looks too inelegant to be Ferrari.

With the squarish headlights and gaudy wheels it looks like a glorified Saturn.

The Ferrari FX is a Ferrari automobile which was custom made for the 29th Sultan of Brunei by Pininfarina. It featured the flat-twelve engine of the Ferrari Testarossa and a 7 speed sequential transmission from the Williams BMW Formula One team. Only seven cars were ever made, six of which were delivered to the Royal Family in Brunei. After the Sultan cancelled delivery of car number four, Dick Marconi bought the car from Williams. Car number four is now on display at the Marconi Museum in Tustin, California. The FX has a top speed of around 205 mph (330 km/h). yet Ferrari claimed "We don't want to make the fastest car in the world" when they made them

the badge on the nose was enough to identify it. no one else builds a rectangular, yellow badge with business card proportions.

Never seen that Ferrari before, ever.

Lot of interesting 1 off's on this website if anyone is interested. Found it while I was trying to see what the back of that car looked like.

Little remembered fact, in 93, they actually put on a racing series with that car (in the US) called "Fast Masters"

That was....uuummm....really something. An insane something.

In general, you are going to have to get pretty obscure to "get me." Outside of one offs (and not many of them) if it was made and sold through a dealer network, the chances are high I will know it.

....you are going to have to get biblical, like finding Moses car to "get" Bill...and even then, he probably did the first oil change in the thing and had to chisel the new tires for it out of Jerusalem stone himself!

The problem with the 220 is finding one that actually runs. I put a clutch in ours. couldn't depend on it to run, had heating issues.

Sure is sexy looking, though. Nothing wrong with that aa v-12 wouldn't cure.

True, the wheels also gave it away. It looked more like a 360 mashup than anything else. Woof.

If you look carefully you can also the the Pininfarina badge on the side.

So Bill, you may be the one person who knows obscure enough car history (this is a compliment) to shed some light on a debate.

It is claimed that Ferarri stole the "prancing horse" for Stuttgart (Porsche). It is claimed that the during the war, there was a german plane shot down and the pilot somehow had a flag/emblem from Stuttgart

http://www.themotoringjournal.com/wp-content/uploads/2010/01/583px-coat_of_arms_of_stuttgart_svg.png

Stuttgart had used the Prancing horse long before Ferrari was even thought about.

It is rumored that Ferrari used the horse intended to be an insult towards the german auto manufacturers in Stuttgart and that they had downed a plane.

Not sure how true any of this is..but is amazing that Ferrari uses a symbol so close to Stuttgart's symbol. Even more amazing is Stuttgart roughly translates to "stallion stables" and scuderia is roughly translate to "stables"

Sort of interesting??

I've fortunate through working with cars to meet some very interesting people. I've heard both versions of the story and the truth lies somewhere in the middle. Phil Hill told me this version, the fighter pilot version. For many years Scuderia Ferrari's job was to make Alfa Romeos go fast. Almost adozen years after he was given permission he put it on his cars for the 24 hr Spa (I believe.) That was twenty years before Porsche existed as a car company

Porsche was supposed to have taken the horse from the Stuttgart cety emblem. I don't think anyone stole anything from anyone.

It is very clear they did that.

Look at the Flag from the state of Wuerrtemberg

http://www.best-buy-flags.co.uk/pics/germany-free-peoples-state-of-wuerttemberg-1918-1945-10144b.gif

The Porsche logo is simply the coat of arms used on that flag with the coat of arms from stuttgart in the middle of it.

If anyone did it was Porsche. Ferrari was using the horse twenty years before Porsche existed.

Why couldn't couldn't it be coincidence?

If there was any thievery done it was done it was done by the fighter pilot's family. I've never heard of any kind of fued over it.

Porsches is very clear. The coat of arms from stuttgart on top of that from wuerttemberg.

I heard at Porsche they claim Ferrari stole the prancing horse from stuttgart ( not Porsche). So there is some level of fued.

Neither one has more or less right...it's just interesting that Ferrari needs to use the coat of arms from Stuttgart. :)

You don't want to start about czech /Poland/germany. It's like sued-Tirol / Italy question today. Many think that much of northern europe is prussian....last time that ended badly

or which beer is better.

I dunno. But after 5 liters....

well I still dont know.

I do know.

Italian beer is bad. Wine is good.

But i got a gift today of "italian" wine. However it is in German and from sued tirol.

Which is better.

Well, italian quality control is about the same as french. Which means better than greek.

And italian women arent blond. Unless their parents are on one side italian and other german. Mixed german-italian blonde women look really good.
