Is This the World’s Worst Lamborghini Replica?
I was having a discussion with the lovely Ms. Amber Blonigan of GI Motorsport last night about how fun it would be to have a real demolition derby with some 2004 Lamborghini Gallardo’s, and Ferrari 360′s, both of which would be immense fun to destroy. This led to a conversation about replica exotics, which led to an Ebay Search, which led to a discussion on how the owners and builders of replica exotics are delusional in thinking their fakery is worth actual dollars. I myself tried to buy a replica Ferrari a year or so back specifically for the point of finding out which was more flammable, a real Ferrari or a Fake one, and was dumbfounded at the kind of money people wanted. $25,000 and more for a fake Ferrari? Hell, you can buy a real Ferrari for that kind of money. Which brings me to this miracle of modern engineering.
There are so many things wrong with this abomination, I don’t even know where to start. Oh wait, yes I do: It’s built on a 1996 Dodge Stratus. What would make someone think that a Stratus would be a perfect donor car for a Lamborghini? They even left the engine in the front, creating the most awkward looking front end in the history of cars. But the fact that it’s on a Stratus isn’t the worst part. The worst part is that, as of this writing, this shitbox has 39 FUCKING BIDS! The car will sell for at least the current bidding price of $9,350, which is just under four times what I recently paid for my dearly departed, V12, bulletproof Mercedes S600.
The seller says this car was built by some movie studio to use as a “background prop,” but for all the movie executives out there, please take my advice: rather than throwing your money down the toilet, please hit me up through Gotham Dream Cars and rent one of my real Lamborghini’s for a fraction of whatever this cost to build.
Get your vomit bags ready and hit the jump for the single most shameful gallery we’ve ever posted, then tell us what the worst part of this car is.
And if you are dumb enough to drop ten large on this deathtrap, find it on Ebay Here.
