Kiddo Motors, the trading name of Sergio Armet. He’s a one-man-band running a custom and service workshop in Barcelona, Spain, and this is his first build. “Kiddo Uno” started life as a 1988 Honda NX650 Dominator, but it’s a very different machine now—with deep classic colors and a rich, quilted brown leather seat.
Gullwing America calls it the Ferrari 340 Competizione, as it pays tribute to the original 1952 Ferrari 340 Mexico. Only three of those racers were made, and they were designed specifically
to tackle the legendary Carrera Panamericana where, fittingly, Mercedes’ 300 SL dominated.
The modern interpretation takes a Ferrari 456 GT as its starting point, retaining its 470-horsepower 5.4-liter V12 and six-speed manual transmission, but upgrading the aerodynamics, suspension and brakes, draping fresh aluminum bodywork over the mechanicals. The interior likewise pays homage to the 340 Mexico, but packs modern touches like carbon fiber seats.
