Ferrari's Marlboro Red Rush – Click above for high-res image gallery

Here's a Ferrari unlike any you've ever seen, and that includes the amusement park rides. The Prancing Horse's three-seater Formula 1 demonstrator, called the Marlboro Red Rush, was doing laps in the rain at Fiorano with either testing dummies or two tiny passengers. We've seen plenty of two-seater F1 cars, but this is the first we've heard of a factory-built three-seat joyrider and from the most unlikely source. We'd still like to know, though, how to get in? Oh, and "shotgun..."

UPDATE: Turns out this guy has been around for years and is a part of the Marlboro Red Racing School, and as one would expect of any Ferrari it sounds like a lot o' fun... Hat tip to Jim

      This is just another way to try to get Rossi in an F1 Ferrari... And another way of doing illegal testing!

      If you are attending qualifying saturdays you have the chance to win a ride as passenger in a two seater (dunno if thats offered at every race weekend). so this would be a way to have more winners. or maybe this is for abu dhabi, quasi a "deluxe ride" for ferrari world.

      I was under the impression this was Ferrari's way to avoid future team orders problems by putting Alonso and Massa together all while finding Schumacher a way back toward the front of the field.

      Must be for the wife and kid.

      looking at this and the jet-powered bus i have to say there seems to be bright future for public transportation

      looks like it could be a way to get around the testing ban.

      I don't think I'd want to be in one of those shotgun seats during a crash, even a minor one. Can you say "hot engine debris"?

      Are there children riding in the back seats? The one on the right can't even see over the mini windscreen, and the one on the left isn't fairing much better...lol

      I wonder how they get around the testing ban with that. IIRC, it's the team that's banned from testing in F1 these days, no matter what car they're using.
