Dressing up budget hatchbacks to appear to be something more than they are seems to be all the rage these days. Toyota iQ becomes Aston Martin Cygnet. Mini Cooper becomes the Rolls-Royce-inspired Goodwood edition. Even the Fiat 500 has had its Tributo Ferrari. But while most of these kinda make our eyes roll a little (or a lot), this latest privateer entry into their ranks just makes us chuckle.

Someone, it seems, took a fifth-generation (1992-95) Honda Civic hatchback and dressed it up to look like a mini-me Bugatti Veyron, complete with two-tone Rape Yellow and black paint job. And you know what? It doesn't look half bad.

Sure, the wheels don't match, and yes, it is downright comical to dress up a car that should barely sell for more than $2,000 to look like one that costs over a million. But while it may be missing a few cylinders – make that a few cylinder banks, and the quad turbos – it manages to tickle our funny bone in a way few other gussied-up premium hatchbacks can.

      I've seen far worse and I got to hand it to the guy he did a good job. Definitely not my style but I give him respect.

      this is very ill-advised but you gotta give credit where it is due. That is actually pretty well crafted and the styling is actually pretty good too........... Props to the creator for creativity and excellent execution of his dream without being overly stupid

        I have a agree with you because as sad as it still is, this is a VERY well executed mod and it actually does look pretty good for a civic (minus the Bugatti grill and the non-matching front wheel).

      It's very clean, I'll give it that. I'll applaud whoever did this for the quality of their work, if not for their taste.

      I'd give in an "F" for concept, but an "A" for creativity and a "B+" for execution.

      Looks a lot better than most 15 year old beater Hondas I see, all wearing screwy table top wings, mismatched ground effects that are half falling off and the wrong color door. Sure the wheels are a fail but that's an easy fix.

        Mine is 100% stock except for 15" GSR wheels with Dunlop Direzzas, a stainless Thermal catback, and a swaybar. Pix: http://a6.sphotos.ak.fbcdn.net/hphotos-ak-ash4/222218_511851165076_107500324_30340432_851959_n.jpg
