Fake Ferrari Ring Busted

Italian officials arrested 15 people involved in selling imitation Ferraris online. Wannabes could buy the knock-offs for only $30,000, a fraction of what the real thing would cost. Predominately made with pieces from American Pontiacs, included only a few pieces from the real 328 GTB. 14 cars, along with altered authentication papers, have been sold.

This story makes me ponder why people buy luxury goods. Is it only important that everyone thinks you're driving a Ferrari? Or is the real thing worth the price tag?

Do you think you could spot a counterfeit sports car, as well as you could spot counterfeit Gucci sunglasses?

The purchasers were completely aware that the cars were fakes! Also —I love that episode of Friends. Hilarious.

I don't get buying expensive cars just to have an expensive car. If I was going to spend a lot of money on a car, I'd spring for the Dodge Challenger!

What a bunch of morons. A $30k Ferrari from eBay is not going to be legitimate.

Um, people buy fake things because they are fake themselves. And hell no I couldnt spot a fake ferrari! I couldnt even spot a REAL ferrari unless it didnt have the obvious ferrari horse logo. Hahaha, now I was just reminded of that Friends episode where Joey buys all the ferrari clothes to pretend that he has one. :)

:rotfl: counterfeit cars?? that's priceless. Ferraris are ugly anyway, i don't care about what's under the hood if the car is hideous.

It is only important that everyone thinks you're driving a Ferrari. That's why people buy luxury goods so that everyone will think they have money. It's all for looks/show.
