Whew, that was a scary moment for the big wigs at Ferrari. The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration almost cost Ferrari $53 million in sales of its F430 Modena by attempting to implement a ban on the vehicle because it does not meet airbag safety requirements that protect children and small women in the event of an accident.

Ferrari successfully petitioned NHTSA to exempt the Modena from the requirement, making the argument that very few small women and almost no children ride in Ferraris.
