This Kit Car Looks Like A 1930’s Bugatti And Costs Almost $70k

Dubbed the Siero Seco, this bespoke creation belongs to Sean Santarsiero, who looked at the Type 57 Bugatti and decided he wanted one.

Of course, there’s no Bugatti DNA to be had here. It’s mostly a custom chassis powered by a 2.3-liter Mercury Capri V6 that’s mated to an automatic transmission.

Other features include front wheel drive, a real UV-resistant leather interior, and a Royal Blue exterior highlighted by a custom aluminum grille. In terms of aesthetics, the creator was clearly inspired by the Bugatti Type 57 SC Corsica Roadster. Unlike the Corsica, though, it has slightly lower ground clearance and much bigger pontoon fenders, although to his credit, the seller never states that this is supposed to be a faithful Bugatti replica in the eBay ad.

Now, if you’re a fan, spending the $69,500 might seem like a bargain, since a genuine Type 57 Bugatti will set you back millions of dollars.


  • This is fantastic. I love it. So much better than an original. Those are museum pieces. This is a real driver’s car, with stunning looks.

  • Six Thousand Times

    The seats are an obvious tell but otherwise it’s pretty well executed. You could fool most of the people a lot of the time.

  • Bash

    I absolutely approve it. unfortunately i can like/recommend the article only once.


    Not bad…but I would need to give it an 8-banger.Lose the skinny spoke rims for something that would at least appear to be center knock-off .Give it a slightly fatter tire profile with “gangster” whitewalls.Needs a more elegant shifter than that generic piece.The area supporting the headlights needs to be reshaped to a curvier finish where the inner panels meet the radiator .It looks like a make-do solution.And (most importantly) the rear needs to a be full boattail in the middle to match the gorgeous rear wheel pontoons.Other than’s perfect.

    The bodywork lacks the finesse of a Bugatti. There are too many straight cut lines and rough edges, just like a Chinese knock-off.

  • Status

    Never accept replicas. Always insist on the genuine article.
