Impressive Car Mod... A 'Cougar' into a 'Bugatti' (5pics)

What may look like the $2-million dollar Bugatti Veyron, is actually a modified $2,000 Mercury Cougar...  

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.

What it looked like before: a $2,000 Mercury Cougar
The Real Thing: Bugatti Veyron

It is an up to dated article which is based upon electric vehicle, not only about the vehicle but also contain its services stations and a small data which is essential. It is true that all consumers’ wants are always changes according to their needs. Keeping this point in front of view all automobile sectors are continuing changes and new inventions. The automobile market is variable due to such changes and customer needs.

The development of the electric cars has great benefits both on global environment and for the society. For example more jobs could be created for battery charging stations.
Anyway I do not believe that we could see mass production in the near future. Why? Because the petrol based businesses still have a lot to profit until the natural reserves would be finished.
