What's a Galardo worth in the UK, I have seen them anywhere from 59k to 199k depending on what they are???

it's too new to import.

the idea of the rule is to prop up the values here by protecting the market.

Just as an example. If you can buy one in the UK for 59k:

That will be $124k in our money(with the exchange rate atm) before you do any transportation, importing, etc, etc, etc, etc.

There are Taxes to pay, including LCT. The RAWS will charge you about $50k give or take(never asked so not 100% sure on this).

So I reckon it will be close to $250k ready to drive.

And I really don't know how good a car you will get for 59k pounds.

good point, do you own a lambo yourself? my first will be in a couple of years when i get the money. probably a manual 2004 gallardo, cheapest now is 260k but should be down to 200k within a year or 2. i could offer less because of the financial crisis.

I could nearly turn to the dark side for an LP560-4.

whatever floats your boat I guess....

Personally, the LP560-4 does it for me  :thumbsup:

Not yet, I don't think the world is ready for me to be owning a Lambo just yet.


But I do have a Ferrari(and I don't care what you guys say, it has Ferrari badges on it so that is what it is!!!)    :D
