I love the fact that the Lambo masks are orange and have the Lambo logo stitched on, very cool. They will be on ebay soon for a ridiculous price no doubt.

That's quite poignant, several industries chipping in where they can how they can. It's very heartening. Yes they have logoed golf shirts on which is no accident but I think it's just pride at helping. Unlike Mike Ashley or that bizarre pub baron.

That country gets hammered and hammered again and again but their compassion is undefeatable.
It’s so easy to take a pop at mike Ashley and Tim Wetherspoon but just for a moment
think about the amount of vat,rates,Paye ,corporation tax etc they pay.
In my humble opinion unless your paying more,you don’t really have a right to moan unless out of jealousy .

I think the Weatherspoon's guy's comments were taken out of context. As for Ashley ... Thousands of decent owners of businesses large and small have my sympathies in these awful times but Ashley's not one of them.

I think it’s crass that they are branding them to be honest....

I can see your argument. I think Italians may view it differently though.

Perhaps the recipients will see it as a great reminder that Italian companies are working hard in hugely difficult times to provide the necessary goods and services. It keeps the factories open, people in work, people safer. They should be applauded, just like Dyson, Mercedes F1 etc here in the UK.

Great that Lamborghini and a multitude of other companies are getting involved .

When you have a patient sitting a mere 8 inches in front of you , you really are not bothered if the mask is branded or not , and you don't really care if the company is using it as a marketing exercise or not .

You are just grateful that someone has taken the time , trouble and care to provide you , the patient , and society at large , with an additional layer (literally) of protection .

I don't think the Lambo logo is required for ridiculous mask prices on Ebay smile

I found half a box of FP2 and FP3s I bought last year when ripping out some lathe and plaster. The care home don't want them as the pack is open.

Blog post from Secret Supercar Owner formerly of EVO fame on the current market and outlook. Some will disagree but I think it’s really well written and makes some very valid points. As he has previously highlighted the key thing is the market was soft before we’d heard of Covid....and in times like this you would expect a grand to accelerate.

Anyone who thinks prices will do anything other than tank over the next 12 months is deluded.

It's going to be worse than 2009 in my opinion.

I made an offer on a F50 last week that the dealer turned down - I reckon in 12 months he will be wishing he bit my hand off.

I think the best thing for anyone looking to buy is just sit tight and watch everything crumble around us first.

I guess the big question would be does the dealer have their own capital tied up in the F50 or is just brokering the sale which is far more likely.

Does anyone have anything on order that was supposed to be arriving over the summer? I do but am wondering if I might be better trying to get out of it. The car in question has always been trading overs until about a month before this crisis. Does anyone know if it is possible to get out of it at this point and buy used?

So presumably you were just buying the car to turn a profit or for free motoring.

No, I was buying it to use. But if I can get a second hand one now, or in a few months, for a substantially lower price I’d be silly not to.

Afters on a Urus seems like a fantasy going forward

Your loss on a cancelled order might depend on size of your deposit and what the dealer manages to get for the car

I'd be inclined if you want one to negotiate hard on the new car since you are probably buying close to list and the dealer might prefer to lose some margin to losing a sale - if they don't want to help its probably because they think they can dump it easily
