Just bought my first Lamborghini - a perf Spyder. Coming from a McLaren 650S Spyder. Considered a 720 Spyder although the deal on the perf was better, and tbh I wanted to try something different rather than a 650++

Excited - collect Tuesday

Congrats !

Completely different car to the 650S spider which is an awesome car in its own right.
Grin factor will be up from 9 to 11 due to the V10 N /A engine and sound.
650S is probably more overall accomplished car as a daily driver though
Enjoy

Should a Supercar be any good at being a daily driver??

Surely part of the Supercar ownership proposition is that it’s a bit challenging for the mundane stuff, i.e. parking at Tesco’s...

Technology has moved on so personally I don't think the mundane stuff needs to be compromised like the good old days lol
Because a supercar can be Jekyll and Hyde doesn't make it any less a supercar IMHO.
Both the McLaren and Lambo achieve this but more so the Mclaren due to the hydraulic suspension and better driving position and visibility.

A supercar without compromise is rare and in my book it makes it better not worse even if some consider it less " special "

Are Evo's selling that well ?
As a standard model upgrade I think its a step up from the original Huracan but there is no way would I pay more for an Evo than a Performante because of an irritating touch screen. A final Performante or STS version of the Evo might be interesting but that could be £300k+ and wouldn't warrant the extra £120k IMHO over a current Performante
EVO's are moving with discounts. it's too overpriced imo. Check my other post about the STO, the car is going to be insane.

I really like the new EVO RWD..Its strikes me as real old school with no 4WD,RWS or Turbos..Icing on the cake is it doesn't seem to have GPFs which probably makes it the best sounding new car you can buy today..Out of interest what kind od deals can you get on one of these.?

You might get ppf thrown in???

Just depends on luck of the dealer, and what their allocation/order situation is.

I'm toying with the idea of a Huracan, possibly a Performante. What is the warranty situation with them? Is it a must have? I'm coming from potentially buying a Mclaren where warranties are a MUST! And what is the typically cost of one from a dealer?

Mclaren Warranties are not a must.......it's only a must if you read the drivel perpetuated (mainly by non owners) on forums like this........neither of my McLarens have ever spent a day at the dealership for anything mechanical.......you might decide that having one would help you sleep easy at night......thats different......otherwise, buy one and enjoy it, they are great, great cars!!

Although, I do have a real hankering to come back to Lambo currently.......

I am on my 5th Lamborghini and have had no issues apart from a sticky electric window winder on my first Huracan, however I wouldn't buy a supercar without a warrantee having paid for a Ferrari engine rebuild once.
Good thread on owning a Mac, warts and all! https://www.pistonheads.com/gassing/topic.asp?h=0&...
Suppose it depends on what you call an issue and how much you like popping back to the dealer but for me the niggles would be too much and a warrantee an absolute necessity. In my opinion of course.

The Perf has 3 years manufacturers warranty which can be extended.

Hi guys. I just picked up a perf up a couple of weeks ago. I wanted a Lambo since I was a kid and finally got to fulfil that dream.

I have gone for Arancio Borealis. It's the best car I've ever driven.

Hope to meet some of you other owners at some meets.

Lovely car, in fact I'm pretty sure I have give your car some beans through the twists in eastern Essex and as a result very very nearly brought it. Bottled it in favour of Verde Mantis in the end. Did it belong to someone that your recognize on the V5?

Excellent choice of colour, although as a fellow Arancio Borealis HP (Spyder) owner I guess you'd expect me to say that!

Enjoy - they're awesome!

Verde Mantis are the fastest ones.
Amazing colour so vibrant with lovely gold fleck - its why I chose over Arancio Borealis which just looked a little sun bleached to me.

I did consider having a car ad personum in McLaren Ventura Orange which again is very bright and has lots of fleck but at £15k I knew I wouldnt get the money back in 2 years
