    Art graduate Lauren Porter knitted a Ferrari sportscar for her honours degree at Bath Spa University.

    The classic red bodywork consists of 250 squares of garter stitch made by Lauren and 20 family members and friends.

    The windows are V-shaped stocking stitch, while the details are crochet and the badge is embroidered.

    It's all supported by a steel frame which Lauren, 22, of Greatham, Hants, welded herself.

    That is awesome, I wonder what Ferrari had to say, this will give them some good publicity.
