    Not sure if this has been posted before, if it has bite me, I hadn't seen it before :D If it's real, it's pretty damn cool.

    With a lot of hotwheel people walking around too. :)

    My bet is that it is photoshopped.

    Where are the shadows? Even the trees don't appear to be casting any shade in the upper right... looks like a photo chop to me.

    Saw that picture in Sicily when I was there back in 1998. It was supposed to be real, taken at a big Ferrari Club Italia event. I bet it's real.

    Do you have that picture in a larger size? I would be interested in anything 1024 or greater.

    Thanks,

    I don't doubt it, but I bet it took a lot of coordination to get it just right.

    Very cool. Do you have a larger version?

    I'm sure it's real. If you think about it, it was probably easier to stage the cars than it would have been to photoshop all those little cars into a shape.

    looks fake, look at the grass, on the left you can tell there is some cloud cover look at the rooftops of the cars on the left side of the frame and the right side. I would expect to see some gradual fade from left to right, left being darker. also is that ground completely level?

    then again if it is real i congratulate the person that coordinated all those cars for a completely useless photo op.

    I'm 100% positive it's real. I saw it in Cavallino, Forza and other magazines. Will have to look it up to know what it was all about! But it is real!! :D

    okay...here I am again. And I'm not so sure anymore about that pic. The one(s) in Cavallino I have found...can't scan them unfortunately at the moment....but I will decribe:

    In the picture you see a 'prancing horse' made out of Ferrari's in a circle made out of Ferraris. The picture was taken during an Oldtimer Grand Prix in Germany in 1990.

    You can see the pics in Cavallino 60 and 63!

    I know I have also seen the word 'Ferrari' spellt out in Ferraris but I can't find that picture at the moment. Perhaps the picture seen here is made of those two toghether, or it is real....
