The owner is probably a middle aged man who wears a toupee, has butt implants, takes penis enlargement pills, sports a fake tan, tries to be hip by blaring rap music but still wears a 'Members Only' jacket. T
here's no escaping the fact you can't cover over what you really are.

Shear stupidity! And to boot, I'll bet the conversion cost well over 45k!

And being curious, I voted crack pipe to see that there are some folks out there that actually thought it was cool.

You left out the part about earning and the conspicuous tattoo.

I could forgive someone for doing that to a Fiero.

I've never really understood the appeal of Lambo's in the first place. I would much rather have a nice Porsche.

omg I know where this car is!

It's in Kansas City on the MO side. I'll be in the area tomorrow for T'giving. I may go by and try to see it. For anyone interested here's the local ad on CL.

Oh yeah, and I agree....Yuuuuuuuck!

My friend's a true Porsche guy, but he did buy this...it's a blast to drive, but horribly expensive to maintain. Reverse sensor went out on the tranny (paddle shifter) and it cost $12,000! And some complain about the expense of an IMS update.

That Lamboxster is almost as bad as the Carrera GT/Boxster conversion.
