Chinese Mechanic Builds Lamborghini Replica For $9,500

September 11, 2012


This is Chinese mechanic Wang Jian's homemade Lamborghini replica. As you can see, the scrap metal body has been pounded out to look like a Lamborghini Reventon. The similarities pretty much end there.

Wang Jian, who comes from a rural area of China's eastern Jiangsu province, pieced his motor together using a second-hand Nissan and a Volkswagen Santana.

Although some parts, such as the headlights and windshields are still missing, the car is otherwise fully operational and can reach a top speed of 160mph.

160mph? I find that a little hard to believe. Of course, the car doesn't weigh anything because it's literally just a scrap metal shell, so who knows. I DO know it's not something I'd feel safe in at 160mph. Or being towed behind a donkey.

Hit the jump for a bunch more shots, including the terrifying interior.







Thanks to rema, Solstice and Ed, who build their car replicas the old fashioned way: out of those little plastic model kits where you always wind up getting model glue on the windshield and ruining it.

  • These chinese people are out of this world, they have been making replicas of everything and now cars, this is something outstanding.

  • paperboy

    Yeah, and my bicycle is a $450 replica of a Harley-Davidson.

    I admire the guy's ingenuity, so no hate there. But $9,500? On what? Scrap metal, bald tires, and an engine out of a 30 year old VW? I think you have one too many zeroes in the price tag.

  • The guy built a custom car with scrap parts... Sounds like a great fun experience, why all the hate? Are you mad America? LOLOLOL Reap What You Sow... It's time for a new order soon. The government is going to regulate and reform, learn to better take care of your materials . ;D

    I think at 160 parts will just start peeling off.

  • That thing cant even reach 160...

  • IVI0E

    It would require only around 100-150 Hp to reach its calculated speed of 160mph (probably weighs a light 1000 lbs); that is however if the tires don't explode!

    I give him an A for effort but his body working skills need to improve

    also this is bad considering I bought my 2000 mustang gt for $5000 off craiglist and its in perfect condition, what exactly cost this guy $9000 he got ripped off

  • Cortney A.

    Well you gotta to take in to consideration that he essentially took parts from two different cars to make this one car, and anyone that has restored a car or built one from scratch will tell you that it costs way more to do that compared to just buying a car.

  • kevin parrino

    looks like everything else that comes out of china

    Like iPhones...

    But seriously, the term "replica" is used very liberal here. :)

  • whacko

    Yup, that's about what I would expect a $9,000 Lamborghini to look like....

  • Closet Nerd

    Even Hellen Keller would laugh at that ride..... just sayin

  • Guest

    Sorry officer, I couldn't read the speed on my dashboard.

  • anyone else notice there's no seat belt or odometer or anything but a steering wheel for that matter? idk about you but I'm not going 160mpH that no matter how much driving experience I have >.>

  • n_a_a_s

    cruising post apocalyptic gotham always had peaked my interest, now I have a ride

    Legend meets Dark Night .....or somethin
