2003 Lamborghini Murcielago from UK and Ireland
Hardly a bargain, in fact a long way from it, but owners are aware of this at the point of purchase
Nothing major has gone wrong with this car - but to be honest I am probably not going to drive a high enough mileage in it for anything major to develop.
The rear spoiler remained in the up position in the first week, but this was very quickly fixed by the dealer.
As they say here in the UK - it does what it says on the tin!
There is no question that the Murcielago is quick and that it handles superbly. However, I am slightly worried that the clutch is fragile as it feels too light for nearly 600bhp. Therefore it becomes easy to stall as you tend to creep forward on engine revs only letting the clutch out without using any gas in an effort to save the clutch!
It would take a complete fool to lose control of this car as it sticks to the road like a barnacle!
The major drawback of ownership in Europe is the width of the car, you have to seriously think about where exactly you are going to drive it as it would be very easy to get it stuck in some medieval town or country road. Certainly meeting traffic coming towards you on narrow roads is heart-stopping.
It is essentially like owning a piece of art - it looks absolutely stunning from any angle and drives with passion. Many high performance cars separate the driver from the engine and you don't really feel you're driving something special unless you check the speedo - the Lamborghini is an event to drive at any speed.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Don't Know

There are seven (7) reviews on Murcielago's already. The odds are that most if not ALL of these are fake. This review at least sounds semi plausible though it gives little detail which can confirm ownership.
How do we separate the wheat from the Chaff? At least if it sounds fake, you know that you can disregard it.
Please don't post fake reviews unless it is witty and obvious.
