Is This Custom Pontiac Enzo The Next Best Thing To Owning A Ferrari?

Everyone knows all Ferraris start life as Fieros.

Ah, the Pontiac Fiero. The mid-engined icon from the 1980s is the go-to car for guys who love Ferraris but can't afford them. Now turning a Pontiac into a Ferrari sounds like a dumb idea and an arduous task. However, it's not the hardest thing in the world. Some even end up looking good! This F355 isn't too shabby at all. Nor is this Testarossa. But this Fiero-Enzo isn't one of the success stories. No, not by a long shot. For starters the Fiero was built in the 80s and the Enzo was born in the early 2000s.

That right there tells you that turning the former into the latter would be tough. Oh, and there's the whole fact that the Enzo is a V12 supercar and the Fiero isn't. This custom job looks more than a bit squished and would perhaps make a better Enzo clown car than anything else. That being said you have to admire the builder's spirit to stay with the project, and to put "V12" on it. Like all good things in life the Fiero-Enzo is for sale. If you live in the San Francisco Bay Area you'll find it on Craigslist for a cool $5,500. The seller says it drives but needs a bit of work, which is to be expected when you buy a replica supercar from the early 2000s.
