    Now there is a good reason to reintroduce the death penalty.

    Look on the bright side guys, the loon has blown dough doing this to the lovely spider and devalued its resale at the same time. An enthusiast will be able to buy at a bargain price and cut the crap off and return to a near original look. A loose win scenario.

    It could be worse (that 505). Take off the rear wing and the replace the front skirting with something a little smaller and it wouldn't look too bad. The yellow bits in the interior are horrible, but at least he has a shorter gear stick. That white dash would be hard to keep clean, but is kinda cool. I think it is odd he still has the standard seats though.

    As for whether it is stock underneath or not, I'm not sure but it does have a large exhaust poking out of the centre of the rear of the car.

    I'd be interested to know how those wheels are attached to that 505 - that certainly isnt the stock wheel stud spacing...
