What on earth are they thinking? Did they really name that thing SCUDeria? That's like some parent that picks a name for their kid like Prince 2. Having money doesn't mean your kid won't get beat up in school.

Storage?


I prefer these, they don't break every fifteen minutes.

Scuderia Ferrari is the name of their Racing team, so not quite with you here...

My buddy had a 456, in the last snow we had actually classified as a blizzard he ran out to the store. He daily drives his Ferrari and didn't really take into consideration that there was freezing rain. As he crested a hill he gave it a little too much gas and spun out, it went sideways into someone's yard and he thought he was in the clear. Well, there was a 4ft or so retaining wall, he went off the edge and rolled it on its side. They totaled it out.

A couple days later he bought a 599.

I would hate to have to pay his car insurance bill.

Scuderia means team in Italian and was used in the name by Enzo for the first race cars.

"Scuderia" means stable (which is a nice place to house your stallions, I guess).

She's a beautiful car, even with the odd color, but you know it's nickname is going to be "scud." Ferraris are like rolling pieces of engineering artwork. I'm especially fond of them considering where my family is from (last name?) and that car does not deserve a nickname like "Scud!" They should all have Italian woman's names, and only come in Red.
