Car mad Wang Jian couldn't afford to buy the 250,000 GBP supercar of his dreams - so he built his own Lambor-tweenie made up of spare parts of of motors with more humble pedigrees.
Mechanic Jian - from Siyang, Jiangsu province, eastern China - borrowed bits from scrapped motors to build up his Lambo replica.
"It's a mixture between a Toyota and lots of other bits of other cars I found. I could never afford the real thing so I'm happy with this for the moment," said Jian, who even managed to recreate the distinctive Lamborghini up and over doors.
"I think it's more adaptable than a Lamborghini, though. The other week I used it to carry some fertiliser to a friend's farm so it's a pretty good tractor too," said Jian.
Unlike the 200mph original, Jian's version has a top speed of just 100mph - which is quite fast enough for his long suffering wife Lin, who's seen him blow more than 6,000 GBP on the creation.
"I went in it once an it scared the life out of me. I didn't stop shaking to a week," she said.
