Wang Jian, 28, has always loved sports cars and dreamed of owning his own supercar. Despite being born into a farming family in China’s rural eastern Jiangsu province, at 16 he started working as a mechanic because of his passion for cars.
Recently he has been working on making his dream of owning a supercar become a reality. Knowing that it was highly unlikely that he would ever be able their extortionate pricetags, Jian had a different idea!
This farmers son, has made his own replica, modeled on the Lamborghini Reventon (of which it is believed there are only 21 models existing) using a second hand Nissan van and a Volkswagen.
The Lamborghini Reventon costs over £1m but Jian’s replica cost just £6,000 and despite the fact that it still needs a little work (the headlights and windshield are still missing) it can reach top speeds of 160mph!!
Obviously there are numerous differences between the super-expensive supercar and Jian’s homemade replica, but you’ve got to admit it’s a pretty awesome attempt!
At the moment however, Jian uses his ‘Lamborghini’ to shuttle fertilizer around his parent’s farm, because authorities say that it shouldn’t be driven on the roads yet.
Jian said: “I’ve always loved sports cars since I was a child…After growing up, I thought of making my own when I had the circumstances in life and the knowledge…In order to realize this dream, I struggled to learn about this. When I had the right circumstances and the time, I assembled it myself and realized my dream.”
