Ferrari, master of renting its name out to bulk up its process, is loaning its name to ALDAR Properties, a Middle Eastern development company interested in developing a Ferrari theme park in Abu Dhabi, complete with a racetrack, driving instruction, rides, and other attractions, as well as a dose of Ferrari history. Surrounding the park, which is expected to open in 2008, will be hotels, shops, and everything else necessary to make the place the car world's equivalent of Disney Land.
