Not all of us are great at managing our money.
As hard as we try to save our pennies and spend money wisely, many of us still find ourselves buying frivolous items here and there – car parts, electronics, clothes. You know, that sort of thing.
But we’ll forever take solace in the fact that we’re not nearly as bad at managing our finances as the person who spent $700,000 trying to make a Ford Mustang into a Lamborghini Gallardo.
This monstrosity, which has been popping up in various places online for last few year or so, will soon be auctioned off at Barrett-Jackson’s upcoming sale in Scottsdale, Arizona. According to the listing, it started out life as a perfectly normal 2007 Ford Mustang before someone spent $700,000 giving it the entire running gear from a 2009 Lamborghini Gallardo. It was built for the SEMA Show in Las Vegas, as most terrible custom cars are, and shows 2,554 miles on its odometer.
Hilariously, whoever created the Lamborghini Mustang thought a good nickname for it would be the ‘Tractorri’. This was supposed to be in reference to Lamborghini’s roots as a tractor maker. We can understand wanting to give it a name with historical significance, but Tractorri doesn’t sound that sporty.
We can at least appreciate the execution of this build. We have no idea why someone would want to put a mid-mounted Lamborghini V10 in a Mustang, nor why they would spend $700k doing so, but at least it runs and drives (we assume). The builder also went through the trouble of installing the Gallardo’s interior in the Mustang and somehow managed to make it look normal.
