1993 kit car is a Bentley NOT

Todays Stupid Vehicle trophy goes to this car! It is a 1993 I don’t know what, but it is making an attempt to be a convertible Bentley which it actually does not do such a bad job if you really squint when looking at the photos.

Parking the car outside a nice house is a nice touch, almost fooled me until I saw the bright red interior and 4wd ride height.

Copying Bentley’s seems to be a pretty popular kit car these days and no one has actually gotten it right. The outside needs to match the interior, in this case the interior looks like hell and the exterior is close to looking okish.

Ferrari F430 Replica on Ebay

So you have yourself a Peugeot 406 coupe, but you really love Ferrari’s. So what do you do, buy a Ferrari? HELL NO! You build yourself one using your Peugeot as the base for it (great idea right?).

Wrong! This is one of the worst finished replica cars I have ever come across. Everything is done in a half assed manner.

The scariest part about this ebay find is that there are actually two bidders on it so far and the price is already a staggering £7,500.00!

So get in quick if you are after a seriously overpriced rice box!

Replica 1994 Ferrari 512M

Whilst I have never ever been much of a fan of replica or kit cars, I am especially adverse to the point of building a replica ferrari that for one looks nothing like it and seconds looks absolutely nothing like it!

Imagine how many hours were spent building this car and then they go and finish it off wit han interior like this :

The finish is appalling at best, why why why? It is not a good look, no one would ever mistake this as a Ferrari 512M, it looks like a whole heap of fibre glass panels have been mismatched together to form an ugly ass car.

Acura Wants to be a Porsche or Mercedes

So what exactly do you end up with when you combine an Acura/Honda, BMW, Porsche, Nissan, Lexus, and Mercedes-Benz? You get this hideous POS… this actually started its life out as an Acura Integra. The listing is an absolute hoot, and the car is, well, something! It does require eye bleach, so go grab a bottle, and then come back and take a look for yourself.

From the listing :

Assembly:

-1994 Acura Integra Frame

-Porsche Front End

-Porsche Headlights

-1.8L Honda B18 Motor

-Nissan 350Z Exhaust System

-Mercedes Kompressor Trunk

-5speed Manual Transmission

-Custom Fabricated Body

Specs:

-Tight Suspension

-200HP Engine

-Light Weight Vehicle for added acceleration & speed about 2300lbs

-Brand New Interior Floor

-40K Headlights

Extras:

1)Underground LEDS(multiple settings)

2)Air/Fuel & Battery Meters(attached but not wired)

4)Sony Eclipse Interior Speakers

5)Memphis 1000 Watt Amp

6)Two 10″ Memphis Bass Speakers in a Kicker Box

7)Light Up Battery Meter Under Hood

8)17″ Montegi Rims

This is all around an awesome car, it belongs to a buddy of mine and is being sold on consignment. I have been in this vehicle many times and can say it is a unique fun to drive car, it’s fast, has great breaks, real head turner, has won at multiple car shows and will continue to do so. The engine and transmission run great with no problems whatsoever. The sound system is phenomenal but if you are the winning bidder and do not want the system I will keep it for $500 off of the price.


Some Minor Issues:

The body of the vehicle sits low to the ground and has a very nice look to it but is not a body kit; as previously mentioned it is custom fabricated and has some stress cracks here and there nothing big but it is worth knowing. The interior is really nice looking with the orange leather but could look a lot better with just a little more effort. Also the wiring on this vehicle gets a little messy here and there, the trunk for example has exposed wires and lights which as is need to be left as they are. Also the drivers front headlight sits just a half inch off, again just another small detail that could be addressed by the new owner or left as is.

WTF are some people thinking?

I really wonder what in the hell is wrong with some people. Check out this abomination of a car (ebay listing here ).

They must have spent a butt load of money and time in creating this ummm wannabe ?

What was the point? Why not pump that time and effort into making something UNIQUE or get the real thing?

I do not see the point of this at all.

Also if you could let me know what this started out life as, i’d appreciate it.

Super-Fast Sinclair C5

The Sinclair C5, a battery electric vehicle invented in the 80’s that suffered a public relations disaster when it debuted, was meant to be the beginning of eco-friendly personal transport. It didn’t exactly take off, but an enthusiast named Richard Hammonds decided to equip his very own C5 with a JFS100 jet engine, making it infinitely faster but less than environmentally friendly. It can get up to 100mph on a smooth surface and is described by Hammonds as being “very noisy and very dangerous”.
