Mad car finance driver builds his own Veyron

We’ve heard of kitcars, DIY efforts and replicas, but this car finance driver has taken the idea of building your own car to the next level.

We’ve heard of kitcars, DIY efforts and replicas, but this car finance driver has taken the idea of building your own car to the next level. Mike Duke, from Florida, has decided he’s had enough of not owning a Bugatti Veyron and built his own – albeit a fake one.

Believe it or not, the picture you see is real. The car underneath isn’t a Veyron but a modest Ford Cougar, and has cost Mike so much that he’s now put the motor up for sale for just over 50,000 pounds. Despite the biblical price hike, you’ve got to take your hat off to Mike; he’s managed to re-create the body of the Veyron almost perfectly and fool almost everyone we’ve shown in the office.

Wonder what the Bugatti copywriting department feel about this?
