The Bugatti Veyron is one of the fastest cars in the world and definitely the rarest car in India. The very few (single digit)  Veyrons that have been sold in India make it a sighting as probable as Elvis. Now an Indian car designer (SF Carz) has taken a Maruti Suzuki Esteem (second generation Swift) and turned it into a Veyron. The result hasn’t turned out too bad. Although the smaller dimensions of the Esteem are immediately visible, the effort is certainly a good one.

While the Bugatti Veyron has all of 16-cylinders pumping 1001 PS of power, the Veyron replica makes do with just 85 horses, from its 1.3-liter, 4-cylinder engine. Top speed of the Esteem is 165 km/hr but with all these modifications, expect it to drop slightly. At least the designer has thought of a fake engine cover to replicate the mid-engined Veyron. We are not sure about the cost of this job, but we suspect it would be less than $20,000/- (including the value of the donor car).
