[details=Spoiler]For many, a supercar is the purchase of a lifetime. But very few of us have hundreds of thousands of dollars to spend on a Ferrari or Lamborghini. A Chinese farmer found a way to make his dream come true by building a Lambo on his own.
Avid mechanic Wang Jian, the 28-year-old son of a farmer from China’s eastern Jiangsu province, built his dream ride out of two old cars – a Nissan and a Volkswagen.
It took quite a bit of time and effort, but the results were rather impressive: For around $9500, Jian built himself a custom-made replica of a 2007 Lamborghini Reventon.
You’ll probably never see the genuine article speeding down the road, since there are only 21 Reventons in existence, valued at up to $1.5 million each.

The replica hasn’t been completed yet, the Daily Mail reported – the vehicle is still missing headlights and windows. But the car is otherwise ready to hit the road, and can hit speeds of up to 250kph.

“I’ve always loved sports cars since I was a child,” Jian told The Daily Telegraph.* “After growing up, I thought of making my own… When I had the right circumstances and the time, I assembled it myself and realized my dream.”*[/details]

Yo, Dawg! I heard you like fixed images in your images…
So I put fixed images in my fixed images.


#4

Rotten to the core series. :tdown:


#5

Rotten like the carcass of your broke-assed-sense-of-humor-which-probably-died-with-your-first-relationship?
Or rotten like the carcass of Saddam Heussein, Muammar Gaddafi, or Osama Bin Laden? JFK? C’mon bro. Be constructive. I don’t have time for your shit.


#6

I read another article about this. His father is really proud of him. He wasn’t content bootlegging mere DVDs and video games like those before him.


#7

It’d be pretty sick rolling up to the AsteroidBucks drive-thru for a midget coffee


#8

This is pretty damn godlike. Some dudes hustle money for a car, this dude hustle parts and metal working for one. Nothing but respect for the dude.


#9

Amazing work :slight_smile:
