DIY Lamborghini in China – where there is a will, there is a way


No money, no family connection, low education level, poor working condition… any reason you can think of not living your dream did not prevent these guys to do what they want.


1) A 25 year old mechanic Chen Jinmiao built his first luxurious collection – a working replica of Lamborghini. (You can compare with the original ones here) This junior middle school graduates who lives in a small city in Hunan province in China, has always dreamed of making his own car since childhood. So he downloaded the drawing from the Internet, collected the material from local market, and assembled everything in his working garage in one year, with a cost of $3000.


This version of Lamborghini does have wing doors with a test top speed of eighty mph, even though the front and back wheels and tires are of different types. Chen posted his work-in-progress photos on a Chinese forum and got quite some fans.



2) While Chen might be a fan of an Italian originated luxurious brand, there are some other people who fancy to upgrade a local transportation. A 48-year-old farmer Wu yulu who lives in the outskirt of Beijing, China, has invented a rickshaw pulled by a robot made from his backyard scrap metal. He calls his rickshaw robot his 32nd son and programmed the Android to declare: ‘Wu Yulu is my Dad, I take him out on the town.’



This robot-making obsessed Chinese farmer has since 1986 made 47 robots that perform different functions all from his backyard out of any scrap he could collect, which has cost him debts, burnt house and almost his marriage. But the good news is that he has been invited by the Shanghai World Expo 2010  to display his robots and promote their practical usage.


 

Got amused, inspired? It’s never too late to do-it-yourself for your dream.
