The Olympic Flame rode in style Saturday in a Ferrari as the torch continued its trek toward Turin for the Winter Games.
Luca Badoer, the test driver for Ferrari's Formula One team, received the flame from a torchbearer and drove it slowly through the company's headquarters in a red Ferrari F-430 Spider.
From Maranello, the torch moved towards Reggio Emilia and Parma, where the day's travel ended.
The torch moves east toward Venice Sunday and will continue traveling through Italy until it ignites the Olympic Cauldron at the Opening Ceremonies February 10th in Turin.
