Limited-edition Porsche 911 Turbo S

Porsche has rebranded its in-house modification workshop, which is now known as Porsche Exclusive Manufaktur, and its first product is the 911 Turbo S Exclusive Series, limited to 500 units.

The factory-tweaked coupe has been given 27bhp more power for a total of 607bhp, various carbon components, special Golden Yellow Metallic paintwork and a matching cabin colour scheme. Buyers can also opt for a Porsche Design chronograph watch and a luggage set with the same design theme as the car.


Ferrari museum expands

The Italian marque's museum in its home town of Maranello has undergone renovations, which include an additional wing, a redesigned Ferrari Store and more exhibition space.

At the same time, two new exhibitions have been introduced: Under The Skin, which reveals the company's creative and technical developments through the years; and Infinite Red, which features the most significant road cars and racing machines made by Ferrari in the past 70 years.


A biopic of Lamborghini founder

Spanish actor Antonio Banderas has landed the plum role of Ferruccio Lamborghini (above) in the upcoming movie based on the biography written by Ferruccio's son, Tonino.

The film's working title is Lamborghini - The Legend. It co-stars Alec Baldwin as Ferrari founder Enzo Ferrari.
