Lamborghini Countach Hand Built In Man’s Basement

As car enthusiasts, we’ve always dreamed of one day adding a Lamborghini to our car collection. Fellow auto enthusiast Ken Imhoff shared the same thought, and decided to take matters into his own hands building his very own Lamborghini Countach.

This grueling process took Imhoff over 17 years to complete, and sees a chassis that was shaped from plywood along with wheels that were custom made within a machine shop. Now the vehicle was completed in 2008, but the fact that Ken decided to build this car in his basement brought about another issue. How exactly do you get a car that was built in your basement onto the streets? How about just excavating? That’s exactly what Ken decided do. The end result is actually quite impressive.
