I bought a Fiat 500 Abarth for kicks and need a custom license plate, I am thinking "LP160" with a Lambo license plate frame. That or "LILLMBO/BBLAMBO".

Or I may get this, FYI 22350 is the basic speed law in CA, so all my cop friends love it.

Nice! I love the LP160 idea personally. Such a fun little car.

The LP160 is not really correct no matter how you look at it. The LP refers to the Longitudinal Posterior engine layout on a Lambo. A 500 Abarth is transverse so all you are really quoting is the horsepower with no real tie to Lamborghini. I have a Murcielago and a 1964 Fiat 500. Both have LP engine configurations with slightly different power outputs smile.gif

Top Gear: In eleven years at the company you’ve met a huge number of your customers, can you tell us what a typical Lamborghini owner is like?

Stephan Winkleman: It seems very superficial, but it’s really male. Usually, they’re all self-made men – ranging from those in the 20s right up to men in their 70s. They’re very proud of their product, and they have no fear to be seen in a car like this.

And when I speak to them, I feel that they buy into a world, not only into a product. So it’s also a lifestyle, an idea they see behind that. And they enjoy the car as something that is rewarding them for the hard work they’re doing, or a dream that came true after, say, saving for 20 years.

Last thing I want to do is be a buzzkill. At the same time there are a ton of really great options with a FIAT 500 and LP160 is perhaps a little too vague even for the most ardent Lambo fan. From what I hear you will need to know your plate in owning a modern FIAT 500....every time you call AAA biggrin.gif
