UPDATE: We misread the original Argentina Auto Blog piece when we reported that Joan Ferci has found buyers for three Coatls. it reality, he's building three of the cars in the hopes of finding buyers for them. The Coatl remains as bizarre and fishlike as ever, and everything else below holds true.

Joan Ferci, the designer who somehow has permission to slap Lamborghini badges on the fishlike creations his mind comes up with, has actually found three buyers for the bizarrely-named, ridiculously-styled, Coatl sports car. According to Argentina Auto Blog, which has led the way regarding coverage of all things Ferci, reports that these Coatl production cars will have 350 horsepower and a top speed of 300 km/h. The original "Lamborghini" Coatl Ferci produced (shown above) was Diablo-based, boasted a far more robust 675 horsepower and was priced at over $600,000. The cars being built and sold now are supposedly under $100,000 each. Whether they use any Lamborghini mechanicals at all is a complete mystery, but the low power output and price compared to the original is puzzling, to say the least.

Lamborghini Alar by Joan FerciFerci is still looking for a location upon which to build the manufacturing facility for his most recent Diablo-derived creation, the gratuitously ugly Lamborghini Alar. For reasons only Ferci knows, the Alar (concept version shown at right) looks like it's wearing a Spider-Man costume when viewed from above. The mind reels.

      Absolutely disgusting. Yuck, looks like a sh!+ty sci-fi animator drew a sh!+ty car.

      Andrew, you can't even compare any cars to this monstrosity of an automobile.

      Look at how many amazing & beautiful cars are available at that price or LOWER!

      $100,000? SCREW that! Frig, give me a nice Audi A3 for a 'normal' car and buy a used '05 or '06 Porsche Cayman maybe even Carrera. Or.....

      Ugh. Hideous.

      coatl, i take it, would take its name from Quetzalcoatl, the feathered serpent god of the Aztec pantheon. There seems to be both hints of both the anguine and the feathered in the design of this car, so the name is not that horridly bizzare.

      Here's an image of the back of the "Coatl".

      That thing is ridiculous. I'm not sure whether to feel suprised at its looks or disgusted.

      The Coatl, assuming that's the top car, doesn't look too bad. I'd rather see the hood smoothed out, but, it's the best looking Lamborghini I've seen since the Diablo.

      It sure looks a whole lot better than the Enzo, Veyron, and CCX as far as I'm concerned. Hell, the Aztek that's been through a crusher looks better than the Enzo and Veyron.

      The Coatl, from the top photo, doesn't look all that bad to me when you compare to another fish-like Italian sports car, the F430. I wouldn't spend a six-figure number on the car unless I read good reviews from mainstream European or North American sources.

      Hey, that's a modified Chevy Camaro.

      So... Ferrari lets a millionaire in new york badge a custom designed p 4/5 only because it was pinafirina and lambo lets these kind of cars have their branding.

      i dont get it
