A street car named 'Desire'

A name not always associated with quality but, with a bit of work (and more on some than on others) they make some of the best racers around.

I have had a Proslot Ferrari 355 sitting around for ages, it was a yellow 'Coke' hard top and looked rough to say the least.

Time for a change and as I always love the Real 355 Spyder I set out to do some serious remodelling..

here is the result...

Spec: No magnet and no weight.

Motor - Evo3
Axles (solid both front and rear) - Slot.It
Pinion, crown gear - NSR
Wheels - MBSlot Aluminium
Tyres - Front - Proslot original. Rear - NSR Magnetic
Guide and braid - Slot.It
Lights - Overdrive with additional brakelights and extra SMD leds for fronts (usual ones would not fit)
Seats, Seatbelts and driver - Fly
Soft top - plasticard, hot glue and tissue paper.
Paint - Automotive Ferrari Metallic Blue ( Special Order)
Decals - DMC

I cut away three sides of the light units and raised them, then built the side frames and back unit from plasticard. Covers are cut from a Slot.It container.

I am going to!

Those MBSlot wheels really set it off!

Mmm... this is nice!!!

Very nice work Swiss!!! This car looks great!!!
To bad for the yellow "light-thingies" in the head lamps...

The wheels are fabulous!!!


Oh, YUMMY!! I've got a proslot F355 sitting around as well. It is DARN fun to drive and VERY consistent, though a bit on the slow side... I never tuned it.

Great work. You are quite the craftsman.

Nice job, the 355 is my all time favorite body style. Really nice work on that one, the color is great also.

Nice job - I will share the supply of Detail Masters brake rotors in exchange for the supplier of those awesome wheels..

yes swiss looking good
it's a kit car
bit's from 1 and bits from another
didn't now though you could turn a metro in to a ferrari
reminds me of a kit you can get to turn a full sized mr2 in to what looks like(from a distance) a 355 but it still sounds nothing like a ferrari
