This Fer­rari is for steep slopes

The Witness - Wheels - - MOTORING -

The other Fer­rari com­pany, Of­ficine Mec­ca­niche Fer­rari that makes trac­tors in Luz­zara, Italy, calls its new trac­tor the Sky Jump, so called be­cause it can drive up hills so steep that the driver can’t see any­thing but blue sky out of the win­dow. Fea­tur­ing front pneu­matic wheels and rear rub­ber crawler tracks, Fer­rari say the dual con­fig­u­ra­tion en­dows its crawler with all the han­dling qual­i­ties of a clas­sic trac­tor with pneu­matic wheels and the sta­bil­ity and trac­tion of a cater­pil­lar, all driven by a four-cylin­der, turbo In­ter­cooler en­gine making 67 kW (91 hp).
