It looks like a DC design with some Ferrari badges and red paint!

I really doubt it that its a Ferrari, Usually Ferrari has those star shaped alloys and i have'nt seen a deep dish design ever on a Ferrari, plus styling cues are very unlike Ferrari. But whoever did this car up took real good care about detailing like the badges and paint.

this is a 'ugly' car from ferrari.

I know the designer of pininfarina died, but they can't go so bad. this is is NOT a ferrari. Period.

This is the new contender for "Herbie gets muscle". Just look at the broad smiley face. Dead giveaway that!
Seriously though, it's way too hideous to be a ferrari

This isnt a ferrari for sure. If it were a concept it wouldnt be unvieled like this. It wouldnt be standing there with a couple of Porsche 911's.

Some random designer with a random car and ferrari stickers.

Any more info on the cars specifications. Looks like a good track car.

This is a Ferrari AFAIK. I've seen pictures of these cars quite some time back, and remember reading it's a restyled 348. The authenticity of that article or the accuracy of the information I read is something I cannot guarantee.

Edit : Yes I'm quite sure of it now. Google Ferrari Michalak to see what I'm talking about. Year 1989, donor Ferrari 328.

The finish is good, but the design isn't the best.Pity the 328 had to undergo such a change!( The 328 & 348 GTB are one of my all time favorite Ferraris).
