Alberto Ascari may be back from beyond the grave...and he wants attention.
Yesterday there were tons of cool cars out and about on the streets of Manhattan. But this was by far the most unusual sight of the day. I tried to find out more info about what this kit car / replicar was online, but to no avail. So All I can say is it appears to have a 4 cylinder powerplant, and seems to be like a 3/4 scale replica of an early 50s Ferrari Grand Prix or F2 car. It was certainly a cool toy, and very loud. The guy behind the wheel was grinning for all the iphone cameras that greeted him at each stop light on Spring Street. Clearly the guy craves attention. Why else would you risk being squashed by a cab in order to drive a fancy go-kart on the streets of Manhattan? But hey, I give the guy one bit of credit. He's clearly doing it for the fun, because you can't pick up chicks in a monoposto!
