Dear Juan,    (01)

Regarding "Ferrari 458 Italia" as a specialization of sports car 
seems reasonable to me.    (02)

However the important information is that this class is a "model" as 
defined by the marketing department. Probably the manufacturing 
department has a different taxonomy, where instances of many 
different classes can be sold as "Ferrari 458 Italia" because they 
look similar on the outside. So perhaps we have in Turtle:    (03)

:myCar          a                       ferrari:458Italia .    (04)

ferrari:458Italia               rdfs:subClassOf         :sportsCar ;
:ClassOfArtifactDefinedByTheMarketingDepartment .    (05)

Best regards,
David    (06)
