This Lamborghini Gallardo Spyder is an incredibly successful replica
Admit that you would have thought it was a real one!
Sometimes, the world of replica cars has some very nice surprises in store for us. This is the case of this replica of a Lamborghini Gallardo Spyder which is actually a simple Mitsubishi Eclipse Spyder. This project comes from the Wheelers Builders and took more than a year of work, but it was worth it.
At first glance, it is extremely difficult if not almost impossible to detect that it is actually a replica. The quality of the creation is remarkable, with the proportions at the front being just right and the body assembly perfectly regular with minor gaps. Even for fans of the brand, everything suggests that this is a true Gallardo.
The project started with the choice of the original car. After a long observation of the Gallardo's design, the team decided to go for an Eclipse. The Eclipse's monocoque bodywork was then modified to fit the Gallardo. Under the bonnet is a 3.0-litre V6 that sends its power to the front wheels. So mechanically speaking, it has almost nothing in common with the supercar.
The interior is the only visible element that allows you to see the trickery. In fact, the interior offers four seats here and not two as on the Gallardo. But a nice job has also been done. Quilted leather has been added to the seats as well as on the door panels. Even the turn signals sticks have been changed for an optimal resemblance! In the end, only the engine noise and the strange rear proportions will betray this sublime replica.
