What would you do if you are 28 years old and just spent 1800 pounds on your new ride, a 2002 Fiat Uno?

Well, Edimar Souza Goulart took another 600 pounds and spent 12 months in his shed to transform the Uno-shaped car into a Lamborghini-ish-shaped car.

He always loved sports cars and putting together this car was not only a pastime but the fulfilment of his dream.

But the project is not finished yet. The interior still comes with the original Uno design but Goulart is keen to optimize his creation according to his own ideas.

He even gave the car a lovingly 'Aventador' lettering on the back of the car and a self-created Bull-badge at the front.

Locals facetiously call the car the 'Lamborghuno'.

But it is not only a joke. Goulart is currently waiting for the Department of Transport to approve his design and allow him to drive the car legally on public roads.

You can watch an interview with Edimar Souza Goulart in portuguese language here:

This idea came from a childhood dream of mine to have a sports car; I admire them a lot.

This is what Goulart said in the video:

"This idea came from a childhood dream of mine to have a sports car; I admire them a lot. I couldn't afford it, so I battled, worked hard and was able to buy an Uno. I've always liked drawing, I've been drawing since I was a kid, so I decided to draw some designs. I drew a wing, drew the bumper, but then I saw I wasn't too good. So I got the idea to cut my Uno and make a sports car. That was when I got my bricklayer's Makita, cut it, and filled with styrofoam and acrylic mass, made the art... and that's what you're seeing today."

  • Nice to see this!

    And as a signal of respect, the crew of Motorgrid Brasil (a group that organizes super car meetings between the owners) decided to gave to this guy a ride in a real Aventador during the event trip!

    • Indeed. I follow them for a long time now on social media and this isn't something new from them, since one of the acts of the club on their PEA (the meetings name) are the organization of food donation for charity and those events always have a...

  • I'd still rather look at this inquisitively than any rubbish hanging up in a "modern art" museum. I give the guy credit for the work he put into it, not a bad job really. Think of how he had to measure everything and build it and all that. He loves Lambos that much to spend all that time and effort working on this. Cool article!

  • It looks kind of awful, but also impressively good at the same time.

    • If I would have done it, you couldn't even tell that it's a car. I think he did a great job even if it looks a bit funny.
