I have a thread on this car too. This is the shady car guy who buys wrecked cars and then tries to sell them. He homogolated this car from two different cars. And NO there is not one thing in this add that is correct. Look at the missing mirror, the missing center cap, the crappy pictures of the interior. I cannot even imagine what else is wrong with this car.


I have offered to buy this engine and trans... the price was 20K... i.e. the price of McL's wrecked car.

I would love to buy the engine and trans or even his old car in total, but this buyer thought his car would be an easy fix. I bought a better parts car sans engine and trans for 8K. I have all ready used about 3K worth of parts (exchanged them to keep another one running and then fixed the non-functioning part).

I would even give him 10K for engine trans and acc. pieces.

Yes, I see he is using multiple eBay accounts as well to sell these frankencars. I hope you can find a drive train at a reasonable price.

One of those eBay accounts wouldn't happen to be "murcielago8898" would it? The guy who started a thread here a few weeks back looking for a Jalpa engine and transmission.

It seems that he's been dabbling in salvaged Lambos for quite a few years now. I believe that these are also his cars for sale:

Lamborghini : Diablo VT in Lamborghini | eBay Motors

Lamborghini : Diablo VT 6.0 Coupe 2-Door in Lamborghini | eBay Motors

2003 Lamborghini Murcielago Rear Collision Salvage Frame Only No Engine | eBay

Lamborghini : Other white in Lamborghini | eBay Motors
