Brilliant Homemade Lamborghini


You wouldn’t admit to wearing a knock-off Louis Vuitton watch, would you? So how about telling everyone you drive a fake supercar? We can guess the answer.

Although in the case of Chinese racing fan and part-time mechanic Wang Yu, we don’t blame him for vaunting his very own DIY Lamborghini Diablo, as it’s arguably the best fake supercar we’ve ever seen.

Faithfully curved like its official counterpart, the level of detail here is staggering, as is the ingenuity shown by Yu and his best friend and partner in crime Li Lintao.

This isn't some two-bit operation stuffing a battered engine from a Vauxhall Nova under some futuristic shell. Quite the opposite - the pair spent over £400,000 in pursuit of the right parts, even hiring workers to help build the automobile over a period of six years.

And it's fast - really fast - reaching speeds of 193mph when pushed to the edge, meaning the investment may just pay dividends when it lands on the (black) market.

Well, so long as they're not visited by any Italian lawyers in the meantime.
