I live in the most south part of The Netherlands near the German and Belgium border, so easily I can go to the Ardennes or Eifel the driving walhalla.

I have became a member because I was looking for a sports car and the Gallardo was in my reach and like the styling. The design is so different from other cars as for instance a Ferrari... it is different!

Read a lot about pre-LP and LP G’s but some how the pre-lp looked for me better and was within my budget, could go for a LP but that would killed my bank account too much for my emotion and you have to set a limit. Because it is not only the purchase but also maintenance and if something happens you should be in the possibility to cover it.

So went to see some G’s, some in good/average condition and one in a very bad condition looked like a bull went through it and over it….

Than I saw a nice Balloon White G SE version e-Gear, looked stunning on the photo’s but it wasn’t near my home so I had to plan to see it. When I arrived It ticked almost all bells, it was very well maintained and the accents on a SE are really nice. The advantage of a SE it has some upgrades relative to the 04-05 models, more HP and different gearing of the transmission better for the clutch for instance. Color wise it wasn’t what I expected, looked nice on the photo’s but in reality I had my doubts, but hey it is a Lamborghini….

After some negotiation, we are Dutch so it took some time and I am tight so it took a very long time :) The price was set to a level that the color “problem” became a non-issue. A PPI was a must for me, I have however well knowledge about cars but a Lamborghini is something else so it went to specialist who did the PPI, all was ok and the specialist said it is solid car and well maintained - so bought it including a major service. After 10 days of looooonnnggg waiting and sleepless nights it was the day to get the car, travelled by train to pick it up. At arrival there it stood, beauty and I gave her the name Monica! And here she is……..

"Monica" Lamborghini Gallardo SE number 1 of 250.
