About a 100 pics but kinda cool Acura to Ferrari
Wonder what their profit margin was???
That wasn't a Nissan ... that was an Acura NSX, which WAS a really nice car.
Wow. Some people
I knew that too...I used to think an NSX was a Nissan guess I had a brian fart
how do you mold fiber glass like that?
or did they just buy it all?
They build molds out of wood, then gel coat the mold, glas the mold, roll the mold, pop the mold out of the frame and it should already be whatever color they want it... they did it backwards though... building the molds and glassing, then painting afterwards...
no the wite stuff is fome rubber, they glueed it all on and cut/carved there way to a the look they wanted then meshed and resened over it, and pull the rubber off the backside,
there are waxes you can use on molds to stop it from bonding
i thought it looked fine before... but one has to respect the MAD amount of effort/time that must have taken to do...
Yeah, I liked i better originally, but that's some insane work. Imagine if you went complete custom
OK, first question is why?
But first response is WOW.
That is a ton of work...and i think they did an awesome job.
Saying im not a huge ferrari buff, i would definiltey be fooled if i saw
that driving down the road.
Its nuts how much width they had to add, saying an NSX is pretty wide to begin with. I wonder if that was to match actual ferrari width, or if it was just to cover the tires.
As good of a job as they did, i still think its kinda dumb, but to each his own.
I feel like its kinda the whole body kit before performance mods idea taken to the EXTREME.
Why is pritty simple. POONTANG. The NSX is a nice car, but you can buy a used one for under $30k. A new one is stull under $70k. They took that and turned it into a replica of a $300k car. I'm sure they spent well under the $230,000 to $270,000 difference in making that car. The only problem is..... it still has a ricer motor. The NSX 6 cyl V-Tec motor isn't that great. The NSX is a fantastic car for racing on a track full of corners, but my old 97' Mitsubishi Eclipse smoked them on the track..... I had about $5k under the hood which is fairly significant for that car though. Was running over 300 horsepower and 330 torque. (MASSIVE TURBO) But, after I wrecked it doing 130 mph and didn't get hurt, I counted my blessings and moved my interestes to four wheeling. Wish I had 5 grand to put into my Blazer now..... still paying off the credit card from the eclipse though
you can do that with a Pontiac Fiero too
