Unless that supercar is an early Murci. lol.gif



Is it bad that what bothers me most about that pic are his bat wings not being adjusted, his painted mirrors, and that awful exhaust?

A car and a horse have a lot in common. Time does not stop just because you have put them in their stall. They need the same care whether you use them or not.

Yes, that is my old car. I had the mirriors painted. The wings were always good, even up to this accident, dont know what caused that. The exhaust was al Burtoni at the time. That accident happend here in Seattle to the guy I sold it to. He had it repaired and it still lives with him here in Seattle.

Hey Roy, what are your thoughts about a 40th anniversary edition, mint 2 owner car?

Ange


I would say that an 03 40th Anniversary car is stronger than an E-Gear LP640, all other factors (miles/condition/originality) being equal. I would put the value ranking here:

Manual LP670 (3 US cars)
Manual LP640 Roadster (8 US cars)
E-Gear LP670 (37 US cars)
Manual LP640 Coupe (19 US cars)
03 40th Anniversary Murcielago (50 Worldwide)
E-Gear LP650 Roadster (50 Worldwide)
Manual 05-06 Roadster (<60 US cars)
E-Gear LP640 Roadster
E-Gear LP640 Coupe
Manual 05-06 Coupe
Manual 02-04 Coupe
E-Gear 04-06 Coupe

The right color or options could definitely shuffle them up a bit but I would say that is the hierarchy color/miles/options being reasonably similar.

It would also be interesting to discuss the ranked order of color desirability. Here is my off-the-cuff order of the reasonably well known colors.

Verde Ithaca (& Verde Artemis)
Monterey Blue
Arancio Atlas
Blu Cepheus
Viola Ophelia
Bianco Canopus
Oro Adonis
Nero Nemesis
Rosso Vik
Balloon White
Grigio Telesto
Oro Elios
Giallo Midas
Bianco Isis
Rosso Andromeda
Grigio Avalon (and other gray/silvers)
Blue Fontus
Blue Hera
Nero Aldebaran

Obviously there are another couple dozen colors represented in rare quantities but that accounts for over 95% of the US cars.

It is also worth noting that an abnormally high portion of the Murcielago population has been damaged, significantly modified, or poorly maintained. There are lots of factors for this but the high rear weight distribution, significant early depreciation due to the poor condition of the US economy, and the dealer network challenges early in the car's life have all created an environment where perhaps up to half of the cars have a significant history issue that would negatively influence the value. The overall production is ultra-rare relatively to anything preached as rare in a modern context so I agree that there is great upside across the range.

Iím sure stimpty will have a perfect explanation why this happened, or claim itís photoshopped icon_mrgreen.gif


Uh, texting while driving? Maybe drunk?

Are you suggesting this Hyundai minivan has better braking performance than the Murci?

Think before you post.

Except you left off what must be one of the most popular colors: Giallo Orion

Correct, sort of. I put it down as Giallo Midas rather than Orion. Midas is the same paint on a Gallardo.
