’t a limited edition offering but a part of the automaker’s standard line-up which will have a normal product cycle. You can read a full profile in the lead story of today’s newsletter.

Elsewhere this week, we report on a dramatic new offering from peer-to-peer taxi service Uber who have diversified in a rather unlikely way by providing customers in Australia with aquatic transport to the Great Barrier Reef.

There’s also a quirky arrival in the hospitality world with the opening in Florida of what is thought to be the world’s first guitar-shaped hotel, while we also take a look ahead to this year’s Salon Privé which is set to host the world’s largest gathering of Bentley motorcars.

Also relevant to the auto industry, we look at a new Rolls-Royce car that pays tribute to the first non-stop trans-Atlantic flight, a new Bullet Train in China that’s said to be faster than a supercar, and a new range of luxury electric scooters by BMW.

Finally for this week, there’s news from the watch world where Frank Muller has unveiled the world’s first functional Bitcoin timepiece.

That’s all for now. We hope you don’t salivate too much at the sight of that stunning hybrid Ferrari – we know we did! Until next time, have a wonderful week.
