The Chinese have done it again, or in this case, a certain Chinese fellow has provided us with even more ammunition to make light of their copycat-loving nature. Chen Jinmiao may not have the abundant resources Chinese automakers have, but one thing’s for sure: the man has no shortage in resourcefulness.

Using just about every piece of crap he could find, Jinmiao built his own Lamborghini from the ground up. Now, the car doesn’t look anywhere near one of Sant’Agata’s finest, but with only about $3,000 to spare, Jinmiao certainly made the most out of it.

We’re going to give him an A+ for the time and effort he put to piece together his "Legoborghini", even outfitting it with its own running engine that’s capable of producing a staggering top speed of around 60 mph. Sarcasm aside, that doesn’t even come remotely close to the performance of true Lambos, but like we said, Jinmiao didn’t exactly have a fountain of resources to tap into.

And he did to this all by his lonesome, which still warrants a round of applause from us.

Kirby’s first exposure into the world of automobiles happened when he caught Knight Rider on television as a five-year old boy. David Hasselhoff didn’t leave much of an impression on him (that happened later on in Baywatch), but KITT certainly did. To this day, Kirby remains convinced that he will one day own a car with the same ‘spirit’ as the original KITT (not the 2008 monstrosity). He doesn't know when that will be, but until then, he’s committed to expressing his love for KITT, and all cars for that matter, here at TopSpeed.  Read More

Chinese are really great, copycons. But still I applaud their work, it’s really great. They can even make the same one but with added features.

I never knew that lamborghini can be copied. Am sure if this man had some budget. I think it can almost copied everything in lamborghini.
