All these Ferraris are fake?

Can't believe all these are fake. They look pretty real, especially the F355. But you can spot the sloppy work here and there, like the crooked front grille lol!

Even the most realistic ones' appearance suggests that something is just wrong with these.

Incredible efforts to make these fakes... and yet no real satisfaction to drive them afterwards...

I don't know, "fake" sounds like such a strong word. I totally respect the craftsmanship and skill needed to make these kind of replicas. Many replicas are built simply because the originals are so old and unobtainable except at silly-extreme prices. Would I happily owns something like the CalSpyder from that company in Arizona? Sure would. It's a pretty and modern car you could drive every day, at a tiny fraction of the price the original is demanding (if you would even drive the original). But I wouldn't pass it off as a Ferrari: No badges, emblems, etc.

At the end of the day, satisfaction comes in many forms.

For me, I'm curious as how much it costs to make one. I'm guessing several thousand dollars at least. Wouldn't they rather save up and get the real thing?

Maybe replicas is better words. The cars in the photo gallery all have the cavalino badges and prancing horses, so they were presented to be Ferrari.
They look like that Chanel handbag that my wife bought in China a few years back. It came with the right shape packaging box and the logo printed on it, but at a small fraction of the real price... she said that it doesn't feel like carrying a Chanel handbag.

I didn't mean any offence to the maker of those replicas, I thought it was funny to spend that much efforts that would not give you the satisfaction you were looking for in the first place.

Especially the 355 are not even close to the real thing. The F40, the 360 - I can see they are replica even from a plane.

But that 250 GTO looks really good.
