WTF Friday: Ferrari winter beater, no big deal

7

While I could have easily saved these pictures for a Winter Wednesday post I figured it would be more fun to post it as a WTF Friday and show you out of town viewers how we do it in the GTA. I’m not sure if this Ferrari owner just didn’t check the weather when he headed out in the morning or what but he learned quick that a 355 Spyder is not really a capable winter machine. Especially with what I can only assume are factory equip wheels and tires.

I had enough issues with the 255 all seasons on my old truck in the winter so I can’t imagine that this driver got very far.

Everyone from this office was probably having a good chuckle

Sucks to get your Ferrari stuck as a public transit vehicle passes, at least we know the owner can afford the fare

This driver brought his out the following day, wasn't quite as bad weather wise

Maybe these guys both watched this youtube video of this rich bloke driving his Maserati MC12 around town in the winter, who knows.

If you are going to take an exotic out in the winter make sure it’s awd at least:

90 new stickers tomorrow! I’ll be posting pictures of readers rides with stickers on Monday so feel free to send yours in before then, [email protected] if you don’t already know.

Features have been slowing down due to most people whipping their winter beaters or just plain not working on their cars now that it’s cold here in Toronto but I’ve got a few builds and what not I have been keeping my eye on so the content will keep on coming no worries there 😉

  1. Yay 550 Maranello! My favorite, and favorite color even. 🙂 When I get mine, I fully plan on driving it in all sorts of weather… She’s a car and built to be driven, that’s all, right?

    Just makes me laugh when there are guys that won’t take them out in the rain…. You wash your car, right? OMG it gets wet and is okay then!!!!

    Anyhow, I’ll let you know how it goes when I get mine… In, oh, fifteen years. 😛 (Hoping this isn’t a duplicate comment, if so, delete one lol. I tried and it spazzed on me or something & I’m still not fully awake yet.)

  2. The 550 picture isn’t so bad, I mean its just a little wet outside and the snow isn’t really deep however the 355 is just idiotic.

    That car just has to have just lowered in value 30% at least!

  3. It’s -30 in Calgary today and I saw it again.. a red Testarossa. This old guy drives this as a winter beater. I’ve seen it almost every week, every winter for the last 2 years I’ve been working downtown. I don’t think he get’s stuck oddly enough.
