Supercar replicas are nothing new, but rarely do they come close to their real-life counterpart. Ilya Strekal may have found the best looking Ferrari 458 Italia replica yet, but the hardest part may have been tracking down an actual owner of one in St. Petersburg and having them agree to do a side-by-side comparison video. How long did it take to build? So far, it has taken the shop over 2-years to get to this point. Read more for two videos and additional information.
Chris Steinbacher of B is for Build recently took his custom off-road Lamborghini Huracan to Las Vegas in preparation for the Mint 400 race in December. Officially called “The Jumpacan,” this is not simply a stripped supercar, but it actually started as a wrecked vehicle that was purchased and then 3D-scanned by the team to get things straight again. Next, they swapped out the original V10 engine for an LS V8 out back, mated to a Graziano 6-speed manual transmission. Read more for two videos, additional pictures and information.

Gas Monkey Garage’s Aaron Kaufman is known for his crazy supercar builds, and his latest for Daily Driven Exotics is no exception. This twin-turbocharged Ferrari F12 is unlike any other as to even fit the giant turbines, he had to completely disassemble the front end, including the inner fenders as well as cut holes in the hood. That’s not all, the throttle bodies also needed to be shifted to the front of the motor and the charge pipes relocated right down into the center of the intercooler.

At first glance, this vehicle looks like a real 1969 Ford Mustang, but upon closer inspection, you still may not realize it’s just a heavily modified 2009 Hyundai Accent. Since the latter isn’t the same size as the original muscle car, the proportions are slightly off, especially its width, but we’re certain that this will fool most non automobile enthusiasts on the road. Unfortunately, it probably doesn’t have a Windsor V8 engine. Read more for a short video and additional pictures.
