I was recently driving along when I discovered this bright green Lamborghini Aventador parked on the street. I appreciate a nice green Lamborghini as much as anyone, so I looked a little closer, and things appeared to be a bit ... off. Specifically, the proportions just weren't quite right for an Aventador -- close, yes, but not quite correct. It wasn't low enough, or as wedge-shaped as it needed to be, and it quickly became clear to me that it wasn't actually an Aventador.

So then what?

My first thought was that it was an Aventador with some sort of body kit, the sort of body kit that's common among exotic-car owners who don't think simply having an exotic car is enough, and must attract even more attention with ridiculous cosmetic modifications. But it wasn't that. The proportions just didn't line up with any Aventador, body kit or not.

So I did a little digging, and I discovered what it actually is: an Infiniti G35 Coupe.

Yes, the bright green, Lamborghini-looking thing you see above is actually a 2003-2007 Infiniti G35 Coupe, with a total re-body by a company called Vaydor Exotics. Vaydor offers body kits to transform the G35 Coupe into an exotic-looking car, replacing all the Infiniti body panels for exotic car-looking panels. The website doesn't specifically say the Vaydor G35 is intending to resemble the Lamborghini Aventador, but given the design language, that seems to be the likely intent. Naturally, Vaydor is located in Florida -- the land of trying to convince people you're rich, even if you aren't -- and the website shows photos of quite a few completed cars.

Vaydor's website also lists pricing for this kit, and it's surprisingly reasonable, with all body panels offered for $11,000, plus a "full interior conversion" for $3,000. Of course, that doesn't include installation, which is probably exceptionally expensive. Vaydor also offers a wheel and tire package ($5,800) and a big brake package ($5,000), both of which seem important, as this car won't look too exotic with the stock G35 wheels and brakes.

And so, this is a Lamborghini that isn't a Lamborghini -- it's actually an Infiniti G35 Coupe. But I bet the owner doesn't exactly volunteer that information when sitting at a traffic light as onlookers take photos.
