Default Basement Lamborghini

This guy is insane. He built a car in his basement, then extracted it.

Bad-*******-***. The precision is amazing. I was thinking he took it apart again to extract it. Nope, he dug a ******* hole and knocked the basement wall out. Insane.

Wow I was expecting "some guy put a kit car together in his basement" not some dude completely made a car from random pieces of metal that resembles a Countach.
