Bo Guagua’s Red Ferrari, or Black Audi?

The fall of Bo Xilai, a former Chinese government top official, started from the tale of his son, Bo Guagua’s party. It is said that Bo Guagua drove a red Ferrari to a dinner party with then the United States ambassador  Jon M. Huntsman Jr‘s daughters in the end of 2011. This story started to circulate from the mouth of Mr. Huntsman and eventually became a corruption scandal to bring down Bo Xilai from his political career this year. But is the story really true? I will leave the following two stories for you to make your own judgment.
