Mike Duke took what started out as an average every-day car and created an impressive body kit to make it appear way cooler than it actually is. The exterior may look like a couple million dollars, but the engine and performance is still a banged-up Mercury Cougar.
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.
