This supercar was built to impress.
Everyone knows the Ferrari Enzo. This car, named after the founder of the famous Italian brand has reached cult status and is one of the most recognizable supercars around, but there is something a bit off about this particular Enzo. Cars and Bids, an online car auction website has recently gotten its hands on one, but strangely enough, have it advertised as a 1986 Pontiac Fiero. Yes, the unfortunate truth is that this red stallion is nothing more than a Fiero in disguise, and not even a good one. This unique creation has enjoyed some attention from celebrities such as Jay Leno but has not received much praise.
The Fiero has been completely re-bodied with an "ill-fitting" fiberglass body kit that resembles an Enzo. It is probably best known for winning the "Concours d'Lemons Worst in Show" award, and featuring on the CAR BROS YouTube channel. So what does this creation offer? The exterior features scissor doors ( in true McLaren 570GT fashion), 15-inch Z Racing wheels, a straight pipe exhaust, and a mock V12 engine cover. The Fiero still runs its stock 2.8-liter V6 engine, which produces 140 horsepower and 170 lb-ft of torque. That's not exactly supercar levels of power. The interior features a gauge cluster sourced from a Chevrolet Cavalier and two-tone seats, as well as an AM/FM radio.
Unfortunately, there are a bunch of faults that come with the car. According to the seller, the "Fierri" won't pass California emissions testing. The turn signals are not functioning, nor are the high beams, and the taillights don't turn on when the headlights are on. Apparently there are also "scratches throughout the body". There is a discrepancy in the actual mileage this car has done: the last logged odometer reading is 148,873 miles back in February, but the seller says that the true mileage is "anyone's guess." At least the car has seen a recent major service, but the seller recommends that "a mechanically inclined driver" buy this car. We recommend a driver with bad eyesight.
The car currently has a winning bid of $4,000, and the auction closes on September 3.
