The Geo Metro Makes a Comeback as…a Bugatti Veyron!?

While many kit car companies pride themselves on things like building a cheap car to look as indistinguishably close to a Lamborghini as possible, new car design company SF Carz (the “z” at the end makes them legit) decided to take one of the slowest cars in the world and make it look like one of the fastest cars in the world.

What is this I don’t even…

Believe it or not, this, uhh…thing, started its life as a second generation Suzuki Swift – or depending on where you are in the world, also known as the Suzuki Esteem, or as we Americans are all too familiar with, the infamous Geo Metro. That’s right, the same car that brings us gems like this:

To be fair, as far as looks go, this is actually pretty well done. No, it’s not going to fool anybody with two functioning eyes, but to take this car…

Suzuki Swift

and turn it into this car…

Suzuki-Veyron-Replica-6

…takes some skill.

Despite the fact that this car is powered not by the Veyron’s quad-turbocharged W16 1,001 hp monster powerplant but by a wheezing 1.3-liter four-banger sputtering out a meazly 85 hp (when it was new,) you might get some heads to turn. Whether that’s a good thing or not is to be determined.

The blue-tinted headlight surrounds to make it look like the car has HIDs is a nice touch, likely purchased from a China-based eBay Motors merchant selling them at $1.59 per kit. I’m also liking the always-up rear spoiler/air brake and the 16-inch wheels that just scream “Classy”. The fact that the car is almost taller than it is wide probably doesn’t do it any justice though. And if you’re going to make a Veyron replica, why wouldn’t you put out the extra cash and do a signature two-tone paint scheme?

Hi! I founded Automoblog.net in May of 2006. I'm an avid sports car and supercar enthusiast. My favorite cars include the Audi R8, Lamborghini Diablo 6.0 VT, and Koenigsegg CCX. I think the Ferrari 360 Spider is still one of the most beautiful cars in existence. For “normal” cars, I tend to lean towards imports - Nissan, Audi, and of course the Italians. I'm in love with my Pearl Yellow (don't judge) 1990 Nissan 300ZX Twin Turbo and plan to get around 550 HP to the rear wheels one day. I'm also a world traveler and have been backpacking Europe since March 2012, writing about cars along the way

    It looks stylish but still slow under the hood… Won’t it be embarrassing if the Geo pulled up next to a real Buggatti at a red light?
