Tavarish’s post today of the Bugatti Cougar left me to wonder: would you ever buy a replica car?

Obviously the fit and finish will be mediocre at best, but would you be willing to give that up so it looks like you own a particularly luxurious or exotic automobile? Are you buying this replica car to impress others, or just so you can act you have such a special vehicle?


With the Mercury Veyron, you also need to consider that you can buy new, impressive, legit car for the roughly $60,000 price.

So be genuineous, or fake it ‘til you make it? I’m honestly curious . . .
