Just curious how difficult it would be to repair body damage on one of these beautiful aluminum and carbon fibre bodys? Has anyone had to do that? How do you feel about driving a very expensive Lambo on the road. I know of one owner who bought a Diablo but would never drive it for fear it would be damaged. He eventually sold the car after 1 1/2 years. Some of the older model Lamo's like the 99 roadsters are irreplacable. Is any of this a concern to you?

IMHO, who cares how hard or how much it costs to fix a Lambo. Driving it is what it is for, and then your protection is insurance for any damage.

That guy who didn't drive it for 18 months is a puss, not condusive to the true ownership experience. Shame on him for tying up a drivers car for those 18 months. :)

Ben: You and I are in florida. Have you heard of any particular shops that specialize in that kind of repair or is Ultimate Motors perhaps the only one? And I agree the car needs to be driven. It was just that this guy I referred to love the car soo much he just could not bear the thought of it being damaged. He said it was truly a work of art and irreplacable. However, if I could not drive it I could not bear to just look at it in a garage forever. thanks,

Work of art is a 1 of 1. Lamborghinis are 1 of 10,000. :) Aah well.

As for shops in the area, I've never had to have this type of work done, so I dont think I'm best qualified to answer that question. I don't think I would want Ultimate in Orlando doing body repairs on my car though, replacing a panel they should be fine with but if there was a repair on an existing I'd probably want a local body shop with the best reputation to resolve that for me.

If it were my car that got damaged, I'd want new panels, not repair of the existing, so I guess that would bring me to Orlando. :)

I don't think its a shame not to drive your Diablo regularly. Sometimes I get a kick out of just looking at mine. When I am ready to buy a different one maybe I will find the very low mileage one that was'nt driven much and someone will get a mint low mileage one from me.
