I didn’t know that Ferrari went after kit car owners who copied their design. Or is there some rule that if the car is only 90% accurate then it is not considered a copy. Any car enthusiasta know anything about this?Also if you rip out the original body of your original car and install some fiberglass replica body, does that affect safety in case of a crash???
I did not find the right solution from the internet.
In the 1990’s Ferrari went “huge” against some replica manufacturers. Put a few out of business as I recall.
I haven’t seen anything recently.
To the crash safety, I’m not an engineer, but I’d say definitely yes! Everything structural in a modern car affects it’s performance in a crash, that includes the body skin. It’s all part of energy management.
