Typically, auto enthusiasts prefer using Pontiac Fieros for their replica builds, but this one from Japan decided to transform a 1989 Mazda RX-7 into a strange Ferrari F40 knockoff. Power comes from a turbocharged 13B-T twin-rotor engine making 182 hp and 181 lb-ft of torque, mated to a 5-speed manual transmission, which enables it to hit 60 mph in 6.5-seconds. In other words, this knockoff won’t be fooling anyone on the road, even if they don’t know much about cars.
Fortunately (or unfortunately), the owner only wants $22,263 USD for it, although there would be additional fees if you wanted to bring the vehicle stateside. In related news, there was a limited edition Infini model released in Japan that featured an upgraded suspension, retuned ECU, more powerful engine, lightweight 15-inch BBS aluminum alloy wheels, a special aero bumper kit, and bronze colored window glass.
