    Roof is removed to create a “convertible"
    “A" Pillars reinforced.
    Black Canvas Retractable Top added
    Automatic motorized one button operation
    New Cabin “cage” for stability
    No appreciable loss in drive stability/performance
    New double aerolon “hump” rear deck lid
    New two tone metallic paint on windshield frame
    New two tone metallic paint on double aerolons “humps”
    No other mechanical mods
    Drives like the original donor car
    Exciting, new sporty lines
    AWD, V12, top down 4 passenger supercar
    Full size, long wheel base for a commanding presence



    Our long time Customer visually designed the concept for himself based on his love of the prancing horse V12 experience. With 264 days of sunshine in Florida, he wanted to enjoy an “ open" drive on the AWD, V12 platform and share it with friends, family and colleagues in a true 4 seater. A depreciated FF or Lusso offer the best value in technology ( so much car for the money ) and drive thrill to invest the engineering and design resources to convert. Visually, for those that shy away from the existing “square” or “station wagon” rear silhouette of the original FF or GTC4Lusso car, this design offers an exciting new look with the value proposition of AWD V12 technology, sleeker lines and open top functionality to connect with that V12 purr. The same conversion works for an FF or GTC4Lusso donor car. A truly unique resulting convertible.

    What’s notable about the design?
    The donor Ferrari’s long wheelbase provides a commanding full size presence in person. Photos rarely do it justice because it has a scale unlike any other Ferrari. Since the rear is wider than the front giving it an aggressive stance, this conversion respects this “masculinity” and retains and enhances the rear with 2 aerolons ( “humps”- he made that word up since “humps” don’t sound as cool ) that will wrap the rear headrests and flow back to the end of the trunk like a fighter jet. An offsetting two-tone metallic silver paint will accentuate these dramatic new lines that should turn heads from behind ( see scale model photo below ). Dual aerolons pay homage to so many classic convertible designs of the past. This car as a convertible scales well particularly to taller drivers who don’t feel as comfortable in smaller traditional spyders. It’s a AWD, V12 supercar convertible for 4 adults that you can drive every day.

    Who is doing the engineering and conversion?
    Well established and industry respected convertible designer and coach builder Jeff Moran, Founder and CEO of Custom Builders LLC, is converting the car. Custom Builders LLC has been doing convertible conversions since 1974 based in central Florida and has a reference standard resume. Jeff is personally overseeing and engineering the project. Our Customer and Jeff are converting two Ferrari's for themselves. This is a “bucket list “ passion project for both of them from an artistic, visual, mechanical and pride of ownership perspective.

    Why sell it?
    A substantial financial investment has been made by our Customer for the initial design and engineering. By offering an additional limited run of conversions to a select few like-minded enthusiasts, the cost of the engineering will be load balanced across the entire limited production run. One off bespoke projects can run $300-500K. Doing a limited production run reduces the price per car closer to $100K.

    What is the production status?
    This pristine 2013 Ferrari FF donor car is in production. The canvas roof top and motor mechanism is 95% complete ( not installed yet ). The double aerolon new deck lid design is in production now for installation soon ( see scale model ). Final delivery of this bespoke completed convertible is expected mid to late summer. The conversion is available today for pre-order. Pics and Video will be updated regularly as this car progresses toward completion.

    How do I buy one?
    You can buy the “donor” Ferrari FF ( featured in this ad ) today and take delivery when completed ( as well as a participate in the production process which is why the donor car is advertised now ) OR you can buy just the conversion from us for your existing or recently purchased FF or GTC4Lusso for $99,999 + shipping both ways OR you can buy a different FF or Lusso from us and we’ll make you a package deal. Turnaround time is 2-3 months.

    Yes. One year parts and labor from Custom Builders LLC on all things related to the conversion. Any issues with the underlying donor car not related to the conversion remain between you and your Ferrari dealer or mechanic. No mechanical aspects of the car are modified outside the roof removal etc. Marino Performance Motors will always assist and support you in every way we can since this is a limited run. We’ve been in business for 25 years because we support our customers especially AFTER they buy from us. Your long term satisfaction is important to us and we have a proven track record helping resolve issues.

    Is this Ferrari endorsed?
    No. This is aftermarket and no one should mistake the resulting converted car as a product or conversion from Ferrari itself. This is why badging has been removed in promotional material to respect Ferrari’s trademark. Individual owners for private use may badge their cars however they please but because we are commercially promoting our aftermarket conversion publicly, we voluntarily removed the Ferrari badging based on standard industry practice and respect. Other than the roof mechanism and associated reinforcement no other mods are made to the original donor Ferrari.

    What about safety?
    Convertibles are inherently more dangerous than their counterpart hard top cars. That’s simply an undisputed fact. “A” pillar reinforcement and adherence to US federal safety standards is why our Customer chose Custom Builders and Jeff Moran to do the conversion in line with the same safety standards as OEM convertibles that come directly from the original factories.

    Apologies to users seeing this subject again. The analytics for this site suggest most users do not visit all sub-threads. We have three different audiences for this project:

    Classifieds to buy/sell a particular car
    FF specific to upsell the conversion only to existing owners
    General Discussion to expose the car to non-FF minded folks who would not see it otherwise

    Again, apologies to those of you seeing it more than once.

    I've always thought that the nose and belt line of the FF would lend itself to a nice convertible. I always like those Straman 456, a manual came for sale recently and it was a tempting fantasy.

    Subscribed to follow along.
