According to EnglishRussia, who discovered this interesting replica, the vehicle you see here was constructed by its owner without the assistance of any high tech or specialized tools. It is named Valentina after the owner's wife, perhaps to make up for the countless late nights in the garage that likely went into crafting this vehicle.

We may not know what kind of car this replica is based on, but we can safely say although it may not be a Mercedes SLR Mclaren this custom creation is truly one of a kind.
