The New Stratos project is one that has captured the imagination of car enthusiasts across the globe. It also captured the imagination of 40 wealthy enthusiasts who were ready to splash the cash and buy one. Pininfarina, the company responsible for the styling, was ready to build them.
Not any more.
Ferrari is throwing its toys out of the cot and telling the New Stratos backers that they won’t allow Pininfarina to supply their services to the F430-based project. Pretty piss poor, don’t you think?
The project can now only go ahead with the use of companies that are not dependent on Ferrari.
