Is this a real Ferrari?

This guy is claiming his car is a "Ferrari with 1989 McLaren-Ferrari wheels". I say it is a Fiero.

Reasons I think it is a bodykit:
- Side markers are wrong shape, place, and color
- Keyhole is in the wrong spot
- Door lines match up with a Fiero, and not a Ferrari
- Louvres are all wrong for a Ferrari, and do not line up as actual Ferrari louvres do
- Lack of badging
- Wheels look like hubcaps. (Ferrari never covered the lugnuts except for a chrome cover on Testarossa wheels from everything I could find online)
- Gas cap location is a bit off.

To me, it looks like a Fiero Mera knockoff kit.

Opinions?

Re: Is this a real Ferrari?

NO. I made them. At least part of them and my brother and law and sister made some other parts of them.


Its a Mera. Made by 3R industries.


I was looking for one on the internet to show my wife.

I made the louvered shade behind the left and right windows.

My brother in law made the fenders.

Sorry but it is true.

Re: Is this a real Ferrari?

if i saw it going down the street i'd do a double take, which is exactly wat a bodykit on a fiero is supposed to do(especially one that looks like a car 4x or 5x as much

For those that want a bit of entertainment, the idiot making these claims has surfaced again. Hop into the alt.games.diablo2 newsgroup via Google Groups and do a recent post search for Mickey. Highly entertaining!
