Sorta-kinda ghetto (in the fact that he's turned it into something that it's not), but I have to admire this guy's fabrication skills. A very well done DIY Mclaren SLR.

Honestly, Im impressed. This guy has taken a destroyed POS and made it into his own custom SLR Mclaren! It actually takes some crazy skills and fabrication to make what it was into what it became. I give the guy props. Even though at the end of the day you truly do not own a supercar You can even say he is the BIGGEST car enthusiast in the world.

That was awesome. Kinda anti-ghetto really. The idea of ghetto is taking a car that has taste and turning into something ghastly. This guys done the opposite... turning a wreck into quite a classy imitation. Id drive it.

$20K for that rigged up mobile? No thanks. Cut the price in half and you'd get a buyer somewhere for the ice blue engine paint. Stupid as hell...
