Ferrari in rain -true story

This is just so hard to believe:

Put the top up on the 348, turned on AC and drove in rain; things on windshield move water so I could see.

When I returned got out of car and inspected and there was no rain damage to car. Car seemed to be cleaner than when I left.

I believe this proves that Ferrari's can be driven in rain but only by an expert.

Are you crazy ? Nuts ? You are defing all rules of modern society and nature. I can't understand why a rational human would do something like that. What's next ? I think you are just bragging about your AC working. I have a spyder also. Do you think that if I get the AC fixed that I may do the same thing ?

If there's no pictures, it never happened.

Of all the narcissists I know, I love me the most.

Sounds like great fun but I wouldn't want to void my warranty.

You just lowered the value considerably with "used" windshield wipers.

Your loss. I agree with Dave that it didn't truly happen until we see pictures.

I'll take your rain and raise you...


(I don't necessarily recommend you try this at home though!)

I had my AC on.

Can't do that at home as the only white stuff here is sand and cocaine and it's just to expensive to drive on cocaine.

Great shot in the snow. Don't know how you do that upside down text Granucci but impressive.

Your enemies are currently rain and snow hey. Mine is heat. The roads melt at 115F, bitumen sticking everywhere. Car badges are falling off as the glues melt. My 16M safely in the garage, or so I thought. Some aerosol cans have apparently been exploding in the heat. Going home now to rid my garage of anything that might go boom boom.

Now if I could just find some rain or snow. We could use it. Mine is still dirty from driving it in the last rain storm we had here a while back.

My garage door dripped on my car today.

Talk about a close call.
