Bugatti Veyron-bodied Mercury Cougar
Normally, a Mercury Cougar would never be mistaken for a Bugatti Veyron. One is a mainstream coupe that has been consigned to the dustbin of history, the other is a supercar that rings the cash register for about $2 million when new.
Well, one enterprising Cougar owner in Palm Bay, Florida has found a way to make his Cougar look like a Veyron to folks passing by. He fabricated a home-built body kit to give his Cougar that Veyron style.
He used a one-inch tubular steel frame that was grafted onto the Cougar in conjunction with plenty of composite and fiberglass to create the Veyron body and painted it Ferrari red and black, which is a color combo available on the real thing. He also added 20-inch wheels.
Beyond that, the car is a stock 2002 Mercury Cougar, complete with a 2.5-liter V-6. Oh, and there's 120,000 miles on the clock.
What we have here is the automotive equivalent of a Halloween costume. A very frightening one.
