4610 Pet Lane
Fans of Miami Vice, or even just great Italian style will want to pay attention to this 1980 Ferrari Daytona Replica. And beneath the exotic looks is a C3 Corvette. That means you have an easy to service V8, a fully-independent suspension, four-wheel disc brakes, and even an A/C interior.
This car gets the look absolutely right. Both the Daytona and the Corvette need a long nose to fit the sizable engine, and so it sets the tone correctly as the custom bodywork has an ultra-sleek and stretched front end. There are also nice details, like high-gloss black paint and the Daytona's waistline crease that starts behind the front wheels and circles around the rear. Plus, this is the only time you're getting a C3 Corvette with a proper trunk! And there's a true sense of speedy style with the Plexiglas front hiding the headlights, flared fenders, quad exhaust tips, and genuine wire wheels. It's such a good representation that it's not hard to see why it wears the prancing horse and Pininfarina badges. This car is absolutely a replica, but quality ones are known to stand in for the real thing. Fans of the show Miami Vice know that for the first few seasons Don Johnson drove a replica Ferrari Daytona Spider just like this one. So that's why these always get extra attention and a big nod of approval.
This has a proper convertible top in a matching black, but really, a car like this was made to be open to the world. There are nice details to share, like the artful door panels, distinct high-back bucket seats, and even a proper Momo sports steering wheel with Ferrari center cap. You also have great features like an AM/FM/CD stereo, power locks, a tilt steering column, and provisions for power windows (will need servicing to fully function.) There's even cold-blowing air conditioning so you can do your best Sonny Crockett on sunny days without breaking a sweat.
For a lot of us, it's what's under the hood that makes this one desirable. Yes, it's not a Ferrari V12, and in its place, is the numbers-matching 305 cubic-inch V8. So instead of having to get to know a specialist mechanic, this replica gives you something that's easily serviceable and has a bit of history, too. Topped with a four-barrel carburetor, you get the right kind of torque to get going in this convertible. And it's an all-around good driver because the Corvette gives you a hardy three-speed automatic transmission, power steering, a fully-independent suspension, and four-wheel power disc brakes.
This is the kind of replica that will have people doing a double-take, and you already know a proper black horse replica like this usually costs plenty more. So don't delay, of this one will gallop away!
