Opinions vary.Am I the only person who thinks $200k+ for these is completely insane?
Even $150+ plus is pushing it. Is anyone seriously buying these $200k+ examples? I dont think I've seen a single one sell.
I'm not sure how the price is justified aside from "well its rare". At $200k+ I think most people would either be looking at a manual f430 since most consider it a better drivers car, and from what I've read on this forum it seems like a lot of gallardo owners would prefer a manual murcielago, and $200k is right in clean title manual murcielago territory. You also have to consider that they're all LP cars, and I was under the impression people wanted the pre-LP models for the 5.0 engine PLUS you can find a pre-lp for $100k less.
I dont see the market on these matching what has happened with F430s. I say this as someone who has a manual gallardo. Read the comments for gallardos on BAT and you'll see that the lamborghini stereotype isnt entirely off the mark. I would argue that generally, driving enthusiasts gravitate to the f430 and the types who want to be more showy gravitate to the gallardo. I think that will keep values down as collectors will always prefer the f430. There are plenty of us who bought a gallardo for driving and not for seeking attention, but I dont think that is the majority.
