    seriously, why would you want a car that has a vague resembelence to something exotic, but in reality is built around a knackered old MR2 /SIERRA/Metro, and even some one who knows very little about cars can see its a piss poor copy, usually made out of plastic.

    what sort of people buy these things?,or is it me just being a misery Ar*e.
    i refer you to the following examples...

    Love the Ferrari, they couldn't even get the wheelarches to fit right over the Beetle (or whatever it's based on) chassis. It's no different to putting a whaletail on a Sierra 1.6 really just more extreme. What I don't understand is the really good ones, where it's almost impossible to tell. All that work and expense, for what?
    I'd rather take a Ferrari chassis and put a Metro body on it, now that would be fun.

    I have to admit that this one looks cool, and I'm sure the owner didn't need to spend the £150k+ to get an Ferrari F40, even though it isn't as quick as the real thing! :racer:

    Probably his bank statement, saying look how much money I saved by not buying the real thing...

    Or maybe he has a pic of a ferrari engine imprinted onto the perspex???

    It's just fraud IMO, says a lot about the owner.

    Well the mr2 is rwd so possibly a lovely 2.0 16v....

    Saw one with a testarossa kit on it...The guy had the chrome elbow on the go and looked like he thought he was the bees knees. I had a laugh and thought....My cars considerably better than yowes.
