Unfortunately there isn’t any information on the maker of this car, but the pictures are cool. If anyone knows more about this build, please post it in the comments and I will update the entry. If you can’t afford a Lambo, make it!

Update:
Apparently the car, called the “Woodighini” was made by a 33 year old Canadian named “Woody”. You can read more about the project on the AutoBlog website. Also, there is a great interview that can be found on the Motor Foot Blog. A big Thank You goes to JohnW for sending in the links!

    ..if the maker thinks a carburetted twin-turbo is a good idea.

    It’s interesting that Make should post this on Tuesday. Yesterday I found my October 2008 issue of Wood Magazine in my mailbox with a wood gullwing door sports car on the cover and a nice, hefty article about it’s build inside. Called “Spliter” it features a 700 HP engine and a cassis, suspension, body, seats, wheels made almost entirely out of wood.

    Awesome!

      @Ken

      It looks awesome, but I am NOT going 240mph in a car made of wood!

    I recall back in the late eighties when I was working in an auto body shop in Streetsville (Mississauga) Ontario, there was a guy who built a Lambo using a Fiero chassis, and a very blown out 350 engine, body was made of fiberglass. It was the very cool looking. He eventually died of lung cancer from not using a mask while sanding and prepping the car for paint. Anyway nice car.

    Nice build on the “Lamborghinish” looking car. Kind of looks like he took some styling cues from the Reventon as well as from the Contach. Overall, I think the guy that built this did a great job. I guess his philosophy was if he could buy one, he might as well build one himself especially if he had the technical knowledge…and a lot of time on his hands.

    Nice, but why choose the standard Lamborghini when you are building it from scratch.

    I would much rather go for the Bravo:

      I personally like the Lamborghini Canto. Although, with the amount of work going into such a project, I would design something from scratch and not copy anything.
