Car customization is all about making that unique vision come to life in metal and gasoline, and well, this particular Pontiac Fiero is most definitely unique, sporting a Ferrari-themed exterior, and riding on a massively lifted Chevrolet Blazer chassis. When it comes to weird and wacky builds, this thing is among the weirdest and wackiest.
Let’s start up top, where we find a 1984 Pontiac Fiero shell wrapped in Ferrari-themed styling. The final product is meant to look like a 1985 Ferrari Testarossa, and comes complete with the traditional red paint, side intake decals, and badging front to back. The look also includes prancing horses on the fenders.
Of course, dressing up the Pontiac Fiero to make it look like a Ferrari is nothing new. However, this example was then plopped on top of a Chevrolet Blazer chassis, and sports a massive three-foot lift (give or take a few inches). Not only that, but this Fiero is now four-wheel-drive, and runs Futura Dakota RVT all-terrain tires in the corners and a big bash bar up front.
Of course, the original mid-mounted 2.8L L44 V6 engine was tossed during the conversion. Instead, the rear deck lid now gets a decal showing off the twin-turbocharged 2.9L V8 from a Ferrari F40. Up front, the Pontiac Fiero now mounts a 350 cubic inch V8 engine, which exhales through pipes that terminate just underneath the cabin space in white glasspack-style mufflers. The ‘eight is mated to a three-speed TH400 automatic transmission.
This Ferrari/Blazer/Pontiac Fiero has been on the used market before. In fact, we covered it back in September when it hit Craigslist with a listed price of $9,500. Now it’s headed to Arizona as Lot #400.3 at the 2020 Barrett-Jackson auction in Scottsdale. Who knows where it’ll pop up next.
