Famous supercar manufacturer, Ferrari has banned popular singer, Justin Bieber, from buying its cars. Ferrari did this because Justin broke multiple codes of ethics of the brand. The manufacturer said that the singer’s behaviour is not right with the car and he is not respecting the maintenance and use of the car. Justin is not the only celebrity that is banned by Ferrari. Other celebrities like 50 Cent, Nicolas Cage and Kim Kardashian are also banned by Ferrari from buying its cars.
Justin Bieber owns a Ferrari 458 because of which he got into this trouble. The singer is known to modify his vehicles according to his preference and liking. He altered the colour of the Ferrari. It was originally white and then he changed it to electric blue. Justin did this because he was not satisfied with the colour. His Ferrari is of the 2011 model year and he once parked the supercar outside a nightclub in Beverly Hills. It took two weeks for a member of his staff to locate the Ferrari.
The singer also removed the Ferrari’s horse logo on the steering wheel. He also changed the alloy wheels, bolts and bolted on a wide body kit. He finally auctioned the Ferrari. It fetched $434,500 at the auction. Ferrari does not let you sell the vehicle in the first year of ownership. Moreover, the owner is supposed to inform Ferrari of the sale and the manufacturer does not let the owners do unauthorized modifications.
Because of all of this, the Ferrari decided to ban Justin Bieber. What does this mean? Well, Justin won’t be able to buy another Ferrari. Other famous personalities who are banned from buying Ferrari are automotive journalist Chris Harris, Deadmau5, Tunku Ismail Idris, Tyga, Blac Chyna, Floyd Mayweather Jr and Preston Henn.
Speaking of Ferrari 458, it is considered to be one of the best sounding engines in the automotive industry. Because it was the last car from Ferrari to have a naturally aspirated V8. It is a 4.5-litre unit that produces 562 hp at a screaming 9,000 rpm and a peak torque output of 540 Nm at 6,000 rpm. It came mated to a 7-speed automatic gearbox that transferred the power to only the rear wheels.
Justin Bieber also owns an Audi R8 that has been modified. He has wrapped his sports car in a leopard print which many people did not like because R8 is a very iconic car. It is one of the last cars that comes with a naturally aspirated V10. It is a 5.2-litre unit that produces 525 hp of max power and 510 Nm of peak torque. It has a top speed of 320 kmph and can hit a ton in 3.9 seconds.
The popular singer also owns a Rolls Royce Wraith that has been heavily customized. It looks like a floating vehicle. To do this, the modification shop covered up the wheels. The customization was done by West Coast Customs and they took inspiration from the Rolls Royce 103 EX concept.
