    Did you read the other argument Ferrari brings to the table for introducing hybrid car models?

    “A lot of our clients live in cities which we presume to be closed off for petrol-engine powered cars in the next 10 years.” Serious!

    Nothing better than living in the center of Rome and being able to park the Ferrari in the basement garage! Thumbs up for the foresight of Ferrari!

    What a world.

    Faster cars getting us places more quickly, so that The Man in the Mirror can reflect on the fact that the same sack of protoplasm is staring him in the face a few minutes earlier!

    For what?
