is as good as that Juke is bad.


Not a huge ferrari fan. But there is something about the F40 that makes me fizz every time I see a picture. I remember when must have been god knows how young, and saw one in the flesh in some museum or something. Can barely remember it, but I know I have seen one. Pity I was to young to really appreciate it. Probably thought, "oh look another red ferrari"

if you'd told me that a F40 would look good in blue or whatever that it, I would have said you were badly wrong. But damn, that looks pretty sweet :exclaim:

They might look good in blue, but seeing Phil Rudd's red one today; I think I'd be happy with a red one after all :D

taken @ Ferrari show @ Phil Rudd's Place today; 30+ Ferraris all in one place, complete with their owners & owners wags (paid for & otherwise)

Everything about that car is hilarious. NCAP 5-star rating, so suicide by head-oning a petrol tanker on the highway isn't a realistic choice for people who own them.
