I saw this on the AE site.

I think it is a joke.

Would Ferrari call a new testarossa 712MV  "Maiale Volante"--Meaning Flying Pig?

Definitely a joke

The article reads:-

The Maiale Volante is available in a choice of two new colours as part of the Grassodivacca Scaglietti Personalisation Programme: Rosso Sciocco or Bianco Asino, aimed at Ferrari’s most passionate, loyal customers who demand the unique combination of exclusivity and the remarkable driving experience that only Ferrari can offer.

Translation: The flying pig is available iin a choice of two new colours as part of the  Cow Fat Scaglietti Personalisation Programme: Red Donkey  or White Donkey, aimed at Ferrari’s most passionate, loyal customers who demand the unique combination of exclusivity and the remarkable driving experience that only Ferrari can offer.


Ashley...someone has made an ASS out of the forum! :doh:

I came across the article a few weeks ago, and had a brief read obviously not paying too much attention.

Noticed the date  and was wondering why i hadn't heard any more.

Was chatting to some one about it yesterday, which got me curious.

Also noted in the article :-
"The 712MV features a 7 Liter V12 developing 704 prancing horses, and a beautifully crafted combination of veloce-pollo alcantara and carbon-fiber interior, underscored by a silver “limited series” plaque with each car numbered as part of the exclusive XXV Anniversario commemoration"

Meaning - Flying Chicken

I love some of the terms:

Maiale Volante= flying pig
veloce-pollo alcantara = fast chicken alcantara
Grassodivacca Scaglietti Personalisation Programme= Cow fat Scaglietti Personalisation Programme
Rosso Sciocco or Bianco Asino= Silly Red or donkey white.

Got your order in? :D

You would have to be a silly donkey to order a flying pig :D

But i am sure there are many neglected Ferrari's out there that can be termed "flying pigs"

Volante means steering wheel, so it basically is saying they handle like a pig. Volare is flying

No I am not vulnerable...I am the guy that picked it up.

Ash is Vulnerable..Other Media pulled the article relatively quickly.

Sorry Ash..you need to brush up on your Italian.
I am sure there are some nice Italian girls in Adelaide that can teach you the "lingo"
