This one deserves a thread.  :p

"Creepy Audi R8 Replica Built from Mercury Cougar"

Quote
Alberto Gavach Fuertes of Zaragoza, Spain, is flirting with a potential lawsuit from the Audi motor company. Who might he be, you ask? He is the guy who has built a replica of the Audi R8, and is hapy to sell it and possible future copies (of the copy) thereof for 40,000. Strange enough, the guy may actually have a few inquiries from potential buyers. Fake that it is, the ReplicaAudiR8 as it's called, is based on a 2001 Mercury Cougar. Who would have thought?

Narrower than the original, Alberto's creation does come surprisingly close to being a carbon copy; integrated intake vents from the upcoming R8 V10, a front quarter that, if photographed solo, would pass as R8 any day. The resemblance actually, is very eerie. Front end looks rather good, LED lights and everything, Audi four-rings slapped for good measure on the bonnet. The rear is notably higher, with no twin tailpipes to be seen. But then again R8 is a low-slung sports car and replicating it to that sort of level would require a great deal of suspension work.

As for the interior, Alberto needs to put in a bit more effort there; a steering wheel claiming "R8" and everything else screaming "Cougar" just won't do at this price level. So, good thoughts, bad thoughts?

That is disturbing.

It looks very different from the side.
