This is a rolling conversation piece.
While there are many fans of the Pontiac Fiero, GM’s mid-engine sports car from the 80s, nobody in their right mind would mistake it for a Ferrari. However, this 1986 Pontiac Fiero wears a body that looks like a Ferrari Enzo if you squint just right. This is the kind of vehicle you get to draw all kinds of stares and get questions everywhere you go. It’s also being auctioned on Cars & Bids right now, so you could make it yours.
The owner of this unique car calls it a Fierri, which sure does sum up what it’s all about. Thanks to a fiberglass body kit, it has the appearance of a cartoon version of the Ferrari Enzo, a car most of us could never afford but definitely have admired. Plus, there are scissor doors for added dramatic flair. By owning this Pontiac, you get closer than you probably ever will to realizing some of your wildest dreams.
A number of interior modifications are obvious, namely the two-tone upholstery. A Chevrolet Cavalier bravely donated its super-advanced gauge cluster to further the ruse of this being a Ferrari.
You might be thinking this Fiero looks familiar. That could be because you along with so many others saw it on the Car Bros YouTube channel or at the Concours d’Lemons where it gloriously won a Worst in Show award. It’s also possible you caught this Fierri when it was featured on Jay Leno’s Garage. It was also featured during the 2019 Quail Motorsports Gathering. Forgetting a masterpiece like this is pretty much impossible.
Certainly, this Pontiac has gotten around and generated all kinds of interest. It’s still running the factory-original L44 2.8-liter V6 engine, although a clever cover will fool a small children into thinking you have a massive V12 in the rear. The original transmission is also included for that authentic GM 80s nostalgia.
