Thread: Ferrari 355 Challenge

    Ferrari 355 Challenge

    Here's a question (and I hope I don't come off dumb for asking it):

    What exactly is a Ferrari 355 Challenge? Does it have something to do with the black grill around the tail lights of some 355's? ???

    Also, how would one go about making a kit car look like a Challenge instead of a regular 355?

    Off the topic: Anyone know the perks of being a member of Ferrari owners' car club? (But it's not like any of us will be allowed admission anyway)
    Perhaps we should start our own car club? with membership cards...the whole nine yards. ;D

    Instead of using mesh this guy used black paint.

    I was invited by invitation by a local Ferrari dealership to bring my Ferrari to Ferrari Days at the Road RaceTrack. lol

    If you want a mesh grill... there's a guy about 15 minutes from here that has one for sale. I'm even thinking about it! Looks pretty cool!!!

    DKOV,

    is it the real mesh grill the guy is selling or a replica? does the real one fit onto kit cars, what would have to be removed (if anything)?

    It is a real, authentic 355 Challenge grill. It will fit on a Mirage kit... I measured for it. I can't say if it will fit a stretch kit as the rear end is about 2 inches narrower than Mirage kit. I assume it will be close and with some manipulation it should fit any kit.

    Of course... the BIG question is the cost... Just over $1000 Bucks!!! Any takers?

    I gave him a call to see and as nuts as I am for buying some of the things I did for my kit... $1000 for a Steering wheel, sure. $1000 for EACH of the side mirrors, yep, did that too. $1000 for a rear grill? I don't know...

    I admire your dedication DKOV.

    I understand your reluctance to pay another $1000 for a grill. Perhaps we can find it cheaper on ebay?

    Re: Ferrari 355 Challenge

    Hey, Thanks for posting a shot of my Mirage kit with the black grill on it. (note MAPICS license plate). Yep, you are correct about the black paint. I have since then put on a different rear clip with a Challenge Grill, Ferrari support superstructure (Metal), extended the wheel base 3 inches and acquired a full legnth deck lid and OEM rear bumper. It will look a lot different the next time I update my site. I have a used Challenge Grill available if you know anyone interested. Has a little ding on one corner (easy to fix). It is from the Tommy Hilfiger 355 Challenge Car out of Miami. I purchased two of them and only need the one I put on my car.
    If you're not confused, you're not paying attention.

    MAPICS - do you have any pictures of the metal subframe used to mount the body?
    Thanks,
