SP Let's start with something we agree on. There's not much to fault about Ferrari's current range of cars, is there?
PH No, they're fabulous. That's why we filled last month's magazine with them. They look and sound and go and handle better than ever. They're better-made and more usable. Heck, even the ones that have been criticised as off-brand - FF, Cali - are far and away the raciest cars of their kind.
SP But you must admit some of Ferrari's wider business activities have more than a whiff of Stilton about them. There are now some two dozen Ferrari stores around the world, flogging everything from Prancing Horse-branded leather jackets to bathing shorts to domino sets to cigar boxes to carbon-fibre photo frames and any other Maranello-infested nonsense you can imagine. There's even - and I'm not making this up - a rosso corsa Ferrari hatbox, yours for £238. Shipping not included. Anyone who buys a rosso corsa Ferrari hatbox is not someone I want to have a drink with.
