Lamborghini has just released a short clip 2019 Christmas video to celebrate Christmas this year, and is also a gift that the company offers to true Lamborghini brand lovers.
Last Christmas, Lamborghini was praised by the brand's followers with the clip 2018 Christmas video which attracted millions of views on Lamborghini's social media channels.
The story in 2019 Christmas video is about Backus Sterling and his 12-year-old son - Xander. For nearly two years now, this father and son have been fiddling with themselves to build a full-size replica of the Aventador SV in their garage in Erie, Colorado, USA. Notably, father and son have used both 3D printers to create many details of the car.
A few days before Christmas, the father and son opened their garage door and saw a true black Aventador S, instead of their Aventador SV replica. Their love for Lamborghini has earned them a sweet gift from the company.
