…It’s Tuner Tuesday: MAT’s Ferrari 308 GTB?

1977 Ferrari 308 GTB FIA Group 4 Rally Car

When you think of rally racing and rally cars, you probably don’t think of Ferrari’s prancing horse, but Makela Auto Tuning sure does, since they were the creators of this fantastic 1977 Ferrari 308 GTB FIA Group 4 rally car.

The process involved stripping the entire car down to its bare frame and then building it from the ground up using all new parts, and the end result speaks for itself.

Be sure to check out their site for more than 250 pictures that document the entire process and every step along the way.

…It’s Tuner Tuesday: Nissan/Ferrari 250 GTOZ?

Ferrari 250 GTO

This fake might not fool a Ferrari fan, but it sure does look pretty good to me.

Starting out life as a 1977 Nissan 280Z, this “street rod” version of a 250 GTO has had every body panel changed and modified, a BMW V12 engine and Getrag 6 speed transmission installed, and right hand drive put in just “to make it different”.

The end result is a beautiful (and very accurate) creation that looks good and drives even better.

BMW V12 in a Ferrari bodied Nissan Z car? Perfection.
