Recalls: The Ferrari 458 Italia and Spider get recalled in the US

Get this. The Ferrari 458 Italia and 458 Spider are being recalled by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration not because it’ll spontaneous combust, but because someone could get trapped in the golf hole that they call a trunk.

But really, we wonder, how one could end inside a 458’s tiny boot. Should one be accidentally tempted and abducted in the trunk of a 458, they should be able to escape out of the front by pulling a release. But there is no release. So the NHTSA is instructing all 458s to be retrofitted with an inner trunk release so the captive could open the trunk when the kidnapper is speeding away, it then flies back into the windshield his/her head, and the Ferrari crashes and everyone dies.

Because that makes total and complete sense! I hope you sense my sarcasm, by the way. Owners will be notified by Ferrari and be required to return their cars for modifications. So if you’re planning on abducting anyone in the near future, do not use a Ferrari 458 or you will all be killed. And don’t forget to ignore the ones that say “free candy.”
