    Very VERY cool! - http://www.fierofactory.com/fierossa.html

    If you don't mind me asking, how much did it cost you in total to get it into the States over to your house? Just interested in what kind of fees are involved in getting a crate shipped over from Europe.

    Cost in U.S. curency is:$6,300 plus the $240 Money Gram fee.Same thing as Western Union (Money Transfer)and the duty for customs,because of it's value the crate must be inspected by a broker, this can very in price for the broker fee I paid $290.So if anyone is importing a kit in the U.S. I would get a list of brokers from customs so you can call around befor your kit arives, get this taken care of as soon as possible because, the whare house may charge a storage fee.I picked up the crate within ten days so they didn't charge a storage fee for that company.Total cost $6,830 for every thing, the body which consists of the whole rear end, trunk,door skins,and the front nose,tail lights,driveing lights,side marker lights, 2 plain Plexi Quarter windows and the right and left trunk area heat vents ,slightly diffrent than the stock ones.Misilianous small bumper grills (possibly rims for this model, Im trying to clear that up).You retain your stock hood and front fenders.This is a non strech kit,but the rims on the rear should be a little wider.The dimensions of the crate is 80"X67"X43" and will fit in a large pickup truck or can be broken down smaller and covered with a heavy tarp
