The new Ferrari Enzo (Ferrari F150 / F70) seems to have been confirmed for a debut at the 2013 Geneva Motor Show. But is it a real Ferrari Instagram account?
Update: As we suspected, the ‘announcement’ on Instagram of the Geneva debut of the F150 was a fake. Ferrari tell us their lawyers are investigating.
The source of the confirmation is a post on Instagram that appears to be by Ferrari, but we wonder how real it is.
The Ferrari account on Instagram is ‘oficialferrari’, which seems an odd name for a Ferrari account. ‘Official’ in Italian is ‘ufficiale’, not oficial (although it is in Spanish). The announcement is accompanied by a teaser photo of the new F150 (above) which looks just like a photo of the Ferrari F70/F150 we had in December.
To add to all that doubt, the text for the announcement is not exactly the best example of a well crafted release from the world’s most successful supercar company. It reads:
Geneva Motor Show I am coming to take your hearts away. The Most Powerful HyperFerrari on its way to take your breath away, a hypercar which can eclipse any competition.
Formula1 technology direct inhereted into this masterpiece, a car which can turn into a cornor as quick as a Formula1 car, a car packed with downforce as a real Formula1 car. #destroythecompetition #forzaferrari
So is it real? Who knows. But, real or not, it’s all but certain the new Ferrari F150 will be at Geneva, as will its nemesis – the new McLaren P1.
