definitely looks to be hiding the car in the pics to make it look as attractive as possible.

That is just strange. It is probably some guy who had a wrecked Boxster and a wrecked Lambo and he welded the two together. I wouldn't pay $69k for a frankenstein car.
I would personally never buy a kit car, it's all about truth in materials.

Maybe its just a joke ad. The pictures seem like a real murcielago to me... is there anything on those pictures that would be a dead giveaway that it's a kit-car with a boxster as a frame?

Would the owner of that qualify as a "poser"?

Thats a picture of a real Lambo at an autoshow, he's probably looks like crap compaired to that but he used the pictures to lure you to look at it and negociate.

If someone has 70k I would assume that this car would not appeal to them. A 70k kit car...I would buy a 904/6 kit car for that price. Or a 917 but not a Lambo Kit.
