What do you get when you cross a Chevrolet K5 Blazer with a Pontiac Fiero and Ferrari Testarossa? A Fierrari of course. Offered for just $9,500 on Craigslist a few months ago, the bizarre vehicle is now headed to the 2020 Barrett Jackson auction in Scottsdale, Arizona. The only original part left on this vehicle is its shell, as even the engine is no longer mounted mid-mounted, but has been moved up front. Read more for additional pictures and information.
Abimelec Design transformed a Ford Mustang Foxbody into a Ferrari F40 knockoff of sorts, but it wasn’t easy. The designer had to first lower the Ford’s roofline and then add flared fenders to give it the wide stance of its Italian counterpart. Out back, they equipped it with an F40-inspired rear wing before adding a Lexan panel over the engine bay. Read more for additional pictures and information.
Ever wonder what a flying car inspired by classic F1 cars would look like? If so, Lazzarini Design Studio has just the vehicle for you. Called the FD 0ne, this tri-copter of sorts combines modern drone technology with the classic lines of a Ferrari Formula One car from the 1950s. It’s powered by six electric engines – four up front and two in the rear – connected by a belt system to a V12 petrol engine. Read more for a video and additional information.

Before the Nissan 350Z, there was the 300ZX, most notably the second-generation “Z32” model, which was redesigned to be faster and feature more advanced technology. One auto enthusiast from Russia decided to turn a 1991 Nissan 300ZX into a Ferrari FXX knockoff of sorts, and despite the latter being mid-engined, the resulting vehicle doesn’t look too bad.

Many already know that movies most always use replicas of rare or expensive cars, and Ford v Ferrari was no exception. The various Ford GT40 models seen in the film were actually replicas built by Superformance inspired by the same vehicle that Ken Miles drove at the 1966 24 Hours of Le Mans. The car you see above was driven by Christian Bale for close-ups during filming and is one of two replicas made for the movie. Read more for a video, additional pictures and information.

Top Gear is back at it again, and this time, they give us an up-close look at the new Ferrari Roma. They point out the similarities between the Roma’s nose, and the front of the Monza SP1 / SP2, mainly their prominent splitters.

The Ferrari Roma has been officially unveiled, and this two-seat coupe is as stylish as they come with a minimalist design that pays homage to life in the capital of Italy during the 1950s and ’60s. You could even see a few design cues snagged from the 250 GT Berlinetta Lusso and 250 GT 2+2 upon closer inspection. It’s powered by a twin-turbocharged 3.9-liter V8 that generates 612 horsepower and 561 pound-feet (760 Newton-meters) in this application, paired with an eight-speed dual-clutch gearbox.

Ferrari first introduced the 458 Spider at the 2011 Frankfurt Motor Show, and this convertible variant of the 458 Italia boasted an aluminum retractable hardtop that actually weighs 55-pounds less than a soft roof (Ferrari F430 Spider), and required just 14-seconds for operation. Despite these revisions, it kept the same 0-62 mph acceleration time as the coupé model, but has a lower top speed of 199 mph due to the added weight.
