It gives the compound curves of the liftig body a good perspective.

Ferrari paint is very appropiate considering it is pretty much the fastest turbo-prop.

I've read somewhere that Ferrari bought Piaggio and this plane construction line. Does anyone here can confirm ?

Ferrari's son is the president of Piaggio AI, and Ferrari's race team uses P180 for most travels. I was lucky flying on it.

I love the Piaggio -- makes to the Beech KingAir seem like a schoolbus. Yes, Peiro Ferrari is a major investor in Piaggio Aero. These things are used to transport the Scuderia Ferrari brass all about Europe when the F-1 circus comes back home to that continent.

Ferrari did in fact purchase Piaggio about two years ago. However they are still maintaining the Piaggio brand name as well as the "Avanti". I have heard that support from the previous Piaggio was terrible and this has helped.

This "Avanti" is the Beechcraft Starship scourage. It is better. Its spec's are near a Learjet. Hence the emblem on the engine. 5 props? This thing moves. Unfoutunetly it is made of composite materials. Not a big seller in the USA.

I never thought a P-180 could be remotely attractive until I saw this pic. Nice colors!

Look at the sleek design. Actually it doesn't surprises me that Ferrari owns this. Just another piece of Italian craftsmanship. Very nice!
