• Toyota MR2 turned Ferrari F430 Spider goes side by side with the real deal

You know when people say that imitation is the sincerest form of flattery?
Well this dude took it to a whole new level. See, he has a Toyota MR2, a nice sports car that has no chance when parked beside, say, a Ferrari F430 Spider.

Apparently, our MR2 owner found a way to make his MR2 a little more presentable: he dressed up his Toyota sports car to look like a Ferrari F430 Spider. We say “look like” because no matter how hard he tried, you still wouldn’t mistake one for the other.

The story becomes more ridiculous when the owner of the Fauxrarri decided to participate in a sports car meet somewhere in the Netherlands with his dressed up MR2. Upon arriving at the location of the meet, the owner parked his sports car in one spot, oblivious to the fact that another sports car, albeit a lot more powerful, was parked very close by.

Care to venture a guess at which sports car that was?

Yep. It was a Ferrari F430 Spider, and a real one at that.

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 full bio

haha! They really want to create a different aspect of the car by using those high end cars. This attempt seems really ridiculous.

Nice try though. Poor fellow he really looks like a ardent fan of Ferrari and may be trying to match it with his own look alike. But any guesses how the real Ferrari owner should have reacted by seeing this.

Hahaha! That one’s definitely funny, a lot like some of those comedy scenes in the movies. I wonder how the owner of the F430 reacted to this one.
