The Porsche Carrera GT was infamous for having an all-carbon fiber frame and being just about the biggest liability ever. If you crashed it enough to damage the frame, that was basically it. So if you thought that was risky, then this custom made, completely carbon fiber Ferrari F430 Scuderia probably isn’t the best investment for you.
That’s because this F430, currently for sale at the Beverly Hills Ferrari dealership (where else, honestly?), has been given a completely new body made from 100% carbon fiber. And if you don’t think just having gray and black weavy body work on your car is unique enough, the factory Ferrari wheels have also been wrapped in carbon fiber. According to the dealership’s website, this process took over an entire year to complete and is being dubbed the 16M Scuderia. What does that stand for? Your guess is as good as ours.
So besides the liability factor, the price tag that displays a damn hefty $650,000 will probably be enough to discourage most buyers. But hey, it’s not like we’re in middle of a recession or anything…
