Lamborghini Loans a Real Aventador to a Father and a Son Who 3D-Printed a Replica

This is a Christmas miracle, though a temporary one.

Earlier, we talked about a dad who decided to please his son and built a replica of his favorite car from Forza Horizon, printing the body panels and some other parts on a 3D printer. This story reached Italy and the manufacturer decided to honor the passionate fans.

Lamborghini is against any attempt at counterfeiting. However, a true story of such authentic passion deserves to be featured, which is why we chose to tell of Sterling’s and Xander’s project in our 2019 Christmas video,

said Katia Bassi, Chief Marketing and Communication Officer of Automobili Lamborghini.

It should be reminded that Sterling Backus and his 12-year-old son Xander are big fans of Lamborghini, so they built a copy of the supercar in their garage, spending a year and a half on it.

A few days before Christmas, the father and son received a real Aventador S from Lamborghini. However, the 740-hp supercar will not remain in the Backus family forever – it was loaned only for a few days.

Here is Lamborghini’s last year’s Christmas video about the company’s real fans, which has gathered over 24 million views.
