When we say the phrase “kit car,” the Bugatti Veyron is not the first thing to come to mind. Our best guess is that nobody told that to the people posting this on eBay. What has come up on the auction block today is yet another million dollar sports car replica built on the frame of Ameri…. Australia’s very own Pontiac GTO. We’ve seen this before and have to assume that it’ll be as popular as the Fiero Ferrari in a few years.
While it isn’t the real thing, it’s probably about as close to the real thing as most people will be able to purchase in their lives. Heck, if you can get over the fact that you’re driving around in a replica most folks probably won’t even know the difference between what you’re driving and the real thing. Besides, we think it’s cooler to be LS1 powered, anyway. A few tasteful mods will give you as much power as your heart desires.
With a 1.5 million price tag, the majority of Americans may never even get the opportunity to own a house that costs as much as a real Bugatti Veyron. Even though it’s a just replica, the chance to own the Bugatti lookalike still comes with a pretty hefty price tag. At $150,000 or best offer, the car rivals the cost of many other high dollar sports cars and exotics.
Even though the $150k will get you the finished product in whatever color you please, is it really worth the cost? We’re going to just have to let time tell the story. As they say there’s an ass for every seat, but for that price this seat may stay vacant for quite some time.
