This next car came in as a tip from Cory who said “NOT A FIERO”. But, it’s a kit-car Lambo? How could it not be a Fiero? Maybe a Beetle? No…it is a Saturn Sky Redline (the corporate cousin to the Pontiac Solstice GXP) that has been somehow converted into a fake Gallardo. I hate […]
The third generation of Audi’s S6 platform is known for having a V10 engine that shares some similarities with Lamborghini’s V10 that lived in the Gallardo. The V10 is simultaneously the best thing about the C6 generation Audi A6 and the worst. The best because everybody needs a V10 and the worst because you might spend more to maintain it than Caltrans spends to maintain the 405 freeway. Today’s S6 is offered for a price that is somehow lower than the slammed suspension. Find this 2008 Audi S6 V10 offered for $8999 in New York, NY via craigslist. Tip from Cory.
With all of the hubbub, clamor, and uproar about fake news and fact checking these days, you’d think that eBay Motors would have a dedicated fact checking team of experts checking facts and censoring bad actors in the automotive world. But here we’ve got a car listed as a Lamborghini Countach that should be as fact checked as a Trump tweet that came via Hunter Biden’s laptop connected through Hillary’s personal wifi server. This thing should come with a “some or all of the content shared in this listing is disputed and might be misleading.”…but…despite the warning…I love it. It has a Chevy V8 and a scissor doors and some hideous wheels — a great combo. Find this 1975 Lamborghini Countach Pontiac Fiero custom kit offered for $14,900 in Sarasota, FL via eBay.
Car guys will talk about paint in terms of the distance from which the paint looks good, like a “ten footer” or a “fifty footer”…but with custom Lambo/Ferrari/Fiero kit cars, I like to think of them in terms of the age of the oldest person this would trick into thinking it is a real Lambo/Ferrari/E-Type […]
It is kit car Sunday here at DT! We have a duo of gull-wing cars for your reading enjoyment. First up is real mongrel of a vehicle that started life as a 1987 Fiero. The chassis was stretched and then fitted with a pretty convincing Diablo VT body kit, proper fitting Compomotive wheels, and a […]
You know you want this. Don’t try and hide behind some kind of self righteous wall of excuses about the environment, your ability get to work on time, or how much you’ll spend on maintenance because it really doesn’t matter AND I’M NOT BUYING IT. YOU WANT A LAMBORGHINI V10 POWERED SUPER SEDAN…EVERYBODY WHO CAN […]
The Lamborghini Countach is widely considered a 1980’s super car icon and clean examples now command upwards of a quarter of a million dollars. What are your options if you have a DT budget level and have the fever for Lambo doors and spaceship-like looks? The answer is found in plain sight with today’s Euro […]
“Who knows what evil lurks in the hearts of men? The Shadow knows…” Those are the words that popped into my head when I saw this next car…and it is a scary looking thing…but the more I look at it…the more I like it. I must be running a fever or maybe I need more […]
A huge engine in a medium size car is a formula that never seems to get tired. With the advent of modern turbo set ups, the old adage of there is no replacement for displacement is being put to the real test though. Back in the mid 2000s, Audi and BMW both deemed that a […]
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 […]
