That showed up in MyMonte a few weeks ago. I'll say what I said there: As stupid anidea that was, you gotta admit that's some crazy talent with the styrofoam. Stil :roll: l, all that time and expense and you end up with a 270 hp F50.

Well, I do like Ferarris, and that car did look nice, but call me crazy, I liked the styling of the NSX much better than the finished Ferrari, ya, it did take skill, but I think he would turn more heads with the NSX all decked out.

I'd say slim to none! There is a guy about 30 mins from where I live that does Ferrari kit cars, and his look and sound real, but that's it. That guy (NSX dude) probably lacks the handling, the speed, and you can probably tell from the sound that it's not a real ferarri. The guy around here, without popping the hood, or lookin at the VINS, he's been told by some pro that there is no other way to tell them apart.

... i HIGHLY doubt he did it to think it's a Ferrari... it's an amazing example of what u can do with ideas, ingenuity, time, and patience.. that's it.....


not everything is built to perform, although it probably will still perform pretty well, cause, well, the NSX is pretty good

i was going to say poor mans f50 but i then asked myself "how in the hell much did those guys pay"? and then i realized if was more of a waste of time and money because a REAL f50 could have probably been bought.

other than that i must give props... it looks alright, other than the back end it doesnt look too good. but anyway its better than i will ever remotly be able to do so props to them.

Dude it's still an NSX... You can't call an NSX a ricer. :\ And if I had an NSX... Why the... I mean... *boggle* You do stuff like that to /escorts/ and CHEAP cars that you can get more of easily! Not NSX's! :? It looks neat but... It wasn't good enough the way it was? Why's it even /need/ to look like something else? I know they're maybe not the fastest cars around but damn I love those. It's lots different from a Civic with BMW vents because it's what, a 30-40,000 dollar car (used?) that's definitely what /I'd/ call high performance to start out with.

How about those with a Corvette that put a gigantic wing on it and a cheesie body kit? That is rice also. I see no difference between the Corvette, NSX, or a Civic.

A body kit is nice if it accents the car. A different hood, or front bumber with a little larger air intake is nice. Those big gigantic body kits some Civic drivers have are just plain ugly.

I never thought of that!
But Corvettes are OK. C4s are a little lame as Corvettes go, but the later 300hp C4s are acceptable, besides, I drive a chevy now. How much worse could it be.

The NSX was trashed with that horrible wing and badly done front vent before he started.. so I'm not bothered by it. It's actually much less riced now.

I'm sure it took him nowhere near as much cash to build that as it would have to pay Ferrari for one of theirs... besides, he doesn't have to fool any car guys.. just superficial chicks with low waist lines, tall thongs, and no hang-ups.

I don't see how he's supposed to open the front door. The hinge is still deep inside the bodywork (unless I missed a few pics), so opening the door will cause a bunch of fiberglass to attempt to occupy the same space.

That cattle-catcher front brace is rediculous. Nothing like a bunch of steel bars hanging out 2 feet over the front wheels. :D
