    If someone speaks French, please, translate this :)

    Alors aujourd'hui pour tout vous dire, je crois que je ne vais pas trop bosser.. du moins sur ce coup.. et je vais vous laissez faire.. En effet au risque de dire des bêtises et de me faire insulter sur la plaque publique par les puristes, je préfère donner la possibilité aux amateurs et connaisseurs de Ferrari et de F40 plus particulièrement de nous faire partager leur science sur ce roadster..
    Bien évidement il s'agit d'une réplique.. mais la base m'échappe, a l'instar de la motorisation et de tout ce qu'il se passe en dessous..

    Cette barquette est aussi un très bon prétexte pour se régaler d'un stand vraiment très bien fourni.. un régal !!!

    the text says something allong the line of:

    the car is a replica but by making this he wanted to show Ferrari lovers and more particular F40 - people see that a roadster is a possibility
    he doesn't kown the base or motarisation or anything that goes on under the bonnet.

    more or less

    It may be a replica, but if it's at a F meet, it must have F power if not more.

    This is not a replica, it is a real F40 with the correct motor.
    The first owner was a Belgian Jean Blaton.

    Just a little more expensive than a "simple" 348? (~ +5000€) How strange ...

    This is a real F-40 IMSA, look at these pics taken during the building of the car.
    You can see the original F-40 bodyshell removed and cut to make the spyder.
    Sorry, these are crappy pics taken way before the digicams era.

    And this is an F-40 similar (made by Kroymans from a "stock" F-40) to the donor car actually for sale in Belgium. As these cars aren't made for 24H races, they haven't frontlights.

    I mean it is cool, but why cut up a F40 to do this? Was this with factory approval or something?

    That's like asking, "Why cut up an Enzo to make the P4/5?"

    It's what the owner wanted. :)

    Is it worth to cut up an Enzo if the result will be the P4/5? I think Yes ;)

    I think "Yes!" too - on both accounts.

    However, I do think if this F40 barchetta were red or even black that more people would really love it.
