Man Flogs MG-Come-Bugatti On eBay After Doing Some Serious Modifications

Man Flogs MG-Come-Bugatti On eBay After Doing Some Serious Modifications

It's one of the world's ultimate sportscars.

The Bugatti Veyron can do 0-60mph in 2.3 seconds, has a top speed of 253mph, only 450 were ever made, and it was previously named 'Car Of The Decade' by BBC's Top Gear.

To buy one new from its German manufacturing base, as part of the Volkswagen Group, would set you back $1.7m (£1.32m).

But, how about owning one for £625 ($1,000)? An opportunity not be sniffed at.

One man has created his own Bugatti kit car and has flogged it on eBay for 0.0006 percent of the cost of the real deal.

If it's just for show, who's going to know?

The man has clearly spent a lot of time renovating the original car - an old MG F - with each new panel perfectly crafted and smooth.

All it needs now is a little extra paintwork.

It's only when you look inside that you can see that it's not perhaps as luxurious as the slick interior of a Bugatti.

The 2000 original model has 47,000 miles on the clock, has a petrol engine, and is right-hand drive.

Of course, you'll have to inform your insurer that the original has had some 'bodywork modifications' done to it.

A Bugatti costs, on average, around $50,000 to insure (£38,000), but when LADbible ran a check for a modified MG F, the insurance was considerably cheaper at £2,500 per year ($3,200).

The listing has now been removed from eBay, with the owner having seemingly sold it.

The winning bidder was unknown, but they could have lived as far away as Australia - particularly as the eBay listing clearly states that the seller was willing to 'post' it there.

You just hope they read the description properly and that they aren't currently celebrating a cut-price Veyron.

One mum made that error herself when ordering some kitchenware - it's fair to say Melissa Seaman was left red-faced by her purchase when it arrived.
