2006 Lamborghini Murcielago Replica Project

An oft repeated story is that the tractor manufacturer Lamborghini started building fast exotics because Enzo Ferrari would not build a special car for Mr. Ferruccio Lamborghini. People do the strangest things when motivated to succeed. Perhaps the builder of this next thing wanted a Lamborghini, but didn't want to pay the crazy premium for a modern exotic or perhaps he wanted to besmirch the good name of Lamborghini...either way, this thing makes a statement.  Find this  2006 Lamborghini Murcielago Replica Project offered for $12,000 near Atlanta, GA via craigslist. Tip from Richard.



 This car was built last year by a former owner who slapped some kind of Murcielago kit car body onto a 1998 Trans Am body.  It doesn't sound very nice when I put it that way.  Lemme try again. This custom started with a well seasoned Pontiac Firebird TransAm and has been transformed into a pretty convincing looking Lamborghini Murciélago


The seller doesn't specificy the OEM of the kit parts -- but it is probably one of a handful listed over here on kitcarlist.com.  The transam maintains its front-engine, rear-drive setup, which is unfortunate, because a mid-engine kit would be so much cooler.

    2. See, however, Mythbusters episode 113

      You can’t polish poop. BUSTED

      Adam and Jamie visited a zoo to obtain a variety of feces to try to polish. They tried to pick the most polishable candidates and baked them to remove the moisture. Adam tried to shine his poop with a buffing wheel, while Jamie reasoned that using a wax polish would result in a shine. Adam eventually sought the advice of an outside expert, who showed him that it was possible to apply a shine to dirt with a tedious technique. Applying this technique, Adam and Jamie were able to obtain very polished poop without using any foreign materials like polish.

  2. I think seller was mistaken... he meant to say, "My gain is your loss."

  3. Nothing generates confidence in a project like taking it off the hands of someone who got it wrapped before they got it running.

  7. I think that wrap is designed to be stealthy or hurt your eyes if you go to deep in the details..ugly as sin under the hood with wires to no where only to be matched by the stock GM Plastic interior that is cheap & fugly also.
