Mercury Cougar-Based Bugatti Veyron Kit Car Could be Yours for $89,000

Mercury Cougar-Based Bugatti Veyron Kit Car Could be Yours for $89,000

A Bugatti Veyron costs over $2 million, not exactly in the price range for the majority of people on this planet. So what happens when you really want to rock a Bugatti Veyron but can’t afford it? Convert your existing car to look like one, that’s how. This enthusiast in Palm Bay, Florida did exactly that, taking his ultra-dull Mercury Cougar and fabricating a whole new body onto it to resemble a Bugatti Veyron.

Based on the photos, we’re pretty darn impressed by the craftsmanship that went into the project, even if the idea is ridiculous. The builder states that a one-inch tubular steel-frame was glassed onto the Cougar along with plenty of composite and fiberglass to construct the Bugatti body. Along with the Veyron body conversion, the owner had it repainted in Ferrari red and black, with a two-tone scheme found on genuine Veyrons.

Other than the 20-inch staggered wheels, the rest of the car is stock. That means you’ll get to look the part of sporting a Bugatti, but miss out on the performance that the Veyron is notorious for. The stock Cougar 2.5L V6 is packing 120,000 miles too, so we hope whoever ends up buying it off eBay gets themselves a motor swap… maybe one from a Veyron? Nah, that would just be silly; who would want to do such a thing?

    Here is the article I was telling you about having a Bugatti for $80K made from a Cougar.

    Is it me or do most people not even think it is close to looking like one. Maybe idiot girls will think it is as someone tries to pick them up ? But is that a girl you’d really want ?

  • Joe Schmoe

    Hell yea!

    I saw this car last night in palm bay and it nearly had me fooled. Only thing I noticed was back seats and no bugatti badges (cause why would you take a badge like that off). Had everyone I worked with fooled to. I wouldn’t do it but it’s a job well done

    So for 90 grand I would have a Mercury Cougar? The thought of anyone actually buying this is mind boggling. Sure there is a lot of craftsmanship that went into this and although not exact, it is pretty damn good, don’t get me wrong. But for 90 grand you’ll be driving a Mercury Cougar. Nuff Said

    90k…never gonna get it. It has to be a perfect replica, including the interior. And the 2.5L has to go! Who wants a Bugatti with no power at all? Maybe a corvette engine with 500+ hp. If you did all that, maybe, and just maybe you can get someone to buy it for max 80K.
    But all this aside, its a great looking car and I would buy it for around 30K
