alternate tips for it, but have not installed them. (i just don't like the
tips that's why there not on it) they would extend to far out and i didn't
think the look was good, but i will include them cause everyone has there
own likes and dislikes.

cooling when your in that parade and not moving quick for the air flow.
UNLIKE SOME REPLICA'S this vehicle has been on the road since 1997 as a
Lamborghini, so it has a proven track record of being road worthy, so there
is no worries of bring it home to fix something after having it out for a
cruise, all you have to do is wash it for the next day hahaha. The car is
Vinned as a fiero modified, which works wonders for insurance costs, AS
WELL, the time was taking to build this replica with PERFORMACE AND SAFETY
in mind, (why have a car that looks like the real deal but has a under
powered V6 in it) I've never understood that, have the look, but sacrifice
power and sound...

HUGE Fiero Compilation , 250+ Pics
*Guys, Thanks so much for the 50,000 views! Please leave comments if you
want, I try to answer all the ones I can.
I collected all these photos for myself when I had my Fiero because each
picture inspired me in some way, never thought putting them in a slide show
would get people watching. If you know anyone with a Fiero, lead them here
so they can get some inspiration/ideas about theirs too.
The Worst Ferrari Ever
Keith Martin of Sports Car Market magazine walks around what may be one of
the worst "Ferraris" we've ever seen... a very badly done Boxer replica.
2014 Ferrari FF - WR TV POV Test Drive
Today we’re fortunate enough to be behind the wheel of another one of
Maranello’s finest, the FF. The first all-wheel-drive vehicle in the
company’s history, the FF replaces the 612 Scaglietti in Ferrari’s
lineup. The shooting brake design of the FF is said to recall the shape of
the Ferrari 250 GT SWB Drogo race car and also draws some inspiration from
stable mates like the 458 Italia and the 599 GTB Fiorano. The FF is powered
by a 6.3-liter naturally aspirated V12 making 651 horsepower and 504
pound-feet of torque, which is connected to a seven speed dual clutch
transmission similar to the unit found on the F12 Berlinetta. Ferrari’s
own patented 4RM all-wheel-drive system then routes the power to each of
the four wheels as needed, leaving the car most often in a traditional rear
Among the numerous highlights of the FF, carbon ceramic brakes,
magnetorheological dampers, and an electrically controlled rear
differential all come as standard. This particular example comes loaded
with options, including a panoramic roof, sport Exhaust system, diamond-stitched seats, special
20” forged wheels and a premium audio system, bringing the grand total to
$371,108. So what’s it like to experience $370,000 worth of Italian
supercar? Time to find out

This Ferrari 512 M Changed the Racing World Forever
When the Sunoco Ferrari 512 M first appeared at Daytona in 1971 it was a
revelation. Manned by a dream team that included owner Roger Penske, chief
mechanic John “Woody” Woodard, and drivers Mark Donohue and David
Hobbs, the car combined Ferrari’s pedigree with Penske’s legendary
attention to detail in everything from his crew’s uniforms to the
polished wheels. Slated to run at Daytona, Sebring, Le Mans, and Watkins
Glen, this 512 M was the odds-on favorite every time the Penske team rolled
it onto the starting grid.
In a historic run of bum luck, however, the car never won a single race.
Debuting at the 24 Hours of Daytona, Donohue put the 512 M on the pole.
Just before midnight, however, Vic Elford blew a tire on his Porsche 917
and in the ensuing slowdown, Charles Perry and his 911S ran into Donohue
and the 512 M. The Penske crew taped and patched up the car as best they
could and watched Donohue and Hobbs fight their way back to a third place
Next up was the 12 Hours of Sebring, where the 512 M was once again on the
pole. In the fourth hour of the race, away from photographers’ cameras,
Pedro Rodriguez, driving a Porsche 917, rammed Donohue multiple times,
sending the Ferrari into the pits for repairs. Once again, the pit crew
managed to get the car back on the track, where it finished sixth.
Shipped to France for the Le Mans 24 Hours, the Ferrari 512 M was
considered an underdog against the long-tailed Porsche 917s, which had a
speed advantage over the Ferrari. Alas, the Sunoco team barely got a chance
to prove itself: the 512 M retired with engine failure on Saturday evening.
Finally, it was back to the United States for the Watkins Glen 6 hours.
Donohue was leading in the 54th lap when a broken steering knuckle sent him
into the pits and out of the race. The Penske team came back the next day
to run the car in the Watkins Glen Can Am race but the car’s original
racing days were over.
Despite its misfortunes on the track, the Sunoco Ferrari 512 M and the team
that ran it remain among the most important racing stories of the 1970s. At
a time when racing teams paid little attention to “spit and polish,”
Roger Penske demanded that his cars and his teams be precise, disciplined,
and spotless. Remove bad luck from the equation and this insistence on
excellence would’ve paid off. As it is, it still changed the world of
motorsports, as other teams quickly realized that they would have to change
their own operations if they hoped to compete successfully in the long
