While most of us dream about one of these!
You could be
We show you how to build the body from scratch!
With just some simple hand tools and our "PLANS"
you can build a Countach body under $1000.
What would you say if we showed you how you can be driving a Lamborghini Countach replica for under $7000
Sounds to good to be true well its not !

Here are some questions that you
might have and the answers?
Did you build the body…or is it a kit?
YES! I built the body from scratch using the plans that you can buy. It took me 3 weeks to get the body made and it cost me just under $1000. The body is all hand made.
How hard is it making the chassis?
Well I took the easy option and built the car using the VW chassis and the sub-frame which I built from the plans supplied. I wanted to have the car on the road as quickly as possible. The plans also give you an option to build a space frame chassis.
What type of engine did you end up using?
Since I was building the car on a VW chassis I used a 2 litter V6 Nissan motor. I had to buy a adaptor plate and that was it.
Why the VW chassis?
The VW chassis is a very old and safe option no matter where you are in the world. Building the car is much easier and quicker with the vw chassis not to mention cheaper. If you decided to build the space frame chassis I would have to under go to many tests and it is more difficult to get the car registered. (please contact your local road authorities for these guidelines)
How long did the car take to finish?
I worked on the car only on the weekends and I had it finished in 14 month.
What was the hardest part to build in the car?
Working on the doors was the most difficult part but with the plans explaining what hinges to use and how to cut the out made it more easy to understand how the doors actually work.
So what do i get in the PLAN package?
You get body plans, free video and construction manual.
Start building NOW!
After getting the plans it was time
to start building the timber frame
that will hold the timber body formers.
In between the wooden formers
I placed some long timber section
to keep the distance between the
I used the cheapest foam I could
find which was Polyurethane, cutting out pieces that fitted between the wooden formers I secured them in
using wood screws.
All the gaps we had left after covering
the formers with foam have to get filled.
I used normal plaster which you use for
Using a corse wood file I started shaping the body. You have to take your time and be very careful, as the foam is very soft. The only harder portions of the body so far are the plaster filled gaps, which are between
Once I got the body to a rough shape that I was happy with it was time to cover the whole body with a thin layer of plaster. This allowed me to shape the body with much more detail and also allowed me to use a cheaper resin with out burning the foam as we covered it with plaster. Don't think that I'm a rocket scientist I got all this information with the plans.
Here you can see better the rear end of the car being covered with a thin layer of plaster.
The rear air vents taking shape.
I built a platform all around the car so I
can stand on it and walk all around the
car making live much easier. It also came in handy when shaping the flares I could mount the wheels in position to get the right site flare and shape. The flares where the hardest to get even and looking right. I suggest looking at photos of the real car and copy the shape.
This is the other side of the car, I'm building up the flare with foam and plaster.
The whole car was successfully covered with plaster and shaped as even and close to the real thing as I could. Then the car was covered with 4 layers of fibreglass cloth and resin. Each layer was left to cure overnight and rubbed back with coarse sandpaper before the next layer applied. I took extra care when applying the last layer of cloth
not to get any air bubbles and weave sticking up from the body. After the last layer was cured very carefully
the body was sanded back and any imperfections and weave showing was filled with automotive body filler what we call "BOG". This product bonds with fibreglass extremely well as it is epoxy based.
The donor car arrives a 1972 Type 3 VW.
I'm removing the VW body .
I put the body over the chassis to see what it looks like and to see where we can glass the body to the frame.
Wheels are bolted on and some cheap taillight just sticky taped on. As you can see there are no doors yet.
It took some time to cut out the doors. The door ledges I made out of foam then covered with fibreglass. I had taken my time to make sure the doors shut properly.
The car was fitted with a Nissan 2 litter V6 motor and an adaptor plate to bolt on to the VW transaxle. When the wiring was done and the car was structurally completed it was inspected by an Engineer and "APPROVED" YESSSSSSS!
Hombre construye réplica de Lamborghini dentro de su casa
He aquí alguien digno de admiración.
Este hombre, quien siempre tuvo el sueño de poseer un Lamborghini Countach después de ver la película Cannonball Run (bastante divertida por cierto), decidió hacer lo que cualquier person con falta de una cuenta de millones de dólares, pero con el entusiasmo y el conocimiento necesario haría: Construir una réplica.
Y cuando decimos réplica, hablamos de que este hombre midió al milímetro el modelo original, y a puro pulso de mano y con herramientas improvisadas, poco a poco formó el chasis del vehículo.
Sin embargo, este no es solo un auto que parece un Lamborghini Countach, sino que se comporta como uno, ya que adentro posee un motor V8 de 351 pulgadas cúbicas con una transmisión ZF-25 de 5 velocidades y todo tipo de trucos de rendimiento.
Pero he aquí lo mas asombroso: Este hombre duró 10 años en construir esta obra de arte poco a poco en el garaje de su casa, y cuando por fin terminó notó que no lo podía sacar tan fácilmente, por lo que tuvo que recurrir a una manera creativa de sacarlo.
No dejen de ver todas las fotos en la página a continuación, que son dignas de todo hacker de vehículos.

Réplica del Lamborghini Reventón sobre un Pontiac Fiero
SandMan 4 de agosto de 2008 29 comentarios
No se que tendrá el Pontiac Fiero, pero es una de las bases más usadas para construir réplicas de coches carísimos e inalcanzables para la mayoría de los mortales. Tal vez sea que es de los pocos coches baratos con el motor en posición central. Quien sabe.
El caso es que un canadiense de nombre Woody se ha aventurado en la titánica tarea de convertir su Pontiac Fiero de 1987 en un señor Lamborghini Reventón. Y todo con sus manitas, que tiene más mérito la cosa. A ver como consigue reproducir ese interior tan futurista...
Y no se conformará con el raquítico motor 2.5 L Tech IV I4, sino que le montará, atención, un motor GM V8 5.7 Biturbo de nosesabecuantos caballos. Como no apriete bien los tornillos, en el primer pisotón se queda con el chasis en las manos.

yp vi un video de como asian un Acura NXF o NFS ( o what ever) que le transformaban la carroceria en Ferrari FXX, es a base de moldes, de los cuales se acomodan al tama~no del carro, y luego se mandan hacer con cualquiera que pueda trabajar la fibra de vidrio.
