Ferrambo

This has been around for a little while now, but is always worth a re-visit.
If you haven't seen it before, the Ferrambo started life as a 1960 Nash Rambler Wagon, which Divers Street Rods decided to have a little tinker with...
The original body now sits on a custom-made Art Morrison frame, housing the 400hp V8 and suspension components from a Ferrari F360. The fit 'n' finish are exemplary, and it's clear that it's been built to perform rather than just being a trailer queen - the suspension and braking systems have been honed to perfection, while the V8 is cradled in a custom mid-mounted frame; the rear windows even tilt open 5 degrees when the ignition key's turned to provide a little ventilation. That's not to say it isn't a show-stopper though - it won the Ridler Award at the 2008 Detroit Auto Show. And, of course, it carries the true Ferrari ethos of performance and luxury - there's a set of matching luggage under the bonnet where the old straight-six used to be.
