It's the worlds fastest M & M! This lifesize model Ferrari is made of Belgian chocolate, 4,405 lbs worth to be exact, with a red candy coating.

The life-size chocolate Ferrari Formula 1 car took over a year to make and has been delivered to Sorrento, Italy for the Scuderia Ferrari Club Napoli party. It will be displayed at the beginning of the event, to be oohed and aahed, then smashed into a wall at 400 miles an hour (OK I made that part up.) It will actually be smashed though and pieces distributed in goody bags.

“The project started one year ago, just for fun, but then the Club Pasticceri Italiani started to get really enthusiastic and eventually it became a life-sized model,” said Luigi Liberti, president of the Scuderia Ferrari Club Napoli.

“They started melting the chocolate in 2007, at first copying a small-scale model of the Ferrari F2008, then getting the full scale model done using chocolate imported especially from Belgium.” Stats for Lifesize Formula 1 Car is Edible Trending: Older & Average
