"My Italian car can beat up your Italian car" is likely the next bumper sticker for one Italian man... after he gets out of jail. According to the Daily Mail, a 32-year old Ferrari 458 Italia driver is in trouble after coming down with a serious bout of road rage. A Fiat 600 would not get out of his way on the roads near Rome, so he did what any insane person would do, and decided to ram the hapless Fiat repeatedly. Once the Fiat pulled over, the unnamed Ferrari driver switched from car fighting to fist fighting and began pummeling the other driver. He wasn't alone, either, as a passenger in the Ferrari aided in the fisticuffs.

A passing off-duty cop stopped to break things up and backup arrived to haul the two Ferrari fighters off to jail. After searching the car, police found over $30,000 in cash and are attempting to figure out where it came from. According to the report, neither man is a stranger to the police and they're both in custody for assault, criminal damage and resisting arrest.

        No kidding. Obviously not the cars real owner.

        Who the hell uses a Ferrari to swap paint with a freaking Fiat 600!? Just go fast around it!

        The story said 'road near Rome'. Unless you're on the autostrada, most roads surrounding Rome are very narrow, one lane per side roads. There's no left or right lane.

        @Gruv: Roads are public places, people have as much (or more) of a right to drive slowly than they do to drive swiftly.

        That said, I do wish people would pull over when convenient on long stretches of road where passing is difficult to impossible.

        If Ferrari owners want to drive fast, they can surely afford track time, or they can buy property enough to build a track. It really doesn't take much.

        Probably not insane, just criminal or maybe drugs. dont let people like this give the real insane people a bad name. Probably just evil people.

        Coke- or meth-heads.
        Still, the effing Fiat should have pulled over, if only to drool.
        • 4 Years Ago
        Good.

        MOVE OVER OR GET OUT OF THE PASSING LANE.

        Christ. I can't tell you the number of times I've wanted to do this. And coincidentally (or not), about 90% of the time the offending vehicle that refuses to move over is an SUV. Hrm....

        ferrari is a guido car anyway. get a Tesla Roadster. so much better.
      • 4 Years Ago
      and a Ferrari couldnt overtake a Fiat? XD
        • 4 Years Ago
        Lol no if the other car obstruct the way
        That's why he went ballistic, not because he hated the Fiat 600..........although it might be a good reason.
      • 4 Years Ago
      It appears that the Fiat owner should have moved over, but that in NO way is a reason for this kind of violence. For those of you condoning this, you really need to think twice about what you're saying. Your actions are just as big a danger to every other motorist on the road than someone who camps out in the passing lane. I don't want to die because you're in too big of a hurry and get impatient. That's called being a responsible driver - even when someone else isn't!

      Climbing off of my soapbox now.

        • 4 Years Ago
        You just made me think of this scene in the prison yard,...

        Vito: "What ya in for Frankie?"

        Frankie: "Oh I repeatedly rammed a Fiat Driver in the behind, then beat him up."

        Meanwhile,.... on the other side of the prison yard,...

        Vinnie: "Hey Bubba what ya doin tonight after dinner?"

        Bubba: "Ohh I'm going to repeatedly ram a Ferrari Driver in the behind then beat him up."

      Argh. Two very nice cars (nice in very different ways), getting abused by one a-hole.

      "The 458 is faster than you, confirm you understand this message"
      • 4 Years Ago
      The Ferrari 458 driver didn't want to stop because his car was on fire and was trying to put it out by driving fast.
      • 4 Years Ago
      Kudos to the Ferrari. The Fiat driver was messing with him and it was pretty much a self inflicted wound (illegal, of course, but understandable). Too bad it took damaging his own car in the process. Obviously he can afford the fines and car repairs it is going to take to make his point. Some people don't realize driving courtesy goes a long ways.
        • 4 Years Ago
        I'm pretty sure a part of common courtesy is to NOT beat the crap out of someone else, especially 2 on 1.
        • 4 Years Ago
        Common courtesy would have prevented the whole thing! A lesson may have been learned. Get the hell over!!!!@
