Chris Steinbacher of B is for Build recently took his custom off-road Lamborghini Huracan to Las Vegas in preparation for the Mint 400 race in December.

Next, they swapped out the original V10 engine for an LS V8 out back, mated to a Graziano 6-speed manual transmission. Read more for two videos, additional pictures and information.

B is for Build started out with a wrecked Lamborghini Huracan, however, but after lots of work, it became the Jumpacan. This off-road beast might be the most extreme yet, as it’s essentially a stripped chassis fitted with an off-road suspension and bracing kit, all powered by an LS V8 engine that sends power to a Graziano transaxle driving the rear wheels. Ford Mustang GT500-sourced rotors and calipers give it maximum stopping power. Read more for a video and additional information.
Brick artists at the LEGO Group managed to build a life-sized replica of the Lamborghini Sián FKP 37 using over 400,000 LEGO Technic pieces. To be more specific, more than 154 different types of LEGO elements were used to ensure the model accurately resembles its real-life counterpart, right down to the most minute details, including the interior. Starting with the exterior, its 1:1 scale frame is covered with a detailed fabric of bespoke hexagonal LEGO Technic elements that interconnect to form an energy-charged shell.

At a parking garage in Hunan, China, one person attempted to grill a kebab skewer using the exhaust flames from a Lamborghini Aventador, but after a few revs, things didn’t turn out exactly as planned. Why? For starters, the LP700-4’s 6.5L V12 engine wasn’t warmed up, so the high temperatures from the high revs caused its cold expansion tank to rupture, spewing red coolant all around the surrounding pavement.
