Everyone wants a supercar, but not everyone has tens of millions of pesos to blow on one car.
Now, there's a way: you can buy this "Lamborghini" for only Php 410,000! It even comes with a proper manual transmission!
Obviously it's not an actual Lamborghini.
Instead, the sports car listed for sale is actually a second-generation (SW20) Toyota MR2, but has been heavily modified to look like a Lamborghini... if you don't have 20/20 vision.
As for what model, we don’t actually know. But it does somewhat resemble the Murcielago in front with its bumper and fixed headlights. Now, let’s not get started about the rear, but those do look like taillights from a 2nd generation Mitsubishi Eclipse albeit with customized LED patterns.
Full details regarding the vehicle weren’t really disclosed and no interior photos were provided, but the ad claims that the car has a ‘twin-turbo engine’, is registered, and cost the owner around Php 430,000 to modify.
The car has also only done 70,000 km and drives well with no problems whatsoever according to the owner. As to how true some of these are, especially the twin-turbo engine, we aren’t sure. But, he did say you can bring your own mechanic to check it out.
Despite it’s trying hard to look like a Lamborghini, the kit does appear to have been built fairly well – at least from the photos. All the body parts are painted in the same shade of gray, and it still looks shiny. Let’s face it, it could have been done with a lot less effort and come out looking worse.
It's not the first time we've seen someone try to clone an Italian supercar using a Toyota MR2. A few years ago, a Spanish outfit was nabbed for manufacturing fake Ferrari F430s.
