We're glad to see that Mercury vehicles are continuing to make themselves useful even after the brand's demise. One enterprising soul in Palm Bay, Florida took it upon himself to craft another 2002 Mercury Cougar into the image of a Bugatti Veyron. The project took Mike Duff around nine months to complete, including all of the exterior body work and slathering the interior with leather. Outside, the body is stitched from plenty of fiberglass and composites on a steel tube frame, and the finished product looks pretty similar to a legitimate Veryon.

Unfortunately, the vehicle's drivetrain won't be setting any world records anytime soon; the car still uses the same beating heart as the 2002 Cougar. The 2.5-liter V6 is good for 170 ponies - a far cry from the nearly 1,000 horsepower available from the legendary W16 in the Veyron.

There are a few plusses, however. For one, Duff's creation can seat four people comfortably, and we're guessing it costs significantly less to own and operate. Speaking of price tags, this faux-Bugatti can be yours for the princely sum of $89,000. Check it out on eBay Motors.eBay Find of the Day: Mercury Cougar-turned-Veyron replica for $89K originally appeared on Autoblog on Wed, 20 Jul 2011 07:59:00 EST.

i dont understand that....how do you have a car that looks that fast but can be passed by a group of olympic wheelchair riders. And for $89k...complete fail. I would just rather buy a GTR or a porsche 911 or a BMW M3 or M5....this is complete fail and no one can argue with me on that.

You still failed brother....and should smack yourself repeatedly until either that "idea" falls out your head or your hand hurts
