PostSubject: Bugatti Veyron? Would you drive it? on Ebay today for 89,000.00   Sat Jul 16, 2011 12:35 am

We don't know anyone who wouldn't love to see a Bugatti Veryron parked in their driveway. We also don't know many people willing and/or able to fork out the doe ($1.3 million for a 2011 model). But, just like the bags on the arms of fashionistas in the Upper East Side, not every car has to be authentic.

In an effort to make the tantalizing style of the Bugatti Veyron more attainable, one car kit maker has developed a make-it-yourself Veyron look-a-like. Truth be told, underneath the sexy swoops and curves lays a 2002 Mercury Cougar V6. Though, you'd never know it from looking at it. It truly is a visual success.

As far as power is concerned, the Mercury Cougar Bugatti Veyron knockoff - known as the "Cougati" - is not nearly as powerful as the real deal. With front-wheel drive, and a 2.5-liter V6 engine, it gets 168 bph. This is hardly the stuff 200 mph is made of. But, it's more kick than most cars can offer... in a beautiful shell...at a fraction of the cost. The starting bid for this item on one of today's most popular auction sites (you know the one) was $89,000. Compared to $1.3 million, that's a pretty good deal. But, is it worth it? That boils down to how much of a purist you are.

This is the nicest rebody car you will find at this time and look as hard as you like but you will not find another one that looks even close to this one. This car looks like a million dollars all day long. The paint job is base / clear, sanded and buffed to a show car shine. Ferrari red and black combo. The body is made of composite and fiberglass with a one inch tubular steel frame glassed into it. This one inch tube frame is welded to the donor car which makes the entire thing solid as a rock! This car is actually a 2002 mercury cougar two door sport coupe. The car has a nice reliable 2.5 L V6 motor and Ice cold AC. Its easy to maintain and cost affordable. I feel these are some of the most important things for sure. There are custom wheels and tires installed, 20 inch staggered. This car drives very smooth with the 20 inch wheels. I get so many questions asking how fast is the car. My best reply is fast enough. It is not a rocket ship, If you are a motor head you can install a larger motor, but I do not do that kind of work. This car is a stock 2002 mercury cougar, Stock wheel base, Stock motor and automatic transmission, Stock power windows and locks, stock wiring, stock guages, stock AC controls under these nice fancy looking aluminum trim parts. The seats are even modified stock cougar parts as well, Just everything has been recovered in a real leather, Leather seats, Leather headliner, Leather trim on the carpet, Leather Dash. Another nice bonus about this car is the rear seating area, Not large by any means, however if you have a kid or two, they will enjoy riding around in this beast. The rear seats fold down to expose a small storage area behind the seats. There is also another storage area in the very rear of the car. The exhaust exits through the large single tip which produces a nice tone. Check out the fit of the door windows to the body with the rubber molding, This factory look completes the package. Call with any questions, Or email is good also. Window shoppers please do not call and waste my time, Just enjoy the pictures and keep shopping!


This is a great car! Its fun to drive and turns heads more then you can imagine! I could even be a great daily driver.

Yikes....I don't know about this one. I'd have to say I'd pass. When mini vans blow your doors off, you'll feel pretty silly.

I don't know. I still think it would be awesome to own. Since it is built off of a Cougar, there have got to be aftermarket turbo kits to boost performance. I'm not saying it will be a speed demon, but you shouldn't have to worry about the mini vans!
