Here's How You Can Own A One-Off Bentley Continental For Under $16,000

That's not a typo, you really can own a "limited edition" Bentley Continental GT3 for the price of a Scion iA.

Scanning the classifieds for unusual cars can be a great way to waste time at the office, and also dig up some pretty strange cars. This one that popped up from Autoweek hails from Holland, and if you really want to own a one-off Bentley Continental GT3, we’re sure plans could be made to bring it Stateside. Of course there's a catch to such a cheap Bentley, and in this case it's because the Bentley isn't a Bentley in any way, shape or form. OK, scratch that - only in shape.

What you're looking at here is a Toyota Supra, if you can believe that, a very cleverly disguised one. The dimensions seem right from the pics, but the wheels are the first telltale sign that things are not as they should be. The underpinnings and interior are from a 1992, 4-speed automatic 3.0-liter Supra with just 77,000 miles on the odo. We assume this is a modified engine setup because the advert claims a 0-60 mph dash of 5.1 seconds and a top speed of 155 mph. The suspension and damping are adjustable thanks to a full Tein setup, so in theory the "Bentley" should handle pretty well, possibly better than an normal Bentley but not the GT3 version.

There's no information as to what the bodywork is made from, but we're guessing it's fiberglass thanks to the sale price being so low. It does have original Bentley LED taillights and projection headlights along with all the right livery in all the right places. It would be a fun car to drive as a laugh, but there's just something that feels wrong about using fake things, especially when they're fakes of famous brands. It's not the worst faux Bentley we've seen, but we're still on the fence with this one. It's interesting and done well, but we wouldn't want it parked in our garage.
