Ferrari Experiment (Not a Prank): Does a Supercar Attract Women?

Anybody who passed the age when obeying the parents in the morning is a major concern knows the answer to the question above isn't the simple yes/no type. Nevertheless, seeing things unfolding in real life can be amusing, which is why we've brought you the piece of footage at the bottom of the page.

We have to explain that most such videos go for the "prank" title nowadays, but the joke is actually on the viewers, as the shenanigans scream "staged" from miles away. Well, this isn't one of those clips, or at least it's made well enough not to bother one while watching it.

One of the conclusions to be drawn here is that you don't need to be uber-rich (we'll get to the numbers in a moment) to own a Ferrari these days. For instance, you can follow the example of the guy who came up with this clip and go for an F430. While you'll still have to pay anywhere between $100,000 and $150,000 for a reasonable example, the 458's predecessor still offers enough performance to allow you to enjoy the Prancing Horse spirit.

At this point, you might be wondering about the maintenance costs associated with a Maranello machine that's over one decade old. Once again, things are not as bad as you'd imagine, as car aficionado Rob Ferretti, who owns a small collection of similarly-aged exotics, has recently explained (in case you missed our story, you can find it here).

Oh, and in case the whole setup in this video seems familiar, it might be because you've seen the owner of this 430 (he goes by The Leviathan nickname) trying to make the most out of his Fezza on YouTube while staying reasonable. What? In a world where girls are paid for playing gold digger roles, we find driving around in doorless Ferrari reasonable.
