  • Dreamers corner, consumer opinions on kit concepts.

    Hello, I think this thread will be a nice place to post concepts for all kinds of kits and maybe one member might pickup on these ideas and start building kits for it.



    After fitting a Saleen on a Chrysler recently, today I though a Ferrari Italia should also fit a high powered car like the Camaro.
    Be it much larger then the actual Ferrari, and also needing a donor stretch and panels cut off, I think the results are fantastic!

    The process

    The result

    The only quick modifications I did on the Italia is increase the height dimensions a bit and remove the windshield... it uses the Camaro one in the last set of pictures.

    Lastly the yellow concept is also another Camaro concept I did from before... and for the purist, these stretched Camado could possibly have the engine relocated to the rear when one has the money for it.

        Today I came up with new concept for the Chrysler platform again and also applied it to the NSX which can be seen half way through the video.

          Now it's a fact. I fell in love!

          Who designed this model? What is the name of this concept?
          I have never ever seen something with more curves than this, it reminds me of the Huayra!

                LOL. That looks ALLOT like the Attrazione from Saint's Row 2, save for the tail lights.

                  I looked it up and does look similar, I read it was based on the Lamborghini Cala concept... then I found this updated Cala concept

                    The Attrazione is visual a cross between the Lamborghini Murcielago and a Jaguar XJ-220.

                    I have Saints Row 2 on the Playstation 3. One of my favorite things about the game is it allows you access to a wide variety of fictitious but convincing cars and a good variety of realistic modifications you can make to them. Sort of a form of creativity training. In fact, I actually used it to experiment with paint jobs in getting a sense of what is most appealing in every day use on different body patterns.

                      There are some nice designs in these custom supercar games, Ridge Racer has some good ones but unfortunately its not possible to rip the models out.




                      I made a 3D overlay of the Italia on the newer MR2 in this video.

                        The possibilities are endless for kits and replicas when you chop the top off and replace with custom framing.....
                        Bart's Gallardo is a perfect replica...because of not needing to change the car to fit the imperfect roof line, windscreen angle, etc.



                        Note: I understand that in some European countries the above method makes it harder if not impossible to get registration for road use, which is why it is not more popular, I assume.

                          Thanks for posting this, I agree the most important part is the a-pillar and roof line where even a clunker like a Cavalier can be transformed to look amazing... this is a chop I did by a members idea in the old 458 donor thread



                          If I had the resources I would make a replica like this on POS donor



                          On another note here is a new Sunfire mod made in Quebec Canada I believe. Nice front but not so much the rest.
