Many of us, if not all, would like to buy a supercar, but not everyone can afford such a purchase. While some motorists continue to just dream, others make cool cars out of rather modest ones with their own hands. A variety of workshops that are ready to put such a conversion on stream do not stand aside either. However, there is one “but”. The resulting replicas are similar to the originals except in appearance, and even then not always: it is impossible to turn a budget model into an oil car, and a sedan into a mid-engined coupe.
1. From the fifth-generation Hyundai Elantra sedan, a not too plausible copy of the Lamborghini was made.
The car with a dark gray matte body has acquired new bumpers, an Italian brand logo, side skirts, two-tone wheels, “air intakes” in the rear doors, and darkened lights.
The result leaves much to be desired: the car only vaguely resembles the original supercar. There are no pictures of the interior.
2. A resident of the Netherlands turned a 1990 Toyota Supra into a kind of Lamborghini Reventon.
The coupe was equipped with an impressive body kit and bumpers in the style of an Italian supercar, and the body was painted gray.
It turned out not too similar: the proportions of the two models are completely different. The interior and appliances are standard. The three-liter 238-horsepower V6 is combined with “mechanics”.
3. The Hyundai Accent of the second generation, released in 2009, was made similar to the Ford Mustang of the 1969 model.
To do this, the Indians created a new body from scratch. If three-quarters of the back copy resembles the original, then the front seems unsightly.
The steering wheel, dashboard, and center console are standard, but the front panel has been changed. We are ready to put the work on stream: the alteration costs 800 thousand rupees without taking into account the cost of the original sedan.
4. Earlier, the same team tried to turn an old Honda Civic into a Lamborghini Aventador SVJ.
The work took 25 days. The car received a new body and interior. The elements of the appearance are made from scratch, and a diffuser with an imitation of a “fiery” exhaust appeared in the back.
The cabin has a new steering wheel, front panel, and center console. From the source, only the devices remained.
5. The Toyota MR2 was turned into a fairly realistic copy of the Ferrari 360.
It is not easy to determine the donor: the developers created an aerodynamic body kit in the style of an Italian supercar, similarly brought out mufflers, added five-spoke wheels, and even installed real lighting equipment from Ferrari.
The interior has also been seriously redesigned: new appliances, a three-spoke steering wheel, and other details have appeared here.
6. The same model inspired the developers of a rally car for the Spanish Ya-Car team.
The creators used a spatial frame and two engines from Suzuki motorcycles of approximately 200 horsepower each.
The drive is full, and the suspension has impressive moves. The body is taken from the Ferrari 360 Modena, but the rear wing is different, and the windows are special.
7. From the Porsche 924, they tried to make a copy of the Ferrari Testarossa.
The 1978 coupe retained the regular two-liter 125-horsepower engine, and the five-speed manual transmission was taken from the Porsche Carrera Turbo.
A couple of years ago, a car with a claimed mileage of 78,000 kilometers was sold for 14,900 euros.
8. The Acura NSX has been turned into an artful replica of the Lamborghini Diablo GT.
The project is named 1991 ASPT: the number is the year of manufacture of the Japanese car, and the abbreviation means “assembled in parts”.
The car received new body parts — real Italian or created according to the original drawings but adapted to the NSX. The creation was estimated at 175 thousand dollars.
9. Inexpensive sports car Pontiac GTO 2004 made similar to Bugatti Veyron.
At the same time, even the legendary LS1 V8 engine is not equal to the W16 engine with four turbines installed on a French Hypercar.
In the spring, a car called Veywrong was estimated at 150 thousand dollars: it’s much cheaper than the original Veyron but very expensive for a homemade one.
