Players of the Forza and Gran Turismo race series understand that every little advantage counts when working to trim lap times.

But even though the casual eye will not perceive a great deal of difference in the F138, most of the parts and systems have been revised to maximize performance while maintaining Ferrari's admirable reliability.  Read More
