This is a partially completed Ferrari 365 GTB/4 Daytona Spyder Replica project (Think of the black car from the first couple of seasons of Miami Vice if you're old enough to remember!!).  The donor car is a 1981 Nissan 280zx Turbo.  As you can see, the top has been removed and the body panels have been fabricated and fitted to the car.  The original 6 cylinder turbo engine is present but it does not run and I have no idea if it is repairable (I had intended to put in a small block V8 so it was irrelevent).  I have too many projects going and need to thin down so I can focus on and finish something :-)

 

This project still needs work including a top, bumpers, headlights, tail lights, badges, wire spoke wheels, new uphosltery or recover the existing, and all dash pieces such as gauges, vents, levers, etc...  Also need to either repair existing engine or put in a new one with compatible transmission.

 

It will be an awesome car when complete.  I just am running out of time and money to do all the projects I had going.  All I want out of this is what I have in it which is the buy it now price.  Buyer is responsible for arranging shipping.  Remember, you need to tell the shipper that the car does not run.

 

I have 15-20 more pictures of the car from the beginning to where it is now, if interested in seeing them please contact me.  The last several pics above are of actual Ferrari's so you can see what it should look like when complete and to help determine what pieces need to be purchased and installed.  I can also put you in touch with the company that fabricated the body panels and installed them as they are a great resource to utilize during the remainder of the build

2015 Maserati Ghibli gets the lightest of updates [w/video]

Wed, 19 Nov 2014 15:25:00 EST

Maserati continued its centennial celebration this week with a lightly updated version of the 2015 Ghibli at the Los Angeles Auto Show.
The sedan is enhanced with navigation and Bluetooth features, which are now standard. Reinforcing that this is a light refresh, Maserati gave the brake calipers a new finish, and contrasted stitching is also added on the Ghibli and Ghibli SQ4 models.
Maserati is also throwing in a free three-month "all-access" subscription to SiriusXM satellite radio for the Ghibli, Quattroporte and GranTurismo.

Maserati orders explode, 22,500 through September

Wed, 16 Oct 2013 19:01:00 EST

Last year when Maserati revealed a plan to sell 50,000 units globally by 2015, it seemed like a pretty steep goal for an automaker that had sold just 6,300 units for the entire year. It turns out that goal may be a little on the conservative side. Through September, Automotive News Europe says the Italian automaker has already racked up 22,500 orders mainly on the backs of the redesigned Quattroporte and the all-new Ghibli, and there are still more new products in the pipeline.
Back in August, we heard that demand in China was playing a strong role in Maserati's big numbers in 2013, and this doesn't even include the upcoming Levante SUV, which Maserati CEO Harald Wester expects to add as many as 25,000 units to the mix when it goes on sale in 2015. According to the ANE report, the Quattroporte is still the most popular model with almost 10,000 orders so far this year, while the smaller and more affordable Ghibli is performing quite well with almost 8,000 orders; the aging, but soon-to-be-replaced, GranTurismo models have about 5,000 orders.

Why Italians are no longer buying supercars

Wed, 08 May 2013 10:16:00 EST

Italy is the wound that continues to drain blood from the body financial of Italian supercar and sports car makers. The wound was opened by the country's various financial police who decided to get serious about superyacht-owning and supercar-driving tax cheats a few years ago, by noting their registrations and checking their incomes. When it was found that a rather high percentage of exotic toy owners had claimed a rather low annual income - certain business owners were found to be declaring less income than their employees - the owners began dumping their cars and prospective buyers declined to buy.
Car and Driver has a piece on how the initiative is hitting the home market the hardest. Lamborghini sold 1,302 cars worldwide in 2010, 1,602 cars in 2011 and 2,083 cars in 2012 - an excellent surge in just two years. In Italy, however, it's all about the ebb: in 2010, the year that Italian police began scouring harbors, Lamborghini sold 96 cars in Italy, the next year it sold 72, last year it sold just 60. The declines for Maserati and Ferrari are even more pronounced.
Head over to CD for the full story and the numbers. What might be most incredible isn't the cause and effect, but where the blame is being placed. A year ago the chairman of Italy's Federauto accused the government of "terrorizing potential clients," this year Luca di Montezemolo says what's happening has created "a hostile environment for ­luxury goods." Life at the top, it ain't easy.
