School’s in! V12 Diablo replica

Dave from Stance Is Everything must be the hardest working guy in the automotive blog network, every time I check his site there’s a bunch of new posts and updates, which is much more than I can say for myself! I remember reading an older post of his where he reminisced about the influence his old high school auto-shop teacher had on him, and I thought to myself how cool it would have been to have a teacher who was in to cars, let alone actually have auto-shop available as a class (my school never provided it). Fast-forward to last week, Dave put up a new post about the most recent work his old teacher has undertaken, a tube-frame Lamborghini Diablo replica powered by a BMW V12. Sure beats the usual Pontiac Fiero based replicas, talk about stepping it up!

CLICK HERE to see the full project, there are 13 pages of images, page 5 has links to earlier build photos.

Thanks again to Stance Is Everything, go check it out!

  1. This is by far the best I’ve ever seen step by step build! You guys did an amazing job. If I were to do it how much would it cost? Or can I buy one from you?

  2. Hi, i’m in the Toronto area and would like a build like this. Let me know if you have any leads on a turn key car or iv you’re building any or selling any. Fantastic Job! Well Done!

  3. Jason meredith her like you to do a Lamborghini for me using v12 bmw motor how much was the build when is the soonest you can start are even a Ferrari enzo replica with bmw. V12

  4. I’m currently doing the same thing it’s actually a fairly easy combination. Just source your self a old bmw m70 out of any of the sedans:) order a adapter plate from drift works HQ Porsche g86 5 speed from a boxster. Yes the five speed is just fine because tons of you were going to say that’s a weak transmission….. For a bear ass M7 it’s just fine There is a gentleman by the name of Eric Martin in the replica world that will manufacture you a fly wheel and clutch. He runs A&E machining …… once you get that combination right it will work just fine for the replica I am currently going above and beyond and actually building a GTR
    I have my intake manifold being custom built
    From a company called Renault bmw… they are manufacturing A ITB intake with a carbon fiber scoop…. Because I am building a GTR remanufacturing the intake wasn’t easy. But onto making the engine run there are plenty of companies out there that have aftermarket electronic control module that will run a V 12 . Within about three hours of digging you should be able to find everything on the Internet to make the engine run……
