    I think it's time to dig this picture out again.

    I think it needs more louvers. :)

    If the VIN is 76390, the build date was around March '88.

    I can remember that it was the first in a fleet of about 10 differnet pace cars, all driven by Female drivers (!!) and the Ferrari stood out....even amongst the vipers, vettes, and such.....maybe because everyone was wondering what the hell it was......it dis sound great if I recall, and had no problems keeping up with anything on the track....until the IndyCars came out that is..........If I recall, there was also a Diablo in the fleet as well.....

    Interesting rear glass treatment-makes for more sleek side profile over the normal Mondial coupe. Not wild about rear louvres, the nose treatment, or multiple black stripes on the side.

    that was my first thought with the windows.

    other than that, it should be SPACE CAR not PACE car. but.. original indeed. not my taste, but pretty neat that it was done.

    At the first pic the PPG car looks like a 360 Modena.
    Would the design of the 360 be based on the PPG car?

    Actually there are some aspects of this car I really like ... to me the front and rear are more exciting looking than the Mondial.

    Just my opinion.
