  • TAG : Fuel Economy of the 1987 Pontiac Fiero
  • While browsing through eBay's listing trying to find an interesting car, we've stumbled upon this 1987 Pontiac Fiero that was transformed into a Ferrari F40. The vehicle is powered by a Cadillac 32V Northstar V8 linked to an old three-speed automatic transmission, which according to the listing doesn't go into the third gear. It rides on 18-inch alloy wheels wrapped around Pirelli PZero tires and comes with large Corvette brakes for all four wheels.

  • The brakes on the 1984-87 Pontiac Fieros are four wheel disk. They utilize a solid, unvented rotor and have a set of rear calipers that can be actuated mechanically as well as hydraulically. The mechanical actuation is used for the emergency brake. Pontiac redesigned the Fiero brakes in their last year, 1988. This upgrade is NOT for the 1988 model year cars.

The rotor on the top is for a 1990 Chevrolet Beretta. The rotor on the bottom is a stock rear rotor from a 1987 Pontiac Fiero. Both rotors use the same wheel bolt pattern and offset. Both are the same outside diameter. But, the Beretta rotor is thicker and vented. Thus, it runs cooler and is less likely to distort due to overheating.
