    Really?

    The 1990's Lotus Esprit looked pretty good to Me, as do some of the 90's TVR's and the Lotus Elise.

    As for kit-cars, the Phantom Vortex was a nice looking design:

    The early Esprit is an o.k. looking car. But once GM got hold, they became garbage. TVR's look o.k., same with the Elise, get close and you can see how lousy fiberglass is for cars. I'll even include the 308's in this mix. And that's my second favorite design wise of all cars on the road.

    side note: my great uncle died this week. I know have family over. Us boys are watching Wheeler Dealers and they are doing a TVR. I bashed the fiberglass to my relatives, just now.

    The car is good as it looks, I happen to see it when it was released in 1997!

    Replica Kit Makes Base | eBay


    Enzo kit that was molded off a computer scanned 3d model CNC cut and molds made. Bought kit from Canada it was very rough. Spent 10 ,k on body work already. Body has been mounted to cut down donor care.
    Donor car is a 1992 Acura NSX with only 77k miles on it. In its own right a very nice sports car. That when new it was 100 grand.
    Roll cage and doors need fabrication, but past that it is a running driving Enzo.
    Now this is a 2 million dollar car. So it's going to take some money to get a exact look to make it extreme. But this is one he'll of a start.
    I have two tail lights also.
    I got 34k in car as is, but I will sell minus wheels for 25k.

    I got 2 original tail lights from Enzo for rear
    The Wheels are not included in auction but can be purchased

    ... obviously !

    I've never seen something more ugly than that - "horrible" is the matching description for it

    It's local car. We've been debating whether to chip in to buy it and take it to Monterey Car Week. Perhaps filming people's reactions with hidden cameras. It does have many similarities with the new Lambo will debute there at 1000x the cost. :)

    For a car of that value,... Have the owner take to the nearest Ferrari dealer and have it Classiche Certified. Well worth the cost!

    Just to complete the process... It is definitely worth videoing the cars arrival at the dealer!

    Damn. These replicas are getting too good to tell apart from the real thing. If it wasn't for a minor detail that was screwed up in the engine bay I would have been fooled.
