How To: DIY $60k Fake Bugatti Veyron
Here’s a thing of beauty and a joy to behold. If you’ve always wanted a Bugatti Veyron but had a problem with the million-dollar-plus pricetag, eBay has the answer for you … as long as you don’t mind cutting a few corners. $60,000 US dollars will turn a 2001 Ford Mercury Cougar - a wonderful automobile in its own right - into this. (Batteries not included. Some assembly is required.)

"You will stop traffic wherever you go!!!"
