Ferrari [NYSE:RACE] is in the final stages of developing its next-generation platform. The platform, which sticks with aluminum construction and features a modular design, will bring weight savings as well as improvements in crash safety and NVH characteristics for the automaker’s future cars.

Niche supercar marque Keating first cropped up a decade ago and ever since has been working away on a handful of models. Its latest is the Berus, which will offer the choice of V-8 and electric power.

Someone was actually crazy enough to drop the supercharged 6.2-liter V-8 known as the Hellcat into a Ram 1500. The modification work was handled by Canada’s Midland Chrysler and could make this particular 1500 the fastest pickup in the world.
