seems like quite a waste of money and not to mention spoiling a reliable corolla.Good replicas are those that poses the same specifications but are in fact replicas due to limited production example Porsche 550 spyders.Whoever thinks the same please thumbs up

Agree with your sentiments on the real meaning of "replicas" but they need not necessarily be made due to the sole reason limited production. They are made to fulfill the dreams of car lovers who cannot actually afford the real thing & specially the upkeep of such cars.

Have seen a conversion of a Porsche Boxter to a Carrera GT. Now, here, the replica looks & feels like a Porsche inside out as the donor car itself is a second hand Porsche. Not necessarily cheap, but a true replica in a sense.

Almost had me fooled when I spotted this car a few days back. From the rear it really looks like a Ferrari F430 Coupe. Did not get to have a close look at the car - but from far - anyone would mistake this car for a Ferrari. Excellent execution.

BTW - How much do these replica kits cost? And what is involved in fitting these kits on any car? I am sure mounting points are different for all cars - so these kits are definitely not universal ones.

The car is now back at Executive Car Mods office at Seepz and has been lying outside the gates gathering dust.

The black 430 not an original - its a 430 replica based on a Toyota Corolla. More pics here :

Edit : This maybe a different replica or has changed plates.

This car is a replica for sure. Please do see the Ground Clearance and also the missing Ferrari badges. It could be the Corolla based replica or an entire new one.
