Why Movie Producers Don’t Buy New Cars

Building a replica car is a great way to practice your mechanical skills while creating something functional. Many car enthusiasts choose to build replica cars so that they can show off their mechanical talent, while enjoying a classic car without the multi-million dollar price tag. There are many different types of replica car kits available, and many different reasons to build one.

One of the most obvious reasons to build a replica car is for the prestige of driving a classic car without having to pay the millions of dollars to own a classic car. The AC Cobra is a popular choice for replica builders, and finding a Cobra replica for sale requires very little work. AC Cobra kits are often built using drive trains from Volkswagen Beetles and Mustangs. Of course, Shelby Cobra kit cars aren’t the only Shelby’s available for home building: kits of the Shelby Daytona coupe are also available. Just be careful to not get into any street races with your kit car unless it has the mechanics to back up the body’s reputation.


Occasionally, kit cars are utilized when filmmakers need to destroy a priceless vehicle. Instead of spending millions on obtaining a rare car, then destroying it and getting the perfect shot, producers will purchase kit cars with fiberglass bodies and destroy them. The most notable example is the replica 1961 Ferrari 250 GT California Spyder destroyed in Ferris Bueller’s Day Off. Taylor Swift is shown destroying a Shelby Cobra in her Blank Space music video, but that was not a replica. Instead, an actual Cobra was brought on set, and the destruction was added with computer generated graphics.

Whether you want to destroy an expensive vehicle in a movie, showcase your mechanical skills, or simply drive around in a snazzy classic car, building a replica vehicle is right for you. You may even be able to list your freshly-built Cobra replica for sale and make a profit! No matter why you decide to build a replica car, you are sure to have a great time.
