Do It Yourself Bugatti: Man Builds Supercar By Hand
The Bugatti Veyron is the most expensive street legal car in the world at $2,400,000 USD. This vehicle has been endlessly tossed around in the media and hip-hop videos, seemingly putting a larger gap between super car and the common man. So what is a regular, hard working guy to do when you don't have an extra 2 mil laying around? Build it yourself! That's just what ambitious 25-year-old Mike Duff of Florida did.
Mike started building his Bugatti replica from a 2002 Mercury Cougar Coupe. He used fiberglass and composite material to recreate the Veyron's unique build, finishing it with a professional paint job. He then took the cougar's interior and covered it with genuine leather, completing the project in 9 months.
Of course the Mercury Cougar engine remains intact, so this machine will not be putting out 1,000 HP like the real Bugatti. Duff currently has the replica for sale at $89,000 - roughly 1/10th the price of the real Veyron. So yeah, it's not the real thing so we hope the purist crowd doesn't get they're panties in a bunch. But for the baller on a budget, this might just be right up your alley.
