How Did a Chinese Truck Driver Manage to Build His Own DIY Lamborghini?

25-year-old Chen Jinmiao of rural China dreamt of one day owning his own Lamborghini. But the truth is, it was highly unlikely he would ever be able to afford one.

Via Daily Mail:

"Chen is more than happy with his replica of the famous Italian sports marque - even if its 60 mph top speed is some 150mph behind the real thing.

Chen, of Binzhou in Hunan province, said: 'I downloaded the drawings from the internet, then bought the materials from the market.'

His bright yellow car even has the original's signature scissor doors.

But Chen, who has no formal engineering training, has yet to hear whether he will be allowed to drive his 'baby Lambo' on public roads."

it says above: "even if its 60 mph top speed is some 150mph behind the real thing."

though for some reason the headline of the daily mail article says 80mph, while within the actual article it says 60mph
