Hi all,

I am in need of some advice for finding a salvagable wreck/or similar, for a Murcielago hardtop.

If you know of any here in AUS, any contacts you can put me in touch with, would be much appreciated.

I would also like similar knowledge of trying to source one through Europe, Middle East, Asia, or the US. Contacts, and/or websites would be good starting points.

Many Thanks

Have you got a Murcielago that has been written off here in Australia?

Sounds like it would be better to dig a big hole in the back yard and pour money into it...............................

No, that is what I am in need of.

Any leads?

The white (painted over yellow) bodykitted thing with FAIR number plates in VIC was totalled a couple of months ago.

I'm pretty sure I saw it a month or so ago at the panel beaters on hoddle street. Not sure where it got hit but the back of the car seemed fine

Whole side, bent roof, erc

Initial parts alone quote was $143k without knowing the unseen damage. One would say for a badly painted and chopped bodykitted Singapore import, that would make it a write off. But  I suppose it could hit the road again as a cheap chop shop special.

Try calling Shannons Insurance and asking if they had any write offs they were selling of putting up for auction? There won't be too many insurance companies handling the cars that have been written off lately.

Are you looking for the running gear to put into something else?

Car still had the plates on it when I saw it, I would have thought plates would have been removed if the owner got paid out
