Replacing the motor on a Ferrari turned around for the owner of the courtMarch 1, 2020
Ferrari is about to file a lawsuit against a car enthusiast from New Zealand.
The reason for the conflict between the mechanic Ruben Bemrose from Wellington, New Zealand and the Italian automaker Ferrari was the installation of another powertrain on the 456 GT supercar. A motorist bought a broken car at the end of 2019, which had not only a damaged body, but also a destroyed motor.
Within two weeks, a mechanic in his garage Bemrose completely restored the body of a sports car, investing 13 thousand dollars in it. And instead of the idle native V12 engine, a rotor from Mazda was installed. Thanks to the diligence of the car enthusiast, the restored Ferrari won first place in the local customizer contest.
However, problems came along with fame, as the car company did not appreciate the efforts of the mechanic, considering the installation of another engine on his model an insult and threatened to file a lawsuit, demanding to immediately stop the operation of the tuned Ferrari.
