    OK, ready? Here ya go:

    http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/2000-TOYOTA-MR2-FERRARI-360-SPIDER-MODENA-replica_W0QQitemZ330222763262QQcmdZViewItem?hash=item330222763262

    If this dirtneck could've resisted the urge to slap counterfeit Ferrari emblems all over the damn thing, this could have been simply a unique looking little roadster. But noooooooo. I'm thinking someone's a little small in the pants.

    Dig the 3 sizes too big shields! Also, I'm sure the thunderous roar of that 1.8 liter four will have everybody looking twice to see if it's the real deal.

    Repost. The guy said everyone on FChat must work for a Ferrari Dealership since that's the only way you could tell it was a replica.



    Been trying to find out when I got a job at a dealer ever since . :p

    A transaction with this clown should be prohibited, if for no better reason, than his ruinous lack of proper grammar.
    Some personal favorites are his explanation of the ridiculous mileage difference -- 'cause, ya know, what's 120,000 !!! miles between friends?
    And this line: "The vehicle grabs a lot of attention, you would feel like a celebrity." Hmm, I would? I guess he means if it were a real 360 Spider, I would.
    As for the no-one-can-tell-the-difference aspect -- among the myriad of other inaccuracies -- since when did Ferrari employ the thick, black masking tape around the headlights look? Hideous.

    Is this an old Toyota Supra from the '80's trying to be a 575 or something???

    Man these replicas are HIDEOUS! That 360 is the saddest looking example of a replica I have EVER SEEN!

    If this guy thinks it looks just like a 360 he must be blind because it looks NOTHING like a 360! YUCK!

    I was almost fooled by this fool, but two things gave it away. First is the 4x4 ride height, is this a rally version 360? Second, no clear engine cover, wtf, is it too hard to fab some plexiglas?? Oh, what's that you say? Oh if you put a see thru panel, someone might see that there's not enough cylinders there. Ok, if you don't let anyone see the engine, they will be fooled.

    I feel as if I'm seeing Porsche 944-like styling in the front.

    I was thinking more 348... The bottom is projecting forward quite a long way. The 944's are back behind the leading edge of the bumper by quite a bit.
