Benedetto Bufalino has created a way for you to turn your everyday vehicle into a Ferrari Testarossa at only a fraction of the cost. While it might not be as high-quality as a real Ferrari, it definitely has a lot more going for it in terms of amusement factor. Some of the key features include a hot-red paint-job, hand painted rims and tires, metallic foil tailpipes, and the all-important Ferrari logo emblazoned on the rear.

The cardboard construction is designed to slide over the hood of a regular car, secured to the roof and sides. Cut-outs for the front windshield and passenger-side windows ensure the driver is able to see where they’re going. This essential element means you can even take your new Ferrari out on the streets and show it off to the neighbors. Safe to say, they will be jealous.
