Trezetta is on a distinguished road
Default Trezetta

Some of you might have seen the sketches I made of my Trezetta and with the help of some members here I now have a final design. Iím sure you already got it but the name Trezetta is Z3 backwards in Italian, with an extra T :-)

I actually started building a while ago but havenít had the time to write about it. Right now the car looks like this:

And this is the final design I went for:

But before I made the sketch above I had to figure out if it was possible to build a car like this based on a Z3. As you can see, the back of the car is extended quite a lot but the front is about the same size. The critical part was to make the headlights work without interfering with any structural parts.

As you can see, it all looks doable, but shaping something in real life is totally different than sketching two-dimensional. My plan has been to use as much of the original car's lines as possible and try to make them work together with my lines. I always thought the Z3 had something despite itís hideous front and chopped off back.
