Anyone in the market for a Lamborghini Diablo will likely have to pay somewhere in the vicinity of $200,000 – and that’s pretty much a best case scenario.
You could, however, pay a lot less, although you’d have to be OK with driving something that looks like the real thing, but isn’t.
Still with us? Great, because here’s a replica of a 2001 Diablo 6.0 priced at $79,999 and powered by a 300 HP Corvette V8.
While the real Diablo 6.0 is a V12-powered beast, this replica, up for grabs on Craigslist, has four fewer cylinders, a Porsche G50 5-speed manual gearbox, full tube chassis, fiberglass body, Corvette brakes, 18-inch replica wheels, a performance clutch, power windows and power steering.
The seller says that if this car was real, it would cost more than $350,000 and that they invested over $100,000 in just the parts alone, not to mention the 2,000 hours it took to build the car.
They also mention that you can park this car anywhere and nobody is going to be able to tell the difference between it and the real 2001 Diablo 6.0.
We have to admit, it’s an impressive build, although connoisseurs should be able to tell something’s up, especially if they really focus on the quality of the interior. A good test would be to take it to a Lamborghini car meet and see what Lambo owners think. If you can first bring yourself to part with $80k for a replica, that is.
