Chinese Man Builds 59-mph, Mini-Lamborghini for Grandson

We’ve seen some pretty outlandish attempts at supercar replicas– many with varying results. We’ve also seen some very cool projects where a clever home mechanic builds a very special scale model replica sportscar for his kid. This seems to be the combination of the two categories, as a Chinese man has built a miniature Lamborghini replica for his grandson to drive to school.

His name his Guo and is in his fifties, and is apparently quite creative. Guo spent six months building the car, using photos he found online. It has five batteries, which allows the car to get up to a top speed of 96 km/h (59.6 mph). It even has a horn, rear-view mirror, reverse gear and a stereo system.

For anyone that grew up without a Power Wheels, this must be doubly infuriating. We apologize that we don’t have more images or video of this wild ride, but we’ll be sure to post them if they become available. See the one grainy photo that we do have below:
