Harry for this one I have to ask the definition of a model. I suspect that this is a display version of the car. They are not operational race cars and are taken to events for display only. They do not have 90% of the stuff that would make the car work so in a sense they are 1:1 models. Often they are windtunnel models. So, my question. If that were true, would that be a model or real for this forum?
Pete


As Pete said. So I will assume for this that it is real not a model or prototype

Logically, regardless of modifications, if it's a 1:1 I would have to call it real.

If anyone can prove that this is a full-scale "model," show us the proof. :lol:

Not only that, but the lack of any antennas for telemetry and team communtications. As an F1 fan, if this turns out to be real, I'll eat my Ferrari hat!! :( :( :(

And thats why I google....Harry can fool us with images that are poor.....I will find the image....you can see the difference in these two pictures..same source.

The poor quality is a trick to make you think model.

This one was quite easy....too many Dzus fasteners on this car........

Harry - It is a presentation car, so by your definition it is real. It is made of real Ferrari parts and it looks like the real deal but as a presentation car only Ferrari knows if it is a operational 2008 race car. I have seen a number of Fomula 1 unvailings and they almost never fire the car up or drive it on or off the stage so we will never know its status. So for future posting presentation=real. Your game, your rules. :(

For several years F1 cars had what amounted to wheel covers. They were mounted on bearings and bottom weighted to hold their position. They all had some kind of air intake or exhaust to help cool the brakes. Since band by the FIA.
