Facebook is a big deal, even if you're an exotic car maker with one of the world's most powerful brands. In this case we're talking about Ferrari, which recently hit eight million followers on the social networking site.

How does an automaker with such a rich history celebrate a 21st century milestone? Scroll down to watch the good folks in Maranello, Italy throw down after gaining 8,000,000 followers. Hint: it involves a predictably red 458 Italia, plenty of open pavement and a knack for drifting and donuts. Of course, Ferrari would like us to believe that they wrote out "8,000,000" in rubber, but we're more interested in watching the 458 do its thing.

      how can the front bumper be so simple and yet still look like one of the best cars ever?! I think this model will look better 20 years from now than some other recent ferraris.

      Shouldn't the 8 millionth FB person take this out for hooning? What's the pint in liking it if there is no benefit?

      Doing donuts in an empty parking lot isn't Drifting - it's Hooning

        Donuts are more like circular burnouts than any form of drifting. Drifting involves control, donuts involve cranking the wheel and gassing until you're coughing smoke and dizzy.

      I saw an Italia here in Buckhead yesterday. Such a bummer though. It was yellow with AT LEAST 22", deepdish, color-matched wheels. Looked terrible.

        That was probably Gucci Mane's Ferrari you seen. I believe it was one of the first one in this country.

          I doubt it. There are toooons of 6 figure cars rolling around Buckhead on any given day. I run through there all the time. Even it if were, does the fact that it is owned by a rapper somehow change the fact that an otherwise gorgeous automobile was rendered tacky as ****? Nah.

          Just pointing out who's car it may have been. Your description of it pretty much described his, and I agree tacky.

      I just realized where the BRZ/FRS got their styling from - hodgepodge of various recent Ferarri's.

        Spoken like a true non-car-loving accountant who's never driven. Sorry, but spend some time behind the wheel, and I defy absolutely anyone to not be moved by the sheer drama, theatre, and real sense of occasion. Every souped up production car you experience from then on will be seen for what it is - a compromise. My unlimited weekend in an F430 burnt memories into my head that still give me goosebumps! ;-)

      That car is such a masterpiece, Jesus I would do anything short of killing a baby for one.
