Looking back on my first exotic car: Giallo Midas 2004 Lamborghini Gallardo
In 2006, when I was just 20 years old, I got a long term loan for my first exotic car. This was in the lending era that precipitated the recession of 2007-2010 and that meant that loans for ridiculous assets were much easier to come by than they are now. My rules of exotic car financing were not in effect yet! I had some money left from selling my 2000 Audi S4 that I drove NY to LA in the 2004 rally on MTV. I bought a 2004 Lamborghini Gallardo.
Here are some photos that we took of the car around some of my favorite spots in Atlanta.
The experiences that I had with that car helped me build some advice for others preparing to purchase their first exotic car and a comprehensive buyers guide for those looking specifically for a Gallardo.
After I exited the rental company, I sold the car on consignment at Motorcars of Georgia. It popped up a few months later for sale with over 51k miles in Texas.
From there it was exported to Hong Kong. I have not been able to get any information on it since.
