Undoubtedly a nice thing but .......

"characterized by sportsmanship and exclusiveness, a distinguishing mark of the Ferrari Gran Turismo"

Good God what a load of old toss !

Ferrari really has become the automotive equivalent of Disney.

What I do like are the large high quality pics and the smooth rollover enlargements on the web site. As they say, "that's the way to do it".

For that money, you could have got a set of 48 Ferrari multicolour pencils which would add a touch of colour and life to the desk of all Prancing Horse enthusiasts. That's 1.72 per pencil.

It is a very nice site but if you're charging three grand for a DVD storage tower, you can probably afford to splash out on the web design.

It's all licensed ,so they do not have to make much of this stuff; the iPod case is by Ferrari CG MOBILE – Brand & Design Company – Paris and the bigger scale models are made in Bristol .

As you'd expect, top quality leather & a perfect fit

The design mimics the seats on the California I drove or the 599

I listened to a pair of headphones with a prancing horse logo. Logic3 I think. I looked to see if they make them without the Fez logo as they sound bloody great. I think they are a gamer accessory manufacturer by default? I even asked the sales girl if she worked for Ferrari or Logic3 and I think the reply was both
Anyway great sound but not for 200+

I am a hypocrite mind, I hate Ferrari replicas but have no trouble with tat iPhone cases for 8

I've also got an older Red version that I bought in Monza last year
