It was a good-looking car, until they tried to turn it into an 8C and missed by quite some distance.

I'm guessing it wasn't cheap to do either - are those genuine 8C wheels?

This has been doing the rounds for a couple of months. It was even in Auto Italia classifieds, I guess there has been very little positive response and I'm not surprised.

Strange thing to do, at first. Then you think about it, and there is a kind of desperate aspirational logic to it. It's probably quite nice to drive.

Would I like it on my drive?

No, the shame would kill me.

i can see why someone may want to convert an MR2 into a 355 Ferrari. That's an upgrade I get.

But the Maserati Coupe is a desirable and very nice car in its own right. To make one look worse and not really that much like the intended subject, seems a bit odd to me. Each to their own, mind...

Yes, but it would be nice to drive as a 4200 :)

I disagree 110%. The MR2 MKII is a lovely motor to start with. Once you glue plastic panels that fit like a donkey's breakfast along with ludicrously wide wheel spacers and the fact you look a bigger **** driving your plastic pig than the real thing then I don't get it. Well I do, it is because the owner in many cases believes that folk will think he/she is a cool as.. :lol: driving a Ferrari :lol:

An upgrade it is not. This really is a downgrade.

However I agree to the point that to butcher a beautiful Maserati into this abhorrence is criminal.
