Fantastic to see an LP400 and a Miura P400 side by side.

Enjoying the photos snapperseven and especially the LP400 and Miura as you are right, its not often you see them together and it makes for an interesting comparison. Did cringe with the mirrors though ( later vitalonis i think and much more practical, as the originals are near useless but nicer) and the speaker grills, but that was what you did back then and thought it was cool, he says remembering his Escorts with massive speakers and silly equaliser. Thanks.

cc8s - yes I am pretty sure it is and I think I have photos of the car. I'll see if I can dig them out along with Dave Hedgehog if he has any., Would be good to see.

Thanks SS - if you can dig them out then that would be a treat: there are only a handful of pictures of that car on the internet! thumbup I'm looking forward to seeing what you dig out.

I've owned my 5000s for nearly 25 years now and they really aren't.

Here you go cc8s. This is from 1992 so hopefully the one you meant.

It's funny to think that, whilst it was built by one of the greatest F1 team and designed by one of the finest engineering minds we have ever seen, back then it just seemed like another super/hypercar. Interesting to see how it has grown to become so iconic.

...and now for something completely (for completely, read 'not entirely') different.

I have found some snaps from a couple of trips to Portman Lamborghini showroom in Portman Square, London. Also a few from one of the motor shows, I am guessing 1990. Note the Zinc Miura again in the corner on the last photo.

I've still got the Anniversary Countach sales brochure that I collected from the stand.

Just to say I probably won't post for a few days just to ensure my wife remembers who she is married to! Don't worry though, plenty more to come from Goodwood and I haven't even started my snaps from Castle Combe yet. This may take a little while.

Superb shots, Mr Seven!! thumbup It must have been the 1993 show in this case as this is a prototype and the car I refer to was brown. But thank you so much for these - very, very cool to see.

A few more from Goodwood. This was a De Tomaso club day back in June 1992

The car below is now owned by a friend of Harry Metcalfe and thankfully has now had the side skirt removed so the car is back to the 'round belly' look.

8789SF

Steve Forster owned the red QV pictured, which has a dark blue interior. When he sold it, it was C323BYU on the cover of a car mag with a white Miura SV, and then Vic Sawyer bought it and it became VFS141 then when he sold it, it became C416NGH as it is today.

Steve Forster then put his plate 8789SF onto a new white Anniversary, which he owned when he sold the QV.

Superb photos, thank you guys

Good to hear from you on this thread Robert!
Well, well, whilst I clocked the colour coded wing mirrors I never realised they were the same car.

I also believe that Steve's white anniversary is the one that was on the motor show stand on my previous Portman photos. It has the same bright blue interior with the white piping.

cheers

I scanned quite a few more pics of the QV when Vic had it. Will post up sometime soon.

Hi, sorry, I completely missed this thread somehow. I'll check on the Anniversary when I have the right info to hand. There were several white and pearl Annivs and I did figure out which is which.

Three RHD white anniversarys delivered to the UK all in 1989, so I reckon your photos are Motorshow 1989. Steve Forsters car was the last of the 3, delivered in Nov 1989. One of the first two had a blue interior piped white , somI reckon the Motorahow car is not Steve Forsters. As with all things Lambo historical, this is a best guess!
