Coach-builder recreates classic 1952 Ferrari 340 Mexico Berlineta - only 3 of which we ever made

Coach-builder Gullwing America has announced its new project, this one-off Ferrari F-340 Competizione, based on the 1952 Ferrari 340 Mexico Berlineta.

That 1952 model was built for competition in the Carrera Panamericana race in Mexico. Only 3 exemplars of the car were ever made.

Proprietor, Arturo Alonso, from the San Antonio, Texas-based Gullwing America, will be re-inventing the model using modern technology. The car will be based on a 456 Ferrari platform that will be re-bodied in aluminum and hand-made by Australian Mark Nungent. New additions will include a diffuser, rear spoiler, side vents and front splitters.

Power will come from a 5.4 liter V12 producing 476 PS (350 kW / 470 hp) coupled to an original 6-speed manual transmission. Modern tech on the car will include the brakes and taught suspension.

On the inside, the look will remain close to the original car but will feature modern touches such as the carbon fiber seats, a roll bar, a special luggage set and chronometers.

whoever owns one of these must be sure to fight 60s era world class spies and be cool at all times though the lack of head support makes me leery, because honestly, I would drive the sh/t out of this car!

You're probably right; renderings are probably all we'll ever see of this striking design. I like everything about it except the steering wheel...the headlights, seats, wheels, and etc are all updated. why not the steering wheel?

The gullwing america company has no production cars on their website, only computer generated pictures, I think this is a big scam

okay, a lot of names going on here. kinda confusing. so it's an F430 Competizione (or do you mean F340?), based on the '52 340, on top of a 456 platform?
