Default Buyers beware

Hi All,

I’m in the lookout to buying My first G, but I have come across pop up on my YouTube feed that gives myself and all buyers some great concern.

Looking at this, how the hell do you know if you are buying a real G or a replica as this looks so real and exact interior and exterior, even the engine. These kits are apparently mass produced.

In the UK we have a logbook but even the VIN can be manipulated which could therefore manipulate this:

Any thoughts on this?

Seriously guys, read the comments.
It’s a fake fake. ie., a real Lambo. The video is a parody.
Will Motivation is well known on this forum.

Yep, it’s definitely not a replica.

Imagine being able to make replicas that good for $25k. Imagine that you choose to replicate not a Bugatti, not a Diablo, no no. The Gallardo. That's the one.

$25k what a scam, you can get a Bugatti Chiron replica complete with 7ltr LS7 V8 for $23k (same parody)

First,

1. Theres some scammers on Youtube (not Will, his was a parody) showing real Lambos and Ferraris, then cutting to a fiberglass mold saying you will get a perfectly realistic lambo for like $20k or $30k. Its BS, its been going on for at least a decade on Youtube. You wire the $$ and never get anything.
2. Second, kit cars are kit cars. None of them are realistic. None of them drive worth crap. You really want to drive around in a stretched 86 fiero? The only people they fool are people ignorant of cars. The same ones that will mistake a C7 for an F12. Or the time that person thought my 94 Viper was a Miata. When you go to a car show you will be the fool.
3. What are you trying to accomplish? A crappy kit with a V6 or LS1 that vaguely resembles a lambo or ferrari, with incorrect proportions for $80k? Yes you'll have that much into a half decent build. You can buy a G for $80k or less for high mileage examples. Or even a salvage murci for around $100k
4. If you have the skills it takes to build a kit car, save yourself the trouble and go to copart and buy a wrecked ferrari or lamborghini, fix it up, and own it for about half the cost. You can pick up a 360 or G for $30-40k. Yes its salvaged, but if you fixed it right you're good. And it is a *REAL* ferrari or lambo that you will be able to sell and recoup your $ if you did it wisely. I've never seen a completed kit car sell for more than $20-30k and thats for the ones they spent $80-100k on.

As stated many times in life. If it is cheap, it's either not real or broken.
