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
This past weekend was Memorial Day weekend, folks, and you know what that means: racing. There was the Monaco Grand Prix for Formula One fans, and back Stateside there was the Indianapolis 500. You might expect to see a name like Maserati pop up at the former more than the latter, but that wasn't always the case.
These days its all about Dallara chassis powered by Chevy or Honda, but over the course of a century there have been plenty of foreign automakers that have won the Greatest Spectacle in Racing. McLaren won it twice in the 1970s, Mercedes and Peugoet won during the race's pre-WWI infancy, and in between them Boyle Racing won it two years in a row with a Maserati chassis and engine.
The car was the Maserati 8CTF "Boyle Special," and its first win came 75 years ago. So to mark the occasion (as well as Maserati's 100th anniversary), the car was brought back to the Indianapolis Motor Speedway for a revival lap. Unfortunately Wilbur Shaw, who won the Indy 500 three times (twice in the Maserati) and went on to be president of the speedway, died in a plane crash the day before his 52nd birthday in 1954. So in his place fellow three-time winner Johnny Rutherford took the wheel of the 8CTF in front of the gathered crowds.
America, meet the next sports car from Maserati. This is the Alfieri Concept, and it made the trip from Europe to make its US debut during the 2014 Monterey Car Week.
The two-door originally made its debut at the 2014 Geneva Motor Show, and has since made an ear-pleasing visit to the UK before it arrived at today's Rolex Monterey Motorsports Reunion at Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca.
For those that need a refresher, the Alfieri is a 2+2 that will, when it arrives in 2016, be available with a 410-, 450- or 520-horsepower V6, with the latter two power levels coming with an all-wheel-drive system. The Alfieri Coupe will be joined by a convertible in 2017.
Unless you've been living under a rock for the past 24 hours, you've no doubt read about all of the big future product news coming out of Fiat Chrysler Automobiles today. We had individual brand reports from Chrysler, Dodge, Jeep, Ram, Alfa Romeo, Fiat, Maserati and even Ferrari, but in the interest of simplifying and summarizing, we're going to list out the hard facts once more. Of course, with all of this still off in the future, there's still the possibility that a few changes will be made. But as of what we know right now, here's what's coming, and what's going away.
