A Ferrari California replica is currently being offered for sale and if you won’t pay attention to the details it might have you fooled for the real deal.
Usually when speaking about replicas in our articles the vehicles in question are pretty kitschy but every once in a while one of it is making a comeback. This is the example with this Ferrari California replica which is currently being offered for sale on eBay UK. The model in question has an asking price of 39,950 GBP, the equivalent of 55,200 EUR, and it has been based on a 2002 Mercedes-Benz SL500. The roadster has been converted into the pre-facelift Ferrari California and, judging by the images posted below, DNA West Coast has done a pretty good job converting it.
The roadster has covered 49,000 miles and it is powered by a 5-liter V8 engine, connected to an automatic transmission. It has a right-hand drive layout, 0 previous owners and a full service history, so if you are interested in it, you should check it out here. Keep in mind that the cheapest version of the California, the real one, offered for sale these days is carrying an almost 90,000 GBP price tag, so you might fool your neighbor and kids with this one. The California has been in production since 2008 and it recently received a massive facelift, in the California T, back in 2014, which has also replaced its engine with a new twin-turbo V8 3.9L, producing 552 HP (412 kW) and 557 lb-ft of torque.
