We here all understand why everybody wants to build a Lamborghini. They are awesome. But, if you do not have any experience building a car you have chosen the wrong car to be your first attempt. These are the most intricate, expensive, and demanding builds of any replicas.
My suggestion for you if you really want to build a car is to go for something more feasible, like something from Factory Five. They have really nice true kits. You could build a Cobra, a GTM mid-engine, a street rod, or even their new 818. You would at least stand a chance to finish the build and actually have a car when you are done.
There is a reason the builders that finish a Lambo are called the 3%. That refers to the percent that start a Lambo and finish.

Anyway, think about it. There are people here that can help no matter what you are building.

Believe me, the GTM is EASY to build compared to a Lambo and you won't be spending tons of money on "real Lamborghini" stuff to "be as accurate as possible".
When you are finished building you will have a car just as noticed as a Lambo.

You know your budget. Discuss your wants with Factory Five. They will be glad to help. They know their product and customers best.

friend of mine build GTM , ls3 /G50 fliped. the tranny was $5K , believe me you don't need the damn 500HP in those cars , they are way to light compare to other cars. you just don't get it!! that those engines are expensive with that kind of HP. talk to FF5 they'll guide you.
BTW did you find out where are you going to build it and park after you car when is finished? you said you live in apartment in NY no space.
