Two Chinese Car Enthusiasts Recreate Their Own 'Lamborghini' From Their Garage

In Beijing, China, car enthusiasts Wang Yu and Li Lintao have created two replicas of the Lamborghini Diablo entirely from their own garage.

Their homemade car is able to reach the top speed of 310km/h. They are currently working on a replica of the T-Rex motorcycle.

Spending up to 5 million yuan (approximately USD 811,899) to buy parts and hire workers, it took them about 6 years to assemble them. Wang and Li have both studied mechanology for nearly a decade abroad.

Their first replica of Lamborghini Diablo was shown at the Beijing International Automobile Exhibition in 2012. Their second Lamborghini replica was sold to Chinese Internet giant Alibaba as a collection piece.
