    Ferrari And The Pentagon

    How wheels are designed perfectly: Pentagon and Pentagramm or: the knowledge of the greek world

    Re: Ferrari And The Pentagon

    I'm not sure but this design may create some problems in certain arab countries. Am I wrong?

    If the wheels look like that I'll be happy. Nice work.

    You're probably talking about the jewish star... dunno, i don't think it's similar enough to be an issue.

    Re: Ferrari And The Pentagon

    Is there a Ferrari dealer in Tehran thats upset already?

    Its just a wheel design.

    If people wish to derive unintended meanings from it they should probably not be driving automobiles or do anything else that requires logical descision making.

    It should be fine. This is the satanic star, but it's been used before by Ferrari for the F50.

    David's star would be an issue in arabic countries and a lot of other places for that matter. It consists of two triangles, one over the other but inverted resulting in a six pointed star.

    I was talking about Arabs, not Persians, Jim.

    I know that the David's star looks slightly different but at first look... A good example of how "erratic" humans are: the Red Cross Organization. There is the red cross, the red half moon and although Israel uses the red david's star in their country, the "international" sign is a red crystal now (actually this can be used for other religions too like Hindi, etc.): Fact is: some arab red cross members opposed the david's star, I remember how much we were making fun of this stuff in a discussion with various doctors a few days ago. This is ridiculous. Being an enemy or adversary of a certain country is one thing but this stuff is almost childish. And because it fits this story: a friend (he is German and he is no Jew) worked in a hospital in Israel for a few months, some sort of mutual exchange. Since they all speak English, there wasn't a language problem. Now the interesting part: they had at the hospital a lot of patients from various arab countries, no kidding (one reason why I don't post the city and/or the hospital he was working in). And it gets even more "funny": when he arrived in Israel, he saw a huge number of white planes without any lettering on them, nothing. When he asked about this his collegues, they told him that these are planes from countries they actually don't have "official" relationship to like Saudi Arabia, etc. No lettering, so nobody knows where they're coming from.

    Now I'm sorry if I went a little bit too deep into politics but judging by signs, "white planes", etc., I think that people are very sensitive to certain symbols. This is why I don't think that this wheel design would be wise to use but it looks damned good.

    Re: Ferrari And The Pentagon

    One realistic fact beside the side mirrors is that Ferrari will use this wheel-design for the new F600 imola. Please take a closer look at the spy shot.

    Re: Ferrari And The Pentagon

    RC, don't worry. I know the diffrences between Arabs and Persians, Shia, Sunnis, Sufi Shias and Zoerastrians etc..

    Since Iran is the strongest and most ferverent anti israeli Muslim country,(except when they needed Israeli F4 parts, 105 and 155MM ammunition during their war with Iraq). So
    I mentioned Tehran. And partly because last week they came up with so many real estate ideas for Israel and also some new ideas about German history, that government might see
    Ferrari wheels as a real part of a non existent conspiracy.

    Sometimes at night, "all cats are grey." Consider that Arafat had accounts in Israeli banks and that Palestinian
    contractors and Israeli government people cut $$ deals to build the new border walls, so yeah anything can happen.

    Let ferrari be ferrari and use any wheel design they want to. For them to change a innocently designed item because
    some irrational extremists might be offended would be groveling appeasement.

    Of course, all appeasement, by nature, is groveling. . . .

    If this world would be ruled by car enthusiasts only...imagine: no more wars...just car races.

    Re: Ferrari And The Pentagon

    Its just wheels people. If people get upset then they shouldn't purchase the car..... IMHO.....
