Uh Oh, Are You a Ferrari Bro?

ferrari bro car video satire

To say that Ferrari is the measuring stick of the sports car world would be a massive understatement. Enzo Ferrari effectively wrote the book on go-fast performance and looks. But being top-of-the-pile has a few drawbacks… mainly, you get a fair share of, shall we say, overzealous new owners.

We’ll call them the ‘Ferrari Bros’ – the guys who treat a brand new Ferrari 458 like a rental car, make their way across town in a serious of street races, and think you’re talking about a Pontiac when you mention the word ‘GTO‘. Not sure what we’re on about? This hilarious video from Car Bros does a pretty comprehensive job of driving the point home. Take a look.

The video highlights the life and times of Ferrari bro Damien Stonebrook in stellar parody, from his mention of “gran prixes” to the totally untrue story about Enzo Ferrari going to the Lamborghini brothers to buy a car, and even filling up the car with standard 87 octane gas. One YouTube commenter phrases it well, “Satirical gold.”

No, we’re not saying all Ferrari owners are like this but it’s this image of the ‘bro’ that is much more popularized than the guy who meticulously waxes his ’70s berlinetta boxer every week in anticipation for a Ferrari club meet. We can presume this ‘bro’ won’t be getting that invite.

There are a number of things that the 1980s weren’t known for…long-lasting fashion being one of them. But in terms of sports car styling, I think you’ll agree that a few ’80s car designers knew what they were doing, especially some of the ones working at Porsche and Ferrari.  Continue Reading »
