Mixing and matching car parts is not an uncommon thing but combining parts to form a completely different car is somewhat unheard of.

According to Barret Jackson Auctions, this bizarre Ford Mustang-Lamborghini Gallardo lovechild is called the Tractorri and cost a cool R10-million to build and construct.

Someone will buy this..

The car is mostly made up of the Mustang while the rear is all Gallardo. The heartbeat of this creation is a 5.0l V10 that powers the Gallardo

As you can see from the pictures, most of the bodywork is custom fabricated, this in a bid to house parts like the dashboard, seats and all-wheel drive system.

According to the Auctioneers: "This SEMA Show car is a one-of-a-kind custom Mustang with over $700 000 invested in the build. It was originally a 2007 Mustang and has been upgraded with the entire running gear from a brand-new Lamborghini Gallardo underneath. It’s powered by a 5.0-liter 10-cylinder engine backed by a 6-speed automatic transmission."

Barrett Jackson said: "The Gallardo dash was chopped and modified to fit the Mustang, and joins the factory center console and seats to anchor the custom Alcantara headliner, custom door panels and custom lit sill plates, and displays the Lamborghini HVAC, gauges, switches and controls."

Barrett Jackson said:"The name Tractorri is a tribute to Ferrucio Lamborghini's humble beginnings. The owner and PPG came up with the custom paint color in which this Mustang is presented. It features completely custom bodywork from the fabricated front end, featuring Porsche 911 Turbo turn signals, to the steel fender flares and rocker moldings and the rear of the car, which integrates the factory Lamborghini taillights."
