11 New Cars Under $65K as Quick as a 10-Year-Old Ferrari

  11 New Cars Under $65K as Quick as a 10-Year-Old Ferrari What a difference a decade makesThis weekend, RM Sotheby's will auction off one of the first Ferrari 250 GTOs ever built. Initial estimates suggest it will go for more than $45 million, making it the most expensive car in the world. But while that car is a piece of automotive history, some of the specs look a little underwhelming, at least by modern standards. The 250 GTO only made 300 hp, nearly half as much power as the Portofino, the least expensive new Ferrari available today.

MONZA, Italy (AP) Lewis Hamilton denied Ferrari a dream home win at the Italian Grand Prix on Sunday as he overtook Kimi Raikkonen eight laps from the end to claim a fifth victory in seven years at Monza.

The Mercedes driver beat Raikkonen, who had started in pole, to tie Michael Schumacher's record of five Italian GP victories and extend his championship lead to 30 points over Ferrari's Sebastian Vettel, who had a nightmare start.

Valtteri Bottas was third in his Mercedes, ahead of Vettel and Red Bull's Max Verstappen, who received a five-second penalty.

Hamilton had started third, behind Raikkonen and Vettel after the Ferraris started on the front row, booking the top two places at Monza for the first time since 2000.

The championship leader put Vettel under pressure immediately but Vettel pulled clear and was alongside Raikkonen into the first corner.

Hamilton had another go down the outside heading into the second chicane, inching ahead of Vettel when they made contact causing Vettel to spin.

The safety car was deployed and Vettel went into the pits for a new front wing, coming out 18th.

Both drivers complained on team radio but an investigation decided that no further action was necessary.

Vettel still prone to errors despite past F1 successes .
Even after winning four Formula One titles, Sebastian Vettel is still prone to worrying errors. Vettel made some key mistakes last season, allowing rival Lewis Hamilton to win the title, and the Ferrari driver appears to be throwing away his chances this year, too.Ferrari was quicker than Mercedes all weekend at the Italian Grand Prix, even achieving a front row lockout in qualifying. That set the stage for what should have been Ferrari's first victory at its home track since 2010 and for Vettel to cut further into Hamilton's overall lead after winning the previous race in Belgium.
