If Helen of Troy’s face launched a thousand ships, Marcello Gandini’s Alfa Romeo Carabo concept from 1968 most certainly launched two decades’ worth of wedgy, mid-engine machines, a number of them penned by Gandini himself during his tenure at Bertone.
This car, however, is not that car. This one was built in California, by legendary car builder (and father of Chip) Sam Foose back in 1972. Bertone, understandably, was hesitant to part with the Alfa Tipo 33-based one-off, so Foose was commissioned to construct an open-roof replica of the car on De Tomaso Pantera mechanicals. Yes, that’s a walloping Ford 351 Cleveland standing in for the original car’s jewel-like 2.0-liter V8.
The Clonerabo has floated around a bit, having last been spotted on eBay in 2010. It’s now up for grabs at an eminently reasonable $55,000. And unless you’re Murilee Martin, it’s a damn sight more desirable than a Pontiac Fiero-based Lamborghini Countach. But would you take it over the Cadillac NART Zagato?CarDVD-Player.net All Right Reserved.Back to Shopping on: Car DVD player car dvd player with GPS for Toyota Car DVD Player with GPS for Honda Car DVD Player with GPS for Hyundai Car PC Car DVD Players Headrest DVD Player Audi DVD Player BMW DVD Player Buick DVD Player Chevrolet DVD Player Citroen DVD Player Daihatsu DVD Player Ford DVD Player Fiat DVD Player GMC DVD Player Honda DVD Player Hyundai DVD Player Lexus DVD Player Kia DVD Player Mazda DVD Player Mercedes-Benz DVD Player Mitsubishi DVD Player Nissan DVD Player Opel DVD Player Peugeot DVD Player Skoda DVD Player Renault DVD Player Suzuki DVD Player Toyota DVD Player Volkswagen DVD Player Rear Camera
