Oh come on guys - this could be fun!!

You can't just go back to the bloke and say - No, you're wrong, and actually you're an idiot too.

You should go back to him and say - Yeah, absolutely, I read up about it and you're right. I also didn't realise that all Lamborghini's built since 1988 use Mercedes engines, apart from the Murcielago which runs a gas turbine! See if the idiot bites on that!!! :green:

i think that that is one perfomance "specialist" that might go bankrupt if he keeps telling stuff like that to costumers.
nobody will trust him to bring their cars in with him

No actually it is true!!

Ferrari did a deal with GM last year due to union problems in GM's own engine plants which were limiting their production rates. The agreement was that GM would produce the engines for all current Ferraris (a smaller volume of units) and Ferrari will produce the engines for the GM range. That's why they had the large engine factory rebuild at Ferrari late last year.

So your friend is correct - get him to look closely at any new Chev motor & he will see the "Ferrari" stamp on it!

Either that or he's an idiot. :green:

:lol:

GM did a deal with FIAT Auto for the cross-holding of each other's shares. They also wanted to do platform sharing. Ferrari is not under FIAT Auto but under the FIAT Spa - the holding company. So were never in the deal at all.
