What makes this look like an IFG is the placement of the headlights.  If you look the outside edges of the headlights line up with the side of the small scoops(or vents) in the fender above it.  That moves the inside of the headlights closer and makes the width of the front trunk lid narrower than a real Lambo.  Also, the top of the cowl at the base of the windshield on an IFG is higher than a real Lambo.  It looks like that is what you have.  The door latches could have been made whatever the builder wanted and don't have to be like any other build.
As for the two black items next to your rear plate, they look like rear sensors to detect distance.  I don't think they would work well where they are because they would detect the rear bumper where they are.  This is just a guess.
Relax and enjoy your car.

It isn't enough to want a Lambo, you have to want to BUILD A CAR.

It looks like this isn't an IFG then?
Another newbie question. I bought this car from a dealer, who didn't have a clue about almost everything.
I have these two electronic "pods" on either side of the license plate. Could they be back-up alarm sensors, cameras, or what?
Sorry I'm being such a PIA here, I'm a good mechanic and been wrenching for decades, but am totally unfamiliar with these.

Thanks guys. I was just attempting to figure out if any specific make had any particular problems, or eccentricities. This looks like it was a dead on, quality vehicle at one point in time, but apparently most who have owned it, never took very good care of it.
I've had it almost a week, and after three trips to DMV, still can't seem to get it titled & registered in my name, in spite of the fact it's a FL title and I'm in FL.
I have learned through the DMV though, that it was originally built in Nevada in 2011, then sold to someone in Pennsylvania, then sold to someone in Florida, who sold it to this dealer I bought it from in Alabama, who never changed the title.
The DMV problem is because the dealer claimed "odometer exempt", which makes perfect sense, since the donor vehicle was an 80's vehicle, but in Florida, you can't do an odometer exempt on any vehicle less than ten years old.

Since all body builders have ceased manufacturing (Audi law suit threat), does it make any difference or do you want to know who assembled your replica?  Ask the previous owner.
But if you really need to know who made the fiberglass body, there are differences on the surface of the front of the quarter panels in the area of the striker down to the rocker and there are differences in the area of the door hinge down to the rocker.

ASVE on the title is not the name of the manufacturer. It means "Assembled Vehicle" and is used when the state assigns a VIN to a car that was assembled by an individual.

You need to put up more pic from different angles, its hard to tell with just one pic though I suspect it is a IFG

Which manufacturer??
« Reply #1 on: August 21, 2017, 08:58:25 AM »
Newbie here. I just purchased a very accurate Diablo replica, with Fiero running gear, that is titled on the Florida title as a 2011 ASVE.
Does anyone have ANY idea of what manufacturer this might be, or any Info that might assist me in identifying this??
