I’ve read that Ferrari have managed to protect the term 250 GTO though. Weird that one article said that there were only 36 built. One of them lives not two miles from my house and never realized they were that rare (and it’s real, the guy owns porsches, lotus race cars, Jag race cars etc).

I was reading recently that ‘Land Rover’ recently tried to protect the shape of the Defender due to that billionaire who is doing the ‘New Defender’ and they got turned away as well.

Weird that they never had it protected.

Some of the people commenting mentioned that the original Mini didn’t have the shape protected either. Makes you wonder how many other classic Marques don’t.

I understand the Aston M only own the rights to some (but not all) of their designs. I wonder if that’s because of outsourcing some like the Zagato?
