Hello,
You shouldn't ask for mistakes but for what is right.

What is your definition of a mistake?
Mistake in reference to it’s out of size fiberglass body instead of aluminium?
Mistake in reference to its rear flat 4 engine instead of a front in line 4 or 8 cylinder?
Mistake of a double torque bar Beetle front axle instead of a forged one piece steel axle?
Mistake to use all mechanical parts of a car that was build 22 million times to build something that should look like a Bugatti?

A VW replica is not really a replica for my opinion but a funny body on an old beetle chassis. It's something like a (bad) caricature.
The advantage of such cars is that they are that much out of shape so no one would take it as real. :lol:
You can get happy with such a Kit Car in a Kit Car scene but please don't mention the Bugatti brand name. :shock:
If your question was about what you can do wrong when building such a Kit, my answer is that most probably you destroy an original VW Beetle what is bad enough.

Greetings,

minime

Is "amc" referring to the "Atlantic" bought by VW, and referred to in the other thread?

Could well be that I misunderstood the question. :oops:
I haven't made a connection to that.

Only "amc" is able to clarify this.
