Sometimes, people just become too creative for their own good. While we applaud those who exercise their creative freedom – especially in tuning concept cars – we believe that it’s always a good idea to not go overboard.

World, meet the Ferrari-Citroen hybrid
- image 316637

In the case of this car – do we even call it one? – maybe it would have been best to err on the side of on conservativeness. But the folks over at NImik definitely had other plans. They created this: the ‘2CV Nimik’. The name, by itself, is reason enough for us to question the sanity of these guys but they sure did themselves one better. The Italian firm built this ‘vehicle’ by placing the casings of a Citroen 2CV on top of – get ready for this – a Ferrari F355.

Wrecking a perfectly good Ferrari just so you can put a Citroen on top of it to make a vehicle that’s too confusing to describe definitely puts the ‘2CV Nimik’ on top of the list of worst customizations in the history of the world.
To be fair, the ‘vehicle’ does come with a Ferrari-powered V8 engine and it is unique for aesthetic reasons. But we just can’t get over the fact that sitting under that Citroen was once a Ferrari F355.

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

This is the first Ferrari car that doesn’t look like a sport’s car. Well no doubt they are known to be manufacturing supercars. But this car have a good V8 engine.

A really great combination indeed but the fact that this is a hybrid version I would not still be impressed on this one, I just find it very unreliable on the road trips, though I noticed that it had an impressive appearance.

This is unique and a good combination of the Ferrari and Citroen specs. It is a totally amazing hybrid car. Even if it is Ferrari, it still has Citroen, so I wonder about its power performance.

Cool Ferrari! I’ve been starting to realized that there are possibilities that all hybrid will become like this. Isn’t this perfect? But they said this one is the worst custom made, Again, we have different opinions to take.

A lot of it is about how and where you drive; some people get over EPA, some get lower.. But someone who gets over EPA in his hybrid probably will get over EPA in his gasoline powered car too.

Ferrari shouldn’t be forward thinking or investigate alternative fuels, but the demand for Ferrari is much less sensitive to fuel prices and the people who buy them could probably afford the gas no matter what the cost.

I guess that they just have too much cars in their garage that they don’t know what to do with them no more that they just end up on a day saying “hey man, want something fun to do today? Lets mess up a good F355 and play with it”.
