    Answer Key

    Error #1 : No Mondial 8 in 1993! (only in 1980-82)
    Error #2: It was not a 'lazy attempt to market to downmarket buyers' - IT was 20% more in cost vs the 308 and 328!
    Error #3: The engine in the Mondial 8 was all new, as was the qv, 3.2 and t. (It was never '7' years old)
    Error #4: It was never rated 210 hp in either US or Euro Spec
    Error #5: The body was not based on a 308
    Error #6 (bonus): The Mondial 8 (US Spec) had 2 bad reviews from C&D, R&T - the QV, 3.2, and t - received universal acclaim from the press.

    The writer did not spend too much time in getting history and details right but the artickle also lists many other super and dream cars including a Testarossa, FXX, F50, Maserati MC12...……….. Stop discussing this artickle since it is certainly not worth all this attention.

    Ferrari's are great cars but you must be lucky enough to own one to understand.
