No idea, but I think it might be some DIY work. Looks like a Testarossa engine installed, which I assume is not the most perfect engine for serious sportscar racing.

Six???? Wow, they are well hidden then! I never saw one before and am puzzled by it. I know that some Sportcars used Ferrari engines like Kuzma and Lancia in the eighties and I believe also Riley & Scott and some others more recently, but they do not look like this. I don't think they would even have a Ferrari badge on the nose like these cars!

Who knows what this might be or where it is used for?

Help me out here, guys. How do I view the pics of these cars? The only link I see is to DJ's FerrariPhoto.net, but not to any specific photos. What am I doing wrong? :question:

BTW, I did eventually see what you were talking about when someone posted it with another Ferrari message group and asked what it was but that was only one photo. Where can I see the other photos? You have to understand, I'm still a little green. :green:

So your on Telaio as well! I sent it out to find out more and the replies range from Renault Spider based to totally replica. I find the engine weird for a Ferrari since quattrovalvole is named something like cinquevalvole!

Niels, yes I am also on Telaio. I didn't see any of the responses except for, I think it was Marcel, who just blew it off. They might have responded directly to you or it might be because I have recently switched to the new "Geezer" list with the modern list only coming as a digest once a day.

Anyway, the engine is definitely that of the 355, hence the 5-valve stamping. Here is a picture of a 355 engine. No doubt, they are the same. The car does look like the Renault Spider, but I can find no reference to any mating of Renault Spiders and 355 motori. Very interesting.
