Audi R8 Replica

On the short list of cars I'd like to own is the Audi R8. Great looks, spectacular performance and brilliant engineering make it one of the world's most desirable cars.

Unfortunately, a quick glance at my checking account balance tells me that I won't be getting one anytime soon.

Apparently this guy came to the same conclusion, but he did something about it. He built an R8 replica based on a Mercury Cougar!

A real R8 tops $100,000.00. This guy built his for around $50,000.00

OK, I don't like replica cars and this one hasn't changed that opinion. For $50,000.00 what does this guy have? A Mercury Cougar that looks similar to an Audi R8.

I have to give the guy credit for all the time, money and effort he went through.
To each his own, I guess.
