Man Convincingly Mods $2,000 Mercury Cougar Into $2Million Bugatti Veyron Lookalike

Mike Duke, who might have the simplest name ever, modded his late-model Mercury Cougar (which I used to own back in 2001 before sliding it off an icy road, wrapping it around a couple trees and winding up in the ICU for 11 days) into a Bugatti Veyron. Basically by fabricating a giant body kit. Now I know what you're thinking, and it's true: you almost lost your Geekologie Writer before you even knew him.

Petrolhead Mike Duke, 25, spent nine months transforming his Ford Cougar into a red and black imitation of the 1,000bhp motor.


A specially-designed bodykit makes it indistinguishable from a £1million Veyron and the interior has been re-styled and covered in leather.

But the engine is the Cougar's standard 2.5 litre V6 model, meaning its power falls well short of the 1,000bhp developed by the Veyron's 8-litre powerplant.

This means 0-62mph in 8.2 seconds and a top speed of 140mph - a way off the Veyron's 2.5 seconds and 253mph.

Why? Why do single men do anything -- to trick women into coming home with them.

"This apartment is dingy."
It's a safehouse baby, I'm hiding out.
"Driving that sports car?"
I'm a spy, and spy's drive fancy cars.
"Who are you?"

    90% of this posts is about people cussing each other out/calling each other names and not about the car and the topic at hand...SMH

  • kneesus

    That's every disqus comment board for any article. But, every now and again, somebody says something so intelligent, crazy, or stupid it makes me laugh. And that's why I'm addicted.

    If you need a car to get laid you have no game.

  • Stephanie Fameli

    Ooooh my God these comments are funny... lol It's juuust an article about a car. No reason to pull each other's hair out. No one gets heated like that in real life over an article about a car.

  • Samel Thy

    why ya so funny??? first of all, go ahead and go 200 mph in the USA, if you can, and then make sure you put a cover over the car when you park it. So.... do you want a car to race or drive??? there's your 40,000 bucks. I'll be the retard with 40 more grand in my pocket. I can live with that. And a nice car to drive, by the way....

Wish you were in my 9th grade English class to set ppl straight about your vs you're... ah shit you didn't even do that... are you going to rat me out for using "ppl" instead of people? Get a life, like I need too lol.
