GJILAN, Kosovo (AP) — Sports car enthusiast Driton Selmani always wanted some hot wheels but couldn’t afford them. What he did have, however, was a workshop and a talent for bending and welding metal. So he set out to build himself a “Lamborghini.”
Selmani, from the eastern Kosovo town of Gjilan, used a secondhand Mitsubishi Eclipse, the engine of 3.0-liter Mitsubishi Galant and other car parts to make his dream come true.
It took him over a year but the result is a white replica of a Lamborghini Reventon with a black and red stripe symbolizing the colors of the Albanian national flag.
