This forum? It's all serious replica builders. I thought I would share the "good" fake Zonda.

I was going to join the forum but I don't have the shop, the skills, the money or the well, any of it. These guys are for real

But have a poke around once there. Crazy awesome some of the shit these guys can do.

Enjoy

M120 Mercedes-Benz v12... Looks like a Porsche or Audi gearbox. That exhaust it totally Amazing the guy has some real fabrication skills. It's nice to see a replica not made out of cardboard, expanding foam and body filler!

Hey Nick, i'm running a 4l lexus motor with a audi tdi box. I will fit two t3/t4 garrets with intercoolers.
Next one i will also be using the audi motor.
I like the toyota as it revs, & its light on fuel for everyday use plus i havnt broken one yet & they are dirt cheap here in SA.

I recognized it right away. He says this will be sold for 110 USD.

I did see a Merc V12 in the mocked up body by the end of the tread. I'm still reading it all....

Here is the guy's other build:

He twin turboed another 1UZ for this car too. They say 800bhp.

Yeah, I think I'm sticking with this engine for a while.

I like the guy's attitude- he is also quoted as saying this:
If you don't start building something you will never know if you have the skills or not. Even if you don't finish a project you will always learn something new from it, and how to do it better the next time round.
Cheers Jose'

Speaking of money, I wrote in an above post that the Zonda replica will be sold for 110 USD, that's $110,000.00 Wow.
