And You Thought That Ferrari Was Yours?

You buy a Ferrari and its yours right? Not according to Ferrari. Limousine builder Dan Cawley not only purchased a Ferrari 360 Modena, but he claims when he asked Ferrari if they cared if he modified the street legal race car into the fastest limo on the planet. Cawley says Ferrari told him he could do what he wanted, the car was his.

£200,000 in modifications later, Ferrari is now arguing that to keep the Ferrari badging on the car is an infringement of Ferrari’s trademarks. This should come as quite a shock to all you tuners and modifiers out there. Ferraris are apparently more like a porcupines than anyone previously thought.
