Lamborghini Veneno and Gumpert Apollo Replicas: Made in China

We recently showed you the latest... efforts of the Chinese replica subculture, with the LaFerrari and the Pagani Zonda Revolucion being the victims. Nonetheless, a new pair of supercars has apparently been targeted and this time we’re talking about the Lamborghini Veneno and the Gumpert Apollo.

To be honest, we should’ve seen the Veneno copycat coming, since the final unit of the three Veneno Coupes Lamborghini built was delivered to a customer in Macau, China. For those aiming to drive the reinvented Aventador, the exclusivity wasn’t the only issue, as the creature came with a price of about US$4 million (EUR 3.12 million).

Judging from what we can see in the adjacent image, albeit a low resolution one, the Veneno replica seems to be pretty close to the real deal. Amusingly, we came to the same conclusion when talking about the LaFerrari and Zonda Revolucion copycats.

However, we promise we won’t be caught off guard again. To be more precise, we should warn you to prepare for the arrival of a closely related clone - Lamborghini also built an even more expensive Veneno Roadster, remember?

As for the Gumpert Apollo, the guy aiming to drive the replica probably has some car collector ambitions or something - Gumpert went bankrupt last year, so the Apollos, the actual ones, should be a pretty good catch. Returning to the replica, this is still a work in progress. It's enough to look at those crude lines of the windshiled to understand how much (wasted) work it still requires.
