This ‘Jeeporghini’ looks like Batman’s Tumbler crammed into a supercar

The Jeeporghini is pictured.

For what is ultimately a supercar company, Lamborghini has a strong connection to the SUV through its famed LM002 in the 1980s.

In 2018, the company released its second SUV, the Urus, which is based on an Audi Q8.

But Illinois man Ricky Irizarry wanted to take another crack at building a Lambo 4×4 (and we reckon it looks a bit like Batman’s Tumbler).

Dubbed the ‘Jeeporghini’, the project started out in life as a Jeep Liberty.

However, it’s now been hacked up to wear a replica 1999 Lamborghini Diablo Roadster body.

Yes, a replica body – no Diablos were harmed in the making of this car.

With the two cars actually having a fairly similar wheelbase, it actually makes the body swap easier than you’d think.

Irizarry reportedly hopes to drive the creation daily as well, so there’s every chance it’ll retain the standard Jeep engine, rather than gain a Lambo V12.

Still this Jeeporghini should be a great thing to behold hitting the mud when the project is finished.

We’ll definitely be staying tuned to how Irizarry progresses with it!

In other supercar mods, a company in Wales, Electric Classic Cars, has turned a Ferrari Tessarossa into an EV… sort of (read more about it here).

The team took a classic 1980s Ferrari Testarossa, removed the V12 engine and fit it with the electric powertrain from a Tesla Model S.

This “Teslarossa” is not only more efficient but it’s also quicker, smoother, quieter and cheaper to run – all while looking just as good.

It may not be a move some purists will agree with but in the long run, this might be the only way we can enjoy classic supercars.
