Ferrari 458 on Price is Right

That has to hurt.

http://jalopnik.com/watch-this-woman...347?autoplay=1


"If you get on The Price Is Right, you don't want a dining set. You don't want a jacuzzi. You don't want to guess the price of popcorn for Plinko chips. You want A NEWWW CAAAARRRRRRR! Earlier today, one woman had a chance to win a Ferrari 458 Spyder. And she lost. Badly.

The contestant, Therese, had to play Three Strikes to have a chance to get the 458 Spyder. They even had to add a sixth number to the board in order to accomodate the price of the Ferrari.

Therese doesn't really know how much a Ferrari costs. At all, much like the vast majority of the public.

She knows it's expensive. But she thinks it's $100,000 expensive. It's more than that. Then she goes the other way and says it's $800,000. It's less than that. Then she goes for $600,000 expensive. Yeah, Therese doesn't end up winning the car.

The ancillary costs (taxes, insurance, etc) that would be associated with the Ferrari could be far too much to handle for pretty much anyone that can't already afford one. Still, cool of Drew Carey and TPIR to try and give one away. Also, she got on the show. We know how exciting that can be."

What would happen if she did win that and didn't have the money to pay the taxes to assume ownership?

Let boyfriend and neighbors do sick burnouts,then crash it for insurance money, or sell it and keep the cash after all the taxes.

was the video cut? I didn't see her guess anything at all. She pulled out an "X" on the first try and the game was over.

Perhaps you should stop responding. It's a no-win for you here. :dunno:

The only logical step would be to sell it, buy a rare 1980 Ferrari 308 with a sunroof, and buy several 4 unit rental units in the middle of Detroit. Then profit.

Actually shocked they were giving that away. It always used to be lame stuff, like fords and chevys. Hell, the showcases at the end didn't even come close to this...highest i ever saw was like $65000

Good thing she lost it. Would've been ghettoed out (if she could even afford the taxes) over night and crashed the next day
