I think they meant to write "Lombardini" which is an industrial engine 
manufacturer, which does in fact have a two-cylinder 23hp aircooled 
diesel engine on the market.

Lambo pretty much -is- a high end sportscar manufacturer, and I believe 
it's owned at least in part by VW.

If someone could source that Lamborghini engine (that firm primarily makes tractors, not expensive sports cars) or some other light weight air-cooled fuel efficient diesel that would fit in the VW Beetle's engine compartment & easily mate up to the existing transaxle & then market the setup as a kit at an affordable price, that person might be able to make a small fortune. Perhaps there is a suitable engine in China that could be modified to fit in the rear of a Beetle & then sold in this country. Maybe I am just dreaming.
