Last Call- Claim Your Ferrari Edition

Insert Obligatory "That'll Buff Out" comment here.

See that 2005 612 Scaglietti up there? No, that’s not Roger Ebert’s new car (oh, I’m going to burn in hell for that one), it’s a Ferrari that had an unfortunate run in with some Brazilian hardwood. Now, the driver was rescued from the damaged car and was taken to the hospital. He, however, was not the registered owner of the car. That turned out to be an unidentified corporation, which, when contacted, denied any record of ever owning it. So, if you want a slightly bent V12 GT, you might want to jump on a plane to Brazil and claim this one for yourself. Check out the news article (in Portuguese) here.

    The 612 is a front mid-engined car, but judging by the other picture from that article the radiator support and bumper structure have been pushed almost all the way to the engine.

    Wonder if the engine can be salvaged? I know the perfect place to put it…

      An ElCamino, right? The perfect place is an ElCamino. Preferably one from the 70s.

        The words "perfect place" are actually a link to that $600 Fiat that was on the 'verse yesterday, but an El Camino works too. Call it La Strada.

          Heh. Yeah, but I conveniently ignored that to make the ElCo plea.

        I'd put it in a T-bucket.

          A Model T is good, but a little obvious. I like the idea of a stealth Ferrari swap.

        How about that Type 2 in the background? That'd be about as expected as a Spanish Inquisition.

          Well, not that much. They are still made here, they're everywhere.

            Porsche engines are actually flat, but not boxers. Subaru engines, on the other hand, are boxers. I was researching this very subject yesterday and I wrote a little piece on it.

            Thanks, I stand corrected.

    Unfortunately, knowing my country and its people, for the guy to run away like that and the corporation deny ownership of the vehicle is a clear sign that this Ferrari wasn't acquired by traditional means.

      Oh noos that only happens in France

    The crash damage almost improves the 612 Spaghetti's looks. I'll pass, thanks…

    Hmmm, that will not buff right out. Also, I would totally salvage the headlights and make some awesome lamps for my garage.

    I still say a Cobra or Daytona Coupe from FFR or Kirkham would be a fab app for a Ferrari or Maserati drivetrain, plus it would make the Ferraristi squirm. I know of at least one Ferrari salesman who would agree about the first point.

    Lose the hood. Lose the Bumper. New radiator. You're good to go.
