He traveled driving a Ferrari F430. Too bad it was fake, homemade. Thus a 26-year-old from Asti landed in trouble, discovered by the Guardia di Finanza of the Provincial Command of Asti. The young man had been stopped in recent days by a patrol from the Asti economic-financial police unit during a territorial check in the city streets.
Something in that car had made the agents of the Fiamme Gialle suspicious, so they left
investigations. The car turned out to be a Toyota MR” Coupe, transformed in the bodywork and external accessories to make it completely similar to a Prancing Horse car: emblems, logos and original mechanical parts of the manufacturer, such as rims, brake calipers, front and rear bonnet, wheel arches and steering wheel, in fact, are been replaced with products apparently identical to those of the well-known sports model produced from 2004 to 2009 with Pininfarina design by the prestigious Maranello house. The forgery was also confirmed by the experts who intervened after the car was stopped.
The car was seized and the owner reported to the Public Prosecutor’s Office of Asti for using registered trademarks without authorisation.
