It's not everyday you see someone use a Ferrari frunk to sell produce.
For those who can't afford to splash out on a real Ferrari, there are plenty of replica options. Some are more convincing than others. This fake Ferrari is in another league, however. Vietnamese YouTube channel is famous for building low-budget replicas of exotic cars including a crude cardboard Bugatti Chiron.
Back in February, the team revealed their most ambitious replica yet: a Ferrari 488 GTB. This time, the car was built on a steel frame, fitted with fiberglass body panels. It's still not going to fool any Ferrari aficionados, but the result is still impressive considering the limitations. Amazingly, the car was built in just 60 days on a modest $1,000 budget.
Since then, the 488 GTB replica has had numerous improvements inside and out. Even the wheels now look similar to the factory car's, complete with red Brembo brake calipers. In the latest video showing it off, the fake Ferrari 488 GTB gets taken on an unusual adventure.
Two friends in the group of car enthusiasts are struggling to sell some watermelons, so they decide to convert the car into a makeshift mobile watermelon stall. The watermelons are stored inside the fake Ferrari and then sold to customers from the frunk. Same old story.
This unusual business strategy works well, attracting huge crowds of local people who were enamored by the "Ferrari." and eager to buy some fresh watermelons. It's safe to say they sold a lot of fruit that day with the help of the fake Prancing Horse.
As you can tell from the video, the car isn't powered by the original 488 GTB's sweet-sounding 3.9-liter twin-turbo V8. Instead, it has an air-cooled engine from a water pump. Whereas the real 488 GTB will top out at over 200 mph, this fake version allegedly has a top speed of 37.2 mph. You have to wonder what the team's next bizarre car project is going to be, but we're eager to find out.
