Kit-cars, the bastard stepchildren of high-end exotics everywhere. From the iconic Ferrari 308 and Lamborghini Countach, to the Bentley Continental and Shelby Cobra, these cars do unfortunately fill a void in the automotive hobby. Most cars start out life as ill-fated Pontiac Fiero’s, but every now and again you come across one that’s actually pretty cool. Take for instance this 2008 Aston Martin Vanquish replica that’s currently for sale on eBay Motors. It started life as a 1998 Jaguar XK8 with a 300 hp 4.0L V8. From there all the body panels were stripped and the Aston kit was installed and painted matte black. Now granted, this car may not be for everyone, but as far as kit-cars go, it’s really not half bad. Click through for more pics and video after the jump.
