I thought it was just cheap turbos, charge air coolers and bypass air valves. They have taken it to an entirely different spectrum. None the less..



If I could buy a Phantom Look-A-Like for 1/4th of the price, I would. But, unfortunately for me, even the knock off is heavily overinflated sporting a $300,000 price tag. Tsk.. Tsk.. Tsk...

Any idea on the actual price? I'm curious because those numbers don't add up. 300K for a replica is neither 1/4 of the price nor a good idea. Why spend THAT much for a knock off. If you're dropping that kinda dough, I'm sure you can shell out another 50K or so and pick up a new '07 Phantom.

That'll be good, "can I have 10 of her please".

We'll copy the shit outta everyone and do it for cheap, thats part of our culture. But now money is pouring into China and people there are demanding original stuff.
