Click above for a high-res gallery of the Lamborghini Gallardo LP560-4.

Lamborghini is in the process of developing its own certified pre-owned program that should launch by the end of the year. According to Stephan Winkelmann, CEO of Lamborghini, the program will be rolled out worldwide, beginning with dealers in the U.S. and Europe. Details about how a used Lambo will be inspected or certified haven't been released yet, but sales will only be allowed through authorized Lamborghini dealers. Ferrari has been dealing in certified pre-owned vehicles since 2003, and just announced a program that would include a 190-point certification process of seven models going all the way back to 1998.

      Like used Lambos really need to be certified.
        • 6 Years Ago
        Actually I think they do.

        I know how I would be driving a new Lambo (like I stole it) so were I to consider a used one, you bet your bottom I'd want a Lambo specialist to give it a clean bill of health if the original owner drove it anything like i would.

        Well when you consider that the car has a $500 oil change, I would like to have mine (were I of the economic class) to be fully inspected, so that I would not have to whimper in two weeks later, after realizing that the previous owner of my new bull did some Bam Margera stunts, and now I have to spend twice the price I paid to get the thing fixed.

        Here is the Bam link... If you dont get the reference.

        I don't think they ever have a clean bill of health again after they turn 1 week old.

      You'd need to be certified (or rather, certifiable) to buy a used Italian exotic.

      If you can afford a used one but not a new one, you can't afford a used one. Pick up an NSX or Corvette instead.

        "If you can afford a used one but not a new one, you can't afford a used one. Pick up an NSX or Corvette instead."

        i may never have heard it more correctly put as far as exotics go. that is a great statement.

        however, i think one of the reasons that many people buy used exotics is so that they simply can get one! by that, i mean that often, unless you have already owned a lambo or ferrari, you can't even buy a new one. they either make you wait on a waiting list for 2 or 3 years or they simply refuse to sell to you period. buying used lambos or ferraris lets people get into the circle of owners without having to wait on a list for years. once they're in, they can then buy new ones more easily...

        the only reason i know this is because one of my friends recently sold a business he had started and made millions. first thing he did was go to the lambo dealership. they told him the wait for a murci was on the order of 30-36 months, but he could buy a used 2005 one (this was in 2007) with 9,000 miles on it for about the same price as a new one. he jumped all over it and hasnt looked back since....

      not strictly on-topic, but those wheels are gorgeous.

      The close up shows that they actually are cast with voids even close to the bolt circle, which most cast or forged spoke-look wheels don't have.

      Shouldn't be a hard program for Lamborghini, now with Audi as it's parent. Audi has a very successful certified pre-owned program (I own one and have had no problems whatsoever with the car). Besides, I agree with Mike, a lot of people drive these cars like they are in a video game and most likely do not properly break the cars in. So, I would also want to know that the car hasn't been beat so bad that 1000 miles down the line I wouldn't be facing a massive service bill with no warranty.

      Yay! Now in addition to the regular narcissistic overly rich a**holes being able to afford these overpriced pigs, we can have narcissistic slightly-less rich a**holes buying these used overpriced pigs! Yay! Yay for cars!

        Isn't capitalism wonderful?

      i wonder how much you have to pay to get the dealer to take it back? I knew one guy who called his 'Red Chief' after the O'Henry story "Ransom of Red Chief".

      Will any of them have more than a couple hundred miles?
        • 6 Years Ago
        I've seen a Murcielago at a local event with close to 10K miles on the clock.
