You can own a Ferrari California for £23,000...sort of
It's not the best I've ever seen...
Scrollig through the classifieds on eBay is one of my favourite things to do. You will come across all manor of things, great and well...crap.
In this instance, I stumbled across a Lexus SC430 disguised as a Ferrari California for £23,450. It's a good effort but not that convincing.
This is labelled as a 'super rare replica' and was recently resprayed in 'Rosso Corsa', whic is an actual Ferrari colour. And as it started life as an SC430, it still has a 4.3L V8 which puts out around 300hp, just over 200hp less than a real California.
One of the biggest give-aways that this is fake, if you can't already tell from the looks is the 2003 numberplate. As you will probably know, this generation of California was not made then, but it's nothing a private plate couldn't fix...
This car has also featured twice in magazines as being a good replia, and to their credit, it isn't awful but I would much rather have the Lexus underneath. And with a £23,000 asking price, I would much rather get a tatty old Lexus.
