Desperate people are capable of desperate actions, even if the results of what they do become far less appealing than if they had just left everything alone.

Take this man for example.

Clearly, this man has a unique – and maybe even obsessive – love for Ferrari. The only problem is, he doesn’t have one, or at least a real and authentic Prancing Horse. What he does have is a Chevrolet Corvette C4, which, by all accounts, is far from being a run-of-the-mill sports car. But as is the case with obsessive compulsive fixations, the owner of this monstrosity decided – how he decided on this, we’ll never know – to build a replica Ferrari F40 using the Corvette C4.

If you ask us, there are a few things current and hoping Ferrari owners should always know. If you can afford the ride, there’s no reason why you shouldn’t have one inside your garage, but if you don’t have the financial wherewithal to buy your own Ferrari, please, for all that is good and holy in this world, do not make any attempts in turning a nice car like a Corvette C4 into the motherload of all horrendously crappy vehicles.

Kirby’s first exposure into the world of automobiles happened when he caught Knight Rider on television as a five-year old boy. David Hasselhoff didn’t leave much of an impression on him (that happened later on in Baywatch), but KITT certainly did. To this day, Kirby remains convinced that he will one day own a car with the same ‘spirit’ as the original KITT (not the 2008 monstrosity). He doesn't know when that will be, but until then, he’s committed to expressing his love for KITT, and all cars for that matter, here at TopSpeed.  Read More

Do the F40s not have limited slip diffs? Was it just me or was just one wheel spinning?

The first time I ever actually heard a Ferrari engine running, I was on a bicycle sitting a red light when a 328 pulled up beside me, and the sound of that F40 ancestor was just amazing. I love the rumble of an American V-8, but the Italian engine was truly special.

Haha, he’s one creative man! Very intelligent of him to change his Corvette C4 to a Ferrari F40. He doesn’t have the means but at least he got the brains! Well nothing beats the original, a Chevy turned Ferrari will remain to be a Chevy deep inside.

I don’t know if I will laugh but I can see the passion he has that give him an idea to renovate his car into a Ferrari although we can see that it doesn’t look good.smiley
