Yes it does.
I am in the process of building the third one in the UK.

Constructed using a space frame chassis and RS4 V8 rear mounted engine.
The fibre glass body is 100% accurate and will also use 99% oem gallardo parts.

Full Gallardo interior, glass, lights (obviously) and clocks/guages.

But it is a very tough build.
The chassis has not been perfected, so some things need (have been) chopped and changed in order for everything to fit correctly.
Getting the RS4 V8 up and running with full loom and ECUs is very tricky.

The first build of this kind is almost complete (he's just tinkering with cosmetics now), the second has the majority of electrical and mechanical components completed, most of the body installed and soon to be heading for IVA.

Mine, still in it's infancy!
Engine and gearbox fitted. Loom connected where needed to get it fired up, but having trouble working out fuel lines etc.

For someone who barely has 4 hours after work to spare every day, the likelihood of completing this car is ambitious at best  :down:

But yes, it exists.
And it is an awesome car!
