Those round tail lights are from Fiat econoboxes from the '60's.

Or they got them off of eBay

I doubt those companies making Altezza taillights for Civics pay $5 million.

It's not the certification of lights but the tooling cost for the moulds. The moulds on complex plastic could run a quarter of a million dollars per side, which when spread over small volume lots would be prohibitively expensive.

that NSX is unbelievably ugly.

Koenigsegg uses FD RX-7 reverse light/red reflector on rear.

with all this light talk just for ownage reasons cuz Timpo didn't research his shit properly...


the Lambo Diablo uses the exact same headlights as the 300zx, and when I say exact, I mean Lamborghini licensed them directly from Nissan and if you go find yourself a Diablo and pop the headlights out, it WILL say Nissan Motor CO right on the friggin lights










and Lambo didn't wanna piss off their customers so they covered up the Nissan logo with a carbon fiber strip seen on the top of the lights here in the pic





the rear of the Diablo
