Thanks guys! 

Are you going to recreate the chase scene from Miami Vice but with a Countach and Jalpa? Because...now that would be something!

But I could use my Testarossa for that!

That's right, they used the Daytona,  so in theory, using the Testarossa would be quite appropriate! That would be a riot to see!

I saw it today for the first time. Didnt drive it, but sat in it, started it.. Initially feeling is that it is very roomy and comfortable. Much more so than the Countach and Testarossa.  Clutch engagement is fine, but the throttle seems very stiff.  Build quality is not up to the Countach or Testarossa.  Very on the fence with the wing. Everyone telling me to keep it, versus this is the one car Ive always envisioned without one.

FINALLY!!! I’m stoked you got one. The gas pedal is very very long in its engagement but shouldn’t be stiffer than a Countach. It should have a choke under the handbrake which is usually stiff to operate but very useful when the car is cold and you want to warm it up. Make sure you upgrade your windows so they go up and down at a normal speed. When removing the top make sure to put the windows down and seats forward before you try and store it behind the seats. If you have any questions then let me know as I’m on my second one. Get an exhaust system made as soon as possible as the Jalpa sounds great with one!

The wing makes that car imo.

I just dont know. I do think the wing looks better on a car with bravos, then it does the regular wheels.

What did you do to your windows?

I usually vote for keeping a classic car original but it looks so sleek without the wing. That wingless profile is gorgeous.

100% agree! It may be lack of sleep, but it's reminiscent of the early Countach profiles, a bit of a wedge on the back half.

Either would be great, but seeing it without the wing it feels much more essential without. Granted, you can't go wrong either way.
