Ferrari F-340 Competizione

Not the prettiest.....

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.

Barry, Doug- Not sure what I think of that car, but there goes a perfectly good 456, a very attractive Ferrari, for a questionable aesthetics mongrel.

I really like the idea and I don't think the car looks "terrible". IMO it's easy to dream up something like this and make a computer image, I want to see one of these or the Gullwing the advertise in the flesh (and sheetmetal).
