Chinese Grandpa Creates Mini Electric Lamborghini for his Grandson [w/Video]

How cool is that? A Chinese grandfather wanted to drive his young grandson to school in something better than a bike or trike, so he took to his home garage and built a mini-sized, Lamborghini roadster replica powered by batteries from scrap pieces and a lot of love and personal labor.

Guo, who is a 50-year old farmer from Zhengzhou in central China’s Henan Province, told local news sites that he began his building quest by looking at photos on the internet.

The electric car measures approximately 2 meters long and 1 meter wide (~6.5 feet x 3 feet). It is said to draw energy from five built-in batteries that offer a claimed driving range of around 60 kilometers (37 miles) and a top speed of 40km/h (25mph), though, we’d leave a question mark on both figures, as many sites offer conflicting information on this.

Guo said he worked on the Lamborghini replica for about six months and it cost him around 5,000 Chinese Yuan, which equals about $813 or €585 at today’s exchange rates.
