    I also found this. It looks like the same kit.

    It's not 100% accurate, but you can't get a F40 body kit for the Fiero chassis anymore so I give it a thumbs up for effort! I hope they will tweak their molds and it will evolve in the future.

    If you ask me it looks better than those fiero kits. Slight reshape for the door, enlargement of rear vent, and extension of lower bumper.
    imagine how much weight you save after taking off the original panels.

    I had checked the MR2 and F40 the other day.
    This is what I found:

    MR2 - W 1700mm, L - 4170 mm, H - 1240mm, wheelbase - 2400mm

    F40 - W 1970mm, L - 4358 mm, H - 1124mm, wheelbase - 2450mm

    The MR2 wheel base is only 2inches (50mm) shorter. Not bad.

    The Fiero - W (69in) 1752.6mm, L - (165.1in) 4193.54 mm, H - (46.9in) 1191.26mm, wheelbase - (93.4in) 2372.36mm

    The Fiero wheel base is approx 3inches (77.64mm) shorter.

    The Fiero seems closer in most dimensions except the wheelbase where the MR2 is closer.

    Cant see the youtube clips (at work), but the link is to an old Fiero factory (UK) MR40 kit. They used to have the F40 kit for the Fiero, which was a US kit splashed & they used this to make the MR40.

    It looks kind of in proportion, but there are still many places it could be better.

    The MR2 with an engine move to increase the wheelbase would give the perfect donor for a new F40 project, but it also needs radically lowering and new moulds from geuine panels rather than modding the old fiero ones.

    The F40, like the Testerrosa kits based on the Fiero, must have the Fiero stretched. They look stubby otherwise. How easy is it to stretch the MR2? How off is the Boxster?
