If there’s one thing that Chip Foose does often, it’s to show off his newest creations at the SEMA auto show. SEMA is the show that has been around for decades and it’s the place where all kinds of world-renowned fabricators show off their works of art. And the MarCel Roadster is certainly a work of art because it’s made entirely of aluminum. Before aluminum cars became all the rage due to the current generation of the Ford F-150, no one built aluminum cars. Always the innovator, Foose decided to put a custom roadster together for the world to see (via Autoweek).
The first and most notable thing about the MarCel Roadster is its similarities to early 1960s Ferrari models. The metal is sculpted with a beautiful design and is further enhanced as a result of its sculpted nose. If you’re a fan of Foose then you know that the car also has some serious power due to its engine choice. You’ll find a General Motors small-block LS3 V8 mated to a six-speed manual transmission. The undeniable styling makes the MarCel Roadster one of the most visually pleasing Foose pieces ever built due to all these factors.
