Need help buying your next car? Click the following link and my team and I will help you choose your ideal car at a fair price - from Mat Watson! bit.ly/-Help-Me-carwow

Have you ever looked at a really expensive cars and thought you'd recognised parts from somewhere else? Well chances are, you probably had!

You see, it can be really expensive for manufacturers to design every part of a new car from scratch. Even smaller parts such as light fittings or interior buttons can cost time \u0026 money to develop, so more often than not, manufacturers will borrow elements from other models.

And whether the car is cheap or expensive, they're all at it! Even some of the most legendary cars you can think of are guilty of borrowing from other manufacturers! So with that in mind, we've pulled together a list of 13 of the most legendary cars which have borrowed from others before.

The question is, are you surprised that any of these cars have appeared on our list? Let us know in the comments!
