How do they hold up as a track car?

maybe as an alternative to the GT3 / AMG GTR?
can be quite expensive to run
Brakes a little inadequate then? hehe

I had a series 1 SL and utterly adored it, it was brutally fast car and sublime handling and was fabulous on track and kept up easily with modern day Supercars such a Pista's and Speciale's. Mine was a one owner car from the EU and I done 12,000km in it in 4yrs of ownership and loved every minute it. The car was literally perfect and unmessed with.

The steering wheel wasn't great if I was being picky, but I never got round to doing it. I would have kept it but a Diablo SV (at Amari) came up and I couldn't say no and we agreed a good deal and I was sad to see it go as it was probably one of the best in the UK, but I had always wanted a Diablo. It was LHD and did sell fairly quick as it was priced right at the time-£80k. It went to Austria where the owner immediately put it up for sale for a premium and I kept track of it for a while but it is no longer for sale

Overall maintenance wise no issues, it was on the original clutch and I had to reverse up a gradient into my garage and had no issues. I had a slight issue with the speed sensors quite early on-a cheap fix. I went through 2 sets of tyres as it was tracked (as it should be!!!) and just regular servicing.

If I had the money and space I would buy it back in a heartbeart. Special cars, but still haven't found their rightful place in this market when you look at 360CS and 430 Scud values.
I think your car is still for sale - wasn’t it this one?

Does anyone on here track their SL? Any pointers?

I’ve viewed the Amari car last weekend and left a deposit, waiting for a main dealer service and health check now.

Luckily my F80 M3 sold 10 minutes after going on autotrader and I believe it’s being collected Sunday. Desperate for it’s replacement now, even looking to joint SCD so I use it more

Interested in more views on this to, tested the Aventador svj for a few days the other day as an occasional track car and theres no way for me so the SL has come into focus more, though i really want a V12.

The noise on the AV is second to none IMO

I know, its a shame, been listening to the Vanquish V12S which revs to 7k but the SVJs limiter was 8,500, in the tunnels through italy it was something me or my wife will never forget.

To be fair to the Vanquish I think it sounds better low to mid tbh, the SVJ only sounded good right at the top.

I’m wandering if a completely separate, additional track car might be a solution but i really dont want the hassle of 5 cars tbh.

Well I bought it! Car is immaculate and had a full health check and service at Lamborghini before I picked it up. Had it a week now and done like 660 miles, took it to the super car driver secret meet and had a great day.

No regrets as yet.

Amari were really good to be honest.

I’ve got fluid and DS29 pads to go in, trackday end of September at Donington to try her out.

Driven it loads so far and can’t stop smiling
