Every year brands like Ferrari and Lamborghini are confronted with attempts at replication and counterfeiting that see the most disparate cars disguised to try to resemble the original supercars. This time it is the Maranello car manufacturer’s turn with one Chevrolet Camaro which has been modified to resemble a model of the Prancing Horse. To which? In reality, no one in particular, with the bodykit applied to the American sports car which only gave it some distinctive characteristics taken here and there by several examples of Maranello. This example of “Ferrari wanna be” it was recently put up for sale on eBay, with the selling price reaching $ 10,000.
At the front are distinctive headlights, a unique bumper and a large grille with a small Prancing Horse emblem. There is also a Ferrari emblem on the hood. This Camaro-based replica attempt has been equipped with new door skins, which appear to be inspired by the iconic Testarossa, although the characteristic strakes are absent altogether. The Cavallino coat of arms returns once again also in the vicinity of the front wheel arch, with five-spoke wheels that instead seem to recall those who equipped the F40. The rear of the car sports a distinctive bumper and circular light clusters, as well as a twin tailpipe exhaust system.
There are also several changes that have been carried out inside the passenger compartment, starting for example with the redesigned dashboard and the new door panels. The car’s interior has been modified to be more driver-oriented, complete with a new two-spoke steering wheel. Ferrari badges are featured here and on the door panels. Under the hood no engines produced in Maranello but a 5.7-liter V8 mated to a 700R4 automatic transmission with a hydraulic torque converter. The odometer reads only 14,000km but the owner said this Ferrari replica has covered 160,000km.
