Default Ferrari 360 Modena...err...limo !!



Has this been posted before? I couldn't locate anything of the sort, so here is the link, have a look for yourself. The ugliest limo ever created. I mean, Ferraris aren't really meant to be limos, are they? And no, this isn't just a question of paradigm shift a la Cayenne. It just shouldn't happen!!

For the sake of comparision though, that Corvette limo, which crops up in everyone's email inbox every once in a while, is far more elegant IMO.

Hey thanks for that link G, looking at more pictures now, it looks even more hideous. No wonder Ferrari was livid.

This is a complete anti-thesis by itself. A sports car and a limo in one.

haha.. No way. This was done by a reputable company making Limos. There was a law suit filed by Ferrari agains this No idea what happened to it.

Their current project is that of a Lamborghini Limo.

If that Gallardo comes out the way it's supposed to according to the photoshop, it will be far more elegant than the Ferrari 360. But completely redundant nonetheless. Something we can definitely do without.

Sure, but he may have commissioned it. He has paid Pinninfarina big $$$ to do crazy stuff for him.

My point is, if you aren't driving it, then why the hell have it in the first place? The backseat isn't an apt place for a person buying a supercar. Supercars are meant to be bought so that they're driven, and not for having the owner driven around by a chauffeur! And the GT's would do just fine for someone keen on letting his family/friends taste what his car can do.
