I’ll admit that when it comes to rap music, I’m not exactly well-versed on the terminology, so when I first heard Kanye West’s “Mercy,” I was thoroughly confused by the line: “Lamborghini Mercy, your chick she so thirsty.”
In an effort to fully understand what the hell “thirsty” meant, I took to urban dictionary and found that it’s someone who desperately wants something. In context of “Mercy” the line seems to suggest that when someone is in a Lamborghini Mercy, other guys’ chicks desperately want that person.
So, if you’re looking to quench some lady thirst, I suggest that you check out this affordable “chrome-wrapped” Lamborghini Mercy on Craigslist.
This is a replica Lambo, but John, the guy selling it, claims that it’s hard to tell the difference. It’s going for just under $9,000, but as it’s only “80 percent done,” you’re going to have to put a little work into this puppy.
The doors don’t open, but John says it’s not a problem because he cut the springs to lower the car, so climbing in and out is a breeze (PERFECT!). If you check out the crudely-edited picture above, you can see what the car would look like if you installed Lambo door hinges on it. It really helps to show what this replica is capable of.
Under the hood—which may or may not open—there is a “huge 3.0-liter V-6” which produces “205 HP that feels more like 300 HP.” The ad also claims that this thing has enough power to compete with Mustangs, Camaros and some older Corvettes. However, if you’re going to be racing this thing, just remember to remove the windshield and all unnecessary metal parts as you’ll only achieve that 300-horsepower feeling with “the metal and glass removed.”
The best part of the whole ad is that John continuously refers to the potential buyer as the “winner.” I would assume that’s because he has experience with this beast and knows that flocks of thirsty chicks are inevitable. However, from the look of this replica, I’m having a hard time believing that it’s one of the cars women find attractive.
