You know, there are a lot of kits of weird cars out there, and those are the ones I like best. Sure, there are more stylish cars, but I like the things off the beaten path, so to speak. That’s why, if you told me I’d buy a Ferrari kit, I’d have laughed.

 

Well, look who’s laughing now! Check out my out of box review for the absolutely bizarre the Ferrari 308 GT Rainbow!.  This is really proof that the 70’s were just really all about bad ideas.

I have that one. Curbside kit to say the least!!

Looks like it may also have been designed for motor, and 

maybe headlights!

Never have seen or knew that car even existed. Curious to see it built.

Fascinating...I'd seen pics of the 1:1, didn't know it was kitted.  The kit seems to be inaccurate as far as some details like the side windows...

It looks like a Fiat X19.

I think I just threw up a little in my mouth! The styling is positively wretched.

Looks like something I drew in the 4th grade, only worse.

Cool review though - I appreciate the style.

Looks a bit like a Lotus Esprit done exactly wrong.

 

I see a bit of the Fiat too, only it works on the Fiat.

The proportions of the body seem way off on the kit. The original is a striking, if not especially pretty, example of 70s Italian design. The kit doesn't do it justice.

That is one of the ugliest cars I have ever seen. Anyone that would do that to a Ferrari would drink their own bath water.

Does look like an X19...on some really bad steroids. :D Wait,Fiat owns Ferrari don't they? If so they should have kept their designers out of the studio.

Look at the car again and then think Death Race/Post Apoc, and suddenly the build possibilities open up. I would build this in a NY minute.
