An independent coachbuilder from China with too much spare time on his hands decided to create a replica of the Pagani Huayra.

Just like some electronics manufacturers in China are launching replicas of smartphones which aren't even out yet, someone decided to beat Pagani to the punch and create a Huayra Roadster. While the real deal is expected to come out within the next two years, its impersonator is here and tries to mimic the original but on a tight budget.

The effort put into creating the car is somewhat impressive yet futile as you can spot the differences from a mile away, aside from the obvious roofless configuration and the lack of a central quad exhaust. There's also an issue with the windscreen which for reasons beyond our understanding it is way too tinted and because it's so narrow, it certainly won't provide the necessary protection.
