1986 Zimmer Quicksilver Adds Classic Style To The Pontiac Fiero

Only 170 of these kit cars were ever built, and this is undoubtedly the nicest you'll find.

The mid-engine layout of the Pontiac Fiero has made it ideal for sports cars replicas such as Ferraris, Lamborghinis and even Ford GT40s, but one of the most original is the Zimmer Quicksilver. Only 170 of these Fiero-based kit cars were built between 1984 until South Florida-based Zimmer went out of business in 1988, and Gas Monkey Garage is selling a like-new 1986 Zimmer Quicksilver that has just 465 miles on the odometer.

As if the low miles and even lower production numbers aren't enticing enough,  this car has a throwback design that exudes elements similar to classic GM luxury coupes like the Cadillac Eldorado and the Oldsmobile Toronado. There is lots of chrome on this car with big bumpers and wire wheels, and the white paint job is contrasted by the bright red interior. The overall design has surprising balance with its loped nose and boat tail, but despite the rebodied exterior, the interior remains mostly stock with the exception of a new center console, different seats and stitched trim.

The long hood might tease classic front-engine, rear-drive luxury coupe proportions, but the Zimmer Quicksilver retains the Fiero's 2.8-liter V6 and three-speed automatic transmission; even though the Fiero was offered with a manual transmission, all of the Quicksilvers had an automatic. This well-preserved example would make the perfect addition to any collection!

Gas Monkey Garage hasn't published a price for this 1986 Zimmer Quicksilver, but considering its rarity and immaculate condition, this unique car probably isn't going to be cheap. If you want to own a cool and ultra-rare car from the 1980s, click HERE to make an offer.
