A hilarious yet sweet, FC-RX7-based, Fauxrarri F40...
For rediculously-coincidental reference, an actual Ferrari F40 booming through Shibuya one evening. Urgh.. I loved Japan. Yep, that chariot-of awesome.. that abolute 80's supercar icon.. the 80's poster-car of poster-cars..
..with LM bits..
Getting use on the streets amongst the Subaru's and Taxi's.
Excited at first thinking it was an AW11-based replica, before the confusion set in of what it actually was based on. An A70 Supra? no..
That thick B-pillar.. the large hatchback - this was an FC RX7 at heart!
Such a strange thing to do to a car. When you set out to do this to an FC RX7; do you start with an FC because you like them? happen to already own one? maybe it just seems like the closest base?
How correct would you expect the final product to be, when you plan to leave the wheel/door positions and glasshouse as-is..?
The short wheelbase and oversized front and rear detailing, makes this seem like some sort of drivable Choro-Q car.. and for that at the very least I find this a bit of fun.
Plus I can always appreciate that someone obviously likes this. Nice and clean - and this was no small job!
