Man from China makes Lamborghini Diablo from Scratch
Published on February 19, 2012 by Tycho de Feijter
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.
The welding starts.
Checking some data. Man sits next to gearbox.
The chassis, coming together.
Wiring, always difficult.
Dash designed. Real car’s dash was crappy too.
Suspension in place.
Dash sexed up…
… very much.
Painting the body.
Now, ain’t she pretty?
Fixing the engine.
