    It has been a while since the last reply on this post but rather than starting a new thread, I exersized the search function ;D

    This is one of the closer looking replicas I have seen in a while. It still looks a bit short in wheelbase and quarter window section but good enough for me to want it for that price.

    I like the detail such as the cable door pulls just like the real F40.

    the only real defect i see on the car is that the engine cover is warped/melted? it leans to the left.

    i think the car looks great. goes to show that you dont need something 95%+ accurate to have a great looking car, and at 25k you cant compain as long as it runs good and the panels arent falling off.

    Re: F40 rep on ebay & its cheap

    I am seriously debating about looking into this car. AutoMX, you are right about the accuracy of the car. I have over $25k invested in the rolling chassis of my 355. I often wonder if I should build this replica for about $55k or just buy a used 355 for about the same such as this one.... :-\

    well if you could replace the drivetrain, and sell the original one, it could be a winning combination. if it breaks down, you could end up forking over $5k on a small electrical problem like my friend did on his 308... and considering that he has built race cars, over 20 kit cars, and worked on a bunch of other cars, it's not like he didnt try to fix it himself.. :

    who was the manufacture of that F-40 kit with the round front ,it is by far the Nice's one i have seen if it was 3 1/2" longer in the quarters it would be real nice , all the other kits have a 3 angle square front did anyone here get it
    In the USA if you pay a company / person to start a plug, then it,s your plug and work ,it is not theirs to sell or trade !!

    I have noticed that too. The quarter window could have been a little longer as well as the space between the door and rear wheel, but it is by far the best f40 replica I have seen. They told me it was made by a German engineer that hand made only three of these f-40's. I think it was very convincing, even down to the cable door pull just like the real thing. I would just add an extended windshield to it to make it look even better.

    You couldn't build that car for $18,000 with all those performance parts that were on it. Somebody got a good buy.
