Meet The Internet Frauds Who Want To Sell You A Top Gear-Endorsed $49,000 Bugatti
When we were first alerted to the existence of poorly shot, poorly edited YouTube videos made by a replica car manufacturer that featured Tanner Foust and clips from Top Gear, it raised a number of red flags. What was Foust (and Steven Spielberg) doing endorsing this company? Can they really make you a Saleen S7 for $20,000? How come they never feature any completed cars on their websites? This was our first foray into the the bizarre world of Panama-based Super Replicas, lately known as "Top Gear Carbon Copies." It's a world full of unsubstantiated claims and falsehoods about celebrity-endorsed exotic cars that cost as much as a Toyota Camry and it's been going on for years.
