Back from the Monaco GP, and what a crazy edition it was! Veyrons, Enzos, F50s, MC12 and so much more... but we'll get to it later on I guess..

Right now, let me show you one of the craziest hybrids I ever saw. I saw the cars passing by during the Villa d'Este Concorso d'Eleganza and I contacted the owner as there was a website on the car. I just had to see this crazy creation from up close. We're talking about a complete F355 (chassis, engine, brakes, interior and so on...) on which the owner adapted a Citroen 2CV furgonette body! The result looks like a tuned 2CV and I can only imagine the surprise you would have if such a car would ask you to move aside on the highway at 250+ kmh!! The car works perfectly. You might like such a move or not, but we should admire the impressive effort put into this (1500 hours worth BTW).

LMAO, how the hell did they come up with this idea  :D
Looks great, would love to show up on a trackday with this and register as a 2CV and then blow the doors of most cars.

That's amazing! Not that I like the idea, in fact I think it's more like a sacrliege than anything else... like dating Alessandra Ambrossio, and dress her to look like Susan Boyle :)

I assume the idea came up after a crash or something... 'cause I can't imagine a man in his right mind, wanting his beautiful F355 to look like a 2CV! With all my respects to the Citro?n :P

Yes, although I didn't ask for many details, I think the 355 wasn't shiny new ...

front look sgreat, the side with the wheels looks a little pimp - I like the idea of this car on german highways, left lane at 250km/h+
