Replica cars information with articles and pictures about custom replica cars that have been completed for tuning enthusiasts.
With the Porsche 911 history now five decades deep, it’s amazing how the company has kept the styling so similar when comparing a 911 of today. German-based tuner DP Motorsports has celebrated the 40th birthday of the notorious model by transforming a 1990′s Porsche 964 into a 1973 Porsche 911 Carrera RS replica. From new school to old school, both the exterior, interior and engine bay received a wide range of aftermarket parts in the build.
Here is a great example of what a replica builder can accomplish when things are done the correct way. This Ferrari Enzo replica was recently listed on eBay and is located in Germany with a current bid around 40,000 Euro. With only 3 days left before the auction ends, we are sure the price will climb since it can easily fool the innocent bystander. Even the dimensions nearly match up to the original Ferrari Enzo being 4,700mm long, 2,030mm wide, 1,140mm tall and sporting a 2,650mm wheelbase.
Here is a unique Toyota MR2 that has been transformed into a Lamborghini Murcielago replica. In the past we have seen this car try to replicate models such as the Ferrari 460 Modeno Spider and Ferrari F430 Spider, however a larger Lamborghini proved to be much more difficult. This was a project from Bulgaria and is based on a second generation 1992 Toyota MR-2.
Check out this Mitsubishi Eclipse coupe that has been transformed into a Lamborghini Reventon replica. It comes from the Ukrainian city of Odessa and was built by a 30 year old named Alexander with some help from family and friends. It all started back in 2010 with a third generation 2003 Mitsubishi Eclipse and took over two years to complete. We have several pictures of the Lamborghini Reventon replica build below, and while it isn’t an exact clone, the final product has been able to win several trophies at car shows for its uniqueness.
The people of New York along with all the tourists that frequently roam the streets were in for a treat the other day. On a trip through Times Square people spotted some rare cars and even a Batmobile replica. This comes shortly after the Colorado shooting for the new Dark Knight film which we are very sorry for the event that occurred that evening. Meanwhile, spectators in New York were able to feast their eyes on a new Lamborghini Aventador LP700-4 that was wrapped in chrome and is most likely the first of its kind.
Here is an accurate Bentley Continental GT replica based on a Chrysler Sebring. If only the interior was completed then it would be almost impossible to tell the difference. The exterior looks identical and the attention to detail with the body lines is near perfect. With the use of OEM Bentley Continental headlights, tailights, exhaust tips and emblems, it will surely trick the average bystander.
Check out this Ferrari F430 replica kit that has been built on a Toyota Celica. When planning to build a replica, the first car the comes to mind is the Pontiac Fiero to use as the donor car. Simply because it was a mid-engine sports car that has a similar wheel base as some of the exotics today. However, occasionally you will find tuners finding new ways to construct the car of their dreams, like this Toyota Celica Ferrari F430 kit.
Most Toyota Supra owners spend their time tricking out the 2JZ-GTE engine to hit the 1,000 horsepower milestone, however the British owner of this car decided to turn it into a replica of an Aston Martin DBS sports car. We guess he was a big fan of the James Bond movie, Quantum of Solace, since that car was constantly in the spotlight. With the low resolution pictures from the eBay UK auction it’s hard to tell how good the quality of the body is, yet it looks like it could fool the average bystander.
These replica car makers are getting pretty good at what they do these days, just check out this McLaren F1 replica. While it doesn’t hold the same power as the original supercar, this one was constructed around an Audi V6 30v engine that most likely produces around 190 to 250 HP depending on the displacement. While the seller did not disclose all the specifications about the car, you can try to get your hands on this for about 150,000 Polish Zlotych, Euro €35,000 or US $45,000.
Check out this black and yellow Honda Civic sporting some Bugatti Veyron styling in a parking lot. For this 1992-1995 model it looks as if the only major modification was the front bumper, side skirts, and custom rear quarter panels. Headlights look to be aftermarket but still have the same factory shape to them.
Most people on this site would kill to own a Bugatti Veyron, but when reality sets in, it’s just not going to happen. That’s when the Bugatti Veyron replica car builders come to play, and this two million dollar Bugatti Veyron now has a cheap price tag. Well not exactly cheap at 89,000 USD, but a fraction of what it would cost to own a real Bugatti Veyron. This replica car was built on a 2002 Mercury Cougar with a V6 and automatic transmission. Only major problem I see is the car having 112,000 miles! It will probably need a new engine swap and suspension soon, however a potential new owner will have the body work, 20-inch wheels, angel eye HID headlights, LED taillights, functional gas cap, and power windows with working mirrors. The eBay seller says the interior is still in progress but very close to being ready for upholstery. We’ll keep our eye on this one and see how it turns out. You can check the listing here.
This Bentley replica doesn’t look half bad, based off a Chrysler Sebring, which seems like a decent car for building a replica of a Continental GTC. It’s definitely better than the old Pontiac Fiero’s people are using to build Ferrari and Lamborghini replicas. Was listed on eBay and the auction has already ended, with no bids unfortunately, so we’re not sure if it will ever be completed. However, for the money, this Bentley replica seems like a good car investment if someone can finish it to look exactly like the real deal. The seller claims that he will be finishing the carpet, adding a new windscreen, door mirrors, and a custom dual exhaust with real Bentley tips. Pictures also show authentic Bentley interior pieces, but a dashboard will need to be custom made to fit these. Then it will need the seats upholstered, a new convertible top, sound system, and navigation to make it look 100% genuine.
