    "look a like" Kit cars - ridiculous

    seriously, why would you want a car that has a vague resembelence to something exotic, but in reality is built around a knackered old MR2 /SIERRA/Metro, and even some one who knows very little about cars can see its a piss poor copy, usually made out of plastic.

    what sort of people buy these things?,or is it me just being a misery Ar*e.
    i refer you to the following examples...


    A4 Cabriolet 2.0T S line special edition

    Past motors
    -Fiat Coupe 20v Turbo
    -Peugeot 205 GTI
    -Vauxhall Nova SR

    Love the Ferrari, they couldn't even get the wheelarches to fit right over the Beetle (or whatever it's based on) chassis. It's no different to putting a whaletail on a Sierra 1.6 really just more extreme. What I don't understand is the really good ones, where it's almost impossible to tell. All that work and expense, for what?
    I'd rather take a Ferrari chassis and put a Metro body on it, now that would be fun.

    I have to admit that this one looks cool, and I'm sure the owner didn't need to spend the 150k+ to get an Ferrari F40, even though it isn't as quick as the real thing!

    It's just fraud IMO, says a lot about the owner.
