People can do all sorts of things for internet fame, including smashing a $3200 Ferrari windshield in order to replace a couple of $75 air-vents. Why do such a thing, you might ask.
Due to their odd placement, the vents in the 360 Modena can only be reached by either taking out the dashboard, or the windshield. Don’t act surprised, this is an early 2000’s Ferrari we’re talking about…
Rob, the protagonist of this video, opted for the faster solution. From his point of view, removing the windshield “seemed like the best bet”. The thing is, he opted to do it by completely damaging it with a baseball bat, while having a brand new one ready for replacement. Because doing it the old-fashioned way was too boring, apparently.
However, Rob somehow overlooked the fact that a car’s windshield isn’t designed to shatter, so he didn’t really get access to the vents. As that wasn’t cringe-worthy enough, the replacement part suffered some damage during shipping. Guess he didn’t check his new delivery was intact before pulling off that stunt.
