I am wondering which is more important for car lovers - the satisfaction of owning a car that you desired and love ( regardless of public opinion) or the satisfaction of making others drool. I wonder.

Regards

AM kinda baffled Kd.
Not that Lp560 is not to my liking(ah give me any of them) but why another LP?
Is it cos you planning to sell 640?
If i rem correctly you were selling 640 cos of GC issues so will 560 make any difference?

BTW - Congrats on another italian

Edit - @issigonis- For me its the satisfaction of owning what i love and not what people drool on. I presume that will be an ego thing then a satisfaction.

Yes it is because it is to be sold. And yes it is much more drivable with ample GC and comfort to be a DD

Haven't you customised the LP640 with the KDS written on the doors?? So does the person buying this car have to live with it or can Lambo change that for him?

That can be easily changed.

Black with black/red interior. Getting it from an importer as Exclusive motors doesn't know about handling clients and lies. They aren't even authorized dealer. Just a mere importer.

Wow! Nice color there..Congrats!
What made you change your mind from the Balboni and go for the regular LP?!
The latter would have been more exclusive and a tad cheaper too!

Karan an OT question here, How do you maintain your cars? I mean what products do you use to keep your cars shiny, any special kind of waxes or shampoos? Do you have car detailing people come down to your place and take care of your beauties? Now that you're buying a black car, make sure you train your chauffeurs how to wash a black car

A white LP560-4 looks the best IMHO.

However, at the end of the day, a Lambo is still a Lambo.

The Lambo looks menacing. But sad to know that the Murcie will be leaving your garage. Won't you miss that v12 howl once its gone?

Shamik, that is yet to be seen. The 640 may or may not be sold. If we don't get any good offers soon, it won't be sold.
