Some folks out there simply refuse to buy a new automobile off the showroom floor. They cannot bring themselves to fork over the funds for an item that depreciates in value so quickly after pulling away from the dealer's lot. The world of certified used cars arose for these frugal minded individuals. Certified used cars offer sufficient warranty coverage, enough miles on the odometers to assure that they are not lemons and little to none of the instant investment nose dive. Now Lamborghini is joining the ranks of manufacturers offering pre-owned vehicles through its dealership network so wealthy super tight wads can feel a little bit better about splurging for a Lambo. This will also make it easier for those who have to be seen in the latest and greatest to trade up from old to new models.

The program begins in July and extends to all Gallardo and Murcielago models through a network of 31 authorized dealers. To be certified, however, the vehicle must meet a list of criteria. The car must have seen less than 22,000 miles with all maintenance fully documented. It also must pass a 150-point inspection performed by the dealer. Any non-OEM equipment (wings, stereos, Gumball 3000 decals) will not be accepted as they do not meet the required standards.

      Yeah this is gonna be like buying a used SRT-4, Evo, or STi.

      All beat to piss no matter what the warranty.

      "Adult driven" my ass!

        Gallardos are famous among owners for their clutch problems. However, when driven hard constantly and daily, the Gallardo holds up well and rarely requires clutch replacement in consistent intervals of miles. (Some owners report having to replace the clutch every 15,000 miles!)

        In this case, the harder the car is driven, the nicer it comes out for the second hand owner.

        This is highly unlike something like an STi or Evo which were designed to be daily drivers that happen to look and go fast.

      I wonder if Jeremy Clarkson's old Gallardo Spyder will make it to the certified lot.

      this just proves the ability to buy does nto grant the ability to drive, buyer beware.

      This is just sad. The fact that Lambo is doing it leads to Ferrari and others doing it. Then its backs the fact that these hand built works of art are now nothing more then cars today. As kids we knew to care for these works of art, to keep them fine tuned, clean, cared for more so then any woman on earth. Now we gotta get the dealers approval that they were not abused by some drunk NASCAR fan. Well one thing I have always said and this backs, "the ability to buy does not grant the ability to drive"

      'Bout time. I usually buy my Lamborghinis at one of the used car lots down the street, but you never know what you're going to get. This is really a big problem for a lot of people.
