They began sourcing parts from China's version of eBay, Taobao Marketplace. One year and $227,000 USD later, the replica finally became a reality. It's powered by a Toyota-sourced V8 engine and can go from 0 to 60mph in 4.8 seconds, topping out at 192mph. Continue reading to see the entire build process from start to finish.

When Frenchman Emile Leray became stranded in a Moroccan desert in 1993 with a non-drivable Citroen, he turned on his MacGyver instincts. This enterprising electrician would not be denied in his quest to find his way back home and singlehandedly rebuilt his Citreon into a makeshift motorbike.
