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?
