Unreal.

400HP and 2300 lbs?!?!

Love that raw aluminum. Actually really really love it.

And that story how it's not a real Ferrari, haha.

Kind of reminds me of this build:

Yeah, that raw aluminium just screams "badass refinement" if you know what I mean. I kinda think it's better than a real Ferrari. If I owned a real one of those, I would worry about a scratch or a paint chip, the aluminum has that "character" look that is sooo cool.

The model... I don't even think I can fathom that...

Agree - like he says he drives it frequently. I would say the joke is on the Ferrari owners who can't get to enjoy their cars like him.

Would kind of ruin the look but a "Built not bought" sticker would be so cool on that car.

Sort of the same with my 110, I would love to galvanize the cappings, get rid of the little bit of rust and give it a nice re-spray... but I like being able to go out into the bush and not have to worry about the scratches and "bush pinstripes".

I think it's easier on my conscience.

Same reason I am not painting my 110. But I am galvanizing the cappings

the values of front engined v12 ferrari's has gone insane. No one drives their cars anymore.
The sound of that engine is incredible.

still want to build a galv and bare aluminum 110

First of all, I have tremendous respect for this guy. If everyone in the Ferrari club were like him, there wouldn't be any gold-chain-wearing stigma.

Second, Doug is spot on. Nobody even drives the early 250s and more. All of them.....even the steel-body ones are ridiculously expensive. A close friend of mine bought a 250SWB competitizione in 1998 for $850,000 (all the money back then), held it until last year when he was offered $12MM privately. Yep, he took that money and 1031-exchanged it for a 904, 910 and ex Duncan Dayton Brabham BT11 and still had $5MM to go racing with.
Ferraris are insane.

All the more reason why I respect this guy in the video. He is unapologetic about the car's "bitsa" origins and confidently admits he could not afford the real deal. He is not a poseur, he is a real car guy.

best line was when he said "if someone were to offer to trade me for an original one I would say no, this is the car I want."

What about a LS to NV4500 in a 90? Shorter/stiffer springs, sways, and good rubber on 18" wheels. Strip the paint off, free flow exhaust dumping out on each side by the door, then cage it and you would have the Rover version of that Ferrari!

And it's not just the aluminum that's raw, that whole car is raw! Pure awesome! Just watching him drive that thing made me tired. Love it! Power nothing, just the ponies!

I grew up in a different era, but I get it. I want to get a sow's ear 348tb and swap in some of the interior parts and dash from the 355. It was one of the last modern relatively raw drivers from Ferrari. I couldn't even keep up with a Z4, with stock power, but I wouldn't care! ;-) Of course I'd love a 288, but who am I kidding. I wouldn't drive it, and that's not right! That's why I like this guy and his "fake" (cooler than authentic) driven Ferrari!

I played that on the Kindle last night...had to get the headphones so I could blast it and not offend the Boss

Love the sound...man, if we only had smell-o-vision to go with it

Local C&C this weekend...one of the regulars has at least two versions of the 250's that he brings on occasion...indeed just too cool.

That thing is amazing... I bet these guys could build you a body if you wanted to attempt to recreate it.

Don't sell the rover, lower it and drop in a V12!
