The 20 Most Interesting European Cars with American Designs

  1. Ferrari Daytona 365 GTB/4

This one is a bit controversial since nobody expected a Ferrari to look like anything else than itself. However, in the case of the 365 GTB/4, Ferrari turned to America for design. In those days the company needed a strong seller to survive. So Enzo Ferrari decided that a new car should be designed to sell on the American market.

That is why the Daytona had a style that looked more like a Corvette than a Ferrari. It has a long pointy front end, pop up headlights and round tail lights. It also has chrome bumpers similar to those on the Corvette C3.

  1. ZIL 114

They modeled all those Russian limousines and luxury sedans after American cars. So, in the case of the ZIL 114, the role model was the Lincoln Continental. The Russians copied the front and the silhouette of this cool sedan for their ZIL 114.

However, the ZIL didn’t use suicide doors and the rest of the features. They presented the car in 1967 and produced it until 1978. Many high ranking government officials used this car.
