Last time I wrote about a DIY Lamborghini it ended up being a top 10 posts on the MAKE blog in 2008. Now that 2009 is here I thought I might try it again with another DIY Lamborghini. This time it’s a 2001 Lamborghini Diablo VT replica.

This is the workshop he built just so he had the proper space to work on the Lamborghini.

The base is roughly eighteen feet square. Two openings are at the front for a window and a door, one at the side for the main workshop doors. The cement base is six inches thick laid over a hardcore base of bricks, concrete lumps and old engine blocks and heads a neighbour needed rid of. The base was laid in four sections due to its size over a period of two days. Excavation of the hole was done with a digger I borrowed in easter to dig a pond.

The web site even has some DXF files , among other plans, so you can make custom inlet manifold covers to fully Lambify your car. It’s a great project, and I am really glad to see more and more people sharing their builds with the world.
