Chinese Man Builds Cheapest Lamborghini Reventon Replica Ever
Posted on September 3, 2012 by Simon
Wang Jian from Jiangsu province, China, crafted his own Lamborghini Reventon from spare parts at the cost of around $10,000 – a mere 0.625% of the price of the real thing. It’s tempting to laugh this off and dismiss it altogether, but there is something wonderfully ambitious, albiet naive, in this young man’s effort to craft his own crude homage to one of the world’s greatest ever sports cars. What the rural Chinese may lack in knowledge, money, or finesse, they more than make up for in homespun ingenuity and determination! This work of art? would not have been out of place amongst the various rural inventions featured in Cai Guo-Qiang’s ‘Peasant Da Vincis’ exhibit in 2010, which was the inaugural show at the then newly opened RockBund Art Museum in Shanghai.
