Ferrari Scuderia Replica — Some Assembly Required

When will people learn? Changing the dimensions of a piece of art takes it from beauty to beast!

Perhaps “replica” is a bit of a strong word. Imitation? That’s even a bit generous.
Always wanted a Ferrari, but don’t have the dozens upon dozens of dollars it would require to purchase one? Well, you’re in luck! For only $2000, you can buy a Toyota MR2!
Yes, you’re right; a Toyota MR2 is absolutely nothing like a Ferrari F430 Scuderia. But this seller has managed to make it look a little bit kind of something nearly almost a bit like a Ferr– okay, let’s be honest, it doesn’t look that much like a Ferrari either. The dimensions are all wrong, and it’s about as accurate as if they’d tacked it on to a Smart ForTwo. But it is a touch cheaper.
Okay, so it’s unlikely you’re going to get any of the same amount of attention as you would with a real Ferrari; even at a casual glance, it still doesn’t look much like a real one. Nor will you get the respect, admiration, or ladies. But you can always pretend. Perhaps by making engine noises with your mouth. Brrrrrrmmmmmm!

  1. I thought exactly the same thing. "Well… it might help. At least it would be a bit funnier…"

  2. I think he might be going for a propane conversion too. I see THREE 20lb. tanks in the pictures. Since it appears he bondo-ed up the fuel filler door it might be a good idea.

  3. Why does God let bad things happen to good cars? I like MR2s. I also like Ferraris. However, except in the world of Top Gear, the two should never be mixed. This guy has invested a lot of time and money, and is asking the buyer to invest even more time and money, into making what, at best, could be a barely passable imitation. You'd be better off buying a Fiero and one of the dozens hundreds of body kits available for it.
    It's crap like this that makes me want to give up on humanity and push the little red button.

  4. This pogue assumes that someone is going to be interested in finishing this abortion, building a mold from what we're revolted by here. It's just a "plug," sez he. You need to know fiberglass, and how to lift a mold, he informs us. He'll even help. Then, I assume, you rip the foam and bondo off of the poor little MR2 and put the finished product onto it, thereby creating something truly godawful. This isn't crack pipe or not, it's PCH.
    I'll bet you a six pack of PBR that some dick actually buys this. I just know it's gonna sell.

  5. wow, you would waste all that time and effort making a cheap-ass fake ferrari instead of working hard and buying a real one. You've dropped out of high school, you've failed at life, now you are trying to compensate by ruining a good toyota mr2.
    Looks like someone has a small penis…..

  6. Hey – nice website, just searching around some blogs, looks a quite nice platform you happen to be using. I’m at this time using WordPress for several of my internet sites but looking to alter one of them more than to a platform just like yours like a trial run. Anything in specific you’d probably propose about it?
