It was a beautiful day in Atlanta so I went out with a friend to snap a few pics of the Ruf and the Murcielago. Contact Evan @atl.cars on IG if you would like some similar shots taken of your car! First, the 2006 Ruf RT12S: And the manual 2007 Lamborghini Murcielago LP640 in Grigio […]
I replaced my unicorn car – the manual LP640 – with the only thing that made sense… Another one. I know there is some sentiment that the manual cars are over-hyped but I continue to beg to differ. The Murcielago in any form is the best supercar bargain out there but the sequential cars generally […]
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.
Recently I have talked a lot about the rarity of manual cars. They certainly have become conspicuous in their absence from the market place and in their increasing popularity among enthusiast circles. I had a great conversation recently with a car collector about why that was. He posited that at some point, manufacturers would notice the […]
After seeing the lists that I had put together of Manual Lamborghini Murcielago LP640’s in the US, Manual Transmission LP generation Gallardso in the US, and LP670-4 SuperVeloces in the US, a frequent reader of my site sent me an email. He had been shopping for a first generation manual transmission Murcielago and had made a […]
Over the weekend, a couple of my friends took their manual LP640s out to an air strip drag racing event called Shift Sector. Check out this incredible gallery of photos by Panella photography. You will see the first manual LP640 imported into the US, an 07 Telesto coupe. There is also a Rosso Andromeda coupe […]
One of the two 2007 US LP640 coupes in Balloon White has popped up for sale. This one is VIN ZHWBU37M17LA02334. I sold the other one, which had earlier been owned by Nick Cage, in 2011. That same car sold last year for around $330k with 3k more miles. This car is gorgeous, has just […]
I have written a lot lately on the vanishing manual gearboxes in supercars, particularly in Lamborghinis. The past 15 years have shown us that when you offer an advanced automated transmission as an alternative to a manual gearbox, a vast majority of buyers will purchase their cars with it. The problem with technological components is […]
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 […]
I sold this car this week. It is a gorgeous spec in Nero Aldebaran with a full Grigio Phoenix interior. This car has the ultra-rare Titanium Fiber interior as well. We know that manual transmission LP640s are rare but roadsters are even more unobtainable. This is likely the lowest mile one in the country and it […]
