10 DIY luxury cars born in the junkyard

All of us associate any luxury car with a huge state of the art manufacturing unit as its originating point. However, you will be shocked to know that not all of these beauties come from a completely automated robotic assembly line. These cars, which are an amalgamation of artistic design and brute performance, can actually be built from pieces of apparently worthless junk. Here is a description of 10 cars whose origin has been nothing short of a miracle.

Unbelievably, this mean machine is built in a backyard by an Englishman, who apparently took 4 years to build this fine piece of art. He has now put it up for sale.

All of us dream of owning luxurious and expensive cars, but most of us fail to fulfill our dreams because we cannot afford them. Asan, the owner of a hair salon in Kunming, China, also had a big dream of buying the sports car Lamborghini Reventon, but he did not have enough money. However, he decided to do something that most of us do not even imagine in our weirdest dreams. He actually decided and built his own Lamborghini Reventon!

Any auto enthusiast will tell you that the Bugatti Veyron is a legendary model. With a maximum speed of 267 mph, it is the world's fastest road legal car. However, before you drive in this wonder machine, you will have to dish out a whopping 1.5 million dollars. Therefore, a person from Florida decided to build his own Bugatti. His base was a complete 2002 Mercury Cougar coupe. Starting his way from the outside, he transformed the base car into his dream one. But the only downside is that he was not able to replicate its performance.
