There’s 2 superleggeras at 89k ok one is categorised but can’t see if the other is

One is on a third engine as I understand and an ex-hire car. At the end of the day you get what you pay for.

How does the Superleggera compare to the (standard) Huracan?

Well that is an interesting question.

Standard Huracan:

1. Newer and more modern
2. Technically more advanced - PlayStation dashboard; Cruise Control etc
3. Dual Clutch for smoother driving and smoother gear changes - Better for daily driving
4. Way way more of them. Huracan has been on production since 2014 and in the last 5 years they have already built more than the entire production run of Gallardo, let alone SLs.
5. Pretty cool interior styling.
6. Instagram we and YouTube epic fail star (usually due to the numpties behind the wheel to be fair)

Superleggera Gallardo (SL and SL2)

1. IMO a more complete package visually and still stands up well today.
2. Beautifully Analogue - Like a fine watch. None of the digital nonsense...
3. Single Clutch for momentous gear changing fun - upshiifts at full chat are gloriously brutal and downshifts that make the hairs on the back of your neck stand up
4. Way more exclusive
5. Epic theatre compared to standard Huracan

Now, for those who know me and based on previous posts on this very thread, I admit I may be slightly biased....but only slightly. wink

Different cars. SL is something special and rare for weekend blast that is raw but not uncomfortable and very rare. Hurricane outstanding modern go fast daily car with super car performance and looks. Smooth digital feel and wife could take it to Tesco but as with most lambos you rarely ever see them on the road as daily cars. I have a mk SL and also a new 991 Gt3 Rs gen 2. The RS you could easily drive as a daily if u want to apart for the in your face looks. It is like a fast version of my boxster s. Comfy quiet and easy to live with. The SL you really wouldn’t want to take into town traffic never mind run as a daily. But for an evening blast it’s outstanding. Tbh you really need both a modern hurricane for general use and a SL for the race car feel. All depends on what you want to use the cars for really.

Thank you for the responses, very helpful.

I've decided I want one of them in the new year, and leaning towards the SL. I tend to use my sports cars very rarely, maybe once a week, so getting rid of them and want something a bit more special. The Huracan and SL are in similar price brackets now so hopefully the question wasn't as daft as it sounded.

Does anyone know anything about the black SL on 50k miles that's come up for sale? Or does anyone have a LHD - how do you get on with it?

There are so few SL's for sale at any time it is really difficult to see whether prices on them are coming down in line with the rest of the market. If an SL2 was to ever go under the £90-100k mark I think that would make it a really attractive proposition.

There are only about 11 or so SL2s in the Country, even fewer SL1s although oddly no How Many Left data on the SL1 specifically. That said, there is one Verde Ithaca SL2 up for £110k, which is a beautiful example and well specified. If I were to punt mine privately I would pitch at £110k ish also, but be prepared to deal a bit lower, ideally no less than £100k. The market is what it is.

There are 3 SL1s currently. Two at around £80k and one highly optimistic and way above market at £115k. That one has been on the market for a very long time. Odd that.

Have never found an my friend. Data on how many SL 1s there are. I heard they made 40 with about 20 left.

Price wise. Circa £100k ish. Low mileage sl2 probably £110k plus A lot depends on mileage history and condition. I paid over £100k for 17k mile white one. With full history and have spent £6k on it with service and ppf in last couple of months.

Winter good time to buy if anyone is desperate to sell.

Looks like an import and doesn't have the high rear wing. Good price though.

Just looked again, LHD. Simon Furlonger had a black one. Might have had a chequered past though if it's the one I am thinking off.

Yes I have seen the Verde Ithaca SL2 for sale, it looks stunning. Unless I am mistaken I am sure this has been on sale for months and months so either the market for SL's is really slow or the car is not checking out for some reason.

Initially the price was set higher than it is now and in my opinion was way too high for retail outside the Lambo main dealer network. I suspect it is on SOR and the owner was being too optimistic. This is why it sat a while. It is more realistically priced now though, but I think the sweet spot for a deal would be at £95k - £100k. The market is tough if you are trying to offload right now. Does this seller recognise that? Not sure.

The Amari one is my old car. I spent a lot of time finding the car when I bought it 4.5yrs ago. It’s lovely and whatever it needed got spent on it. Comes with all the tools, books, wallet, two sets of keys.

I agree, in todays market which seems to be getting slower by the day I think a price of circa. £90-95k is probably where they become more attractive.
