In the world of auto theft, you wouldn’t be called insane to think that stealing a Ferrari is at the top of every would-be-thief’s list. After all they are some of the most highly sought after cars in the entire world. What you might be called insane for is thinking that stealing THE Ferrari would be at the top of the same list. By “the” I mean Enzo himself. Yea, this is that strange.
According to Automotive News, a plan was hatched by some genius to exhume the body of Enzo Ferrari and hold it for random. If your reaction to that statement was, “what in the actual fuck?” then you are not alone.
Italian investigators said on Tuesday they had foiled a plot to steal the body of legendary Formula One racing pioneer Enzo Ferrari and demand a ransom.
Ferrari, founder of the company that produces some of the world’s fastest and most expensive cars, died in 1988 at the age of 90 after making the company’s prancing horse logo an internationally recognized brand.
Police in Nuoro on the island of Sardinia told a news conference they suspected that a gang had planned to demand a ransom from the Ferrari family or company after spiriting away the body.
I think idiot criminal should just stick to stealing cars. In fact, don’t even do that. Maybe just get a job and buy a car like a normal human. Thankfully these morons were found out during a drug trafficking and arms bust and the plot was unveiled.
Seriously how insane are people these days…
