    Neat! But doesn’t this violate copyright? It’s kind of like bragging about making fake rolex watches in the basement.

    Impressive, a very impressive piece of work!

    Still the best supercar of all time in respect of its design impact too.

    why is it whenever something like this comes up on the web, there’s always that 1 douchbag that cries photoshopped? i mean seriously, i see shit like this all the time, i’ve built kit cars before, and i’ve seen crazy complete from the ground up customs. Kudos for this man’s hard work and ingenuity. and copyright? it’s so awesome it deserves to be a Lambo.

    why is it whenever something like this comes up on the web, there’s always that 1 douchbag that cries about someone saying photoshopped. i mean seriously, its a joke….

    Photoshopped. The pixels are all wrong, and I’ve seen a couple shops in my life.

  9. shoop September 8, 2009 9:04 pm

    its shopped, I can tell by the pixels.

  10. cw October 5, 2009 7:37 pm

    Yeah- why CRY photoshop when there’s no need? It’s OBVIOUSLY photoshopped, I mean, it just goes without saying.

  11. Trod October 8, 2009 11:43 pm

    Both photoshopped jokes are tired.

  12. Fig October 13, 2009 3:57 am

    Indeed. I lol’d at the ‘shopped’ comment (all 42 pictures!), but KNEW some dork would ‘cry foul!’

  13. heehee November 10, 2009 4:54 pm

    stop with the trolling!!!

  14. eagger November 10, 2009 9:34 pm

    Man – this is the single most impressive thing I have seen in years….respect…

    Why is the heck did he build it in his basement if there was no way to get it out but dig a huge effing hole?

  16. raptor jesus November 19, 2009 9:33 pm

    yeah you can definitely tell this is photoshopped, the reflections and lighting are all wrong

    for it to not violate copyright laws, i think he would have to take the lamborghini brand decals off and insist that it was an amateur replica. obviously[due to the apparent skill] not amateur but im sure there are legal boundaries

  18. Epic Porportions March 5, 2010 12:42 pm

    It would be illegal if he started making those cars and begun distributing them. It is legal to make one for your personal use though.

    SHOPPED, i mean, who rocks a mullet in 2010?

  20. Greta Garbo July 27, 2010 10:09 pm

    WOW and WOW and WOW; the guy must have had a lot of time at hand. At least he did not spend it in front of the TV.

  21. poizon December 12, 2010 5:53 pm

    @tn “SHOPPED, i mean, who rocks a mullet in 2010?” well.. if you had read the description before the photos, its been 10 years in the making. alot of people rocked a mullet in the 2000’s including me lmao.

    Man, that is one AMAZINGLY impressive effort, and great skill – 10 years…

    HOWEVER it would have been so much cheaper to just bloody BUY one – wages lost in that time: at least $250 000, surely enough to buy the real thing?

    Since the guy obviously had an itch to scratch and the talent to do it, why not make something TRULY rare, something that there are only 1 or 2 in the world?
    Damn Countach – horrible machine. Sure, it was impactful like few other cars had been, but as a car on its own merit, terrible!

    I REALLY hope he drove a real one BEFORE he made this, as they’re an absolute PIG to drive – horrible on the gear changes, the heat, the smell, no visibility, almost no comfort… and that ug-lee interior that makes absolutely ZERO concessions to elegance, design, HUMAN ergonomics…

    I am guessing he always dreamed of having one from childhood – always the way. Shame he didn’t fall in love with a better car… At least make it a Miura, for the love of all that is beautiful!
