Not everyone is into cars, but those who do appreciate all things automotive realize just how much cool stuff one can find. Take this Ferrari 150 Italia Full Size Steering Wheel – it is perhaps the coolest thing I have seen today. The replica is the same scale as the real steering wheel that Ferrari driver Fernando Alonso uses in his car. Well I guess I should also mention that the other Ferrari driver, Felipe Massa, has the same steering wheel.
If you are an F1 fan – a Ferrari fan in particular – daydreaming about being behind the wheel of the famous red racing car is probably nothing new for you. For majority of us, in all probability, driving a Ferrari (much less owning one) will remain a dream. Heck, many will probably only see a Ferrari on TV or in the movies.
