    Fornasari 311 GT is a coachbuilt Corvette

    The Fornasari 311 GT Looks Italian But Is Actually A Coachbuilt Corvette

    Part of the Geneva Motor Show’s charm is the ability to see some of the lesser known players in the industry and their offerings, like the Italian Fornasari and its undoubtedly retro-styled 311 GT.

    The coachbuilt model’s design is inspired by the classic Italian front-engine GTs of the 1950s, featuring an aluminum body and offered either as a coupe or a convertible.

    Under its classy body lies custom space frame with components sourced from the Corvette C7, including a V8 engine available with up to 641hp (650CV) and 590lb-ft (800Nm) of torque. It even has a six-speed manual transmission, with a six-speed automatic offered in the options.

    I know beauty is in the eye of the beholder, but in this case it looks like I need another beer.

    Sorry, but it's ugly.

    Yikes... Those are some very poorly made aftermarket headlights for the 2001-2006 MINI Cooper/Cooper S. They would have been better off sourcing the actual BMW/MINI part.
