I sold our 2008 Land Rover Range Rover – Some ownership thoughts

I have owned several Land Rovers over the last 15 years and I have loved each one of them in spite of their unending flaws. My first car was a 1995 Discovery that developed a tractor like knock and had engine failure around 180k miles. I had a 2003 Discovery for a few years that […]

Updated List of Ed’s Car History

It has been a while since I made a list of the cars that I have owned. Here is an updated list. I like to keep this current so that if the cars sell to someone new they can contact me. Great to see how far they travel. 2007 Lamborghini LP640 Coupe – Grigio Telesto/Nero […]

Photos of the Green LP640 around Atlanta by Larry from Winning Automotive

A couple weeks ago, Larry from Winning Automotive and I went out with David Patterson (“thatdudeinblue” on YouTube) as well as Peter and Dan from the VINwiki team. Larry got some amazing shots rolling down 85, on top of the Georgia Tech Hotel Parking Deck, near the Georgia Dome, and around Atlantic Station. Here they are.

United States Ruf RT12 and RT12S Registry

I finally got around to doing some research to see how rare the Ruf RT12’s are in the US. I have been enjoying mine since picking it up in January but I did some browsing around the internet and social media and these are the ones that I have found. W09BD03866PR06060 – 2006 RT12S W09BD038X6PR06062 […]

Looking back at the Orange LP640 Roadster

This was a car that I lusted after for years before finally having the chance to purchase it. Back in June of 2012, those dreams materialized in the form of a 2008 Lamborghini Murcielago LP640 Roadster in Arancio Atlas. It was a perfect specification – Nero Perseus interior, orange Q-citura stitching, carbon fiber interior/wind deflector/engine […]

The only manual Verde Ithaca LP640 Roadster in the US

Of the 26 US manual LP640’s, my current car is the only green manual coupe but there is a green manual roadster that made its way here. It was in Atlanta for a while in 2011-2012 but it went away to California. I sold the car again earlier this year (2015) with approximately 4k miles and […]

My 10 Favorite Photos of the Murcielagos that I have owned

The Murcielago is my favorite car. I have owned three of them. The first was an Arancio Atlas 2008 Roadster. The second was a Rosso Vik 2007 Coupe. Now I have a Verde Ithaca 6 Speed Manual 2008 LP640 Coupe. Over the years we have done a lot of photo shoots with them. Here are […]

The 3 LP640’s – Verde Ithaca, Arancio Atlas, and Rosso Vik

On Saturday, just after my new Verde Ithaca LP640 coupe had arrived, I had a few minutes before the truck came to take away my Rosso Vik car. The Arancio Atlas Roadster that I owned from 2012-2014 came in for service and consignment this week so we pulled it out for some quick pictures. Thanks […]

Ed’s Car History: 6 Speed Manual Verde Ithaca 2008 LP640

I have chased a stick LP640 for nearly eight years now. I fell in love with the idea of a green stick Murci with this Verde Draco manual press car as Jeremy Clarkson drove it on Top Gear, extolling the virtues of a proper gearbox. I tried to buy a barely used Orange one in 2007 […]

How rare are manual transmission LP640s and LP670s in the United States?

I recently sold a 2008 Lamborghini Murcielago LP640 with the increasingly desirable manual transmission. We all know that the later Murci’s with a stick are rare but I was curious just how rare. Here is a list of the US cars, best I can tell. I have counted 26 cars. 9 of them were exported, […]
