Lamborghini art

 

Wierd and wonderful wall display for the rich

American millionaire car collector and art lover Richard Moriarty has combined his two passions, adorning a wall of his mansion with a 1974 Lamborghini Countach.

In order to get the car into the house, the engine was removed and turned into a coffee table. Then the bodyshell was craned in through a skylight.

Getting the Lamborghini into the house took about an hour, but the project was conceived months ago, when architect Fleetwood Joiner began designing Moriarty's new home, US$2million worth of steel-and-concrete that will overlook Newport's Back Bay when construction finishes later this year.
