Thai custom shops have a knack of creating convincing supercar replicas.
This latest example is no exception, although it’s being built with the most unlikely of donor cars.
It’s hard to believe, but this wide-bodied Lamborghini Aventador actually started life as a four-door Toyota Crown from the late ‘80s.
If the truth be told, the humble Japanese sedan couldn’t be further from the Italian supercar.
That being said, there’s a very good reason it’s been used as a donor.
Interestingly, the wheelbase of the fourth-gen Crown is 2,730 mm (107.5 inches), which is super close to the 2,700 mm (106.3 inches) Aventador’s wheelbase.
This means the Lambo replica won’t have the awkward dimensions that often plague builds of this ilk.
The Lamborghini Aventador has a mid-mounted powertrain, so the Thai-based custom shop has opted to use a turbocharged version of the Mitsubishi 2.5-liter V6 engine.
The Lambo also uses a radiator from an Isuzu pickup, suspension parts from a Toyota Hilux and Honda Accord, and rear brakes from a BMW 7-Series.
Oh, and it also has the door mechanism from a Nissan NX and wipers from a Chevy pickup.
We’ve got to give Kit Racing their due because despite being a mash-up of parts, they’ve made a great start to the Lamborghini Aventador replica.
For starters, the accuracy of the proportions and bodywork is quite impressive, with its low and wide stance reminiscent of the real deal.
It also sports a widebody kit – seemingly inspired by Liberty Walk – as well as SVJ styling elements at the front.
The Lamborghini Aventador is far from being finished, though.
It still needs windows and a lot of interior work.
But one thing’s for certain – we’ll be keeping a keen eye on the custom shop to check for updates on the build.
