Ferrari 150th Italia

As reported yesterday, Ford sued Ferrari for trademark infringement and cybersquatting for using its registered F-150 trademark on the 2011 Ferrari Formula One race car called the F-150. Ford wanted Ferrari to stop using F150 on any products in the United States and was seeking $100,000 in damages under the Anticybersquatting Consumer Protection Act.

Ferrari today quickly settled with FoMoCo and renamed the 2011 Formula One car the F150th Italia.

A story about the progress on the car showed the new name change.

“The first day of testing for Scuderia Ferrari Marlboro got off on the right foot at the Cheste circuit, near Valencia. Before the lunch break, Fernando Alonso completed just over 200 kilometers at the wheel of the Ferrari F150th Italia.”

Ferrari original named its car to celebrate 150 years of Italian unity.
