Man builds Bugatti Veyron replica, by hand!

I'm sure you would have read the news of this guy in the US who built a Bugatti Veyron replica by hand, by recrafting his Mecury Cougar coupe.

(In case you don't know what a Mercury Cougar is, here's a picture)

Now, while tastes can be questioned, you have to admire his effort. Apparently, the man behind the project, Mike Duff, took nine months to completely reshape his car, from a dull American coupe, into an exotic French supercar. Well, at least in looks anyway.

Under the bonnet, the car is still a wheezy 2.5-litre V6 with 170bhp, or less than 20% of the Veyron's 1000bhp.

However, the converted 'Veyron' can actually sit four. And guess what, it can be yours!

The car is available for sale on eBay, and if you have US$79,000 lying around, and somewhere in the US to keep it, this unique creation is up for grabs.

Any takers?
