PS :..........
Buy the right model and it will rise in value like a luxury penthouse.
If you want driving pleasure, the hard top is the car.
If you want posing pleasure and hot young women following you around.........then buy the spyder.
If you want resale.........buy the spyder or a Ferrari.

If you consider the Ferrari, yes........you should get better resale unless you buy a modern day Mondial.
But you get much bigger repair costs and a car always in the workshop gathering dust.
That is why most knowledgeable Ferrari owners always take their cars to Lamborghini for service and repairs.
They are not only fixed, but often improved.

For Efast.........

I don't know much about modern Lambo's, except they have lost their direction.
When they started, Lambo's were always twice the car any Ferrari could be.
That is why Ferricio built them........to show Enzo how a Ferrari should be built, but never were.

Peter Mitchel started Automobili Lamborghini in Australia when he lost interest in his half built Ferrari and then discovered Lamborghini.
As his best friend, my uncle became his QLD agent in the early 1970's.

Do your homework Efast........
Do you want a drive car, or a super car ?

The three best drive cars ever built are probably the Lambo P300 Urraco, Dino Ferrari and Porsche's 928 S.
These are supercars any one can drive........and I mean anyone.
The Urraco and the first 2 Dino models will always rise in value.........
They are a bargain at todays prices, and it is cheaper to keep them as new, than buy a modern pretender.

Remember.........the Muira SV with it's 6 dual throat Webbers made the twin turbo Countach look slow as a Morris.
Give the Muira a front spoiler to keep it on the road, and no DRIVER would want anything else.......
Except maybe a GT40 Mark 3.
But only a Formula 1 race driver can drive the Muira SV.........was never built for mere mortals to drive.
The Urraco, Dino and 928 S were..........
And no modern bull dust that keeps the accountants happy.

I'm not sure what planet you're from, but - welcome to mine! :thumbsup:

Interesting comment. I love Miuras. 928S was probably the best all round road car Ive ever driven for comfort and performance, awesome car in its day. Uracco my fave Hot Wheels car as a kid even though I didnt have a clue what one looked like in real life. I love the blue one that was/is for sale on Carsales and 246's rock, gorgeous car....

But where did this comment come from? For what purpose?

Never been in a 928, Uracco isn't that pretty, isn't much of a sports car (definitely a GT), but that engine is amazing, and sounds like hell on northern suburbs.

Never been in a 246, but have spent time chasing them, sound decent - but let's be honest, they are pretty much contesting for pinnacle of automotive beauty.

Anotherforumuser.........

That was for the Sydney man looking to buy a Lambo.......
Just a few things for him to consider.

The Later Urraco's with no water problems (rain getting sucked up by the carbies) were super quick, stopped as well as anything, and handled as well as anything.
They are also very undervalued.

The first 2 Dino's were nearly as good.........
As you said........the 928 S does it all.

For Ash.........
You can probably pick up a 928 S for about $20,000 in mint condition.
They are very quick, handle, stop and are a large car.........a bit like an Espada.

You don't like the Urraco..........read up on the motor shows etc.
Many enthusiasts consider it the best looking car ever.
Like you........i wouldn't go that far.
For looks, i prefer the original Dino.
For driving pleasure, or fast, the Urraco might be the perfect road car.........not the fastest.

None of these are sports cars.......
if you want a sports car, then buy a Clubman or a Morgan......even a TR6.
Even a real Cooper s  if you want a sports car with a roof.
( Beware..........the new mini's are just a small BMW.......no more a mini than a Skoda is an Aston Martin)

I always thougt the 928S was a Porsche mistake, never took them seriously like the 944 but never driven one either.

I would have thought it would be impossible to find one in mint condition.

I worked for the Porsche dealership when they were new.  I borrowed one overnight way back then and was very impressed.  More of a GT than a sports car but great engine sound and meaty steering is what I recall.

Maybe but I never thought of them as a real "Porsche" the only real Porsche is a 911 or at least that look ala Boxster or Cayman.
