China Has Made Another Ford F-150 Clone, This Time Of The Raptor 17

The Chinese are back at it, creating a pickup truck that takes obvious design inspiration from the Ford F-150 Raptor.

Reports from China say that the vehicle comes from a company dubbed Projen and while sales of the pickup have yet to commence, we wouldn’t be surprised if the carmaker has some difficulties actually bringing it to the market.

Back in 2012, JAC Motors unveiled a direct copy of the Ford F-150 to its dealers in China. However, Ford managed to prevent the company from building the pickup, revealing to the press that it had gone to the trouble of securing design patents in China. Given the popularity of the F-150 Raptor, we’d be surprised if Ford didn’t also have patents for the hardcore pickup in China as well.

Either way, the design of the Projen is hilariously similar to the real thing. For starters, the blacked-out front grille is essentially identical to the Raptor, as are the headlights. Additionally, the Projen includes a silver skid plate, beefy wheels, tires, and tailgate and taillight designs similar to the Raptor.

If the Projen does somehow reach the production line before Ford steps in, it will allegedly carry a 2.5-liter turbocharged engine.

Indian Firm Creates Mahindra-Based Jeep Wrangler Replica 13

This Jeep Wrangler looks just like any other. In fact, if you asked almost anyone what vehicle it is, they too would say it’s a Jeep. However, it’s not.

What we are instead looking at is a Jeep Wrangler replica built by an Indian company called Jeep Studio.

The vehicle started life out as a Mahindra Thar, an off-roader which already looks very similar to the outgoing Wrangler. However, to make the thing appear more genuine, Jeep Studio spent four months converting it with all-new body panels.

Indian Autos Blog reports that the Thar’s new body panels have been complemented by LED headlights and taillights, wing mirrors from a Wrangler, hood latches, reinforced tailgate, toughened glass, 33-inch Maxxis tires, black wheels, and matte black paint.

Imitation really is the sincerest form of flattery.

Jaguar XK180 Concept Replica Will Cost You A Pretty Penny 12

Unless you’re a billionaire with close ties to a carmaker, you’re unlikely to ever have the opportunity of purchasing a one-off concept. Fortunately, Jaguar enthusiasts can now do the next best thing, buying a Jaguar XK180 recreation.

Jaguar unveiled the eye-popping supercar concept at the 1999 Paris Motor Show as a way to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the XK. Sadly, the vehicle never made it to production but that hasn’t stopped a company based in the Netherlands from bringing the XK180 back to life.

The company, Autobedrijf de Koning BV, claims to be offering accurate recreations of the XK180, based around the XKR. The car pictured is reportedly the first example built and has a steep 235,000 euro ($272,000) asking price on Mobile.

Based on the images available, the car appears to be almost identical to the real thing and even includes a very similar interior. In fact, we’d probably be fooled into thinking it’s the one-off concept if we ever saw one of these clones on the road.

Datsun-Based Ferrari 250 GTO Replica Looks Like The Real Deal 5

The world is flooded with so many Ferrari 250 GTO replicas that it’s often difficult to know what’s real and what’s fake. Case in point, this remarkably accurate 250 GTO replica.

Currently for sale from Orlando Classic Cars in Florida, the car is based around a 1978 Datsun 280Z and could easily fool anyone who doesn’t know classic Ferraris like the back of their hand.

At the front, the replica includes headlights pretty much identical to the real thing and even includes accurate fakes of the three air intakes found directly above the small front grille. There’s also large Cavallino stickers on the sides, wing mirrors on the front fenders and a roofline that almost has us fooled.

While the owner clearly spent a lot of time and money perfecting the exterior, the cabin isn’t as impressive and looks like any other old 280Z except for its bespoke gauges, steering wheel and selection of Ferrari logos.

No price has been made public but it would probably be cheap enough for most Ferrari aficionados to afford.

Following a preview last year, Revology has officially unveiled its 1967 Shelby GT500 replica at SEMA.

Officially licensed by Shelby, the car features a reproduction steel body which can be painted in an assortment of different colors. The model also has a fiberglass hood, LED lighting units, and a high performance exhaust system. Other notable highlights include side stripes and 17-inch aluminum wheels which are backed up by four wheel disc brakes that feature ventilated and slotted rotors.

The retro styling continues in the cabin and the car comes nicely equipped with air conditioning, power windows / locks, and brushed aluminum trim. Revology also installs power front seats, a classic wood rim steering wheel, and a four-speaker audio system. Customers can also order a premium audio system and a 7-inch infotainment system with Android Auto and Apple CarPlay compatibility.

A supercharged 5.0-liter V8 engine resides under the hood and produces 600 hp (447 kW) and 475 lb-ft (643 Nm) of torque. It can be connected to either a six-speed manual or a six-speed automatic transmission. Regardless of which gearbox is selected, both send power to the rear wheels via a limited slip differential.

Pricing starts at $219,000 for models equipped with the manual transmission and $222,840 for vehicles with the automatic gearbox.
