That's a great first 500 miles impressions update Julian.
That's amazing that the original battery has lasted about 12 years presumably on something like a ctek charger full time when not being driven.
For a regular not necessarily daily driver, 4-5 years seems about the norm in my use.

You mention how you have found the gearbox, steering, ride, brakes, etc. This may be a good place to provide a link to sunnym3's previous post where JayEmm reviewed sunny's Superleggera 570-4. JayEmm has his own Scuderia so is in an ideal position to be able to comment about how they compare. He also mentions these points. The speed of the gearchanges can be heard which certainly still sound acceptably quick for a car that was introduced back in 2010. Obviously speed of gearchange has moved on 13 years later.

Here's the link to sunnym3's previous post: https://www.pistonheads.com/gassing/topic.asp?h=0&...
When you start the video there is about a 3.00 min introduction when you wonder if you are watching the right video before the Lambo content starts. Overall he "enjoyed this a lot more than I thought I might".

What is very interesting is how I have instantly fallen in love with owning the car - I don’t even think it’s necessarily a competency thing - it’s just a mix of traits that make it special. It is a shame there are not some more owners on here to contribute. If we are patient, maybe that will happen.

This one has been advertised at Motorhub for several years. LJ13 AUU can still be found on an MOT search but has no MOT history!
They still have the car, apparently its "part of their collection" and was last serviced in 2020.
Motorhub has now added some more current photos of their Edizione Tecnica. Perhaps it’s time to move it on from the Collection.

The 'Superlegg' is very difficult to sell as such small market of people who actually want them. Also the spread in pricing is quite large considering one of the white cars above with only 12000m miles is being sold at £112k, seems a very cheap car!
I've had my one for sale for a while, just no takers....I think I will just have to bite the bullet and re finance it!

Got to be honest, as someone who is currently looking for a car to buy, I think all superleg are just too expensive, for the 110-169k that they are online I’d rather put my money into a huracan or 720s or 600lt

Congrats on buying the grey Superleggera. Grigio Telesto is fairly rare for the 570-4. I'm only aware of your 2012 (assuming that it has steel brakes as opposed to the advertised carbon ceramic discs) and a 2013 car in the UK.

What attracted you to a Superleggera as opposed to the Ferrari and McLaren alternatives, or even a Huracan?

I'd rather a sl than a early huracan, unless you obsessed with having a double clutch gearbox.... Not tempted to a huracan until the tecnica from my gallardo and the later is a keeper... Not too digital, just enough analogue

A lot of todays people don’t want that though they want out n out performance so would ppl buy a superleg at 110+ or would they buy a 650s/720s

I’d love a gallardo superleg but not at 110+ and as the other poster said not many are buying them,

the pursuit of out and out performance bemuises me, i had a 4wd gallardo with a mere 520 bhp and felt that was simply too fast for the roads, i dont go on track, i upgraded to a 2wd gallardo.... slower it is but way more fun, and on b roads that all you can really do, have a bit of fun....

and the lp gallardo's are rock solid reliable..

But it’s the way of the world, the sl will appeal to some but most would look at what else they can get for the money,

If they’re not selling then the prices are too high

I have also been seriously tempted by a SL (less so the Performante). It is a niche market for sure given that you can pick up a Huracan or 458/488 for not a huge amount more.

Looking at the last couple of these that sold on the likes of CC they made it into the £90s so not exactly a big sample but from this it suggests the gap between advertised prices and what people may be prepared to pay is fairly large hence the same cars sticking around.

I think I've only seen one LP-570 Superleggera go through CC in the last few years. The guy selling it was quite desperate to sell due to divorce, was willing to take a big hit on it. In the end, think he managed to keep it.

So I grew up with the car on my bedroom wall as my dream car and it wasn't until recently that the business had grown and I could afford to buy one. Childhood dream car!

I've been trying to find some history out about the car and the numbers in the UK. How do you know there are only two around?

It's a modern classic and get's far more attention compared to a Huracan in my opinion anyway!
