Speedy Bread

 

Updated : Jul 25, 2009

Two friends crossed a Citroen 2CV with a Ferrari - and produced a bread van which can do a staggering 180mph.

The bizarre hybrid took the pair five years and cost more than £150,000 to put together.

They took the chassis and engine of a speedy Ferrari F355 Berlinetta and combined it with the body of a 12bhp Citroen 2CV Fourgonnette bread-van.

To finish it off they gave the 2CV's ageing white body a glossy Ferrari red paint job.

And they slapped a yellow shield logo, very like the iconic Ferrari prancing pony motif, on the front above the famous Citroen double chevron emblem.

The result of their efforts is a stunning vehicle that churns out almost 400bhp and can go from 0 to 60mph in less than five seconds.

The car was put together by Nicolo Lamberti, 35, and Milko Dalla Costa, 51, who run the Italian 'Nimik' rally team.

Nicolo said they found the Ferrari at an 'interesting price' and had the idea to combine it with the 2CV after seeing it abandoned in the back of a garage in Turate, in Northern Italy.

He said: "We decided to purchase the Ferrari even though we didn't know what we were going to do with it. But because of our crazy minds we were confident that an idea would soon come to us.

"Then we saw the 2CV and Milko, who is a Citroen collector, had the idea of combining its body shell with the Ferrari. The 2CV hardly cost anything because it was in such bad condition. It had no engine and all that was left was the body shell."
