What Do You Make of This Bungled Up BMW 540i E39?


Read more

Some said Chris Bangle's bubble-butted and droopy-eyed BMW 7-Series E65 would age like a fine bottle of wine and win us over in the years to come. Hmm… I'm still not seeing that 13 years later; perhaps we need another decade or so to appreciate the design?

Read more

It ain't easy being a clone, especially of a supermodel of the auto world, the Bugatti Veyron, so you may want to take it easy on this one, even though the seller is virtually asking for it…

Chrysler Sebring Cross-Dressed as Bentley Continental GT Convertible


Read more

Every year, dozens of Sebring convertibles are sacrificed on the altar known as the aftermarket industry, all in the name of Bentley and the replica world that has found a new star child in Chrysler's unloved bar of soap drop-top.

China's Landwind Pulls a Range Rover Evoque Clone Out of its Hat


Read more

If, as they say, imitation is a sincere form of flattery, then the folks over at Land Rover must be blushing from the adoration of China's Landwind, or rather, Land Wind, judging by their newly designed company insignia adorning the edge of the hood of the upcoming X7 Breeze SUV.

Nissan 350Z Thinks it's Related to the Audi R8 and Lamborghini Reventon


Read more

It's not one of the most beautiful designs in the automotive world, but the Nissan 350Z (made from 2002 through 2008 in coupe guise) is arguably one of the better looking and perhaps more importantly, distinctly styled sports cars of our times, which kind of makes you wonder why anyone would proceed with the changes you see in the example pictured above.

Boo BAIC for Resorting to Copying the Mercedes G-Wagen!


Read more

Behold the magnificence of the Beijing Auto or BAIC BJ80. It is proof that China still thinks the world isn’t looking…but it is. It’s not hard to see it’s a blatant rip-off of the Mercedes G-Wagen, with a kind of Jeep/Hummer grille grafted on, along with slightly altered Land Rover Defender headlight assemblies.

New Chinese Carmaker Kawei Starts Off on Wrong Foot with Ford F-150 Clone


Read more

Looking back three years, we see how much the domestic Chinese automotive sector has evolved, up to the point where the rest of the world almost needs to take it seriously…

No Joke, This Porsche Cayenne Thinks it's a Ferrari


Read more

If Ferrari sticks to its word and doesn’t bring an SUV to the world, this rebadged Porsche Cayenne found on eBay UK may remain the closest thing to a crossover from Maranello.

Mitsubishi 3000GT Has Plastic Surgery to Supposedly Replicate Ferrari F430 Looks


Read more

You can add this eBay find to our ever-growing file of Ferrari clones, or rather, wannabe doubles, because just like the two previous Mitsubishi 3000GT-based Ferrari F430-replicas that we showed you in the not so distant past, the plastic surgery leaves plenty be desired when it comes to its Ferrari likeness– and that's being kind.

Read more

If you've set your heart on obtaining a Veyron, you now have the added option of Bugatti's newly launched Certified Pre-Owned Program, but if your weekly paycheck and bank account disagree, you could always fool your inner cravings with a replica.

Japanese Stud or German Dud? Nissan Silvia S15 with BMW 3-Series Face Transplant


Read more

Playing God with the styling DNA of cars is nothing new, with results usually varying from WTF, like this Ford Mustang-faced and Nissan Skyline-assed BMW 7-Series to head-scratchers of the Subaru-BMW-Audi and Nissan 370Z-Porsche Panamera blending kind.

Chinese Grandpa Creates Mini Electric Lamborghini for his Grandson [w/Video]


Read more

How cool is that? A Chinese grandfather wanted to drive his young grandson to school in something better than a bike or trike, so he took to his home garage and built a mini-sized, Lamborghini roadster replica powered by batteries from scrap pieces and a lot of love and personal labor.

Making a W221 out of a W140 Mercedes-Benz S-Class


Read more

It's funny how perception works. Most people consider the W140-codenamed Mercedes-Benz S-Class from the 1990s as the behemoth of the series, but did you know that it's actually smaller in every dimension than the new W222 S-Class? Imagine that…

Racing Fan Builds Ferrari F1 Replica for the Road for $4,300 [w/Video]


Read more

It won't G-force your back onto the seat nor will it tingle your spine with a screeching sound of a V8 engine turning at 10,000rpm, and if you name starts with Usain and ends in Bolt, you could probably outrun it in a street race, but damn; this is an impressively cool build for a car that was created in a small island shop in the Bali Sea purely from the love and passion for F1.

Poor Nissan 300ZX Living the Drag Life of a Ferrari F512 M


Read more

If you ask me, the third and last iteration of the Ferrari Testarossa, the F512 M produced in just 500 units from 1994 through 1996, is one of the most tasteless styling jobs to come out of Maranello in the brand's modern history; it’s as if some number-cruncher took the 1980s Testarossa and said, "hey, how about we screw on these leftover parts and give it a 1990s groove?".

Lister Begins Taking Order for Revived Knobbly


Read more

If you’re into British racing cars and their proud heritage, then you must have heard of Lister, a racecar builder with a long history of making successful cars, the most recent of which being the not-so-successful Storm LMP, the final incarnation of which entered 14 races but failed to do anything notable.

Chevy El Camino Escalade is One Confused Ride


Read more

We're not so sure if the term cross breeding can be applied on cars, but it does seem suitable to describe what's going on with this ride we found for sale on eBay. The car is listed as a "1985 Chevrolet El Camino/Cadillac Customized Collector's Edition".

Polish Man Builds McLaren F1 Replica with BMW V12 Out of Scrap and Spare Parts for $32k!


Read more

If you’re a Carscoops regular, you may remember a story from 2009 about a car fanatic from Poland who was working on a McLaren F1 replica.

Well, after eight years of work (!), the car is finally completed with 48-year-old amateur mechanic Jacek Mazur spending £20,000 ($32,862) on spare parts and materials to build the car. Reportedly, it is capable of going up to 200 mph (322 km/h), but we'd advise you to take the last number with a bucket-load of salt.
