This Replica Ferrari F40 Makes Us Sad, So Very Sad

The idea of owning a supercar is merely a dream for the average motorist.

However, there is a solution to this problem – but unfortunately it’s all kinds of horrendous.

And by horrendous we mean this: A replica.

This Toyota MR2-cum-Ferrari F40, is up for sale, and we are tempted to buy it purely to drive it into the English Channel and do the rest of the country a massive favour in the process.

With the ridiculous price tag of £11,000, the owner’s Autotrader advert boasts that the kit was ‘professionally installed and looks stunning’.

We’d argue the screws around the headlight fittings suggest otherwise.

Looking through the images accompanying the ad, it seems the most convincing features to replicate the original model are the red paint and the stuck-on Ferrari badges.

As the old saying goes: you get what you pay for.

In this case that means a Toyota MR2 with too much garnish. And we hate garnish.

You can get your hands on an MR2 of the same age for around the £1,000 mark, and we’d suggest you buy that instead. Or maybe 11 of them.
