A team of Iranian engineers has unveiled a copycat Italian made Lamborghini Murcielago Copy luxury sportscar .
They dismantled an original Lamborghini Murcielago SV sportscar and designed new parts that looks like the original Lamborghini parts.

Their goal was to understand how Volkswagen owned Lamborghini manufactures it’s super-cars so that they can use the knowledge to make future Iranian-built vehicles.
But their own sports car is powered by a 3.8-liter Hyundai V6 engine instead of the original 6.5-liter V12 engine that powers the monster Murcielago SV.
The head of the team said at the unveiling that “all parts of the body, inside the car and precise mechanics of the car are manufactured and mounted based on the original of Murcielago platform and its chassis is also one and one with the original chassis”
“We selected a unique model of a superior brand, and tried to be faithful to the main features and even the simplest details of the original model”
The 6.5-liter V12 powered Lamborghini Murcielago SV, the Lamborghini Diablo successor, was produced by between 2001 and 2010.
The 661 horsepower super-car has a top speed of 212 mph and will move from zero to 62 miles per hour in 3.2 seconds.
