Default Replica Veyron starting under $25K with 24 cylinders!!!!

Source:Topspeed

The details are still a little hazy about this one, but the video does clearly show a replica of a Bugatti Veyron. A company called Supercar Replicas are making these imitation Veyrons using a menu that starts with $23,500 for a C5 Corvette reskin to $50,000 for a 24-cylinder replica car. Thatís right 24-cylinders. The company will mate two 12-cylinder BMW engines in series at the output shaft to create an engine with fifty percent more cylinders than a real Veyron.
There are still plenty of questions still left to answer. How many donor parts does the price include? Can two engines tied together at the output shaft be at all reliable? Is it safe, or will I die if I hit a Schwinn?
Then again, there is only one real question for thos interested in buying this car: how many women can I fool into thinking this is really a Veyron?

I've heard of other companies that make replica corvettes but never got into any trouble.

But still, many people are going to be fooled by that!

About a year and a half ago, a Co/people making fake Ferrari's got into serious trouble. This was shown on some news channel as well.

Website of the company is pretty useless. No pictures of the development process. No videos I can come across either. Fake...I'd have to say. To 'clone' cars of that spec is truly tough.

WELCOME TO SUPER REPLICAS HOME PAGE

I mean seriously, can you call a video like this professional?
