Fake Rolls-Royce Phantom Based on a Lada Doesn't Even Try

There are certain replicas out there that could trick aficionados into believing they are the real thing. However, the faux Rolls-Royce Phantom we're here to show you isn't one of them.

Heck, a five-year-old would easily be able to tell this Lada from a Rolls-Royce and yet this hasn't stopped its driver from gifting the thing with a massive chrome grille resembling that of Goodwood machines.

Oh well, at least this four-wheeled creature doesn't pack a Spirit Of Ecstasy - the said statue was probably to complicated to replicate.

We only get to see a small part of the cabin, but it quickly becomes obvious that the customisation process has also found its way inside the car we're talking about.

However, it doesn't seem that those behind this build have went through the trouble of replicating the luxurious cabin of a Rolls-Royce. Nevertheless, compared to the spartan air of the original, any improvement is welcome.

We'll tip our lens to the aptly named How Not to Design a Car Facebook page for this spot - you can check out the machine in detail using the photo gallery above.

Keep in mind that we're looking at a vehicle that should be treated with respect. How come? Well, for one thing, this car is 60 years old. Did we say "car"? We meant the engineering underneath the skin.

That's because the roots of Lada engineering take us to Fiat and its 124, a vehicle that hit the market back in 1966.

Who knows? Perhaps the owner of this contraption actually sees his car as a Roller. And this whole story can now be considered richer, since Goodwood introduced the eighth incarnation of the lavish sedan earlier this summer.

This story somehow reminds us of the Rolls-Royce Phantom base-spec fantasy (think: a product of the rendering realm) we recently brought to you.
