Right so the boys on LP are reporting that Lambo is about to release the 550-2 as a non-limited edition. It's going to have no stripe (interior or exterior) and an improved rear suspension set up. Meant to be coming in cheaper than the 560 but you can choose from the entire 560 options list.

Gonna piss off some Balboni owners.

Why? This was always the plan.

Oh yeah, but half the people that buy these cars don't float around on forums so don't know what's happening. Bi like Sam Newman and the roadster debacle

I think he bought a Murci and when Lambo brought out the LP640 he tried to sue them because apparently they told him there wouldn't be an upgrade... or something.

Oh i see, How could you no think a update model wasnt on the cards at some point during a cars life cycle.

i agree but it was said that newman sued them because lambo dealer told him there was no new model pending when he bought the murcie.

i think that was in '05, the lp640 came out in '06. lambo dealer would've known in '05 that there was a new one coming out in '06, no?

i think that's what it was about anyway :scratchchin:

that's about it....

Newman was lied to, and he called them out.

and won.

I respect the man  :thumbsup: He's WAY smarter than he comes across as.  :tilt:

It's important to note that Newman's argument was with the dealer, not Lamborghini itself.

my personal view (going by what the media said :rolleyes:) is dealer should've known that there was a new model coming out.

on the other hand, if you're spending $700k+ on a car, you should do your homework. probably would've found that a new one was going to come out in the next year

besides, you shouldn't believe everything a sales person says :doh:
