Chinese Lamborghini replica – Click above for high-res image gallery

We've seen our fair share of Chinese knockoffs of legitimate cars and trucks. While The People's Republic seems to have no problem generating genuine auto manufacturers, everyone's favorite communist nation must suffer from a dearth of designers. It's always hard to embrace a faux Bentley or half-hearted Hummer, but there's something about this creation that we can get behind. You see, the "Lamborghini" you see above wasn't created out of some desire to trick buyers or onlookers. No, it was built out of the same genuine love for the automobile we all share.

Chen Jenmiao, a 25 year-old mechanic with a Lamborghini bent, decided that if he couldn't own a genuine Raging Bull, he'd build his own. The guy pulled together around $3,000 worth of parts and materials and set to work. The finished product has a top speed of somewhere between 60 and 90 mph, though you won't hear us criticize the guy for falling short of Gallardo performance figures. After all, when was the last time you put together an entire car from scratch?

      I'm sure if the title of the post didn't say Lamborghini, most of you haters wouldn't have much to say. Great job for using what he had at his disposal and making a car on his (more or less) own.

      Lamborghini is probably writing up a lawsuit!
      • 4 Years Ago
      So wait...it's NOT a real Lamborghini?
        • 4 Years Ago
        It's a Ramborghini.
        • 4 Years Ago
        Duh, a real Gallardo doesn't have amber turn signals in the front. Geesh.

        If I was exceedingly rich I'd buy him a Lambo. He probably deserves more than anyone else to go to such lengths.

      Skill? And you people think its great. You can get a fiero lambo kit for that much. And it would go a hell of alot faster than 60mph. That top speed is smokin'. And I love the wheels. The loser should have just bought an actual car that can go the speed limit. As for as the guy that said he's got talent in a emerging market in china, ok. If you like it so much, why dont you send him 3 grand and take pride going 60 on the freeway and hope you dont catch fire or crash.

      All I'm saying is hey, I can do a LOT better with 3k.
        • 4 Years Ago
        OK, let's see it!
        • 4 Years Ago
        Probably the dumbest reply I've seen all week. I never said I was going to make a car for 3k. I said I could do better with 3k.

        I guess you don't read what you post!

        Like WHAT?
        • 4 Years Ago
        You live by "It's better to think that you can, then know that you can't". Got it, thanks for the clarification

        Se30 in my eyes, will longer no hold any credibility here until he shows us with hi-res pics what he can do with $3k. Until then, S.T.F.U !!

        "Se30 in my eyes, will longer no hold any credibility here until he shows us with hi-res pics what he can do with $3k. Until then, S.T.F.U !!"

        To be honest though, if he blows $3K in a weekend on beer and strippers and posts the pics, I'd rate him up.

        Why don't you show us then. Otherwise it's just hot air.
      • 4 Years Ago
      Seriously! Kudos!, or as Google Translate would put it = 祝贺

      I hope this gives this guy visibility and it gets him somewhere!
        • 4 Years Ago
        Knowing Google Translate, you probably just insulted his mother or something.
      • 4 Years Ago
      Fantastic! Just look at the seats!.

      It looks like a lego car.
      • 4 Years Ago
      It reminds me of a soap box racer
      • 4 Years Ago
      it looks like its made out of legos.
      but props to the guy for using what he had at his disposal.
