    Fast forward to a day when hand built will be irrelevant???…you can get customisation and personalisation at mass production prices…and the Ferrari’s of this world trade order winning artisan craftsmanship for order winning bleeding edge technologies such as active aerodynamics and turbocharging (again)…lets see how long Ducati can remain hand built in Italy under Audi ownership and increasing lure of automation technologies
