Just to show that not all Fauxborghinis are Fieroborghinis, we've got another tube-frame, turbo Buick V6-powered machine, from way up north in Alberta. The engine has a claimed 400 horses, feeding a modified Audi transaxle… but, sadly, it appears that only two of the wheels are being driven. We can't help but think that it would have been more fun to put some kind of Big Daddy Roth-style bubble-canopy body on a setup like this, but the world prefers Lambos!

Well first of all I think if you can build a functioning car, you win. We can sit here and pick it apart all day but I never built a car. I've disassembled a few and successfully reassembled one, sorta. It's a hell of a lot harder than it looks. If it doesn't look exactly like what it's supposed to or the proportions are off, it doesn't matter. Because somebody built the thing and that makes it cool.
