How to drive a Lamborghini Countach cheaply? Quite simply by creating your own model, based on a Hyundai and with a Lexus engine!

To drive a Lamborghini Countach without getting into debt over 4 generations, a Thai found the solution: make a Lamborghini replica based on a Hyundai and with a Lexus engine!

It is the famous Thai actor and singer Beam, whose real name is Kawee Tanjararak, who owns this incredible line.

Real trompe-l’oeil

From a distance, the difference with the original model is not visible. The fender flares and the iconic exterior deceive the eye. On the other hand, on the technical side, it has nothing to do with it. There is indeed a Hyundai chassis with a special frame supporting an original Lexus twin-turbo V8 engine. Subaru transmission and Nissan suspensions (Skyline R32) even complete the range!

Obviously, with such a patchwork of parts, it is logical to wonder about the reliability offered by such a vehicle. And precisely, the day before the shooting of the video, the front shock absorbers gave way. Worse, the very day of the test, the normally repaired shock absorber cracked again!
