And yeah, that Bicolore is sold and 458 crashed. All he has now is the CGTV8 and LP700.
I know who is the owner of the Sesto Elemento replica. But I always thought that this guy and the LP700 guy are brothers. Sorry for the confusion.

Coming to the third, it seems heck lot short to be a Gallardo. Maybe its the angle, the brake callipers and the dash matches, but hey, it's DC.

Reliable sources still says it's a Gallardo itself, now for someone to come up with a video or engine bay shots!

Could it be another replica based on a Nano. Wasn't the Veyron replica based on the Nano too? Certainly looks too small to be an actual Lambo.

Yea, but it doesn't look as puny either. From the rear, the engine area looks well packed and as I said, the dash and wheels to match. It's just the stance that is not right, too tall? too short?

Nope man, I am told this is wayyyy more louder than a Gallardo itself. So must be based on a LP560.

BTW Video also coming soon

I felt the same after viewing the above posted pictures.
The car looks too stubby to have a Lamborghini underneath or it could simply be the camera angle.
If it's not based on an actual Lambo then bravo!
Also, What is that weird red capped thing at the rear bottom end? Part of the engine?

Pretty sure its not based on the Donor LP560,just look at the side profile,it looks tacky and disproportionate for a original Lambo,lt looks as if its based on some sedan.

A very reliable source has just confirmed that the donor car is indeed a LP560.

I am curious, Is such a modification even legal? Unless properly endorsed by the RTO authorities can you actually change the complete visual and physical dimensions of the car and get away with it?

Also what about design copyrights from Lamborghini,won't the owner and DC be in trouble for copying the design or is this done by permission from Lamborghini?

That's just wrong! Why would he want to completely change an LP560 and make it a Sesto Elemento?
IMO it hasn't even been done well, its just too stubby from the back and the red thing just does not sit right.
