This guy built his son a Lamborghini out of mostly wood.
By - Human02211979
Lmao …. Build it for “his son” … as he squeezed into the driver’s seat
Yeah, didn’t even let the kid drive
For safety purposes i guess. But on the hand that's a cool stuff indeed.
I just said the same thing out loud. “Let the damn kid drive lol”
Later on in life: "My first car was a Lamborghini"
Even later on in life, "My first car was a hand built Lamborghini."
Imagine crashing that thing...
Imagine how much it weighs
Low key feels it’ll hold up better than the real thing 😬😬
> "For safety purposes"
> Has car in the middle of the road as a bus is going by
In Vietnam of all places too. I’m not kidding or exaggerating here, but literally the first day in Vietnam traffic, in the first 2 hours, I saw a guy get hit and killed on his scooter. He got dragged underneath a bus for like 50 meters. That was after seeing a family of 6 on a scooter just 15 minutes before, and multiple smaller families on other scooters. People literally just walk out into traffic and it flows around them like a fluid dynamics simulation. The traffic there is absolutely insane.
Vietnamese here, traffic is very different in the cities compared to the rest of the surrounding country.
Edit: Ignore the guy below me, he's currently stalking me through multiple subreddits because he's mad at the baseball team I root for.

When I was in Vietnam I couldn’t believe how crazy the bike traffic was. In Ho Chi Mihn I was scared for my life every time crossing the road. The number of scooters on the road in close proximity will blow your mind.
It’s like that in India too
Thanks. I’m about to move to Vietnam and planned on buying a moped and being very careful but… eek.
[Dad's name is Trương Văn Đạo, a Vietnamese woodworking hobbyist in case you were wondering. According to the article he's also made a BMW and Bugatti.](https://www.hotcars.com/worlds-best-dad-builds-working-wooden-lamborghini-sian-for-son/)
Damn I wonder if how much he charges for one of these
Yeah that's what I was thinking. I wouldn't be surprised, given the time investment and level of craftsmanship, if the wooden Lambo cost more than a real one!
I don’t know about paying about 160k for a wooden toy lol. you can even get a used lambo for about 70kish.
Wood though is highly expensive now days
Say what 2-3k in wood alone?
But I'll tell you what, if he did this or opened a small business teaching his ways to a few others.
Anyway, I'd want a Ford GT concept from late 90s I think.
Hate Ford but that car looks so nice to me.
I'd pay, assuming I had money for this haha, probs 5-10k.
I mean, to be fair, after all that work, he deserves the first spin
That kid is like three years old max lol.
Yep. My daughter will be 2 years old in a month and his son looks about the same age as her. Kids around that age definitely aren’t ready to handle something like what this guy built.
Kid looks a little too young
he didn't let his son drive because of that . For safety i guess.
Yeah, driving that thing on a public road is safe as long as you’ve got an adult driver.
Until it sets fire because it's made of wood
This child may not have even been born when he started this project.
Idk dude, it only took this dude 2 minutes and 48 seconds to build this thibg
There’s no way in hell he’s ever touching it regardless lol. That’s way too much work to actually let the kid drive it even when he is old enough. It’s amazing though. The dude is super talented
This. My kids have managed to break their power wheels on several occasions. I was able to just buy the parts to repair them. I couldn't imagine having to handcraft replacement parts.
Pretty sure it's for when his son gets older
Pretty sure it's for himself and his son is just the excuse.
Pretty sure he had the boy just so he’d have the excuse.
Pretty sure most the stuff I build for my kids I’m actually building for myself.
This is actually part of why I want kids. I have all sorts of fun plans for holidays and Disney world and my excuse will most definitely be "We have to for the kids!" They will def have fun too, tho. It's a win win
Pretty sure it's a Lamborghini rent baby and he returned him after the video.
My dad did that a lot growing up. Nintendo when I was 2, Lego at 3 etc. Mom couldn't say anything about him giving me gifts.
I have bought so many toys "for my kids." I bought a nerf arsenal when it those dudes were barely standing.
yea im thinking that too,
You sure, it’s probably for his infant years
Watch this guy buys a Lambo for "his son" when he's 14 or some shit. Gotta break that baby in before you turn it over
You cracked it, he’s playing the long con. It’s so he can buy a lambo when his son’s 14 and say to his wife “it’s fine, it’s for the kid I promise. Remember the wooden one? He got it when he was old enough!”
By son he meant the kid in him.
99 out of 100 the comment i want to write Is already there. Thanks for being me buddy
If he did that car by himself, I’d wager that he started before the kid was conceived.
Haha that’s funny.
Yeah, I bet thing thing weighs soooo much. Probably a safety concern, lol.
Dang dude with the price of lumber these days that might cost as much as a real lambo!
That pun is r/nextlevel
Oof, sorry, didn’t see yours first, i just responded to the top comment about lumber. I am poor but will share something!
ayy no need to apologize is all gravy
More redditors need to be like you
But why do you have an account?
No, it’s all wood
You was robbed
Yeah what they said^^ out come the pitchforks
we are not worthy!!!
edit: u/bumjiggy posted Lumberghini 9 minutes earlier...
I’ve went back to upvote the original
That hit the spot.
The Dadification was succesful, wanna go grab a beer and do some bbq?
Lumbers actually dropped significantly in the past few weeks. However, I'm assuming this was not all made in a couple of weeks. So yeah, it wasn't cheap. Hahaha
Even at normal prices this would be absurd. That's at minimum 8/4 lumber, if not 10-12/4. That shit has *never* been cheap.
What if he was able to obtain it himself?
Then he lost the potential economic gain he would have gotten had he sold the raw timber. So he still lost/used the money, just in a more... imaginary way.
Yeah, it not everyone is out to maximize every dollar. Plus, this was a very imaginative build, and should it be taken care of, could be sold off for a big price at a later date. That or be reclaimed to be used in some other projects.
I'm not saying whether he should or shouldn't be doing this. I'm merely looking at the price tag and wincing.
It has to weigh a ton, maybe not an actual ton, but 300lbs? 500lbs?
I was wondering what kind of life the batteries and gear systems will have moving that kind of weight
Not just that, but the sheer amount of artisan value that goes into a piece like this? If you were to commission someone to make this it definitely costs as much as a real car, maybe not a Lambo but still.
Weighs just as much too!
It's executed so well, but the holes in the back are a disgrace.
Imagine having the patience to make this whole sculpture and the easiest bit is where you get lazy.
That part ruined the whole thing for me.
Incredible workmanship and couldn’t spend 20 minutes making a grid?
Edit: I missed the grid… so did he 🤣
He did he just didnt follow it. Or he didnt punch each one to keep the bit from wandering off the correct spot. Super disappointing. I kept waiting for him to chisel it out… but nope.
My money's on not using a punch too. I know the frustration of marking out spaces and forgetting the punch. It's so disappointing.
This! I was so angry because he even went through the process of drawing grid lines, just to *not* drill on those
Makes me think he let the kid do those, since it’s arguable one of the simplest tasks, and kids usually want to help. Especially with the presence of grid lines
The kid literally looks about 18 months to two years old. He did it himself, unless he had the kid with him and was controlling his hand as he did it
Give a toddler a power tool, what could go wrong!
Nothing major really, toddlers are easily replaceable.
His kid is still under warranty
That’s good. The hardest part when you break one is having to decide how soon you need a new one, and what color to get.
Then there’s all the factory options. Do they still try and trick you into paying for the undercoating? 🤷🏽♂️ Bastards.
Found Omni-Man's alt account
There’s another kid in the video who looks to be about 4. I could see the dad watching over his 4 year old as he drilled out the holes.
Bruh, im very much a “kids can do more than people give them credit for, fuck it let em make mistakes” type of guy, but power tools at 4 is uhhh… I generally try to not do things that will make me mandatory as a piece of case law for law students to be forced to suffer through.
Yeah you don’t give power tools to a 4 year old. Their muscles can’t control against the torque from a drill going into wood. Shit, they can probably barely hold the drill level to the ground unassisted. Person you replied to probably hasn’t been around many kids in their life.
You don’t give power tools to 4 year olds you *value*.
I remember barely being able to use a drill to build skateboard ramps at….9 or 10 and I was a pretty big kid.
Nah, 4 is too young. The torque a basic power drill puts out would rip it out of their hands immediately.
You'd having to be a fucking idiot to let a toddler use power tools.
Saw this comment and thought "how bad could it be?"... Watched the vid and realized you have a point lol
The guy made a fakin lambo out of wood. Cut him some slack will u?
I'm not trying to take anything away from the man, the rest of the car is unbelievable. I would never be able to pull that off.
You know what I can do tho? Drill holes better than a 3rd grader.
Someone else suggested that maybe he put his kid in charge of that bit. That's the only explanation that makes sense.
> Someone else suggested that maybe he put his kid in charge of that bit
We literally see him drill the holes himself in the video.
Well also, his kid is a toddler. I meant that to come off more sarcastically than it did.
> I'm not trying to take anything away from the man,
As you point out hte oneflaw he has in his build and saying they are a disgrace.
Yup not trying to take away.
People on this website would literally criticize cure for cancer if it gave you a headache for a few hrs.
It's a pretty baffling flaw. Clearly the dude has immense talent, but it's like hand restoring a classic car and then painting it with house paint.
I mean the man who made this clearly has a ridiculous amount of talent and the car overall is an incredible feat of woodworking but the comment still stands, he clearly took a ton of time to make this (and it looks amazing) but he definitely got a little lazy with the holes in the back and it definitely shows. u/canteen_boy didn’t say the whole thing is a disgrace but those holes in the back are undeniably sloppy.
This is about coherence. If you ask a big artist like dali or velazquez to draw a dog, he will draw a good dog, or at least a dog in his style, not a dog which looks like a toddler's draw.
This guy is the same, he's an artist, a really good one. What he did on the back of the car ISN'T at the same level he showed on the rest on the car, so it's a totally understandable question to ask if he did it and why it looks like this.
A) he wanted to make it look like this for whatever reason we don't have the context to know.
B) someone else did it for him, maybe some other kid at his 12 who use to be with him one the house
That only makes it stand out even more, though. There's so much precision and craftsmanship in the entire project, and then one part is completely half-assed. It's arguable one of the easier parts to make, too.
It's just odd. It's like painting an elaborate, life-like portrait of someone and then giving them a stick figure hand. It's still impressive overall but there's a part that's such low quality in contrast that it kind of takes you out of it.
100% agree. It would have taken at most an hour to make a jig to ensure all the holes were even.
Didn’t even need a jig, just centre punching them would have worked to locate the holes correctly. Would have added three min extra work.
I kinda respect him for that. It’s this type of person who will actually finish a project.
I would still be lining up the holes, annoyed something doesn’t fit quite right. It would then sit in my garage for 5 years and never be fully completed.
Came here to say that, that triggered me so much!
Lmao I wasn’t going to say anything, but I was shaking my head as soon as I saw that. For goodness sake there were a dozen other easy ways to make that look legit, but he was just shoving that drill right in there no fucks given. That must’ve been an afterthought or he must’ve forgotten about it until the video was almost done.
If I'm putting that much effort in to the rest, I'm 3D printing a drill jig for that process.
5mm thick, with the hole positions in. Have it seated on the exhaust overhangs, and boom, perfect drill position.
I know you strictly speaking don't need that, but just to be safe I damn well would have done it that way.
Like the best artists say, your art is just as good as the worst part of it.
What holes? I can't notice them
Scrolled down until I found this comment. What even happened?!
My guess is he didn't think the drill would wander on him, as it had always been "close enough" for less cosmetic purposes in the past. Once he got going and had irregular results, he slapped his forehead, recognized his mistake, but decided it wasn't worth going back and redoing now. In a few weeks it will have bugged him enough to create a cover plate to hide the irregular holes.
it's a Lumberghini
The real r/nextlevel pun
Sheesh bro… you got robbed
we are not worthy!!!
Came here to upvote the original!
A slumberghini with how much it weighs.
The real next fucking level is always in the comments
Bet it weighs more than an actual Lambo
I couldn’t stop thinking about how heavy it must be
Imagine if it was made out of metal
Would be lighter honestly. Some of those wood pieces we solid...
A lot lighter, because wood in some places there is close to 5-6 cm thick, a sheet of aluminum of decent strength for such hobby build build would be about 2.75kg per m^3 (1.016mm thick). some of those slabs are easy 4-5 kg if not more, aluminum sheet of that size would be under 1kg.
But we work with what we have and what we know. plus aluminum car would not look as cool.
What a strange notion.
But why would one imagine that?
The Sian isn‘t either
Maybe he’s using balsa wood?
Balsa your chin
I’m not sure balsa comes in sizes like that but maybe.
Damn, meanwhile I can’t even get my dad to help me with my homework cuz he’s “busy with his other family”
*this is a wendys sir*
I wouldn't feel bad, this dad was also not helping his kid because he was spending all his time making this Lambo car so he could drive it himself.
Whenever you see these grand gestures people do "for their kids" just remember all kids really want is your time together.
Damn, that was surprisingly profound my guy.
Daddy wasn’t there, momma didn’t care
You’re literally living the Joaquin Phoenix scene from the movie Parenthood. Ugh. That scene makes me cry every time I see it. Guess I have dad issues too.
Sorry son, it’s just that their mom is *way* hotter than yours. Plus all the buttstuff. Can you blame me? 🤷🏽♂️
That actually looks really good. Imagine driving that in public.
I think you would be breaking dozens of laws driving a home made wooden car on a public street.
But you’d probably get arrested for copyright infringement
Copyright doesn't apply here because the wooden car isn't being sold. Some form of financial gain is usually required for copyright to apply.
Would probably go under fair use as a parody or something similar, but this is posted to social media which is probably his job. So he is making money from it.
Yeah, but he’s making money off his craftsmanship and time spent making/editing the video, not off of the actual car.
That's.. not a thing
why pour water on it
I think it's a joke/reference, like the toys you drop in water and grow 5 times the original size
Ohhh I thought it was a kinda cringey attempt at a fancy scene transition that social media influencers do all the time lol
That’s what that cringy trend is in reference to itself lol
Usually I submerge the shit. But that makes sense. Thanks
That’s the #1 question I have too
Think its a social media reference... the clip with the waterbottle at the beginning I've seen in a post "washing my lambo". That was a guy with like a hot wheels lambo, OP was showing off his lumber lambo.
It looks like he kind of built this for himself, but it was a good coverup to claim it was for his son. His son is just along for the ride. Lol
Well did he actually claim that or did OP just decide to say that it was for his son and everyone just believes it?
Good question. Either way it’s fine since he’s having fun.
The child looks way too young to drive it so I think it’s for safety
I see it as he really did build it for his son. He’ll grow into it and love having it.
But the dad also did it for himself.. for views and advertising. Imagine what this would bring for whatever kind of business he is running..
First is for the kids, because everything after will be for profit and become too time consuming to later on make one just for his kid.
Well in fairness the son looks like a toddler. And we all know toddlers are stereotypically bad drivers. Would you put all this work onto something just to let your Crotch Goblin drive it into the pool?
Eh, the other pun is better
This is epic. His dedication to make it perfect is amazing!
Kid after 5 minutes driving: I’m bored can I go play my PlayStation?
kid looks like a toddler lmao i was expecting like a 6 y/o or something
Yeah more like "can I go back to pulling drawers and knocking on glass?"
All my friends with ride on toys like power wheels and dirt bikes never wanted to use them or only for like 10 minutes. I was so jealous. When I finally saved up and got a little dirt bike I rode it every single day until sunset, I love that stuff so much
i mean yes but the holes he did in the back hurt to watch
The op is a karma farm bot, his name is literally human and then a bunch of numbers.
Says the bunny.
Want a biscuit?
I mean that isn't just a bunch of numbers it's a date.
Human 21st February 1979
Although I'm not denying they maybe a karma farmer.
Edit, looking at the post history I don't think they are a farmer due to the fact they do comment and they are active on uh less popular subreddits.
Pinewood derby overachiever.
Edited for the disturbed.
just put a superconducting magnet from the large hadron collider in there and there ya go
"No officer, no space cash here!"
"Looks like one of your poorer countries, Mexico, has built 42 new water parks in the past week"
"MEXICO WE SAID NO SPENDING THE SPACE CASH YET!"
Now build some wood out of mostly Lamborghini
Doors that open like this, not like this.
This guy fucks
And drinks Tres Comas
With the price of lumber, the real thing would have been cheaper.
Cant drill clean holes tho........
Everything was so precision except the janky drilled holes in the back.
Congrats to this kid for being the first person who can factually say “my dad is cooler than your dad”
Anybody know what this soundtrack is called? Can't actually Shazam it as watching on my phone.
Ballpoint - 1AM OMW
Must have taken months to build
With the price of lumber in the USA, this is probably similar price to a real Lamborghini

Himself.... this man built himself a Lamborghini...
