Fool people into thinking you own one of the most iconic supercars ever made.
Launched in 1987, the Ferrari F40 is one of the most famous supercars ever made, built to celebrate the company's 40th anniversary. It was also the last-ever supercar to officially get Enzo Ferrari's stamp of approval. But tracking down an authentic F40 isn't easy or cheap since Ferrari only built 1,315 examples between 1987 and 1992.
A used example will set you back seven figures, but there are alternative options. If you want to fool people into thinking you've won the lottery and bought an F40, aftermarket companies can build you a replica such as this example listed for sale by Worldwide Vintage Autos.
Details are scarce, but it appears to be based on a Pontiac Fierro like many other Ferrari F40 replicas. To the untrained eye, this replica could look like an authentic F40. Step inside, however, and the builder has done little to disguise the car's Pontiac Fierro origins. A fake Ferrari logo adorns the steering wheel but the cabin still retains the original car's cream leather seats, brown center console, and angular dashboard.
According to the listing, this fake Ferrari F40 retains the original car's 383ci General Motors V8 engine, which is paired with a five-speed transmission. It's also fitted with four-wheel disc brakes and new performance tires.
Inside, there's a custom stereo installed with Bluetooth. Like the original F40, there aren't many interior luxuries as the air conditioning apparently doesn't work, so at least this aspect is accurate. With only 564 miles on the clock, this fake Ferrari F40 has a price tag of $24,900, which seems reasonable considering the amount of work that must have gone into transforming the Fierro into an F40 lookalike - that's about the same price as a new Nissan Altima sedan.
It may not be the real deal and the proportions clearly don't match the F40. But as supercar replicas go, we've seen far, far worse jobs than this.
