The Ferrari 400 America: Produced in two series between 1960 and 1964, it was one of those flagship models created in response to customer demand. A big, 4-litre V12, with loads of power and massive torque, sober yet luxurious interior, firm suspension settings that didn’t compromise on comfort, and a gearbox with overdrive. The cars were all bodied by Pininfarina and included spider, cabriolet and aerodynamic coupé versions, as well as the famous, one-off Superfast models: II, III and IV.

Anonymous asked: What is anti lag? And why does it cause flames to shoot out?

It’s basically what you read.

anti: opposition of

lag: failure to happen in good timing

It’s a system made to keep the turbo spinning by igniting fuel and air before its location. That explains the pops you hear and the flames you see. Helping the turbo spin with an anti-lag system will help enable it to keep adequate boost pressure at any given time. The point where boost pressure isn’t really in effect when you want it, that’s lag and it’s no fun.

The “bang-bang” ALS systems that you speak of work by retarding the ignition timing off-throttle to the point that the cylinders push raw fuel out the exhaust laces and into the headers, THEN the spark hits and ignites the fuel in the headers. This causes a pretty violent spool of the turbine and spits flames out the tailpipe. It’s literally a controlled backfire.
It’s really hard on the exhaust valves (they’ll melt) and the turbo bearings (because of the stress o the explosion happening in the turbine housing).
Great for drag racing and other short runs, but the bang-bang has fallen out of favor in rallying because the engines have to last longer. Most rally engines now use a version of Audi’s old Umluft recirculating air anti-lag system.

Thanks for the input. Don’t want to spread misinformation.
