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.
