Chocolate F1 Car Goes On Show

Chocolate F1 CarA life-size chocolate model of a Ferrari Formula 1 car has been unveiled in Italy.

Confectioners spent more than a year making the car out of 4,405lbs (2,000kg) of Belgian chocolate.

It has now been delivered to Sorrento, near Naples, where it will be the centrepiece of a Ferrari owners club party.

Luigi Liberti, president of the Scuderia Ferrari Club Napoli, said: "It will go on display until the weekend and then will be smashed up with hammers and handed out to party guests - they will be given bits of the car to take home in a special bag."

The £12,000($24,000) chocolate Ferrari is based on an F2008, and has a red, edible coating.
