It Came from eBay Hell: Ferrari F50 Replica Based on the Fiero, Powered by the Corvette

Just about every Ferrari model from the 1980s and 1990s has seen a replica equivalent based on General Motors’ God-sent present to the industry, the mid-engined Pontiac Fiero, and the exotic F50 is no exception.

Today’s eBay find comes from Scottsdale, Arizona, with the Fiero chassis draped in a fiberglass body that mimics the styling but not the dimensions of Ferrari’s range-topping sports car that was introduced in 1995 to celebrate the company’s 50th anniversary.

To provide more grunt, the replica maker swapped the Pontiac’s V6 for a Corvette LS1 V8 engine that has been lightly modified to allegedly produce more than 400-horses that are channeled to the rear wheels through a four-speed manual gearbox.

The seller says that the car needs some attention in certain areas including the body, the suspension and the steering systems.

The last time we checked on eBay, the highest bid on this glorified Fiero was $8,000 (€6,100 or GBP 5,000) but the reserve had not been met.
