Inexpensive Pontiac Fiero made a dubious replica of the Ferrari Enzo supercar

The Italian model is one-of-a-kind and very expensive, but Cars & Bids sells a Ferrari Enzo replica. So you don’t have to be a multimillionaire to get a Ferrari.

They decided to disguise the 1986 Pontiac Fiero as a Ferrari Enzo supercar. This project was created several years ago. The result is a rather quirky car that, for obvious reasons, was inferior to the original supercar. Some automotive media even dubbed the copy as the worst replica on the Ferrari Enzo. So why did the tuned “state employee” displease the journalists? The car is driven by a 140-horsepower 2.8-liter V6 Fiero engine. The current owner has been using the car since 2015. Mileage reaches 1.6 thousand kilometers. In this case, the car has been in accidents.

The troubles of the replica, nicknamed “Fierri”, did not end there. Not too long ago, a car failed an emission test in California due to high NOx levels. Now California roads are closed to her. Other disadvantages: inoperative turn signals, lack of high beam, opening trunk, scratches on the body and much more. And the rear lights here cannot work simultaneously with the front ones.

In recent years, they tried to repair the car. So, gaskets, oil and air filters, etc. were replaced.

However, the scope of work is still very large. The new owner of the Pontiac Fiero, converted into an iconic supercar, will have to invest heavily in the car to bring it to mind. For the car they are going to help out $ 4,500.

The car looks unusual, but a closer inspection reveals a poor-quality joining of panels

An interesting detail from the past of the replica: at the parody exhibition Concours d’Lemons, he taught a very unflattering title for himself

In the meantime, Ferrari may abandon the production of one of its models. This is GTC4Lusso, which at one time was intended to open a new chapter for the Italian supercar manufacturer. However, the demand for it was small, and now the car is leaving the conveyor.
