Ferraris are not sinful
« on: June 26, 2007, 05:09:40 PM »

Italian car maker Ferrari has responded to the recent publication of the ten commandments of the road from the Vatican.

One of the commandments stated that drivers should not use their cars "as a means for outshining other people and arousing a feeling of envy".

Clearly, anyone who owns a Ferrari is likely to "arouse a feeling of envy" among other motorists but the firm has stood up for its customers.

It says that most people buy Ferraris because they love driving and they love driving cars that have been made so well.

The firm makes some of the world's most luxurious and expensive cars and has been an icon of the roads since it first came to be 60 years ago.

Responding to the Vatican's commandments, Ferrari's general manager Amedeo Felisa said: "Unless having fun has become a sin, I don't believe it [to be wrong].

Mr Felisa went on to say that he hoped owning a Ferrari was not a sin but said if it is, then "you should commit at least one from time to time".

I wonder how many sins have been committed in obtaining the money to buy a new Ferrari?


"No Matter how little money and how few possessions, you own, having a dog makes you rich."

This could spark a new way of subtley ordering a ferrari when the missus is in the room....."Hello, I'd like the new Sin please, I think I'll have that sin in red thanks"

Well done to the vatican for making it easier for those having a mid-life crisis to order the car they need.

Is that like the words of Saint Thomas Aquinis?
