Only way I would get that car is if it was priced to good to be true like 50k . By the time you pay for the repairs you gonna be pretty close to wholesale value on a clean title car. I think 69k is to high for that.

Yep, that's the car.

CA license plate "TOP LOVR"

probably didn't have "TOPL OVR" in mind when getting that plate, though

Since it ended up with a salvage title, damage probably wasn't just minor...

^absolutely. 69K is ridiculous for a branded title.
$50K and you may break even whenever it is resold. A member here has been trying to sell his Diablo SV for an eternity on a salvage title for $50K and it will not sell.

Yeah I remember that guy selling that car. Wonder if he ever sold that thing.

+1. The price including the cost of repairs should be at least a good 20% below market rate in order to justify the resale loss on the salvage title. 70k is way too high.

Really, salvage title will about half the price of a car. At best really.

You say you are in the car business and deal with salvage cars everyday. And a lamborghini with a salvage title is not quite like a regular car.

It is even more of a pariah.

You should see the number of posts that say "want to buy 04-05 Gallardo, 'cause I'm scared Lamborghini ownership is gonna suck....yada yada yada...."

If you buy this car, you will be stuck with it. You can't even open the hood to check the oil? Or the coolant?

If that is ok with you, then great!! That is what counts.

If you decide to part with it, it will likely be VERY difficult to sell it. Most people that buy supercars don't have to settle for cars with salvage titles. Even used supercars.

Ravill,

I enjoy your posts. Mostly because your avatar is smoking hot, but other reasons too

Yeah you are gonna be stuck with that car for sure. Almost 10 years old and salvage .bad combo. I don't even think a bank will finance a salvage car anymore ? Not sure but I thought they stopped that
