Hard to tell from the cell phone pic but looks like a replica/kit. The angles of the rear wheel arch don't look right and the overall stance seems off. Also the wheels aren't correct, although similar to originals.

Love the original, grew up with a poster of one on my wall as a kid.

That thing must be fast. I saw him in downtown DC. DC to VA Beach in 30 minutes? WOW.

Did they just park like that? Taking up 2 spots with the door wide open?

I hated Lamborghinis and Ferraris when I was a kid. I never really liked their designs with the weird aerodynamics, boxed edges, and prominent lines. Funny thing was I absolutely loved the boxy e30s. (This comment might get a lot of hate but I am the M3Post dbag so I don't care.)

Yeah he was showing it off next to the drive thru. Up close either he had a really bad paint job or it was cheap sheet metal. Just didn't look right.

I agree with most comments in that something is off in its stance. Looks like a "special" off-road edition. Always thought these things were pretty low to the ground.
