But thanks to graphic artist Taras Lesko, you can have your own Lamborghini Aventador, or even a pair of them if you want – although they’re made of paper and are pint-sized.


Lesko took on the challenge of not only building scale models of a pair of Lamborghini Aventadors out of paper but followed it with a larger, 8-foot-long replica of an Aventador Interceptor made famous by the "Need for Speed" video game franchise.

 

He has made kits available on his website so you can build your own.

The completed large-scale model, which Lesko dubbed the Aventador A-E2 after the Architectural E2 paper used for the printed parts of the car, measures 8 feet by 3.8 feet by 2.1 feet and weighs 25 pounds, mainly due to the chipboard backing that adds strength and rigidity.


Materials and printing costs Lesko $1,000 – a bargain for a Lamborghini Aventador that you can hang on your wall. But you may want to study Lesko’s fast-motion video of the build process for the Aventador Interceptor to make sure you have enough skill, space, time and tank tops before taking on the project.
