Customizers, just what could we ever do in this world without them. While some of them provide us with an outstanding job in performing a flawless nip and tuck procedure to a normal, civil looking car into a brilliant masterpiece, some would just need a little bit more practice to hide those obvious stitch marks and liposuction scars to convince the looking eyes that it is a sexy and curvy Italian.

<a href="http://www.zerotohundred.com/wp-content/uploads/2012/08/f406_2.jpg"><img class="alignnone size-medium wp-image-35220" src="http://www.zerotohundred.com/wp-content/uploads/2012/08/f406_2-600x450.jpg" alt="" width="600" height="450" /></a>

The Ferrari F430 is adored by many, and still has a steady ground of admirers today even after the emergence of the much sexier and faster 458 Italia. And on that basis, there were quite a number of replicas done by various crafted hands around the world to imitate the beauty and elegance that this Prancing horse brings, which some had succeeded very well like the*<a title="Ferrari F430 - A Sheep in a Wolf’s Clothings" href="http://www.zerotohundred.com/newforums/automotive-news/410958-ferrari-f430-a-sheep-in-a-wolf-s-clothings.html" target="_blank">Toyota Celica GT</a> that we had seen earlier on.

<a href="http://www.zerotohundred.com/wp-content/uploads/2012/08/f406_5.jpg"><img class="alignnone size-medium wp-image-35223" src="http://www.zerotohundred.com/wp-content/uploads/2012/08/f406_5-600x450.jpg" alt="" width="600" height="450" /></a>

<a href="http://www.zerotohundred.com/wp-content/uploads/2012/08/f406_7.jpg"><img src="http://www.zerotohundred.com/wp-content/uploads/2012/08/f406_7-600x450.jpg" alt="" width="600" height="450" /></a>

But sometimes it is better to leave such jobs to the experienced and skillful as what we have here is an F430 which somehow suggests that it was made out of paper. Actually, this is a pretty decent job as it does have a somewhat similar overall silhouette of the F430, and it looks like a job in progress yet to receive the finishing touches. But this Ferrari replica is actually already for sale on the <a title="Ferrari F430 Replica" href="http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Ferrari-F430-replica-kit-car-stunning-example-carbon-fibre-/200801179873?pt=Automobiles_UK&amp;hash=item2ec0aed8e1#ht_1294wt_1413&amp;clk_rvr_id=371618728883&amp;afsrc=1" target="_blank">eBay</a> page, going for £7,500.00 (RM36,300).

Originating from a Peugeot 406 Coupe, the seller puts his bold and confident statement saying that the replica is “an absolutely stunning example of the real car” and is “100% accurate outside”. He is also confident on his carbon wrap job as he states that it “shows a few creases, but nothing majorly noticeable”. Right.

<a href="http://www.zerotohundred.com/wp-content/uploads/2012/08/f406_4.jpg"><img src="http://www.zerotohundred.com/wp-content/uploads/2012/08/f406_4-600x450.jpg" alt="" width="600" height="450" /></a>

Well, at least he had almost the right skills to make a good replica which to be honest, without the carbon wrap, this F406 might have looked better actually. We would just like to wish him the best of luck on his sales and hopefully the Top Gear UK guys would not get their hands on this one as it might not come with a pretty ending.

Seems pretty okay, but the wheel arch gap is hillarious! It comes with rally-spec I guess...

I would say the Supra Convert Aston Martin did a better job. Can clearly see that this was not really a good job well done...

Sometimes I wonder why would some people waste their money on unnecessary stuffs like this...
mod up the car with good performance kits or bodykit will do...

I wont even dare park next to a Ferrari if I were him...:banghead:

What about the engine VVVVVVVVRRRRRRRRRRRROOOOOOOOOOOOOMMMMMMMMMMMMM ?

You cant expect a Peugeot 406 coupe to give that sound ?

Maybe got speakers playing the vroom sound ?

What happens when the car is at standstill and the speakers keep vrrroooming ?

hahaha....:driver::burnout::burnout:
