    If this is a re-post then sorry, but is this real? Kit? Has anyone called the owner?

    Just wondering

    Has he bastardised the 328 or is it a replica. Either way it's horrible.

    Looks like a Fiero kit to me. Believe it or not, this one looks better than some of the others I've seen!

    That's got fiero written all over it. Look at the clearance between the rear wheels and the fender. It looks stubby too.

    Definite replica (fender well gaps and tires are dead giveaway) but better than the normal trash that is sold as a "replicar".

    Repli-junk all the way, I believe that is like the Machiavelli from the 1980's using a Trans Am frame.

    If it isn't a replicant he should avoid having the picture with a Fiero in the garage up behind it....

    Funny stuff!

    Can you post some more pics of your Countach replica including the interior? It looks pretty accurate from the small pic I can see. Thanks

    Yeah, that car's pretty sweet. Looks like he's got the Lamarossa Challenge grille on back.

    But the Lamarossa even has its own website now and the owner is genuinely proud of the car...posing with it, in it, even in front of a real TR.

    As the owner of a replicar, a Intermeccanica Porsche Convertible D, I take offence with this obviously terrible creation! It shows the Replicar business in its worst possible light. ;-)

    But hey, the owner enjoys it and isn't that what its all about?

    At least he didn't take a TR and make a Supra out it.

    Here's some pics Slag. Your 328 looks IMMACULATE in your profile! Very nice and cool colors!
    I don't know how to post a pic on this forum (it's not like posting pics on other forums I frequient), but here are the links. If the pics don't work, They are located at "Sony Image Station" Here: http://www.imagestation.com/album/?id=4292457619 It's free to join.


    My car, Viper RT 10 and a NICE 512 replica.

    Heres my car next to a real Black C/T. Notice my doors don't go up as high and my Bull badge was placed a little too high, but still attracted a large group of folks at this car show.

    The interior shot was when I first bought it. NOW, the shifter now has an aluminum ball on it and is about 5" shorter than the weird setup in this pic. I honesty don't understand the mindset of some of the people that build these cars letting something so stupid looking, that is so easy to fix remain. The dash is square and looks like a real Countach, besides a few (hard to replace) A/C switches and wiper switch. The inside doors are very accurate too.

    LOL, you posted a nice pic from my stash! I had my windows out in that pic. It's kinda cool in the summer time, I pop out my windows and have rubber seals underneith so it looks like they would be rolled down to passer-by's (even though there's no place for them to roll down too because of the angle), people still tell me they thought they were rolled down. It looses the "real" C/T look but it gets REALLY HOT here in Austin and my A/C can't hang in the "greenhouse" so I sacrifice a little looks during the summer.
    I measured the car and found it to be accurate on wheelbase and height. Sitting beside a real C/T I was REALLY impressed with the accuracy! Here's the company thet makes this particular replica: http://euroworksltd.com/MirageS/ I have done alot of research and havn't found much better out on the market. This is a streached Fiero based chassis with a 2.8L V6 Fiero motor in this car. I did mod it to gain a bit more horsepower and it feels SOOOO much better than when I first got it. It runs about like a Mustang GT right now. I havn't driven many exotics, but I have been in MANY exotic cruises and did rent a Ferrari 348 Spyder in Vegas. I am not saying by no means that I have a better car than anyone else, but poeple do FLOCK to my car more than any other car at shows and cruises. I DO explain that it's a replica and I'm totally honest since I do respect Lamborghini and it still is my dream car, though I am totally in love with the 348!

Here's the company thet makes this particular replica: http://euroworksltd.com/MirageS/ I have done alot of research and havn't found much better out on the market. I bought this car from a gentleman in Atlanta for about $30,000. It was build in 1986 by Euro-Works.This is a streached Fiero based chassis with a 2.8L V6 Fiero motor in this car. I did mod it to gain a bit more horsepower and it feels SOOOO much better than when I first got it. It runs about like a Mustang GT right now.

I am not saying by no means that I have a better car than anyone else, but poeple do FLOCK to my car more than any other car at shows and cruises. I guess the Countach is just known for setting the Exotic Craze in the 80's so people want to see one in person. I DO explain that it's a replica and I'm totally honest since I do respect Lamborghini and it still is my dream car, but I fell in love with the 348 since I drove it!

    The price alone is a dead give away..that would be the deal of the year. I admit I did have to look at the picture twice though..I've seen MUCH worse.
