    Seriously, you don't have an inkling to what you want? You're either a salesperson' dream or their worst nightmare lol.

    Problem is he doesn't have room for all of them
    an easy fix is get a mate to drive in front of you at 60 then 80 then 100 and mark in on your speedo with some liquid paper.

    Itd be the fez easy. But what I want is all three lol. I think realistically itll be either a 458/488 or a huracan.

    Gt3rs is super good but its not got the same WEOW LOOK AT MEEEEEE as the other italians.

    Car shows of various sorts had a Testarossa every now & again, they were a Big Thing; but they were never registered, they were owned by someone who wanted to own one & drive it on a track every now and again.

    The fact that they couldn't be registered when they were new is why people are often surprised they can be now.

    Dunno about you, but if it was my money (not that I have that much), I'd go something that is a few years old and rare and manual. I don't like depreciation, though I'm not smart enough to avoid it myself with my stupid spending over the years! Not mentioned yet, but for mine would be the Gallardo Balboni special. 2WD and manual. That sort of thing appeals to me, and it must do to others. Dunno if available or what the price of one is.

    360 fezza too slow for mine. Sounds great, but seen too many get hosed on track. 430 would be it, last of the manuals plus look nicer. Though a 455 appeals to me, been on track with one, but can't remember too much - think I was busy driving my car and couldn't hear a thing in any case... Maybe I'm getting too old, but the sound of a car is becoming more important to me that actual outright performance, within reason. Hence the 458 over the 488. Both are fast, and you get to enjoy the sound of a 458 a little longer in each gear, yet still be belting along.

    Couldn't go an old Lambo. Looking over a Diablo at a show the other week - more of a 'kit car' than mine almost! Interior and dashboard was very sad place. Still, was funny following it down the main drag to Freo and watching people flip out over it as it went through the traffic! You're right, a Porsche just don't have that effect, much as they may be a great track toy.

    Anyway, enough dreaming from me, I'll let the adults with the real (not monopoly) money make the decisions!

    I'm curious as to how the sales process on a second handy works. I imagine going and bouncing on each corner, enthusiastically rowing through the gearshift, looking at the engine bay making hmm noises doesn't just quite cut it.

    Sure, you could just wood duck it and hand over the cash if you are true baller, but there must be some special considerations in this sort of purchase? I can't imagine CTS being cool with you driving a few different cars and then tossing the old "I'll think about it" line.

    Tony - the dealer I spoke to was very nice actually. I rocked up in the clapped out range rover and in what could pass as home clothes. lol he showed me the cars and even went to the other garage they've got just before closing to get the huracan. Let me have a go in it and the 488.

    Before I left there were some kids walking on the sidewalk with a camera and they stopped to look at the huracan outside. He unlocked it and let them sit inside and all that. When I left and was driving up the street he let them into the showroom (this was about 10 mins after their closing time) and let them take pics of the SV and all the other cars.

    but then that doesnt have much to do with buying lol

    If I had $600k laying about, I'd find another $98k behind the sofa cushions and buy me a Cuntash.

    Couple of things, there's nothing to say they couldn't be registered here other than the fact none were officially imported. Secondly, there weren't many RHD ones built, claimed 438 RHD built. And finally, those who could afford one here, wouldn't have used it as a daily and probably had access to a trade plate or permit to use it once or twice a year.

    All that aside, there are 8 on carsales and all are under $400k

    They don't have much of a rep though, do they? They're firmly in the "never drive your heroes" zone aren't they?

    That gels with what I've read; it's all about the engine, feel & sound & even appearance. Everything else in the car is shit, steering & braking & electronics & build-quality & handling; they were still going with the Enzo thing of the car being a way of moving the engine around.

    One of them LHD that he does the occasional sprint in down in Victoria?

    Flat 12 is good, but mounting it above the gearbag is a bit too special.
