Noble?

Rabbi 10-04-2012 19:28

Nope.

GlockinNJ 10-04-2012 19:28

:dunno:

USMCsilver 10-04-2012 19:29

Ferrari. Not sure which...?

whitetiger7653 10-04-2012 19:30

The front intakes remind me of the modena but the pillar intakes are lambourghinish

GlockinNJ 10-04-2012 19:36

looks too inelegant to be Ferrari.

With the squarish headlights and gaudy wheels it looks like a glorified Saturn.

A "riced out" camero! With all sorts of weird body kit parts.
ETA: just noticed the right hand drive, a Holden!

Ferrari FX
 
The Ferrari FX is a Ferrari automobile which was custom made for the 29th Sultan of Brunei by Pininfarina. It featured the flat-twelve engine of the Ferrari Testarossa and a 7 speed sequential transmission from the Williams BMW Formula One team. Only seven cars were ever made, six of which were delivered to the Royal Family in Brunei. After the Sultan cancelled delivery of car number four, Dick Marconi bought the car from Williams. Car number four is now on display at the Marconi Museum in Tustin, California. The FX has a top speed of around 205 mph (330 km/h). yet Ferrari claimed "We don't want to make the fastest car in the world" when they made them

Shucks, I showed up too late to play...and I've flown for "His Majesty".

There you go.

the badge on the nose was enough to identify it. no one else builds a rectangular, yellow badge with business card proportions.

Never seen that Ferrari before, ever.

Lot of interesting 1 off's on this website if anyone is interested. Found it while I was trying to see what the back of that car looked like.

How about this car. It was built in a town I grew up in.

I know it is a WILD technicality... (I agree with you but I do like technicalities for the sake of "ah-ha...")

Jaguar xj 220

I like the car and knew a few people who worked at the factory in Bloxham near Banbury. At the time it was made it was the fastest car at 220mph.

Little remembered fact, in 93, they actually put on a racing series with that car (in the US) called "Fast Masters"

That was....uuummm....really something. An insane something.

I had a very minor part in that debacle. (as minor as it comes) as in, "clean this/fetch that...."

Darnit. I thought that one was rare enough (and ugly enough) that nobody would know/care :faint:

Lee-online 10-04-2012 20:49

Qvale Mangusta

Now the original De Tomaso Mangusta and De Tomaso Pantera are awesome cars and i would love one.

In general, you are going to have to get pretty obscure to "get me." Outside of one offs (and not many of them) if it was made and sold through a dealer network, the chances are high I will know it.

....you are going to have to get biblical, like finding Moses car to "get" Bill...and even then, he probably did the first oil change in the thing and had to chisel the new tires for it out of Jerusalem stone himself!

Bill Powell 10-04-2012 20:59

The problem with the 220 is finding one that actually runs. I put a clutch in ours. couldn't depend on it to run, had heating issues.

Sure is sexy looking, though. Nothing wrong with that aa v-12 wouldn't cure.
