Talking Using Ferrari Enzo as taxi ,where else? The Middle East

[COLOR=#0066cc][/COLOR]


This little gem in Muscat, Oman represents what you do when you have bodacious sums of money and time. Now we're all for having a little fun, but we're talking about an Enzo, which, while not the prettiest of Ferraris, still doesn't deserve to endure the eighth-level of Maaco paint-shop Hell. Whoever did this gets points for authenticity, even including the roof signage. If nothing else, we'd certainly go for a ride: as passenger to get anywhere in seven seconds

I want to be taxi driver please

I somehow cannot believe that this Enzo is genuine..A PS job maybe..

Here's another example of VIP Taxis which are "fast"!

A Techart Cayenne, A Gemballa Cayenne and a Maybach 62..All in Russia

Photoshop.

Surely Ferrari would not allow that.

Those Russian taxis are so hideous! How much do they charge for a ride in the Maybach taxi?

Do a google search for 'Enzo Ferrari taxi' and you'll see that this pic. is being discussed in quite a lot of other forums and in one forum someone has said with conviction that a Ferrari hater has done this PS job.

P.S.: And for God's sake guys, the car's name is 'Enzo Ferrari' and not 'Ferrari Enzo'!

It's called Enzo Ferrari. It's a typical schoolboy error, but an acceptable one at that. Like some, I won't pull my hair out if I hear people pronouncing it incorrectly. I'll just tell them politely. Service with a smile, like any taxi driver really.

This has been confirmed as a photoshop-job on a couple of Ferrari boards... It still made me chuckle quite a bit when i saw it though
