Epic DIY Lamborghinis

Can't afford your own Lamborghini? Then just build one.

Lamborghini is perhaps the most popular supercar manufacturer in the world. A small handful of production cars are both faster and more expensive than the Aventador and the Gallardo, but that hasn't diminished the allure of the Raging Bull one bit. Lamborghinis carry a high price tag, so it's no wonder that some people would choose to build their own rather than sell their house to buy one. Some of these DIY Lambos look good; others leave a lot to be desired for in the looks department. All can be seen below.

The Chinese are often derided for manufacturing cheap knockoff electronics, but it's hard to argue the skill or the dedication that went into making this Lamborghini Diablo VT Roadster replica. An intrepid Chinese DIYer spent a year building his faux Lambo from the ground up. Other than its Toyota V8 twin turbo engine, the Lamborghini Diablo VT Roadster replica looks exactly like the real deal.

Chan Jinmiao is the definition of a baller of a budget. The 25-year-old truck driver from China decided to build his own Lamborghini on a budget of around $3,000. The resulting creation kind of sort of looks the part. The butterfly doors are spot on, but the top speed of 55 mph leaves a lot to be desired.

Ken Imhoff is the man everybody on this list should aspire to be. Imhoff is the man who, after watching "Cannonball Run," was inspired to build his own Lamborghini Countach in his basement. The project took 17 years and cost Imhoff one of his basement walls, but the resulting replica is well worth it.

You can now add the Lamborghini Miura to the laundry list of Pontiac Fiero conversions. This creation comes to user courtesy of the owner of appropriately named Chop Top Fiero. The Fiero that was is unrecognizable thanks to its eye-catching Miura body kit.
