Cant quite contain my excitement - I have wanted a Merci since they where launched when I was an impressionable young petrol head

I have never been in a position to get into one, never had the budget - 3 years ago when I bought my V12 Vantage I saw their prices climb to levels I was sure I was priced out of the V12 Lamborghini

Fast forward 3 years and I have secured a 2003 Car in Giallo Orion from my good friends and customers over at Simon Furlonger Specialist Cars

I still cant quite believe I have managed to get to my goal of a manual v12 Lamborghini

Got a few weeks to wait now for the car to be prep'ed, new tyres etc - Its going to be a slow few week lol

How is it going to take “a few weeks” to prep!?

Service, Tyres etc - Items are not always super quick to get in to stock and their workshops backed up this week. A few of the buttons in the car have gone "sticky" so they are going to be refinished etc

I want the wheels refurbished to silver, as I dont like them in black too!

I am in no rush so happy to wait for the little bits to be done

Any ideas when you're likely to be able to collect this beast? The wait must be unbearable!
