    Really interesting and super weird at the same time... as much as I love the original designs they’re trying to emulate, I wouldn’t sacrifice any on these beautiful cars for the proposed transformations. I’d rather go with the original, thanks.

    I am somewhat flattered (I think) by the following quote:

    “a Ferrari GTC4lusso is about to sacrifice its innards to re-emerge as a 2018 homage to the once-unloved but newly cool Ferrari 400”

    I would have to correct this by saying: “our cars have always been cool... the fact that you’re just discovering it now is your problem!” :D

    Cheers,

    Ruben

    Doesn't work for me but "retro" never does.
    I'm thinking whoever would consider this custom could also have proper examples of both cars.

    Rather nice. But an original seems like a bargain......

    I love that anything associated with Top Gear calls the 400 newly cool! I like the Lusso as is, but do like the lines of the conversion, and love that our cars gorgeous lines are being acknowledged.

    Problem is, GTC/4 Lusso is about the dumbest name for the car. The FF as a name was perfect. I’d convert the GTC4 Lusso just to rid myself of that stupid name.

    I agree about the name. Obviously trying too hard to capitalize on some of Ferrari's earlier iconic cars. If that is what they want to do, why not go all the way and call it the

    "400i GTC/4 Lusso Short Wheelbase Berlinetta Daytona Superamerica TDF Testa Rossa"? :D

    Notice what I did there? ;)

    Wonder if it makes more sense to do this with an FF? They can be had much cheaper. Unfortunately they don't have the double lights in the back though.
