    drove 15 miles up the road and found a Ferrari F40! REAL!

    I have never seen one in person!!!! When I was at this mercedez benz restoration shop my friend has a supra motor sitting at he said oh yeah he has a F40. And low and behold under this blue car cover was a long and wide car sitting underneath! I asked if I could see it and I snapped a few pics of it! They are so amazing, I was in awe! Why arent these replica kits as nice as the real thing? I mean whats with these people wanting to put that body on a non stretched feiro is beyond me! Why doesnt anyone make a space frame! My god I loved that car, I will post pics tomorrow as soon as i upload them.

    The owner wasnt at the shop, but hes a big wig at Meguiars and my friend says hes on SPEED VISION sometimes with it, the AWESOME thing is this car is driven, he drives it once a week flying fast up our small mountains in Upstate SC/NC line below Hendersonville.

    Man oh man ferrari's are awesome!

    In one word: TTM


    It takes TALENT + TIME + MONEY to take something so gorgeous in real life and build soemthing else to resemble something close to it....Plus lawsuits from Ferrari Spa doesn't make things any easier.. :

    Very few people have ALL of the above to accomplish a true replica and make it affordable enough for people to buy...Most well made 360/F40 kits are expensive and beyond the building expertise of most folks.

    And you're right....the F40 is a piece of automotive ART....a true classic!

    yeah that is 1uz powered, its a work of art too, I saw it over a year ago online. and the vids of it is amazing.

    also, that car i saw today, it was scratched dinged and dirty, I loved every scratch or crack in the carbon, it means its driven! he drives it around all the time so I am told.

    I'll post pics tomorrow, only a few that I got, but i got a video too, i'll show it.

    Give me a break I wont be in work for a few more hours LOL. I will then upload them, I left my camera dock at work! My pics arent all that though so the video will be uploaded as well, as the guy wouldnt take the cover off the entire car.

    Maybe cause he does not want everyone to have the same thing.....


    Some people like to have something no one else does...... So I understand the Kiwi!

    It makes his kit car worth a LOT more money in the end as well I will be doing the same with my murci, once I get it from extreme I will finish it and not have anyone reproduce it because for the ammount I spend its worth every penny from Extreme.
