Input on buying a murci with 50 percent clutch life left? Going easy how many miles before needing to replace?

thank you
It all depends how you drive the car, if you respect the speed limit you have clutch for a lot of miles, if you drive like a maniac probably the day after tomorrow you have to replace it.

What year?

More importantly, why pay 150k+ for a 600+HP Lamborghini to "go easy" ?


Anyways, the clutch wears when it slips so counterintuitively: hitting the gas on the highway causes very little wear while creeping through traffic or around a parking lot can absolutely savage your clutch.

If driven the way the manufacturer intended, meaning at speed, then you'll enjoy tens of thousands of miles. Alternatively, people have burned out a new clutch in a few miles at low speeds.

Here's a video discussing exactly that. It starts with an Aventador clutch burned out at low speed and then gets into instances of burnt Murci clutches:


"It was a brand new [Murci] clutch that I burnt and I mean you're talking 3 miles...."

I'm not following. Clutch degradation is about lots of shifting, not how fast you go?

If you take it easy driving it shouldn't have degradation just the normal but if you put a lot of stress on the clutch there's more degradation. Going to the extreme racing cars parts are being replaced more often than normal cars because they have to support more stress that makes those parts degrade faster. I hope I'm explaining myself.

This is very true. We have seen many brand new clutches chewed up just by driving up to the transport truck. That's why we recommend using a winch to pull into the truck.

More to the point, clutch wear is from relative motion between friction material and the metal disks/flywheel.

Most people do not powershift their Lambos, because most people don't even know what powershifting is, let alone how to do it.
