Replica Heaven

New Zealand Classic Car - - Future Car Ferrari 330 P4 Replica -

Due largely to the 330 P4’s gor­geous Pin­in­fa­rina-de­signed looks and, of course, the scarcity and huge value of the orig­i­nal cars, a large num­ber of repli­cas of this iconic sports racer have been built over the years — with per­haps those de­signed by Lee Noble be­ing at the top of the tree. Other no­table P4 repli­cas in­clude the South African BMW V12-pow­ered Bai­ley–ed­wards ex­am­ple. A hand­ful of be­spoke repli­cas have been con­structed us­ing gen­uine Fer­rari en­gines — the 400i V12 be­ing a popular choice — and on the open mar­ket such cars can com­mand prices as high as $250,000 while those fit­ted with lesser en­gines such as Rover V8s can be snapped up for con­sid­er­ably less.
