It’s understandable that, outside of Monterey Car Week, the idea of driving a $20m Ferrari around is not the best. Though I would personally disagree. So what do you do? To me kit cars aren’t a terrible idea, like a Hawk Lancia Stratos or Beck Porsche 904. I would 100% flog the hell out of either of them.
At a local Cars and Coffee in San Diego I came across this gem. It’s fairly gorgeous Ferrari P4. Only this one has a special heart… courtesy of the inevitable LS swap, and that most certainly is not a bad thing!
I did not get a chance to speak with the owner but a quick internet search revealed that a company called Race Car Replicas produce the P4 kits with prices ranging from $26,495 – $43,995. Assuming with paint, powertrain and a transaxle setup you would be into something like this for $80,000 – $100,000, that’s a fraction of the cost of an original and without all the fears of bending precious Italian metal. I love this thing, but what I’d love even more is some time behind the wheel.
