London: If you can’t afford a real Lamborghini maybe this one built out of cardboard and paper will be sufficient in the meantime.

The sports car copy is the latest work from Taras Lesko, whose previous models include a cardboard robot from hit cartoon series Gundam Wing, which was 7ft tall. The Seattle designer made the components to the police Lamborghini Aventador using computer software, including AfterEffects and Adobe Photoshop.

Once he had designed the different elements of the car he printed them off on a few hundred paper sheets before cutting them out using an X-Acto knife. To prevent the 11.3kg model vehicle from falling down, Mr Lesko used a sturdy base made of chipboard. The pretend luxury car, which took months to complete, has impressed viewers on YouTube.–Metro
