Default One-off Ferrari F-340 Competizione by Gullwing America

Quote:
Coach-builder recreates classic 1952 Ferrari 340 Mexico Berlineta - only 3 of which we ever made

Coach-builder Gullwing America has announced its new project, this one-off Ferrari F-340 Competizione, based on the 1952 Ferrari 340 Mexico Berlineta.

That 1952 model was built for competition in the Carrera Panamericana race in Mexico. Only 3 exemplars of the car were ever made.

Proprietor, Arturo Alonso, from the San Antonio, Texas-based Gullwing America, will be re-inventing the model using modern technology. The car will be based on a 456 Ferrari platform that will be re-bodied in aluminum and hand-made by Australian Mark Nungent. New additions will include a diffuser, rear spoiler, side vents and front splitters.

Power will come from a 5.4 liter V12 producing 476 PS (350 kW / 470 hp) coupled to an original 6-speed manual transmission. Modern tech on the car will include the brakes and taught suspension.
On the inside, the look will remain close to the original car but will feature modern touches such as the carbon fiber seats, a roll bar, a special luggage set and chronometers.

I really do think it was meant to be a Batmobile. Even those headlights look like assault weapons.

Regardless, that is one very, very, VERY beautiful car. Ridiculously so.

Gorgeous!! The only thing I would change is the headlights as they command too much attention. We need more foreign hot-rodding like this.

Very few cars do I say "whoa" out loud at just a picture of them. This is definitely Keanu approved.

No mention of how many they will make. The title says one off, but didn't quite get that sense from the article. So, I'm guessing that they will sell as many as they can make. Well, until Ferrari catches on and stop selling they 456 chassis.

What happened to the 300SL Gullwing recreation? I love the designs, hoping for some follow-through.
