This most certainly isn’t the first Lamborghini Aventador knockoff, but it’s the first one we’ve seen that started its life as a four-door Honda Accord. Built by Executive Modcar Trendz, the sedan’s body was completely stripped and replaced with custom fiberglass pieces, with some quirks. The roof is much higher and the engine cover as well as decklid descend at a much steeper angle that its real-life supercar counterpart. Read more for a video, additional pictures and information.

Think of the Lamborghini Vega as a smaller, more high-tech version of the Huracán, with a shorter wheelbase, minimal overhangs and a large panoramic roof. Since the Huracán maintains the 5.2 L naturally aspirated Audi/Lamborghini V10 engine from the Gallardo, tuned to generate a maximum power output of 610 PS (449 kW; 602 hp) in a mid-engined configuration, it’s safe to say that the Vega will have a similar, possibly hybrid, drivetrain.

Now that we know Lamborghini is making hybrid versions of the Aventador and Huracan models, rumors are now swirling about the LB48H, also known as the Terzo Millennio. It will allegedly be priced around $3-million and boast glow-in-the-dark technology that’s overlaid onto its carbon fiber shell. Instead of batteries, supercapacitors may power the vehicle, due to their fast charge and discharge ability, in which the automaker is co-developing with MIT researchers. These supercapacitors have been developed to simultaneously capture and release energy to give the vehicle an increase in performance, without depending on chemical reactions.

Have $22,500 and want a Lamborghini Aventador replica that might be able to fool someone who knows absolutely nothing about cars? If so, then this Pontiac GTO-based creation should do the trick. Instead of the 690 hp 6.5-liter V12 engine found in the real Aventador, this 2004 Pontiac GTO frame / body comes with the original 5.7L V8 drivetrain and electronics as well as a fake mid-engine setup, since its motor actually sits up front.

When Lamborghini Gallardo meets 2007 Ford Mustang and then combined into a single vehicle, this is the result. Tractorri Custom Coupe spent $700,000 on this one-of-a-kind build for the SEMA show years ago to pay tribute to Lamborghini’s beginnings as a tractor manufacturer. Despite looking like a Mustang, the bodywork is completely custom, while using Porsche 911 Turbo turn signals, steel fender flares, rocker moldings, as well as Lamborghini Gallardo taillights.

The Lamborghini Urus is farily new, but even without an all-electric drivetrain, the SUV can hold its own against the Tesla Model X P100D. To prove this, DragTimes took these two vehicles to Palm Beach International Raceway and raced down the strip four times. Just to recap, the Urus is powered by a twin-turbocharged 4.0L V8 producing 641 hp and 627 lb-ft of torque, ated to an electro-hydraulically controlled 8-speed automatic transmission, enabling it to hit 62mph in just 3.6 seconds, while topping out at 190 mph.

The SC18 is a one-off, street-legal, track-ready mid-engine supercar developed by Lamborghini’s Squadra Corse racing division at the request of an unnamed client. It appears to be based on the Aventador, but with a host of bespoke carbon fiber bodywork, including hood, fenders, fins, air scoops, as well as a massive carbon fiber wing out back with three different mechanical adjustment points. It draws power from a 6.5L V12 generating 770 horsepower at 8500 RPM and 531 lb-ft. of torque at 6750 RPM, enabling it to go from 0-62 mph in a mere 2.8-seconds. Inside, you’ll find black Alacantara upholstered carbon fiber bucket and red contrast stitching. Read more for another video, additional pictures and information.
Danton Arts Kustoms wanted to celebrate the Lamborghini Espada’s 50th anniversary, but not with a simple restoration, but rather, transforming one into a custom hot rod. On the outside, they started by chopping it, removing body panels, and then adding 19-inch front / 20-inch rear wheels, wrapped in Michelin tires. Read more for additional pictures and information.
The Lamborghini Urus isn’t the most eco-friendly car, or at least compared to the Tesla Model X, but it sure is quick. Broosk, owner of the DragTimes YouTube channel, recently created a video showing the SUV accelerating from 0-60 mph in a hair-splitting time of 2.93 seconds, making it a full 0.5-seconds faster than Lamborghini’s official figure.

Auto enthusiasts from Iran spent approximately 4-years reverse engineering a Lamborghini Murcielago SV to create a near perfect replica. Its chassis is based on the one developed by Lamborghini and recreated using the automaker’s original data, while power comes from a Hyundai-sourced 3.8-liter Lambda V6 that can reportedly ‘easily reach’ speeds in excess of 174 mph.
