Overkill: Lamborghini Gallardo Replica Based on a 1996 Dodge Stratus
A Lamborghini Gallardo Replica based on a 1996 Dodge Stratus is up for sale on CraigsList at a cost of $7000. The photos reveal a car that tries very hard to be a Lamborghini Gallardo but doesn’t quite reach comparable standards! According to the seller who also sounds negative towards it, this car was designed, built and used as a movie car in south beach for commercial shoots, background and promotional use.
The front resembles something else, the top is retractable and the rear is not quite what you would call a replicated Lamborghini Gallardo. However, the Tuner FX seats give it a sense of thumbs up moment, that’s it.
This is what the seller had to say;
This is an estate sale and not my personal car. I am representing it for our clients and have only limited knowledge of it.
This is built on a 1996 dodge stratus chassis. That’s what the title says and the motor and the steering wheel support that. The car starts up and runs as you can see in the video. Would I want to go down I-95 at 60 miles an hour in this car???…..absolutely not!! This car was designed, built and used as a movie car in south beach for commercial shoots, background and promotional use.
The exterior of this car is finished in matte black and the interior has yellow accents. At 15 feet away the car …looks amazing, with the removable simulated convertible top. I have no idea how well built this car is and I do not know what it would take to complete it for good drivability.
I don’t believe, in fact I know, this is not a manufactured kit car. This was built and designed in a movie studio.
All lights work; tachometer works; speedometer does not work. Door poppers do work. This vehicle will have to be trailered or shipped to the new owner’s location. I don’t believe this car is safe enough to drive on the streets.
I’m sure many of you are going to have questions. Please call me with any questions or offers. I remind you, this 17 year old technology will require maintenance and tweaking. Don’t expect to have a maintenance free “new car” experience …and working on these old classics is half the fun. Thanks for looking!
