Perhaps the next best thing to a Reventon doesn’t come from Lamborghini’s assembly halls, but straight from the workshop of a 28-year-old farmer in China.


For Jian Wang, his humble farm and modest living couldn’t stop him from owning the highly coveted Lamborghini Reventon — only this time, he built it from scratch. All he needed was an old Volkswagen, a small Reventon model car, and a good background in auto mechanics.

After some major overhauls and a few yanks, the result was close to the real thing, but without the paint and posh interior.


Unfortunately, the Chinese police refused to grant his car the needed license to drive it down the road. So Wang uses his car instead to transport fertilizer around his farm.

And the total cost of his homemade prized possession? About $9,500.
