“I changed cars, but I’m just as hungry as when I slept in a car”. With this sentence Achille Lauro accompanied the photo that portrays him next to one Ferrari 488 GTB, what appears to be his new car. The controversial singer has published on his Instagram profile “Achilleidol” the shot that portrays him next to the racing car of the Cavallino, showing the supercar with its flaming red. No Rolls-Royce therefore, which is the protagonist of one of his successes but one of the Prancing Horse cars that could soon be the number one jewel in his garage.

Being Achille Lauro it could also be a simple provocation and not the real purchase made by the singer, even if the words used would suggest precisely this possibility. Lauro De Marinis, real name of the Roman singer who is at the top of the charts in recent weeks thanks to the summer hit “Mille”, sung with Orietta Berti and Fedez, he therefore chose a Ferrari 488 GTB: it is a mid-engined berlinetta, powered by a powerful eight-cylinder engine. The technical specifications speak of a double-turbocharged 3.9-liter V8 capable of delivering 670 hp of maximum power and 760 Nm of torque. “I smoke a red apple, red like the Ferrari I’ll have” Achille Lauro sang in Purple Rain a few years ago. It seems he eventually made that dream a reality.
