Stupid Things People Say to a Ferrari 360 Owner at a Gas Station

Named after the birthplace of Enzo Ferrari and powered by a 3.6-liter V8 engine, the Ferrari 360 was very cool… in the year 2000. Nowadays, it's considered one of the first modern day Ferraris, still desirable, but not worth a second or third look like the LaFerrari.

A guy by the name Doug DeMuro, who owns a Ferrari 360 Modena and likes to make Youtube videos about it, recently shot a funny which shows why it's tough to get gas when you own an exotic car. Random people walk up to him, telling random facts about why their cars are better than the Maranello marvel. And since this is America, muscle car fans and hybrid tree-huggers are naturally included.

Our favorite is the guy in the Lexus IS F, who says his car is more powerful and a little faster than the Ferrari. No, it's not, sir! Because the 360 weighs just 1,290 kg (2,844 lbs), it takes only 4.3 seconds to reach 62mph, compared to 4.8 seconds in your Lexus.

Judging form the number of people who come up to Doug and say the weirdest stuff, the video feels a little fake. But from our own experience of reviewing awesome cars like the Ferrari, we can tell you that people do actually like to start random conversations and sometimes point out their cars have more power than what we're reviewing.

Something else we're frequently asked is what we do for a living to own a supercar. A sign of insecurity or a manifestation of pride? We'll let you be the judge of that. And before you ask us, we usually tell them we invented a famous app for Facebook.

Mihnea's favorite cars have already been built, the so-called modern classics from the '80s and '90s. He also loves local car culture from all over the world, so don't be surprised to see him getting excited about weird Japanese imports, low-rider VWs out of Germany, replicas from Russia or LS swaps down in Florida.
