I wanted to get some help/feedback on this car: Used 2019 Lamborghini Huracan LP 640-4 Performante Spyder For Sale ($328,900) | Marshall Goldman Beverly Hills Stock #B21252 (marshallgoldmanbh.com)

They have had it for a decent amount of time, whereas most other performante's I see on other dealerships websites go pretty quickly.

This one is well optioned out, and while not my exact favorite blue, its pretty close.

Here is the thing, I looked at Marshall Goldman's feedback on Yelp, and much to my dismay its pretty bad. I think its a 2.5 out of 5. Often times the complaints are misrepresentation and failure to follow up with what they committed (often times related to things needing fix/repair or missing from the car).

Now I'd like to think a 871 miles car wouldnt have any stories, but sadly I have seen 57 miles car have one and not disclosed, only to years later find out when I sold it. I have also seen issues with a prior lamborghini of mine.

Point being, do I bother to chase this car, or just let it go because of the risks associated with 'dealing' with such a dealership?

I understand the obvious answer is 'well go check it out' ... yeah and if I did that on every car I ever considered buying, I'd have spent enough in airfare and hotels and time away from work to buy a second performante ;).

Seriously, I live in NC, and so flying to CA to check out a car thats being held by a less than reputable dealership (per the yelp feedback, not my own), sees it could be a colossal waist of time, and a decent bit of money. If it was in their OHIO store, it would be a non issue, I'd fly up and if misrepresented, fly back. If it was as depicted, I'd pay and drive back home.

Thoughts?

I would buy a new 2021 or order a 2022 EVO and have money left over.

TBH I did exactly that. As much as I love the Performante, for me it was a no brainer to get a very similar car (EVO RWD) - with better seats ( :) ) and full service & warranty - that was brand new.

That said, if you want the real hardcore track-focused machine then the Perf is still the one to go for.

Depreciation is the other consideration of course and it could be the case that the Perf wins out in that regard also, but as I'm planning on keeping mine, maybe forever... then it didn't really factor into my decision making.


OP - an 871 mile car with 2 ( ? ) years remaining warranty ? That doesn't sound too risky a proposition to me...

As you say, it looks like a very nicely specced car - could you not organise a independent Lambo PPI without having to commit to travel etc ?

There are a few members here in that area that might be able to check it out for you. I wouldn’t give up on it just yet since Perf Spyder in the spec you want are hard to come by in the current market.

Also, give these guys a try: Pre-Purchase Car Inspections | Mobile Used Vehicle Mechanics

I’ve not used them personally but heard great things - they take tons of pics and do a full inspection on it. I’m sure there are others out there so I’d definitely use a service like this before buying.

My local dealership has suggested the same thing, however, and no disrepect to EVO owners, it just doesnt have the presence of the performante. Yes, I agree for the most part, a very comparable car, performance wise, but it just doesnt speak to me.... still though it may be my only real option as finding my 'must haves' in a performante is difficult. I may just go drive the evo to see if it does anything for me, i already drove the performante, and I loved it. I'm not tall, at 5'8 there isnt much fight for leg/head room, they seem to build these cars for short people lol. As far as resale, I have never married a car, easily in the last 10 years I have bought over a million dollars with of cars (4 vipers, 6 GTRs, 2 Murcis, 2 Trackhawks, and other cars I hope to forget (zr1)), point being, I get bored, so while I have gotten quite accustom to losing my ass on resale, I may enjoy the less of loss when selling the performante if it continues its trend of holding value.

Its not about warranty, its about 'what if this car was in a wreck' or 'someone modified/tuned this, its warranty is void' There is some utube video of a 600LT mclaren they sold that was held together with zip ties, and it was never disclosed to the new owner. Just stuff that really scares me. I dont have the kind of money that says 'oh well looks like I got screwed here, I'll just sell it and disclose the damage to another buyer and get another' I have to get it right the first time. Also as we all know a PPI can only find for the most part immediately viewable items. I also worry that the local lambo dealership may have a long standing relationship with them, and I may not get an impartial review? Maybe have a local performante owner go look at it first, give me the thumbs up, and then have the PPI done, and then fingers crossed when I get it here take it to my local dealership and get an additional ppi done to hope i didnt get screwed?

I really like this idea, (and I mentioned it in the previous response), does anyone know a performante owner who is on here and also lives in Beverly Hills area? and/or if that person is not immediately available, at least a lambo owner who can at least do an evaluation on the condition of this car overall, at least that would say whether or not I should move forward with a PPI.

I would spend the few hundred bucks and have lemon squad or a similar service who specialize in this to go look at it for you even if a local person can too. They will send you tons of high quality photos and an inspection report. At that point, you can then spend the extra bucks and have lambo do a full inspection (sounds excessive but I am a bit OCD so that’s what I would do when spending $300k+).

I would also look into getting it CPO’d. I did that with my 2019 Perf and it gave me piece of mind since they won’t certify it unless it passed all the inspections and gave me an extra year of factory warranty. It cost me $4k which is a no brainer since it stays with the car and will help with resale should I ever part with the car.

can't comment on the coupe, i only drove spyder performante and evo. I'd choose the evo spyder awd over performante without hesitation. they are same the car with the evo having updated tech and the cool ldvi.

get your favourite color and specs and enjoy it. Most likely you'll keep that new car for a long time considering the upcoming gpf and other things.

Disagree. Both have the same heart but the feel is different IMO with the Perf being more visceral. The Evo is awesome but they are not the same. Also, I think the Perf has more street presence with the ALA.

There's nothing special about the EVO, it's not a limited production car and will continue to depreciate.

The Perf on the other hand is special. It will most likely be the only AWD track variant of the H, it held the ring record and will be the only H with forged carbon and ALA. The Perf spyder is also one of the rarest H's because it was produced for one year. I also prefer the "old" H interior, the touchscreen will look dated in a couple of years and look awful.

I strongly believe Perfs will appreciate in value over time so in my opinion it's a better buy than a new EVO. And remember dealers will always try to sell you new, they make more money and they need to fill quotas.

Huh, did I help in its sale? Lol. The car sat for at least 8 months without a buyer. Congratulations to your buddy, looks like a great example. They had offered it to me for 319k hopefully he did better!
