This Mitsubishi 3000GT Looks More Like A Bugatti Ve(r)ywrong

Not all of us can afford a Bugatti. That’s the way it’s supposed to be. Heck, most of us wouldn’t be able to afford to run one, even if someone else covered the initial, seven-figure purchase price.

So what’s a cash-strapped EB fan to do? Not this, that’s for sure.

What you’re looking at appears to be a Mitsubishi 3000GT modified to look like a Veyron. Modified poorly, we should say. And pretty beat up since it was, too.

Mitsubishi’s version of the Dodge Stealth, we suppose the 3000GT wasn’t as laughable a starting point for the job as some we’ve seen. It was actually pretty high-tech in its day, with a twin-turbo V6, all-wheel-drive, and four-wheel steering. Assuming, for a second, that this was the top-of-the-line VR-4 model, all it’d be missing is another ten cylinders. And an extra pair of turbos. And, like, four times the horsepower.

Okay, so a Veyron the GTO (as it was known in other markets) was not. And this one looks… well, a little worse for the wear, let’s say. “Champagne taste [for] beer money,” the image was labeled when shared via Reddit. Another commenter dubbed it the “Bugatti Veyrwrong,” and well, we’re in no position to disagree.

The bottom line, as has been affirmed time and time again, is that there’s no such thing as a cheap Bugatti. Just a cheap car that wants (or whose owners want it) to be a Bugatti.

We’d say it’d be better to put a Veyron scale model on the shelf and leave alone the car in the driveway. But then we wouldn’t have this bit of humor to enjoy, would we?

    That new grille enables the turbo to use more air…

    Normally I try to say “to each their own” and go on about my business. But in this situation I just can’t. I can’t. This is just…….wrong. I’ve seen cars masquerading as others and some of them actually looked really nice save a few minor details. This thing needs to go in the crusher and then burned afterwards.

    That poor 3000GT.
