Lexus SC 430 Ruined With Ferrari California Paneling

We don’t get this replica idea quite well enough. Enthusiasts make replicas because they can’t afford the real supercar, right?

So they want a replica to look exactly the same with the original car (at least for the exterior) so that people will say “Oh, there’s a Ferporschini!” and believe that the guy’s pockets are loaded.

It is the only reason somebody would want a replica... to simulate wealth. You won’t achieve the performance or the luxury of the real supercar at home in the garage.

Which brings us to this ugly Ferrari California-wannabe replica. It was made by kit-car builder MI6 from the UK, which are also responsible for the Aston Martin DBS replica based on a Toyota Supra, which looked almost identical to the real thing. Thumbs up for that!

But they have failed a bit with this one, which is based on a Lexus SC 430. They might trick an untrained eye, but for a gearhead it won’t do. The proportions are wrong and the front fascia looks like a retarded frog.

Still, we appreciate their effort which you can see in the photo gallery bellow.
