Ferrari Scaglietti police car to warn against driving while phoning
So, Liveearth leaves you cold. And, your schedule is open next week. You crave some excitement in your world.
And you like cars.
Oh, and money’s not a problem for you.
Head to London.
The Salon Prive’s Private and Luxury Super Car Show opens Wednesday at The Huntington Club, one of the most exclusive members-only clubs in a city in which private clubs have been a way of life since the 1800’s.
But, if you’ve got the change, they’ll let you in, even if you’re not a member.
It will be worth it.
Ferrari is leading off with a special display of their V-8 and V-12 offerings, including the F430 Challenge currently racing in the Ferrari Challenge Trofeo Pirelli (wasn’t Trofeo an Oldsmobile, circa about 1991? I think I have one in the driveway) and the 599 GTB Fiorano. The 612 Scaglietti will be there, too.
And that may be of particular interest to you.
As you are obviously a person of discrimination, and substance, you may be interested in the various personalization options which Ferrari offers for the Scaglietti. These include just about whatever you want, provided you’re willing to pay whatever price they ask.
You may, however, find the one they intend on displaying to be less than appealing:
It’s a squad car.
Yes. As in police.
You may never see it on one of those cable TV shows where the cops chase the poorly driven cars of the bad guys, but what Ferrari intends on displaying in London is a 612 in “special police livery,” as driven by police forces in the United Kingdom to “promote road safety messages including the danger and enforcement implications of using a mobile phone whilst driving.”
That means there’s hope for all of us.
We all know what happens to used squad cars, right?
Should be able to get it cheap.
