Yeah V12, the other Rio car I was talking about is the Mondeo. I have seen it in pictures and it did look stunning. I have heard the overall finish (including the paint job) is far out.

Just saw the green scorpio this morning on the way to Matunga for a breakfast.

Way to go, Rio

hey GTO,
Is the Mondeo red in colour? Coz i saw one that was printed in one of the mags a few months ago. It had a air vent on the bonnet.

Any idea what power that Mondeo produces? or is it just an xterior upgrade?

We did see this black Mondeo with a "clothes hanger" aka "Aerofoil" when i had visited Bbay in November. Couln't see much of it as it was dark but, from what ever was visible, it was great to look at.

Do you guys remeber that Mondeo? At Carters!!!

Regards..

I was reading this thread and wanted to show you guys a pic of the finished F50. made from a 96 Honda Prelude.

Have seen the car myslelf and was pretty shocked actually. Didn't expect it to turn out that well. The rear lights, ferrari badges and emblems are original Ferrari parts.

Here's a pic of it from 5 weeks ago:

This reminds me of a thread about a Japanese guy who made his NSX into an F50. (Replicas : Exotic / Luxury fakes built on everyday cars)

This car though would look ok from a distance, but as you get closer, things go all wrong. Nice effort though I must say. That first pic looks good. And that's a nice Toyota pickup next to it as well.

The Toyota Pick-up in both pictures belongs to the owner of the F50. He also owns a Civic Type-R.

I know that NSX-F50 that you're talking about. It's black, the front looked loke an F50 but the rear looked like an F40 I think.

He should know that, when you already have a car like NSX, it is wrong to cut it up in the first place cuz it is a great car. Cutting up a Prelude is fine.....
