Wonderful.

My colleagues from Harman will tell you the story of how they delivered a Murcielago in similar fashion for our exhibition in Germany.
It was delivered with a full tank of gasoline inside.

However, German laws state that when a car is parked inside a public place (the fairgrounds in this example) it may not have more than X litres of fuel (fire hazard)

None of my colleagues and the techies could figure out how to drain the Lambo. There was no time to wait for a Lambo Tech to arrive, as the exhibition began the next morning.

The only solution was to drive the Murci round and round and round and round outside the hall, round and round and round and round and round and round all night till the fuel level dropped.

I was just thinking to myself, BHPians would have loved to do that job, lol.

No man, I did not drive it round and round.

I was just being super cool, there I was in Berlin, sitting in the lambo, all cameras and lights on me, talking to the attractive NDTV presenter when I heard someone say "Ooohh, someone is a celebrity!"

I turned to my right and saw this pretty German lass standing next to the Lamborghini, smiling and teasing me with her twinkling blue eyes.

That German girl would later become TheOne® - and the Lambo a part of my memories.

Thats an awesome shipment. Gotta love that reventon. *drool*. The matt finish paint job, the tail lamps and everything about the car is just mindblowing.

Wonderful pics. Thanks for sharing.

You thought right Sam. What a job that would be.

But getting it back for the show on time would have been a real challenge. One bhp'ian to another "Aur time hai Sam bhai, petrol leke aao jaldi, 2 round aur marenge". LOL. Translation - There is still more time Sam brother, go get some petrol quick, we'll do 2 more rounds.

I guess the shade is as such.Gives a black tinge at certain angles. I didn't pay attention to that aspect,but I believe the shade looks different with the sunlight hitting it at different angles.
