Italo-Ferrari-style high-speed train

French National Railways (SNCF) and Ferrari join venture produced new high speed train called Italo. The Italo debuts April 28 and provide train service between major Italian cities than state-run Trenitalia.

Ferrari chairman Luca di Montezemoto is a major shareholder in (and chairman of) NTV, as is French National Railways (SNCF). The cars are painted Ferrari-style red and feature a stylized hare on the side.

Italo trains will have 11 cars with a capacity of 460 passengers. The first, business, and economy classes — called Club, Prima, and Smart — will feature leather seats, free Wi-Fi, and ceiling-mounted screens in some cars. The cheapest ticket from Milan to Rome (about 300 miles) will cost about $60.

“This is the quickest train today. There is no other train like it. This train can go 360 kilometers an hour but we are obliged not to go faster than 300,” Montezemolo, chairman of NTV said, referring to the limits of the infrastructure of the Italian rail system.

Operated by Nuovo Trasporto Viaggiatori (NTV), the train is being billed as the most advanced train in Europe. NTV expects to attract 9 million annual passengers by the end of 2014.
