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...

Lovely find, that Roadster looks Beeeeeudiful...

Note at the bottom of his ad:

**** MAY TRADE PROPERTY or BUILDER IN MANGAWAI AREA ****


If any Builder is kidnapped in that area, the finger's going to be pointed at Andecorp!   :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. 

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


That's exactly how I am thinking too. I am just trying to use my head and justify it by saying that if I have a LP640, would I bother driving anything else?

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

I've always thought that way too.

Yeah, she is STUNNING. But in the wrong country. Too hard to import one.

Much as I love my LP (more than the Gallardos for some reason), I couldn't stand it as my only car. Apart from being impractical in town, the constant gawking gets too much after a while. (Mind you, just thinking about it makes me want take it out for a burble in the sun!)

I'd keep that beautiful yellow Lotus no matter what. :thumbsup:
