Custom Ferrari
6 Attachment(s)
This car was hand built for a Ferrari Club of Australia member.

It has been built on a 70’s 96” wheelbase 400 chassis that has been shortened to make it a 2 seater, turret and doors from a late 60's Intermeccanica coupe, dash from an ex-Le Mans 250GT (thrown away in the US when converted to LHD!).

The engine is a 5 litre quad cam V12 producing well in excess of 400bhp. The engine is now situated entirely behind the front axle line (as in a modern front engine V12 Ferrari), with a 5 speed gearbox. The owner has milled the side-draught inlet manifolds off the 400 cam covers and cast downdraft manifolds, the bonnet bulges result from the fuel injection system running through Webber DCNF throttle bodies.

The body is entirely hand beaten from steel, apart from the aluminium bonnet. Styled with cues from a number of 60’s Ferraris, the fit and finish is aimed to be of the absolute highest standard.

The owner also has a 365GTC in excellent condition.

It looks like an italian muscle car

That's because it is an Italian muscle car... :p

Looks cool, feels strange without the prancing horse on the hood. It's too familiar not to be a Ferrari. Cool stuff.

Oh wait... if you look carefully there is a badge on the hood but not the rear end...

I don't like the wheels.

NSXType-R 08-17-2006 09:03 AM

You're right, steel wheels don't work on it. The multispoke thingys should work much better.

this thing would eat any american muscle car from the 70's (except for the power crazy ones that cant turn). shows american muscle has potential but still is no match for european muscle

Since it's a one of a kind Ferrari, imagime what it's worth!! :eek:

Bob 08-19-2006 08:56 PM

But has ferrari authorized it? Without that, its not an official Ferrari, and is probably worth a lot less.
