And it didn't end when he kicked Enzo's butt with the GT40 either lol. Henry II seeks more revenge lol.

I love my V8, but I'd love it more if all 8 cylinders worked. (they do now)

Ferrari bows to Ford legal pressure, renames F1 car F150th Italia

Filed under: Government/Legal, Ford, Ferrari


According to AutoWeek, Ferrari is bowing to a freshly filed Ford lawsuit, renaming its new Formula One racer the F150th Italia.

Originally dubbed 'F150,' the name quickly raised the hackles of the Blue Oval's legal team, which has a longstanding claim to that alphanumeric naming convention thanks to its F-150 full-size pickup line. Ferrari had itself chosen the F150 moniker in observance of 150 years of Italian unity.

AutoWeek notes that the revised name was first revealed today on a new story published about the car's testing in Jerez, Spain on Ferrari's official website.

Thus far, Ferrari has made no official comment on the name change, or the lawsuit that Ford attorneys filed on Wednesday in Detroit.

*UPDATE: Official Ferrari statement on the naming scrum added after the jump.
