That one actually looks like a work of art next to these.
Unlike fake purses and sneakers, these Bugatti Veyron replicas won't fool anyone. Still, people want what they want. When that’s a car that costs over $1 million, you get creative. If you thought the Mercury Cougar-based Veyron that recently sold for $59,900 on eBay was bad, rest assured that it could have been much worse. How do we know that? Because we've seen quite a few of these things. Luckily for you we've rounded up the best of the bad. Check them out and let us know what you think in the comments.
India is known for getting creative with its small cars. Remember that this is the country that created a replica Lamborghini Sesto Elemento, after all. So it should come as no surprise that India is home to this, a Veyron replica built out of a Suzuki Swift. To be fair, this replica doesn’t look awful. Goofy, yes. Butt ugly, no. The body work is nicely done and from the side it looks kind of like a Veyron that was hit with a shrink ray. And honestly, if you have to drive a (the newer ones don’t look half bad) why not dress it up a bit?
This Veyron replica began life as a 1997 Audi A6. Somewhere along the line this happened, though. This replica is just a bit short of the Veyron’s power output with its 2.8-liter V6 making 200 horsepower. But hey, at least there’s a six-speed manual controlling all the action. This replica was actually put up for sale at an asking price of $40,000. That’s quite a lot of money to ask for a replica that looks this bad. But hey, the heart wants what it wants. Sometimes that’s half of an Audi A6 with a burlap sack in the shape of a Veyron’s body thrown over it.
The problem with this Veyron replica is that it’s not quite finished. Still, that didn’t stop the person behind it from trying to sell it. Now there are worse things in the world than a 2004 Pontiac GTO dressed up to look like a supercar. Hell, one CarBuzz commenter said he’d fork over $15,000 for this thing as is. Unfortunately that’s just a bit shy of this car’s asking price of $105,000. For that you get a fiberglass replica with a Stage 1 modified LS1 Corvette V8. With 400 horsepower and 400 lb-ft of torque you’ll easily be able to blow away the other replicas seen here. But you’ll also have to do without a front windshield, grille, paint, etc…
As you’d expect we’ve saved the best for last. This creation is known as the Civic-gatti and it’s well, yeah… Would you believe that it only took an eight-piece fiberglass body kit to turn a 1994 Honda Civic Coupe into this? In terms of looks this may be the weirdest car here. The proportions are all off and for some reason it has scissor doors. The interior is exactly what you’d expect from an early ‘90s Civic but at least there’s a sunroof. The last time we peeked at its eBay listing there was a bid of $7,600 for this bad boy. Beauty truly is in the eye of the beholder.
