Two Ferrari-faking workshops busted in Spain [w/video]
The imposter Ferraris were designed to look like the F430, the F430 Spider and the 458 Spider, and customers reportedly knew they were buying copies.
Eight people were arrested in relation to the case, which was tipped off to police by a Ferrari representative in Spain. While a trained eye could pick out these fakes in a heartbeat, we're surprised at how close they look to the real things – the cars even have faux Ferrari (Fauxrari?) engines mounted amidships and some actual Ferrari parts where they couldn't be replicated. But the details, like gaping panel gaps and awkward proportions, give the cars away. Be sure to watch the video that we included below.
