This Pontiac Fiero does its best Ford GT40 impression

Relatively cheap and mid-engined, the Pontiac Fiero is considered a nice “donor vehicle” on the tuner scene. Many people who create replicas of Ferrari or Lamborghini cars choose it as their starting point. Our today’s Fiero does its best to look like the Ford GT40… but doesn’t quite succeed.

The tuner team started with a 1987 Pontiac Fiero. They outfitted it with a Kelison body kit, made the front part pointier and cutting an air intake in the hood cover. They also added gull-wing doors, something you wouldn’t normally see on a GT40.

The engine bay of the modded vehicle conceals a 4.9-liter Cadillac V8 engine equipped with an Edelbrock intake. It works in tandem with a five-speed manual transmission.

The interior of the car sports red-and-black upholstery and feels rather tight. Actually, tall people might have trouble getting inside due to the low roof.

The replica costs 35,000 CAD, which roughly corresponds to 26,500 USD.

What about you? Would you consider buying such a car for yourself?
