Ha ha ha thats a tragedy but yet also kind of cool. I mean passing it off as a Ferrari is dumb, but other than the dashboard and seats its kind of nice. Check out the rockers. It will be interesting to see what it goes for.

Better than a Fiero-Ferrari.

I am willing to bet that the guy who built it didn't put those Ferrari logos on it.

This thing is also listed on Bring a Trailer; the comments there are pretty entertaining. See: Fauxrari Treatment: 1966 Alfa Romeo Giulia Spider Project | Bring a Trailer

One of my favorite comments on BaT is:

One of the dumbest exercises in bad taste in recent memory. If the lame attempt at creating a pretend Ferrari isn’t bad enough, the underside and trunk shots ought to be enough to scare the whiz out of anyone willing to drive this thing.

Quite appropriate actually, after all, Enzo did say Alfa Romeo was the mother of Ferrari!

I knew a Ferrari owner many decades ago and he was mad that people called his Ferrari cars Fiats.
