How To Ruin A Ferrari

I didn't know it was possible to do a bad Ferrari body when Enzo was in charge.  His famous quote on the subject was "My cars must not only act the part, but look the part."  He gave the coachwork contracts to people he trusted: almost always PininFarina, Turin,  Bertone, and Scaglietti.  True, there were a few brief excursions into eccentricity in the 1950's  (Buick-like portholes, for example).  But even the oddities and one-offs were interesting; none were terrible.

One commenter says this body is by Carrozzeria Sports on a 330 GT 2+2 chassis.  Another says it's a Drogo NART Speciale on a 250 GTE chassis (which appears to be the case from the script on the trunk). Either way, it looks like a badly customized AMC AMX: start with bad proportions, add hideous, stir until irretrievable.
