Homemade Bugatti Made Completely From Scratch – Better Than the Real Thing?

When we really stop and think about it, it’s kind of interesting to ponder how exactly a brand like Bugatti has gotten to the place where it has. We’re sure that every automaker who has ever produced a vehicle probably wants to sell their product for seven figures like Bugatti manages to.
However, there’s something special about the French automaker that has drawn in the attention of the masses and convinced them to drop something comparable to several mortgages on a single car. These beauties aren’t mass produced but it seems like the hypercar brand that everybody knows about and kind of looks up to as one of those on the Mount Rushmore of performance machines. Even the most casual of enthusiasts is familiar with something like the Bugatti Veyron and most regard it quite highly.
So what is it that allows these machines to go out there and fetch the millions of dollars that they do? Well, when we really break it down, there are a variety of factors not limited to amazing performance and added exclusivity. The story goes far beyond that.
This time, however, we check out one particular model that really strives with its exclusivity. In fact, with a Bugatti Vision Gran Turismo, the one-off nature means that there are no others like the single example that does exist. Therefore, even if you had all of the money in the world, it’s feasible to think that you might not be able to buy one of these things. Let’s be honest with ourselves, too, most people don’t have the estimated $5-million-plus asking price that it costs to bring the machine home let alone the $93,000 that it would cost to put on an extra set of tires purchased with the machine among other five-figure maintenance items.
However, for one group of enthusiasts who had a full head of steam and a lot of encouragement, they put together their very own Bugatti. This isn’t just something as simple as assembling a kit car but instead, we seem to watch a car being built entirely from scratch. From the frame to the fiberglass panels and everything in between, the machine is built right in front of our eyes.
By following along with the video below, we’re able to watch the faux-Bugatti come together to resemble the Vision Gran Turismo that it was built to replicate. While this might not pass as an exact duplicate, we would think that this thing would be able to fool quite the number of bystanders. Even those who aren’t quite fooled into thinking that it’s a real Bugatti probably would be rather impressed by the quality of this interesting replica.
