    That would be one BIG Lotus. :)
    Looks like a Euro car (by rear valence, anyway). Wow - that car is low - and those must be 18 or 19 inch wheels. Lowering a Mondial that far is no easy feat, I can tell you, and especially it looks like he was able to keep a reasonable rear camber. Interesting rear light panel, exhaust and door sills. There is a lot of work in that car just from what little I see.
    best,

    I prefer my slow poke Mondial 8 whose only upgrade is the fuse box.

    Looks like a ricer-mobile. That's the tough part on customizing a Ferrari, very few are done well. A Mondial coupe is a tough candidate with the shape of the back glass.

    I'm sure the owner likes it, otherwise he would'nt have done it. But personally I don't care for it. Like someone else said. "looks like a ricer."

    Hideous...looks like the owner is trying to make it look like an NSX based on the tailpipes and wing....

    probably wouldn't be bad if it didn't have the wing.

    If you think that's something - ran across a series of photos on Alta Vista search where someone bolted a Mondial 8 body on top of a Monster truck frame.

    I agree with what many have said. It would look a lot better without that wing.

    I don't usually like a lot of modification, but the softened and rounded 512 TR Can-Am Sports looking one 1/2 down the page in an 'alphastar' post looks way better than the original.

    I can guide you to a set of Konis with adjustable collars for your Mondial...but maybe you've already done this?

    Many thanks! Have them on the rear; They are quite different from 308s and typically require a bit of machining to match the top mount... that's why lowered Mondials usually represent a bit of effort.
    Have the fronts on order... like the cams... :p

    "...that's why lowered Mondials usually represent a bit of effort..."

    Unless its a Mondial t. They come equipped right from the factory with the goods.

    Ferrari really got it right with the "t." 300 HP / dry sump / adjustable suspension (dampening & ride height) / abs / power assisted steering... Its a treat.
