At first it looked like it was at a Ferrari dealership, then it was brought to a body shop, I think called "Stuarts".

First one was Boardwalk, but Mike Luongo is their sister Lamborghini dealership I still believe. Stuart's is known locally for high end paint and body. Also notice the guy with a P4 by Norwoods shirt. Only local heavy hitter Ferrari guy I didn't see was James Patterson of Norwoods and he has plenty of F40 experience too.

The car was totaled, right? Glad to see them rebuild than part out. I like the guys, haven't meet the Fast and Furious guys yet.

They could have but that would have been a waste of an opportunity. With this, they will have gotten everything they've wanted: a chance to push the envelope, the attention in doing do (both the praise and the detraction), and also higher offers for their one of a kind F40. I would not do something like this to a good car but for this car, I think it's great what they did. And remember, these guys have a TV show. No one watches a TV show to see normal crap. They had to push the envelope and they really show off the caliber of their skills.
agree 100%....may not be everyones taste but if you can make some changes why not? It was a loss before they got it...

They would have 'taken care of the owner" as they have before......not THIS owner, I am speaking of other cars/owners..
That's what happens when texans get a Ferrari)))))))

I just watched the episode and I'm looking forward to the next.

It's interesting what they're doing to it and it's fun to see this happen in place I've been to and with people I've met and talked with before.

Hopefully they don't lose too much money!

I wonder how the watch party went? Does anyone know anything about what happened there?

I watch this show purely for what they do with the cars, not so much for the personalities. Aaron and Sue do some amazing work.

I'm not sure what to make of this rebuild. As with all wrecked cars, I think there is always a question of how durable and reliable the repairs are - especially if that thing is tracked again, even if just for fun. How safe is the car if it's wrecked again?

Once some cars are wrecked, they should really not be revived from the dead. I'm thinking along the lines of Stephen King's Pet Cemetery. lol

Various event photos are posted on their FB page, nothing out of the ordinary but also no photos of the F40.

I hope they do "loose their ass's" Would serve them right for butchering up a master piece, and for thinking they can "make it better"...LOL. Dumb red neck hicks. Of course reality TV is mostly fake so you'll never know.

crash

They are building a car that isn't a true F40 the paint is one thing but making a car lower to the ground is going to make it less valuable. If I was Ferrari I wouldn't recertify a car that these hacks are chopping on.

The F40 is my ultimate most favorite car ever.

Seeing that black F40 on the track, made me like it a ton. I was skeptical at first, but I think it looks great.
