DIY Lamborghini

What do you do if you want your very own yellow Lamborghini Diablo VT Roadster, but you can’t afford it? No problem, said a man in China, I just build my own.

After a year of welding, painting and thoroughly riveting work, the car was done. It is powered by a Nissan V6 Twin Cam 32, the engine of the old Nissan Skyline.

A complete documentation of the build process can be found at Carnewschina.

    In America he would have been the head of a successful kit car body conversion company that advertises how you can turn your rusty Fox body mustang into an SCCA "winning" supercar through three line ads stuffed between male enhancement products and international mail order brides in the back of Car and Driver before his coke habit forced his shadetree company, run out of a warehouse in South Georgia, to go bankrupt and take with it 100 5000 dollar deposits from starry eyed clients straight to a mansion in Bermuda. ...but not before Car and Driver would have reviewed one of his better built examples as a peerless driving instrument and having more lateral g's (the true defining factor of ANY car or SUV) than any of the readily available and reliable cars on the market, ignoring the fact it routinely wouldn't start during the test and bits had a habit of falling off.

    Wow- great to see some real DIY car enthusiasts coming out of China. I can't wait till this guy starts his own kit car company.

  • Robert I have had 4th gen 1996 model for many years and enjoy driving as much now as when I first purchased it - has 190 hp variant with just the right amount of power for most all driving situations!
  • ToolGuy Meanwhile in Germany...
  • Donald More stuff to break god I love having a nanny in my truck... find a good tuner and you can remove most of the stupid stuff they add like this and auto park when the doors open stupid stuff like that
  • John Williams Sounds like a Burnout Special you can put together on any 5.0 F150. Whoever said this was Cars and Coffee bait is right on the money.
  • ToolGuy Question: F-150 FP700 (  Bronze or  Black) supercharger kit is legal in 50 states, while the  Mustang supercharger kit is banned in California -- why??
