Let’s say you really want an Audi R8 but you’re short….pretty much all of the $100k or more it’ll run you to buy an Audi R8:
Well, someone created a potential solution. This enterprising person took a right-hand-drive Toyota MR2 – famed to be one of the best and cheapest mid-engine rides out there – and created their own. Sorta. Let’s take a look at this FrankenAudyota:

It’s really a shame that they killed a MR2 in the making of this car, frankly. At least it wasn’t a Turbo model? Anyway, what they’ve created is…something. The car is far too upright and narrow to actually look like an R8, but instead looks a bit like a knock-off TT that isn’t quite right either. The interior looks a bit less horrible than the outside, at least? What’s amazing to me, though, is that this seller also appears to have a knock-off Ferrari in the garage and a knock-off Bentley outside of it. What an interesting lineup! I think they’ll struggle to get $25,000 for this one, but it is at least good for a chuckle.
Wow. That is definitely one of the ugliest things I’ve ever seen. That “458” is pretty bad too from the looks of it. Why do people do this? Instead of having all three of these heaps, the owner could probably have something like a 360 or a real R8. They aren’t all that expensive. And with the right loan the payments can be around $1k a month which isn’t that much in the grand scheme of things.
Hilarious. The “of course it’s in Florida” is spot on.
