  • Is there a particular reason the Mercury Cougar is used for a lot of replicas?

    I was surprised to see so many Ferrari 458 replicas made with a Mercury Cougar (or Ford Cougar in Europe) as the donor. Upon looking into it, I also found Bugatti, Audi R8 and a slew of other supercar replicas that use the Mercury Cougar. Why is this? The engine isn't even in the rear like a Fiero.

      Short hood , correct wheelbase , and it was sold all over Europe and USA so lots of cheap donor cars

        I can see the appeal based on the a pillar to front wheel location and the side profile of the side glass but being fwd, underpowered, having poor handling and brakes I would not use it for any kind of supercar replica personally.
