Default Ferrari Station Wagon

No Joking here people.

This is for real.

This Amazing car is rare Ferrari 456 Venice Station Wagon, limited-edition vehicle designed and built by Ferrari styling house Pininfarina for the royal family of the Sultanate Of Brunei. Featuring four doors, a proper backseat, a hatchback, and a 20 cm longer wheelbase, this vehicle is similar in size to a BMW 5 series wagon.

There were seven of these made for the Sultan of Brunei . This is just one of them. There is also a Ferrari 456 four door saloon in his collection.

Does God take requests for rebirth? Man, and then they say its a Dog's life, I would be one anyday if thats what they get driven in. But a nice looking set of wheels however the side profile doesnt go too much with the frontal looks. Back end is quite nice though.

ha ha what's next a Ferrari Hybrid? That looks like a streched cross between a Supra (Toyota) and a Palio.

I wouldn't go so far as to call it BAD, I'll say this:
It is very, very unusual......a little too unusual for my taste.

Ferrari's aren't meant to be cargo movers. It's just not what they're for.

But interestingly, Ferrari have done a good job of converting their sports car into a station wagon. It looks pretty okay....out of place, yes, but not too bad!

But that's just my opinion.

The rear looks like a Volkswagen.

I'd like to know what goes on in those illustrious minds when they think of such contraptions for themselves.

The next thing we would probably expect is a Cab/Truck version from Ferrari .

I think I will commit suicide that day.
