Yes, apparently it's a common myth that tuning company badges make your car bigger and badder...complementing the ego of the individual who dons them on in the first place.

Well the Lamborghini dealer did give me this info first hand that the balloon white LP was sold to him and a few members here did take his pictures in the LP. The rumor mill also says that the White LP has been sold due to its low ground clearance and difficulty in daily driving. Don't know how true that is.

Was just wondering,, Can't LP buyers just bend over for once and see the ground clearance to know that if it is going to work out in India or not?

Now that's a vain garage if I've ever seen one. No offence to anyone.

Sure, may be you could find us one for display purposes. Like where do you suppose there is one for display that one can go and check it out?

Yes , that is the case here with me. All the information I had about the LP was from my cousin in L.A as he had driven one extensively and from reviews on the net.
I did not have the time to travel to europe or the States to see cars before I buy them. I do not know how many of the present 8 LP owners had the opportunity to check the cars out before buying them.
I did , however , had the chance to check out the FS and Porsche before buying them.

Is that a lp640 under the cover?Im asking because of the depressions in the cloth where the cover of the engine is.Looks like the same design.
