World’s first Ferrari pick-up truck can lift heavy cargo
Ferrari is meant to be a sports car, burning the tarmac at break neck speeds. But a pick truck and Ferrari don’t mix in anyone’s wildest imagination. Or do they? London Motor Group has recently revealed a Ferrari 412 pick-up which is undoubtedly, the world’s first ever Ferrari pick-up conversion. Made from a 1989 Ferrari 412, this MUV has a flattened 3 feet load bed and refitted suspension to do heavy lifting of cargo from one place to another. Virtually making this classic sportscar a pick-up truck that has class written all over it.
Apart from the removal of roof on the back side to make it look like a pick-up truck, the vehicle got a slight facelift with shotgun like hood scoop. To make the vehicle an entertainment powerhouse, Bang & Olufsen speakers are also fitted. To enhance the sound coming from the exhaust, the exhaust system modded to have a refined sound or fierce growl.
This remodeling of Ferrari 412 into a pick-up vehicle is done for History Channel’s Ultimate Wheels series and no doubt the project turned out to be good. Not only can this scarlet Ferrari burn some rubber on the race track but also transport heavy cargo when needed.
According to History Channel’s Ultimate Wheels series and LMG founder Elo:
This is one of my favorite cars of the TV series – something truly unique and even experienced Ferrari technicians like what we’ve done. The rest of the series sees us work on a VW camper, a Ford Mustang, a Group B rally-inspired Audi, a unique Bristol and many more amazing conversions.
