Taking a car like the Ferrari 360 Modena and trying to improve it with a bold new design is only going to end one of two ways. One is that the resulting car will be a perfect masterpiece while the second is that it will be nothing more than an unpleasant explanation for the fact that it was a subtle supercar. We’re not 100 percent sure if this Sbarro Alcador GTB actually falls into the second category, but it certainly doesn’t look anything like a donor car.
First presented at the Geneva Motor Show in 2008, the Sbarro Alcador GTB was commissioned by the Linhard family and apparently, only three examples were produced. Thanks to one of those units hit the used car market in Germany Mobile.d. In addition to looking completely different from the typical 360, it is significantly more expensive, asking মূল্য 395,000 ($ 422,000), an exorbitant sum when you consider that used 360s are available in Germany for around € 70,000 ($ 74,838).

The difference between the Alcador GTB and the car on which it is based is the brand new bodywork that has nothing to do with the 360. The front of the car has round headlights and turn signals, similar to the TVR Tuscan. The unique bodywork continues along the side where Sbarro has overhauled the shape of the door, wing mirror and glass canopy.
One of the main reasons why the Alcador GTB differs so much from the Canopy 360 is that the car knocks on the door of a pair of butterflies. The rear of the car is as bold as the front and the side, it has a glass engine cover, large air intake, standalone taillights, a strangely shaped bumper and quad tailpipe.
As far as we can tell, the 360 Modena’s 3.6-liter V8 has no performance changes, meaning it is pumping 394 hp (400 PS) and 275 lb-ft (373 Nm) of torque.
