2003 Ferrari 360 Modena Cut in Half
According to a Street Machine article in 2018, a man named Scott Marshall imported a 2003 360 Modena to Australia, then used an air hacksaw to cut it in half after two weeks. "She's a genuine Ferrari 360 that we imported from England," Marshall told Street Machine.
Marshall stripped the interiors and added aluminum chassis extensions to elongate the Prancing Horse by three meters while the new midsection and gull-wing doors were all built from fiberglass to save extra load.
Then, they packed the vehicle with additional eight seats, two TV screens, a stereo, and additional air conditioning system. The modifications, added about 1,100 kg on the car's weight.
Meanwhile, its 400-horsepower V8 was retained, although its manual gearbox was replaced by an automatic from a Subaru Legacy GT to make driving much easier.
However, Marshall said that it may not live to its name when it comes to speed. "It goes through chicanes grouse, sounds like a Ferrari and goes like a Ferrari - but not as fast!" he said. Well, that is quite understandable with such a super elongated body.
