Not many people can afford the car of their dreams, but what is there to do about it? The sensible types will probably push it to the back of their minds. After all, there are far more important things to worry about. And then there are those who are so obsessed with cars, they’ll sell everything and live in a cave, just so they can scrape together enough money for the right ride.
But then there’s a third way to buy or build something that looks like the car your heart desires yet costs considerably less. It is in the form of a replica. Unfortunately, some replicas can cost a whole lot, which is why there are so many stinkers out there. If you don’t believe that, here are 10 of the worst replica cars ever.
1. Bugatti Veyron
The Veyron is a thing of legend, and to be fair, this Suzuki Esteem-based replica could become a legend in its own right. However, perhaps not for the reasons, its creator would have wanted. The thing is, if you saw this car, would you even know what it’s actually supposed to be? This replica was a complete fail.
2. Porsche Who Knows What?
Sometimes the detractors say that the Porsche 911 is really a fast VW Beetle. So, it makes sense to use the VW as the starting point for a replica. Well, not, in this case, it doesn’t. Unfortunately, the end result doesn’t know if it’s trying to be a 356 Speedster, a 959, or anything else for that matter.
