Wild transformation – can you see what a car this is?

We can reveal that it is not a Lamborghini Diablo. Although it really looks similar.

The car here is actually a new one. Neither the way it should be, nor the platform it is built on. Yes, it has also been 23 years since it was built. So what are you looking at in this article? It's a first-generation Honda NSX that would very much like to look like a Lamborghini Diablo. Funnily enough, the two cars are almost the same age individually. They both have two dores. So the biggest differences are actually the number of horsepower and cylinders. Roughly speaking. Something has 'skipped' The car was built for baseball player Jose Canseco a long time ago, and it must look like a Diablo GT. Which has succeeded, if you ask the Boosted editorial team. But… alas, the Lamborghini's mighty 6-liter V12 engine. Why is not known, but maybe Canseco's promissory note could not be extended to it. Therefore, the car still has Honda's V6s with VTEC and somewhere between 270 and 290 horsepower and manual transmission. On the other hand, apart from the engine, as many original Diablo GT parts have been stowed away for the project as possible. Well looked after In the eBay ad, the seller writes that the car has changed hands a few times since Jose Canseco had it built. In the intervening time, it has, among other things, been repainted. However, there are indications that the owners have taken good care of the car. The service book should have been filled with stamps. So who would want to own such a replica? Well, we don't know. But the car has already found a new owner. To that extent, the person has been allowed to pay for some. The final bid was 126,100 dollars, corresponding to DKK 892,000. In the 11 years between 1990 and 2001, when the Diablo was in production, Lamborghini actually built just 2,884 examples. 80 of them were GT models. In comparison , Lamborghini built 2,539 cars during the first quarter of 2022. A record for the Italians.
