Countach in the basement

We all aspire to supercar ownership, most of us in the knowledge that we'll never be able to afford the car of our dreams.
Wisconsin's Ken Imhoff, however, took the initiative to do something about it. Having fallen in love with the Lamborghini Countach in Cannonball Run, he decided to build one. From scratch. In his basement.
It took an improbable amount of time and effort (the body panels, for example, were all hand-formed by Ken from sheet aluminium), and part of the foundations of the house had to be removed to get the finished car out.
The results speak for themselves - the basement Lambo is a labour of love, and Imhoff is nothing short of heroic. Click here to read the story.
