I've been thinking... instead of still searching for that elusive Diablo Roadster, I could use that money and the money that I would get from selling all my other cars, and buy a LP640. Roger's car is very tempting.

I might test the market in the very near future and see what happens.

Realistically, if I have a LP640, would I ever drive the other cars? I don't think so. Just being realistic.

S4s + 348 + Diablo = LP640?
You make something idiotproof, they'll make a better idiot.

I really think you would have a hard time selling the S4s - there is just too much sentimental value attached.   :(





But then again you do have another one that will help you through the days you wished you hadn't sold it, maybe.     :scratchchin:

I did the same thing quite a few years ago (not with the exotica you have or are buying) but got rid 3 of my cars to buy 1 & it was never the same again :( If I had my time again & the choice you have, I would not do do it! But that is a very tempting decision, as you say but not the hardest decision you will ever make as I think a lot of people wouldn't mind having that dilema :D

Let's go test drive Scud's car to see if that helps with the decision  :D
C'mon, do it!

Massive pillar of salt with my thoughts as usual... (just got home from being out drinking for 14 hours)

I would prefer the garage of 3-4 different purpose awesome cars if it's sustainable.

I can't possibly denigrate the LP640, but it's not the be-all/end-all car as it's still being developed, plus we adore the shape right now but who's to say this won't be a very "noughties" look when the next version comes out?

The Diablo roadster has always been a dream - and I think one worth fighting for.  No it's not as easy or "nice" etc to drive as a modern Lambo, I guess it depends where that desire wells from.  Sadly for me I remember a crappy video game around the time Doogie Howser was huge where they showed a brief video of a Diablo, for me that's my defining moment - I want one just to remember that moment as a kid looking at that car and thinking "holy fuckamoley I want that!" - and actually achieving it. 

Of course then it's just a chase for pussy. :p

This is a very 80's kid viewpoint, I've loved every minute in the LP640 - but every millisecond in the Countach is just sublime.  Personally, I don't have the "hero connection" with the Murcielago if you know what I mean.  I grew up fantasizing about the Countach and Diablo.  Got more to the point, later. :p

(note: I've only been pax in Murcis and Diablos)

id prefer to have the 3 than the 1
spread your risk
some asshole could run up the back of you, something mechanically could go wrong etc.
I figure if you have 2 other choices and that occurs, youre in a better position

Just ensure you sell the current collection to the AE "community" and then you won't lose touch with these loved ones.

Don't think of it as losing a car; think of it as gaining a driver.

Just wondering if you have seen this one, http://www.trademe.co.nz/Trade-Me-Motors/Cars/Lamborghini/Lamborghini/auction-250125015.htm. Been on the market for quite a while over there now, NZ is obviously missing enthusiasts such as yourself.

Maybe hang out for an LP640 roadster to pop up over here...
