      someone needs a "worlds greatest dad" mug….Why it was done for himself NOT his kids… Look up "Ken Imhoff Lamborghini build" Old story

  • wow

    did you read the article? only 2700 pounds and 515 horsepower! It weighs less and has more horsepower than the best Countach built…This thing would scream!

    Funny how everyone "knows" how lambos handle.. FYI since day 1 Lambos have been built for top speed not handling.( which is changing with the G replacement in 2014 ) With that being said I can promise you my lp640 rides smoother than my 911s.. This would be considered a "Kit" car and from the pics a very nice kit car. Like some one above posted, if this guy can build a car from scratch, I am sure he wont have any issues with performance/handling.. props to the builder this is an extreme accomplishment !

      Props to you for owning an LP640. My life sucks….

    I'd love to see a 5 minute narrated video with all the details. What an incredible replica!

  • DoctorEnzo

    Can I get a job a Chive? I can re hash old stories also. Utter BS story. First this story is 4 years old news. It was not done for his "kid" either…nonsense….Just look up "Ken Imhoff Lamborghini Countach replica" It was the builders dream not his kids

    "Ken's long journey began 17 years ago when he watched the original Cannonball Run movie. He became so obsessed with the Countach that he decided to spend time and money to create a working replica of the Italian supercar."

    two things my dad wouldnt do:
    1. build me a supercar
    2. break down the walls to get it outside

  • Phil Chivers

    Hit the jackpot with fabrication skills! The man is an artist with metal! Who give a crap if it "only" has a V8. That build needs to be featured in a magazine!

    Why did he start with wood?? I don't get it. BADASS final result though!

  • Paintdiddy

    This is such an old car. It was many years ago. It was for himself not his kid. Still it's sick he built it in his basement. My wife would kill me if I told her I had to break open the foundation

    wow that guy is SICK. good work..

  • Dan K

    What's truly awesome is that the dad was probably more excited building this for his son, than the son actually receiving it. What a cool parent.

    • DoctorEnzo

      But he did not build it for his kid…It was a 17 year build for himself….look up "look up "Ken Imhoff Lamborghini Countach replica" Also is it news when its a 4 year old story?
