    Dincenzo, I humbly stand corrected.

    I did not know that Koenig ever did a convertible version with their Testarossa/512 mods.

    You could probably buy a real one now for what it cost to make that fake one.

    There are some cars that I don't understand the need to replicate - especially when it's done that badly.

    Actually, I don't really approve of replicating anything.

    I am astonished at the accuracy and build quality of this. If they hadn't mentioned that it was a Toyota Celica, I would have sworn it was a genuine 308!

    I think it actually looks quite cool. Not as a Gallardo wannabe but the proportions are quite nice for an econobox.

    There is not a single photograph showing the whole car a part from the last one which is at such an angle you still can't see it. No profile picture.
    However you can tell it is an incredibly poor replica that looks little like the real thing.
