Car Modifying: Turning a Toyota into a Ferrari

The Ferrari 360 currently costs approximately $156,000 second hand which is a large reduction for the vehicle. A brand new Ferrari, will cost a buyer no less than $750,000 and can cost thousands extra depending on the specs of the supercar.

A new trend is emerging for those who really want to have a Ferrari in their garage but can’t afford the new or second hand prices of the vehicle. Some car hobbyists who know a thing or two about modification have successfully changed their Toyota MR2’s into Ferrari 360’s. To the untrained eye, the design is almost flawless.

Any car can be modified or converted into a different model under the hands of an expert. But the Toyota MR2 is considered a special vehicle for Ferrari 360 because the base design of the vehicle is very similar to the Ferrari. This means, only a few modifications are required before the MR2 becomes a great looking Ferrari 360 by design.

The modification capabilities of the Toyota MR2 are so impressive that some custom designers were able to modify the vehicle into a Ferrari 460. It’s a bit more challenging compared to the 360 but as the base of both cars is similar it is still possible.

There are already conversion kits available online for owners of the MR2. For only $2,000 (shipping not included), you can have a kit that will convert your Toyota into a Ferrari. You could even buy a used MR2 for less than $7000 which means you could have a good looking replica of a Ferrari 360 for less than $10,000.


The people invent everything. As if that makes any sense... It's only design or mechanics too?
