If anybody knows the value of hard work and dedication, this elderly Armenian, who goes by the name Matevossian, knows it down to a tee. That’s because for over twenty years, Matevossian worked on a project that he actually just finished a few years ago: a do-it-yourself Maserati replica sports car.

Unlike the DIY Lamborghini we featured a few days ago, this DIY Maserati took Matevossian over 22 years to complete, often changing his design specs as time passed by. This DIY Maserati also has a muffle up on the Lamborghini because it actually comes with parts - the engine, the gearbox, and the rear suspension - from a real 1984 Maserati sports car.

In addition to the genuine Maserati parts used in the car, Matevossian also used a 5-speed manual transmission, Weber carburetor, control unit for the turbines, and an altered WHA front suspension and steering wheel that was taken from a Toyota.

While the car looks nowhere near what a real Maserati looks like these days - or 20 years ago for that matter - Matevossian’s piece of work is nonetheless quite impressive, especially when you consider the time and resources he spent to make his car.

I agree, atleast most of it came out of a genuine Masetati. I wonder how much did he spent to make to make this baby come to life.
