Sadly we are not discussing a Ferrari California, but for 40,000 euros this replica is about as much Cali’ as you’re going to get. Underneath you will find the 300 bhp 3.5 litre V6 and six-speed transmission normally wearing a Nissan badge.
These kinds of replicas are normally the butt of all the jokes around here but in fairness to this it is a valiant effort. To the untrained eye this could easily pass as Ferrari. To those in the know tell tale giveaways are obviously that odd 350Z-esq coupe window line and of course the six cylinder soundtrack when the car gets up it. Not to mention some very Japanese interior components that have been fairly neatly amalgamated with some Italian touches.
Should you so desire, this kind-of-California is up for sale here:
Marktplaats, call it the Dutch version of Ebay.
What do we think of this wannabe-Cali’? Granted it’s a replica but its nowhere near the embarrassment of some of the shockers we’ve seen around. It’s not exactly a Honda Civic Veyron…
