A Few Of Our Favorite Bugatti Replica Fails
Published April 5, 2016
Although we would never advocate buying counterfeit goods, it’s easy to understand why the sale of some fake items can be such big business. Let’s face it, if you haven’t got the money to buy a genuine Rolex, you’re not exactly doing the company out of any money by stumping up fifty bucks for a fake one from the Far East are you? It gets a lot more serious when people try to sell fakes off as the real thing though, especially when it’s something as expensive as a car. Thankfully, nobody is likely to mistake any of these Bugatti Veyron replicas for the real thing, and it’s easy to see why.
As a real Veyron costs somewhere north of £1 million, it’s easy to understand why some people might want to get one for a whole lot less, even if it isn’t the real thing. After all, we’ve all seen some pretty sweet Ferrari and Lamborghini replicas that look like the real thing until they pull away from the lights that is, and you realize it’s actually a VW or something underneath.
You have to wonder why anyone would want to spend real money creating one of these monstrosities though, never mind actually buying one from someone. Despite the fact these creations aren’t fooling anyone, a 2001 Mercury Cougar-based Veyron replica recently sold for an astonishing $59,900 on eBay. However, although it’s obvious to almost anyone that it wasn’t a real Veyron, it’s pretty convincing when you compare it to some of the ones we have here.
Come on guys. For just over $5k more than the eBay car you can get yourself something like a genuine 2016 Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat. And the extra credibility that comes with it is free of charge!
