A body kit based on the Ferrari Sergio...this body is just begging to be mounted on an 88 GT with T-Tops!




Rob Amida's G1 would look very nice for a replacement interior (ebony with red stitching).

Put the fuell filler on the driver's side, and the exterior would be great! A few color changes, though. Interior, not so much.

There was someone who cut their Fiero up to do something like this. They had a rear Firebird window as the windshield, and I think it was a roadster or convertible, but was along these lines. I don't think the project was completed, though.

That would look nice in between my Meras and is slightly more modern.

Looks like it would be doable...or real close:
This images is larger than 153600 bytes. Click to view.

Even though it would be better to start with a nochie IMO.

Or a Lotus or Alfa 4C, which have body lines that already match the design of this Ferrari quite closely, and which already have targa tops.

It looks pretty reminiscent of some of the race cars of the 1960s. My dad had a slop car that looked similar.
Don't think I'd like say I drove an Italian man's name around.

Q: What are you driving there?
A: Sergio.

It does look doable, but also very complicated and thus would be a costly undertaking in market that seems to be dwindling. Bummer...........

I'm not too fond of the name, but I'm curious if an Enzo or Dino would be an issue?

Somewhat reminds of the car PFF'er CMacD was designing in this thread: http://www.fiero.nl/forum/Forum2/HTML/131239.html I wonder what ever happened to him...

To me Dino is a dinosaur or a Ferrari. It sounds like a nickname at best. Enzo already has last name on every Ferrari. Sergio sounds like a stereotype. Gives me a mental image of a sunglass wearing, gold necklace smothered in chest hair sporting, pointy shiny shoe rocking, slicked back hair disco-rat with a toothpick hanging out of his mouth.

I'm pretty sure the Fonz didn't drive a Ferrari.

Yeah, he's a motorcycle guy.

Doesn't the car look like it's a closer fit for an MR2 for a kit? ETA: Wow, look at the distance from the door to the front tire.

maybe i shouldn't show you guys this, but here's the rear half of your kit for a pretty reasonable $1800 asking price

Bloozberry, I can't find on the Internet a picture of a real car that corresponds reasonably well with the picture you've posted above at the lower left. However, the other three pictures of the four you've posted remind me more of the 2014-only, 950 HP, $1,700,000, curiously-named, Ferrari LaFerrari hybrid --- with its much more distinctive, deeply recessed side panels --- rather than those of the longer-running, comparatively "cheapo" Ferrari 458 Italia, which CMacD claimed to be fond of.

I don't understand these apparent inconsistencies, and maybe one is better served by not knowing what, if anything, is behind them.


As for CMacD himself, I don't know what happened to him, but his previous post on PFF was very nearly 7 months ago, back on 06-09-2014.
