I think it’s one of the best looking Gallardos I’ve seen if I’m honest just happened to be watching it for the past year amongst a few other cars

Firstly, click-clack mated to a naturally aspirated 5.0L V10 - what is not to like?

As for the "bog standard" comment, this car has the classic clean lines of the coupe with the correct Callisto wheels: no soft top, no pre-historic e-gear system, no stripes, no spoilers. The original poster on-the-wall for many - admittedly this would have probably been Aranchio (orange).

The CATS came out clean, and swapped with Larini Sports CATS, and now the engine will be pretty much bullet-proof.. no ceramic bits in this engine. The car is serviced with one of the best oils on the market, Millers NT+ 10W50. Good luck buying your £60-£70k e-gear with 40k miles on the clock, with original CATS and serviced with a Mobil 1 5W30 all its life.

There are a few more 6-speed manual coupes pre-2006, which if you want to travel in 1st gear all day long, again good luck with that. As for the post-2006 manual coupes, you could probably count the number on one hand in the UK.

Price may be high for some, but it will get there, and in the mean time I will be enjoying it.

But also you’ve also got to remember this car as nice as it is and looked after has been for sale for over a year, it’s swapped between mid 80s to 90s to 129 then to 97k now the market was in a lot better shape a year ago and it wasn’t selling, which means it was priced too high, and now with coronavirus affecting cars it still probably won’t sell at that price!

If it’s still for sale in a year or 2s time when I’ve cleared my mortgage I’d have it but I suspect it won’t be

Edit: just read the last bit and notice it looks like it’s your car,

How long has it been for sale as I’ve been watching it over 12 months

About a year.

Like I said I will enjoy it in the mean time, and am not in a rush to sell.

Its possible it may never sell!

At that price I would suggest you don’t really want to sell it at all. So, take it off the market, enjoy it to its full. Trying to talk up the market really doesn’t work.

Talking down egear also just demonstrates a lack of understanding of what egear is and how it works, not to mention how insanely fun it is to actually use, properly. Like the early manual cars with very long 1st gears, early egear cars can be interesting too (it’s the same gearbox) but 2006 on, very sorted and especially in Gen 2 cars.

Always best to just state the merits (In your opinion) of your car not at the expense of other cars. People have different preferences and if someone is in the market for one like yours, they will come.

This Spyder Manual on PH classifieds looks like a cracking deal.

Hadn’t noticed that. Let me tell you where I am at...I’m out.

Albeit personally I’d want full service

I am hoping that the even rarer LP560 manual rises in value even more wink

I have owned mine for two years now and still love it. I have been to see other cars (458 & performante) but would still keep the LP560 manual and buy something, than replace it!

Rubbish Andrew, delaying a service to 2yearly in such a low mileage car does not detract from the car, it's clearly in superb condition from the pics, not a spec of rust on the rotors or hubs.... That's a nice car

Absolutely.


I reckon with a full Lambo PPI, Major service & new set of tyres; that would be an awesome car for the money.

I'm considering selling my LP550-2 manual and, even though it is rare and immaculate, I'm going to have to accept a lot less than the c. £150k+ they were being advertised for a year or so ago (advertised not necessarily selling for that price). Anyhow, I'm sure someday they will go for that kind of money, so I'm undecided....

How much in all honesty is it worth?

Definitely a 1st world problem....!
At the moment it's probably worth just over £100k, but the thing is I fancy 'project' cars - when they're sorted, I get bored. But the soundtrack tho'... rotate ...priceless
