Ford ends Ferrari legal action

2011-03-04 15:13

NAME DISPUTE: Ferrari sparked a legal despute over the launch of its 2011 title contender the F150.

Ford has called off its legal action against Formula 1 team Ferrari.

The American automaker filed the action after Ferrari called its 2011 car the F150, in tribute of the 150th anniversary of Italian unification, but F-150 is a trade-marked model of Ford's famous series of bakkies.

Ferrari has since renamed the 2011 car 'F150th Italia'.

Ford on Friday confirmed that it had filed a notice with the US District Court in Detroit for dismissal of the case.

"We are pleased we were able resolve this issue amicably," a Ford spokeswoman told the Detroit Free Press. "This resolution ensures that Ford's famous and distinctive F-150 trademark will be protected."
