Owning a luxury sports car is sure something to boast about but a German fashion designer has learnt that show off can turn costly too! Ferrari, the Italian luxury carmaker is not impressed with the way fashion designer Philipp Plein used the vehicle for his pictures. They have sent a notice to the owner of green coloured Ferrari 812 Superfast for posting pictures on his Instagram with nude models and also shoes on the car. Designer Plein used the green Ferrari in a few pictures on his Instagram and he received a notice from the company's lawyers for his pictures being 'totally inconsistent with Ferrari’s brand perception' using them as mere props!

Plein also put up a picture of the notice he has received from the company and lashed out at them for sending a letter despite him being a valuable customer to them. As per the letter, Plein must take down all Instagram posts or they will begin legal action. However, the pictures are still up on Plein's profile. He called the letter a 'Love Letter from Ferrari,' expressing his disappointing at using his personal car for personal use. World’s Most Expensive Car: Ferrari 250 GTO Sold at Rs 537 Crore, Check Video.

Plein also has some pictures in which he has kept his shoes on the top of his luxury model. As per the letter, "Ferrari’s trademarks and model cars are associated in your pictures with a lifestyle totally inconsistent with Ferrari’s brand perception, in connection with performers making sexual innuendos and using Ferrari cars as props in a manner which is per se distasteful." Brand New Rs 4.5 Crore Worth Ferrari Destroyed in Seconds As Woman Loses Control, Watch Video.

Plein too has not taken the matter lightly as the letter states the company would take legal action. The mentioned that he has bought 4 Ferraris in the last 10 years. He called it a ridiculous claim by the company and asked the CEO to treat loyal customers better. People supported him and said that it is his personal car and he can post pictures as he wants to, plus he has paid for it, so the car isn't with Ferraris anymore. While the images are still up on Plein's account, it is not yet clear if the company has begun with a lawsuit in the matter.
