Default Veyron WANNABE??

Hi guys,

Does any of you know what this is? It looks like a veyron 'wannabe' by DC to me. Took these pics with my cell phone in night mode near wankhede stadium at 3 am while on a ride. I apologize for the quality. Does anyone know the specs? The links to the pics are below

was it the body of an esteem and the engine of an MR2 or both body and engine of the MR2. i thought i had read somewhere that is was on the body of the esteem and the MR2 engine. i know his son has a junked MR2 turbo with most of the engine parts missing. had even asked him to sell it to me.
