I just read a very interesting post over at Jalopnik. The post is about how the author is fed up with how Ferrari has been trying to control the media; and how they have been providing media test cars that are tuned well beyond anything you would get from a dealership. This practice of providing ringers to the car mags for testing is nothing new, but I didn’t really expect it to come from Ferrari. I would guess any time there is a high drama competition between two manufactures, like trying to get the record for fastest lap at the Nurburgring, they cars used for the trial are not exactly what you would find on the dealer lot.
