Tom Selleck’s mustache is what usually comes to mind when one thinks of a red Ferrari 308. Designer Carlos Pecino, however, had a completely different vision. His rendering of a resto modded Ferrari 308 is called The Brawler MHC 001 and is a sinister take on a classic 80s supercar. According to Pecino, with the Ferrari 308 “The Brawler,” the design goal was to keep the car’s original shape but add a proverbial chip on its shoulder and make it more aggressive. The car sits on a set of big, meaty Hoosier slick tires directly inspired by NASCAR stock cars. The Brawler also wears a slightly wider body to house the bigger wheels with a roll-cage and wears a midnight shade of black gloss paint.
A dream car would not be complete without rendering something special under the hood, and the Ferrari 308 Brawler MHC 001 is no different. The car’s race-ready-attitude is backed by a 4.0-liter twin-turbo V8 taken from a McLaren 720S. That means The Brawler packs 710 horsepower and 568 pound-feet of torque behind its punches. The car also uses a MonoCage II passenger cell from the McLaren 720S to enhance The Brawler’s handling. Now that we’ve seen it, someone, somewhere, needs to build it!
