This $35,000 Ferrari F40 Replica Doesn't Look So Bad

For Sale

Trust us, we've seen much worse.

Ferrari replicas are nothing new and they’re not going anywhere anytime soon. Sure, they’re often ridiculously easy to make fun of because some are just plain bad. Others, however, are actually halfway decent, such as this F40 replica currently up for sale on Craigslist in San Francisco. Like countless other Ferrari replicas, this one is based on a Pontiac Fiero, specifically a 1985 GT. The seller claims this Fiero GT was originally a European model and the odometer is in kilometers and not miles.

Do the conversion and there’s a total of 68,475 miles on the clock. Take notice of the attention paid to many of the smallest details. For example, there are five-point harness restraints, metal foot pedals, and no power steering or power brakes. It’s still powered by the Fiero GT’s original V6 engine as well as the original four-speed manual transmission. The seller also claims the car drives and shifts very well considering its age. Asking price? $34,888. It’s funny but the seller, Autobahn Gallery in Dublin, California, is trying to convince prospective buyers that’s a fair price because a real F40 can go for nearly $2 million. Can you even compare a replica to the original like that? Not really, but as a replica Ferrari goes, this fake F40 is pretty darn good.
