This Lexus LC 500 Is Really An Old Toyota Celica

This is normally the type of car that’ll appear on Craigslist or eBay where the seller will make all sorts of claims regarding how much money they invested into it over the years. But as we all know, cars depreciate in value so any investments made for tuning or whatever is money down the drain. And yet this 2001 Toyota Celica turned fake Lexus LC 500 has an asking price tag of $10,000. What’s more, it’s a dealership that’s selling it, not a private individual. What kind of dealership would agree to sell this?

A Russian one.

Yes, this means you’ll have to travel all the way to Russia to see this fake LC 500 in person before deciding whether or not to pull the trigger. According to the dealer, power comes from a 1.8-liter inline-four with 190 horsepower paired to a four-speed automatic transmission. This is the typical drivetrain for the seventh-generation Celica, sold from 1999 to 2006.
