Red Ferrari in ‘Dark of the Moon’ Not Mirage?

{mosimage}So says Nelson in reply to a comment at fellow site TFW2005 regarding the red Ferrari seen recently in the latest TV spot from Transformers: Dark of the Moon:

Because he's not Mirage in the film.

In reply to another poster's question over at the Shoot For The Edit forums over who the Ferrari is:

All I will say is that he speaks with an Italian accent and is named after a famous Italian. 

While the name has been leaked and used in various adaptations and reading materials, one has to remember that the scripts are generally based on either final or near final drafts of the script, and that book-related add-ons need months before publication. Contrast that in films or TVs where the changes can be made at least weeks ahead of general release.
