The above $300K Ferrari was backed into by a delivery truck in New York City.  The paid driver of the Ferrari was ticketed for double parking.  Any bets on how long he keeps his job?

It is called an FF. It is a two door station wagon with a V12 and 4WD. More of a grand
tourer than a zip zip Ferrari. A very easy to drive supercar.

it's really sad when a marque like ferrari stoops so low as to produce a vehicle that cannot be distinguished from a honda or a chev.

A little Bondo and some touch-up paint and she'll be as good as new.

It's even sadder when you need the marque to compensate....

I think you miss what it is.  Ferrari had to increase volume to survive. So they are making more grand touring cars than they use to.  You can't take an F40 to the coast for the weekend not enough luggage space to carry anything other than two people.  The FF was made to be a grand tourer and have room for luggage and such.  If you want the wild Ferrari of the past they still exist just not this model. The Califonia is another example of a more usable Ferrari. I personally think it is handsome but I like Shooting brakes anyway (we say station wagon). I loved my P1800 Volvo Wagon others thought it ugly. Different strokes for different folks.

the p1800 was a fine looking vehicle as far as i am concerned. this abortion does not fit the ferrari mold. senor ferrari would turn in his grave. just fer fun,i googled who owns who in the auto manufacturing industry. i was shocked. volvo is owned by a chinese company. and fix it again tony owns ferrari and a whole slew of other manufacturers so i dont see why they had to spoil a ferrari to make it look like a chrysler and not even italian no mo.

Of course it does, rich men like their cars and their skyscrapers to look like giant penises.

It's kinda nice to know that you can rent these kind of high end autos just for kicks. Drove a brand new Bentley ragtop from Squamish to Vancouver ("The Sea To Sky" Hwy.) recently. It was a movie "picture car". OMG, great experience, and they paid me to drive it.

If you missed it last night, 60 Minutes had a segment on Lambourghini's 50th anniversary. Scott Pelley had the thrill of a lifetime driving their cars:


Take note of the fact that Lambourghini, a tractor manufacturer, started building cars because Ferrari refused to address their problems with weak clutches!
