I guess with the big budgets that movies command these days it makes sense that they don't destroy a fleet of Ferrari's a week but destroying Fiero's instead? Arrrrrrrrggggh. I can only hope that he's using junk yard stock.

Time to get Ferrari involved. They HATE people who make Ferrari replicas from a Fiero...

I would gladly trade them my Fiero for a Ferrari. They can do what ever they want with it once it's in their hands.

Sorry guys

From just that front shot, if that is indeed a Testarossa replica, it looks to be a well put together one.

The movie "The Rock".... the destroyed 355 was a Fiero and this is the kit that started the craze for 355s.

In The Glass House, the Ferrari that gets destroyed on a California mountain road is a Fiero, as the cop car goes by you can see the AC accumulator under the torn off hood and the Fiero dash clearly.

Oh yeah, watch the end where the kit comes apart when the trolley smashes it.

Hollywood has long had a big appetite for destroying cars.
The Dukes of Hazzard TV show destroyed over 300 '68-'69 Dodge Chargers during the show's run. (typicaly 1 or 2 were destroyed for each episode) By the end of the show's run, Chargers were getting so hard to find, they started using 1/8th scale miniatures for the jumps instead.

I don't know if I would trade my fiero for a ferrari...you know I probably would but then I'd sell it...I hate ferrari as a company...from suing people to doing stuff to the cars they own...to suing people for making kits ( which I can kind of understand but I think there would have been a better way to handle that such as making sure there were differences minute but still differences and or at least not being badged as a proper ferrari ) to not letting you keep the cars you buy...literally you buy a car from them and you keep it. Now I'd sell my family for the new lambo...all carbon fiber.

Hollywood is just trying to increase the value of you cars. 40 down and 40,000 more till they make a dent.

There is no comparison for a Fiero to a 458. In fact few cars can compare to the 458. The only fail on this car is the turn signals on the wheel. Ferrari got this one right. It is the best looking Ferarri since the 308 or 288.

In a world of rip offs I can not blaime them for protecting their designs. Heck Harley even tried to secure the full rights to the sound of their V twin that others are using and trying to pass off as a Harley look alike.

The number of Fieros destroyed by Hollywood probably doesn't even compare to the number destroyed by everyday Fiero owners. The term "drop in a bucket" comes to mind.
