Ken Imhoff first debuted his Lamborghini Countach replica back in 2008, a vehicle that took him 17-years to complete in the basement workshop of his Eagle, Wisconsin home. Unlike other replicas, this one was built from scratch, which meant forming the body and building the engine, the latter of which is a Ford 351 Cleveland V8 engine making 514 hp at 6800RPM, mated to a 5-speed ZF manual transmission.
Other features include the C4 Corvette suspension / brakes and authentic Lamborghini taillights, parking lights, windshield as well as badges. Sure, building the Lamborghini Countach replica was tough, but getting it out of his basement was an even tougher task. In the end, he hired a contractor to tear down a wall of his basement and excavate the surrounding area so a ramp could be fitted. It could be yours if you meet the reserve on his eBay auction, which is currently at $100,100 USD. More information here.

He had originally decided to sell the vehicle because it reminded him of all that was wrong with his life. A pastor in Wisconsin got a hold of him and said that maybe that’s not what you want to do with this. Maybe this can really be used to reach guy,” said Doug Redford, pastor of Men’s Ministry at Ada Bible Church.
