geez!

so it actually would cost another $20,000 to convert the lambo from a LHD to RHD???

i mean what would need to be engineered on a lambo to make it compliant here?

you have your emissions laws yada yada, however don't the current countaches that are here in the country at the moment have the original euro spec v12's?

i can't imagine it would be that much!

$20k disappears very quickly when you're paying other people to do something.  This isn't something you can do with a couple mates over a slab of VB on a sunday arvo.

I'm not 100%, but I think engineers need to do tests too, more $$$$.

hi guys,

i just bought a LHD QV5000 BULL to add to the horse stable.  Anyone know of who can convert it for me?

It was hmmm sort of an impulse buy....wife "not happy Jan"!!!!!

But i told her it would be cheaper than a mid life mistress in the long run.

At 44  i dont think i can handle two 22 year olds!

it's on the boat from USA.  88 QV5000 fuel injected 5.2ltr. Same engine as aniversary, but the interior is same as the older model.  USA cars had different engine setup than UK cars due to the emmissions requirements. Got to get rid of those yankie bumpers!

It's an 80's thing.  I got the Testarossa, so i had to compare the alternative poster car.  These things are getting ridiculously expensive, so when i was offered one at the right price...well it was sort of an impulse buy.

It was get a new daily driver  or get this.  I figure i will keep the daily driver another 3 years because if i buy a new daily driver it will depreciate 50% in 3 years. 

Or buy this, have some fun and hopefully get my money back one day.
