It's wonderfully terrible.
There are some cars that are so terrible they're actually kind of great. This is one of them. What was once a perfectly fine Pontiac Fiero has been turned into a Ferrari Enzo, or the "Fierri." Fake Ferraris don't get much worse than this. And, to be perfectly honest, it doesn't take a Tifosi or any other car enthusiast to recognize something isn't right about it. Fiberglass parts do their best to disguise the donor Fiero but driving around town in this thing would be kind of embarrassing. It's the exact opposite of showing off a Ferrari 812 Superfast or LaFerrari.
Enter Jay Leno. A fake Ferrari like this simply deserves more attention and now it's appearing with its owner on a new episode of Jay Leno's Garage.
That owner just so happens to be Michael Coyne from the Car Bros YouTube channel. Coyne has shown his fake Ferrari in a number of videos, the most famous being when he and his friends somehow managed to get permission to display at it at Pebble Beach, one of the world's most exclusive outdoor motor shows. Show organizers didn't pay close enough attention to Coyne's entry application. Realizing their mistake the day he pulled up in the Fierri, they wouldn't let him park it next to the real Ferraris.
Instead, they made space next to the porta potties.
The origins of the Fierri are unknown, only that it was discovered parked in a field. Whoever built it used plenty of custom fiberglass parts, including a fake engine cover. The original engine, however, remains. Leno acknowledges during a test spin the engine isn't terrible, but not good. It ain't no V12, that's for sure.
Coyne, who just so happened to sport a full denim outfit the day he met Leno, had the audacity to try selling Leno the car after commenting he actually kind of digs it. Leno's response to Coyne's pitch is spot-on.
