When A Ferrari Met A Citroen 2CV

Ever wondered what you’d get if you crossed a Ferrari with a Citroen 2CV? No, me neither. Well one pair decided to give it a try.

Nicolo Lamberti, 35, and Milko Dalla Costa, 51, who run the Italian Nimik rally team spent 5 years and $250,000 to make the odd couple come together.

They took the chassis and engine on a Ferrari F355 Berlinetta which they had found at an “interesting price” and combined it with the body of a 12bhp Citroen 2CV Fourgonnette bread-van which they found abandoned in the back of a garage. The result of the project is a bizarre looking vehicle which can go from 0 to 60mph in under 5 seconds and has a top speed of 180mph.

A crazy idea and a crazy hybrid. Well done chaps.

Thanks Jarrett. It was a weird but wonderful invention. Have you seen the crazy motorcycle sidecar. It’s another very odd genius vehicle creation. Here’s the article – http://pigjockey.com/2009/07/10/motorcycle-sidecar-or-car-sidemotorcycle/
