Backyard Ferrari Of The Day: 1980 Corvettari Daytona

While most Fauxrraris tend to be based on the mid-engined Pontiac Fiero, you can also find Daytona replicas based on the good ol' C3 Corvette. Since the small-block Chevy can be made to churn out power well beyond anything ever put in a factory Daytona, a Corvettari can be very quick (though the Corvette suspension… » 12/10/08 2:00pm 12/10/08 2:00pm

The Turbo Buick-powered Fauxborghini Diablo we saw yesterday looked pretty quick, but only 400 horsepower? The real thing came with more like 500 horses, so we had to find a Fauxborghini that could beat that figure. Sure enough, here's this tube-frame brute that gets 600 fuel-injected horsepower (or maybe that's bull » 12/04/08 12:30pm 12/04/08 12:30pm

Backyard Lambo Of The Day: Canadian Turbo Buick-Powered Diablo

Just to show that not all Fauxborghinis are Fieroborghinis, we've got another tube-frame, turbo Buick V6-powered machine, from way up north in Alberta. The engine has a claimed 400 horses, feeding a modified Audi transaxle… but, sadly, it appears that only two of the wheels are being driven. We can't help but think… » 12/03/08 3:00pm 12/03/08 3:00pm
