Try the factory, but I don't know what '**** off' is in Italian.

Sorry. Not very helpful.

But to be honest, you will not be able to build a Ferrari like this, as even if you get a workshop manual it won't contain anything more than assembly/dissembly of certain parts of a specific car.

If you plan to copy a Ferrari exactly, you'll need a ton of money, a lot of skill, and a machine shop to make all the bits that Ferrari pop out by the dozen. In short, you could buy a real one for less.

Silly idea, in my humble opinion.

Sorry to post this here everyone.

Chassis, I cant seem to reply to your email address. To be clear. I am selling my 348 GTS. It is not a kit, I will not be selling it through you. If you have a serious buyer then let me know & I'll pay you a flat fee, not a percentage of the car price.

By the way, and for what its worth, there are plenty of replica car makers out there. I wouldnt bother trying to compete even with them, let along Ferrari/Lamborghini.

I'm the last person to be negative about people being enterprising but maybe be a little more realistic. Perhaps consider working on some kind of Westfield/Caterham copy which might be more successful.

Maybe I am misunderstood... You want to build your very own engine from scratch, your own chassis from scratch and put a Ferrari body on it?

Sorry but that sounds like madness to me... Are you seriously considering investing maybe hundreds of thousands of pounds into developing your very own engine and then building a ferrari body onto it?

If you are maybe you should be seeking professional advice from people who have helped start up similar businesses.

Flat fee?

How much?

I thought it was American. Maybe built in California.
But now I know.
