Ferrari races a chariot…

In a modern spin on “Ben-Hur,” a Ferrari took on a two-horse chariot Thursday at a dirt track near Rome.

Fabio Barone spotted the chariot a half-lap headstart and also agreed not to use the traction-control technology on his Ferrari 458, Agence France-Press reported.

He still won, by a few seconds.

The duel took place on the track built at Cinecittà World for last year’s remake of the movie “Ben-Hur.”
