On a good day, if you are emotionally attached to a car you can’t afford, all you need do is… download its images from the internet, buy the car magazine or get the wall poster like most of us did in our university days.
But what would you do if the book costs more than the car itself? Like the Ferrari book you are seeing in the attached pictures which cost $150,000. That would buy a used Ferrari and leave you with some change.
The book is named “The Official Ferrari Opus“. It’s a product of UK-based Kraken Opus, which publishes high-end heavy and expensive books for those wealthy enough to buy the Ferrari 10 times over. It weighs 36 kg and comes in different editions ranging from the Classic Edition to the Diamante Edition.
This top Diamante Edition features a red leather binding with a diamond-encrusted Ferrari Horse emblem with a carbon-fiber case. The book was hand-signed by the Scuderia’s drivers and the company’s chairman at the time: Fernando Alonso, Felipe Massa, and Luca di Montezemolo. You’ll also get a set of white gloves to keep the pages of the book squeaky clean.
The Official Ferrari Opus had an original price tag of $275,000 when it was published but it will now be auctioned for an average price of $150,000 in New York.
Would you buy the Ferrari Book instead of the Ferrari Car at that price? Or you won’t even buy any of the two?
