Gjilan, Kosovo - Sports-car enthusiast Driton Selmani always wanted some hot wheels but couldn't afford them. What he did have, however, was a workshop and a talent for bending and welding metal. So he set out to build himself a “Lamborghini.”

Selmani, from the eastern Kosovo town of Gjilan, used a secondhand Mitsubishi Eclipse, the engine from a three-litre Mitsubishi Galant and other car parts to make his dream come true.

It took him more than a year but the result is a white replica of a Lamborghini Reventon with a black and red stripe symbolizing the colors of the Albanian national flag.

Selmani said the car has been well accepted by friends and family and it turns heads whenever he takes it out for a spin.
