Ferves Ranger

This car has been the protagonist of one of the biggest auction surprise of the recent years.
The Ferves Ranger is a patchwork tiny offroader created using the Fiat 500 engine placed on a custom chassis.

Most of the cars’ parts come from Fiat production, including the Fiat 600, 850 and Autobianchi Primula. One of these tiny vehicle has been auctioned by @rmsothebys in Monterey California in 2019 and it seems that two gentlemans started to bid against each other to get it.
Maybe it was only a joke for the two guys or they has been misleaded by the name “Ferrari”: Ferves Is an acronym of Ferrari Veicoli Speciali, a tiny company created by Engineer Carlo Ferrari that clearly has no link with the “Commendatore”.
Anyway, the auction ended up with an incredible assignment at $196,000!!!
From that day, EVERY SINGLE classic car fair here in Italy featured one of these offroader, with people trying to replicate that result! Despite the US auction and the tiny production numbers, these cars are usually sold at around 20.000 €😉
