As per my other post,
I’m very close to buying a 2015 huracan, 7k miles and full lambo, 2 owner car.
Dealer seems very decent and answers any questions etc. but of course yes they are selling me a car.

Anyways,
I’m trying to get an idea of option costs for this car.
I will post a link so that people can have a look at the car and here are the options listed :

The factory options fitted to our vehicle are as follows:

- CCB with red-painted brake calipers
- Bluetooth preparation (hands-free profile)
- Front and rear parking sensors
- Anti-theft system
- Electric and heated seats
- Navigation System
- Elegante interior (bicolour in leather)
- Roof lining and A-pillars in Alcantara for Full leather and Elegante interiors
- Optional stitching for Elegante (Terra Semele or Brown)
- Branding Package
- Suspension lifting system and magneto-rheologic suspension

Also,
Does not have reversing camera.
Does anybody know if a decent aftermarket alternative reversing camera that I can have installed and if so who would fit such an item?

Thanks in advance. 👍

Thanks 70proof,
Helpful information.

I was a bit perplexed over the internal coloir as when I googled it I had 2 results back, I’ve since got to the bottom of it and it seems that it is Nero Helene/terre semelle bi colour with some alcantara. Bit of a mustard colour but something different I suppose.

Yes it has parking sensors.

I’d be keen to get an aftermarket reverse camera if such a thing can be fitted on a huracan.
Is there such thing as a wireless option?

Our car is fitted with a factory standard exhaust system.

A non-factory sports exhaust is available for the 580-2 variant “Accessori Originali Sports Exhaust system” however to our knowledge a factory ‘sports exhaust’ is not an option which was offered for this 4WD model.

In my humble opinion any aftermarket exhaust is not required for this model as the exhaust note is perfect as it is.

Haven't had cause to try any myself but there seems to be a good choice here: https://www.parkingcameras.com/store/

Thanks all,

Will be sure to look at reverse camera options as I’m a bit of a wimp with these things.
Although my Calis reverse camera is ok. The sensors are manic, they scare the hell out of me every time I use the car. Like loud and exciting beeping that is super sensitive.

The dealership are detailing and bringing the car to me tomorrow in a covered transporter. On the basis that if I like it I do the deal and if I don’t then I only lose the delivery cost.
I’m excited as ever, even at the grand old age of 61.
My rationale for this impulsive purchase is that you don’t see too many 70y olds in these type of cars and who knows what’s around the corner.

I’m guessing you can tell I’m justifying this to myself😂

My next thing will be getting a decent outdoor car cover.
I’m lucky enough to have a large driveway and the gates lock automatically so I feel it’s secure but il be wanting to keep it protected from the elements. IMHO the sun is the worse enemy, seems to age a car more than anything.
I have a Halfords one on my Cali and it’s been pretty good so maybe il use this again. Not worried about a snug fit as long as it does the job.

Lots of questions I know but do the lambo batteries last better than the Ferraris, I know the Ferrari ones seem to die really quickly and seem to need to be on a ctek most of the time?

I’ll post some pics up in the newbie section if it all goes through.

That’s lovely spec car. Let’s know how you get on. Seems to have all the bits you need - lift is essential. I am on my second H and both had/have factory reversing cameras. I find I don’t use the camera and just rely on the sensors. I love the slats and they are pretty easy to view out of the rear with. In any case the 610-4 camera has a slightly lower res than the Perf which is a 2018 so not sure when they made the switch

I have no knowledge of Lambos but I had a look at the add and love the colour of the interior! Hope this works out for you tomorrow. Life is for living and you never know when your time is up so if you want it and have the means, bloody well enjoy!

Thanks both,
I’ve been fretting about the colour combo as I have not seen it in the flesh. Having now spoken with others I’m coming to the conclusion it’s a decent colour.
I’ve always been drawn towards tan interiors, my one and only ever brand new car was a Boxster s with black over Luxor beige and I loved it.
I e had an old Porsche 996 which was silver over red.
My current Ferrari Cali (will be going as px against this) is a beautiful Rosso Fiorano over cuio interior and it looks very nice.

Would have loved a spyder but a decent miles and decent spec example was a bit out of reach and perhaps it will be my next move if all goes well with this one.

Sorry, I’m rambling aren’t I……. I’ll get my coat.

Interior colour is really nice. And as a previous poster said, the rear camera picture is not the greatest so not worth worrying over.

I must say I’m feeling very pleased with the positive feedback re the colour. I just felt a bit unsure but I’m sure it will look good in the flesh.
The black is a metallic, again I’d have liked a solid black but my car loves outdoors on the drive mostly under cover but solid black is a beast to clean.

I’d have loved an out there exterior colour but didn’t have the gonads for it. Also I’d probably love it to bits and the tire after a short while.

I’ll follow up with some pics if I seal the deal, which could be in just a few hours.

Is there a place for pics in here or am I in that place already ?

States "sold" now, so assume you went ahead?
Looks lovely by the way, outside colour and internal leather etc.

It’s on its way to me as I type, on the basis that I can drive it and if I don’t want it I can shake hands and no hard feelings.

I’m kind of feeling guilty at such an extravagant spend on a car that I want but don’t need.
I’ve got through so many cars and I’ll miss my Cali V8 but this is a step up from this and hopefully will be the best car I’ve owned.

I’ve had seven Porsches, a Mercedes a purple Audi tt and BMWs and the Cali V8. All of those over several years of course and only one at a time ? but I’ve been yearning for either a 458 or a huracan. I couldn’t find a 458 that seemed such a great deal unless I was prepared to go higher miles and lots of owners, which I know isn’t a big deal for many but this one just took my eye having just two owners 8 main dealer services and only 7.5k miles.

I’m looking out of the window for a covered transporter as I type. (Think big kid excited aged 61)

I know exactly how you're feeling having gone through it myself 3 weeks ago when I collected my 488. I rationalized it in the end by telling myself it would always be worth something and could be sold if the money was ever needed for other reasons.

Congrats anyway and I hope it turns out to be all you hope it to be.
