Man from China makes Lamborghini Diablo from Scratch

Man from China makes Lamborghini Diablo from Sratch

This fine yellow sportmachine loox like a Lamborghini Diaoblo VT Roadster but it is not. It is in fact a brilliant replica made by a very big Lamborghini fan from China. He built it literally from scratch, chassis and platform are all home-made, the engine is a Nissan V6 Toyota 1UZ V8 twin turbo. Only the foam body was made by another company. Our man worked hard for almost a full year but I guess it was all worth it. See how a miracle became:

The chassis, rods all made of steel.

Celica will not overtake. This extremely sweet engineering reminds of another China-made Lamborghini, and that Ariel Atom… Great work, great car, great country.

    That’s not a Skyline engine, Skyline’s had Inline6 engines, this V6 probably comes from a 300ZX, or some large Nissan sedan…

    ahh fck it, I knew it wasn’t a Skyline engine since it obviously isn’t an I6 engine, so I assumed it’s a Nissan’s V6 since the author of the article said the engine comes from a Nissan…
