In a twist that’s turning heads faster than a high-speed lap around Monza, a Ferrari 430 Scuderia replica has hit the market in Vadodara, Gujarat, with a price tag that’s got automobile aficionados and casual observers alike doing a double-take. Listed at an eye-popping INR 16.75 lakh, this first-owner marvel has clocked 80,000 km and comes fully equipped with insurance, pollution under control (PUC) certification, brand new tyres (complete with a warranty bill), and a comprehensive service history backed by bills. Registered under MH04, this automotive chameleon is believed to have started its life as a humble Toyota Corolla Altis before undergoing a Cinderella-esque transformation.
The craftsmanship on display has garnered mixed reactions from netizens, with user arnav.voorhees remarking, “For the horrible replicas I’ve seen in India, this is not bad.” Meanwhile, 6.isth sheds light on the car’s storied background, suggesting, “If I’m not wrong, this has been built by Executive Mods Faisal…this car has been in the market for almost 8 years or more. Really nice body to chassis combination.”
The Ferrari facade has certainly fooled some, but it’s the car’s backstory and execution that have become the real points of conversation. The replica’s existence raises the age-old question of whether imitation is indeed the sincerest form of flattery, or if it’s simply a shortcut to prestige on a budget. Whatever the case, Vadodara’s very own Faux-rari is proof that with enough creativity and engineering ingenuity, even the most unassuming sedan can dream of life in the fast lane.
