    Worst GTR replica ever?

    Hmmm, brown (black?) left hand drive GTR replica.... not by any stretch of the imagination.

    Slapping over-fenders on a 240K does not a GTR make.

    RHD instrument panel on a LHD dash, now that is just plain weird.

    I don't hate it, but I guess having never gotten these in the States I'm far more accepting of certain sins. It's an interesting car in its own right, but certainly a poor choice for the purposes of that article.

    I think it's a fairly decent job, all things considered. IMHO, it looks better finished than some of the others I've seen out there that are RHD. It will never be confused for a real one by those in the know, but I'd still love to drive it around.

    I dont hate the car. I dont like that the article author and/or owner are trying to pass it off as a GTR "Replica". Takes more than over fenders, front and rear spoilers to make a "replica".

    There are alot more bits required to make it a GTR "look alike", and an S20 to truly make it a "Replica".

    Would be interested to see some under bonnet photos to see how the LHD conversion was done to the RHD car.

    Re: Worst GTR replica ever?

    i personally think its ridiculous to say you need an s20 to make a replica, its a REPLICA not the real thing. :roll:

    id be very happy to own that car its a nice replica imo for a fraction of the cost.
    if you could find a genuine c110 gtr how much would it cost ? 50000 ?
    i wouldnt want to plough massive ammounts of money into a replica trying to make it perfectly correct because it will never be worth anywhere near as much as the real thing no matter what is done to it.
    for the record i could afford to buy an original c110 gtr outright but i wouldnt as although i do like them i wouldnt spend that sort of money on one.
    maybe they just couldnt find a genuine c110 gtr and owner willing to do the article, so they used the next best thing which i dont see any problem with.
