Explosive: The fake looks like the real Ferrari 312T from 1975 in photos. Niki Lauda took it to his first world title as a team-mate of the Swiss Clay Regazzoni.
The racing car was apparently intended to be exported to Switzerland and, according to the owner, used there as a simulator. In the customs papers, the Ferrari was described as a “fiberglass show car”.
Logical: The customs officers were suspicious of the low declared value and the construction company’s transporter and confiscated the replica. There is now a complaint for counterfeiting, trading and selling counterfeit branded products.
But how did the action get public? After their work, the Italian customs officers posed next to the Ferrari and posted the photo on their Facebook page. Italy is and will remain a Ferrari country!
