This bizarre Lamborghini Aventador is made on a poor Pontiac GTO

Take only these bold forms. I remember weeks of anticipation before Lamborghini announced the long-awaited successor to the Murciélago. The supercar was presented at the Geneva Motor Show in February 2011, and I quite enjoyed it. I really wanted it to be a nice car, and I did not leave disappointed: low, wide and aggressive body as all Lamborghini has to have; A naturally aspirated V12 of 6.5 liters and 700 hp, quality assurance of the Volkswagen Group …

Today, six years later, the Aventador stands out as a hero of resistance amid turbocharges and hybrids. It’s a title that suits you. Today I like him even more, especially now that he is in the second half of his career (the longevity of the Lambo models is usually ten years, on average) and is even deprecated by the manufacturer in favor of the Lamborghini Huracán, quasi-twin brother Of the Audi R8. Buy one of them? Hardly: a copy costs $ 450,000 dollars out there. Here, more than $ 3 million in the coupe version, and almost $ 3.5 million in the case of the Aventador Roadster.

Yeah, I also had a hard time believing. This car has been advertised on the DuPont Registry site since last year and for some reason has not yet been sold. You can not believe that no one noticed what a beautiful business this is.

According to the advertiser, who apparently is called “Tony”, this replica Lamborghini Aventador Roadster is made on the structure of a Pontiac GTO. You remember him: the coupe version of the Holden Monaro that was sold in the US between 2004 and 2006, equipped with a V8 small block that could have 5.7 liters and 360 hp or six liters and 405 hp, coupled to an automatic four Gears or six manual. It was a car, even though it was not a retro-looking muscle car, it had the soul of one and it was the Pontiac swan song in the USA.

This explains why the proportions are a little bit different from those of the legitimate Aventador Roadster: the hood is not too long and horizontal in relation to the windshield, and the car is definitely not narrow and too tall, with a glazed area Bizarrely small compared to the rest of the body. The wheels are the same as the Lamborghini Gallardo, and I doubt they are the replicas that people usually put on the Volkswagen Golf GTI Mk5 out there. It did not even cross my mind. And the fact that the wheels seem much smaller in relation to the body than they should be is just one more detail, is not it?

The interior of the Lamborghini Aventador is not exactly the most modern among the current supercar’s, with relatively discrete shapes, rectangular air vents and predominantly dark colors. So, the interior of the Pontiac GTO (that went out of line for 11 years), seen from afar and in a photo of only reasonable quality, even deceives. Especially because it looks like you can see a modified central console with multimedia center and everything. That’s what a whim is …

It was the guys at GTSpirit who found this real gem on wheels and if you have not taken the ironic tone so far, not even with the italicized lyrics, maybe you’re on the wrong website. The fact is that this replica did not seem strange to me, and I soon understood the reason: another fake Aventador was announced in 2012 and apparently the ones responsible for the work are the same: the guys from Z and M Customs, Eagle, Idaho workshop , In the USA, specializing in transforming American sports cars into Lamborghini cars.

In the workshop channel on YouTube there are literally dozens of videos of your creations in detail and working. Most of them retain the original Pontiac GTO engine, which is not a bad thing, but there are a few copies (like it’s for $ 55,000) that get new, zero-kilometer engines.

At least they are real cars that exist, not a coup like the one applied by the Chinese “Mansory Cars”. The company, which we talked about for the first time in 2014, has at least two active sites in which it offers replicas of tubular chassis supercar and V8, V10 and V12 engines at unbelievably low prices. And so far there has never been a real car made by them.
