The counterfeit Ferrari was bought in the United States by a Dutch company specializing in kit cars.

Unfortunately for Ferrari, the judge ruled that the replica had not turned out so well that there was copyright infringement. The lines did not match and, according to the judge, many details were so different from the original that it was not a copy of a Daytona. However, the Ferrari logos did infringe the Italian manufacturer’s trademark. Still, the owner got his car back, on the condition that all logos would be removed.
