What a dweeb. Crashing it on the same day that he got it. Now he plans to sell it to pay off bills and such. I have to say, I don't think the market is great for almost new lamborghinis that have been thrashed and crashed...

How can it be the middle of winter if we're still in fall?

You tell me:

If its snowing in the southwest how can it not be winter

Just saying, a Lambo likely with summer tires, in the hands of a newb, doesnt belong on the road in December.

Thanks doug. I got it. The shortest day of the year is tomorrow. I was speaking in more of a meteorological sense but way to think inside the box.

That's why you never give away a Lambo in a convenience store contest. Maybe a Ferrari or a Bugatti, but never a Lambo.

Yeah it was called "from joe schmo to lambo". They forgot to add "and back again".

There is no way a joe schmo could afford the insurance on a lambo, let along the maintenence. He probably wont get anywhere near the 380,000 its worth and he will probably blow the money he does get on some other crap he doesnt need and he will be back shopping there next week.

Id like to see him show up to said convinience store in the lambo and get car jacked.

It was AWD too. He needs something safer than a Civic.

As jagg would say: Volvo ftw.

Guess they should have thrown in this: http://www.lamborghini.com/en/events...ghini-academy/

Let's just say the Lambo. handles just a little different than the Frito Lay truck he's used to driving and leave it at that.

Punctured oil pan too. (I'm guessing that's a dry-sump motor...so, while that's still a problem, it may not be that much of a problem).
