One glance at this Lamborghini Countach and the slightly off proportions will tell you it’s not a real Lambo. You will be absolutely sure that it is a fake Lambo once it drives into the water and floats around the lake. The amphibious Lambo is for sale right now, meaning the land and sea monstrosity can be yours.
It might make you the coolest guy at the fishing hole. The car/boat is available for $27,000, a raging barging for a real Lambo but who knows about this custom built concoction. It’s available for £18,995 via eBay UK and the seller says that the build cost was horrendous, I am sure it was.
The car started life as a replica built on a tube chassis. The builder clams that the body panels are modeled from a real Contach 5000QV so perhaps the proportions are a bit more accurate than they look on some images. The car is affectionately known as the Amphiborghini and was made by Mike Ryan of the SeaRoader Amphibious Vehicles firm in England. This same firm made amphibious cars for Top Gear. It’s unclear exactly what power plant the car uses.
