This car's performance is amazing. While driving this car, its engine makes a banshee wail so loud it would probably trigger car alarms in the next county. Driving it without ear protection or a helmet soon affects your ability to hear. This car shoots off during acceleration and brakes better than a Lexus with Brembo brakes during heavy braking. The grip is unmatched and the automated transmittion shifts beautifully, although it can be slow during the first few days of use. The downside to this car is the great paucity of anything luxury. Sure the custom seats are great, the leather is nice, and the nav is not quite dilapidated yet; but overall, this car lacks what many other competing brands have begun to offer. Another con is the hugely exorbitant price tag; a hefty $480,000+. This doesn't even include huge maintainence costs and the price to keep gas in the car....read morehide

- appearance, cornering
- brake fade from 130mph - 0, 1st gear too high
Overall not bad, I like it more than my Countach from way back , but not near as fun to drive as my newer Ruf RT12.
I recommend this over the Ferrari's no questions, reliability is much higher than the 430 or 360. Don't have a Maserati to compare to - maybe that's next.
For now I am happy with the Ruf over my italians....read morehide

- No trim specified for this review
- very fast...gas saver, nice stereo system
- not enough body room, door malfunction, breaks, suspensions
This car is fast and the and the appearance is great!!! However, I weigh 483 pounds and the seating is very unpleasant/uncomfortable. The passenger door tends to fly open at high speeds. The breaks grind in 1st & 2nd gear. I installed drum breaks to solve the problem, but the problem became noticeably worse and louder, so I completely removed the breaks and drive without the rear breaks. The suspension is horrible and sounds like it touches the top of the tires when I go over bumps...read morehide

- One of the finest cars I have owned and driven
- car is stiff, sometimes too quick responding....this is not a novice auto and I not a toy!
Fortunately, one was ordered for a customer who defaulted on the deal and while it was in the 6 figures, a significant savings over an original was possible. Not entirely pleased with the mustard yellow, this vehicle burns FIRE!!!! No dancing around this baby! Eats corvettes like cotton candy and is built for roads not available in the USA. Having driven for nearly 45 years, it was necessary that a speed and handling course be attended (my own idea) after the test drive in a prior model. If you enjoy "over-engineering", this is the baby you should consider. Not sure about a long trip even though the interior is much more roomy than you would expect with this much power, engine, etc. This vehicle can and will draw the ire of law enforcement at the blink of an eye and while there is no US made pursuit vehicle capable of keeping up, it is a joy to drive and a curve if you break the law in this baby. Requires maturity, a working brain, sensitive hands for the feel of the road and the ability to do more than one thing at a time. The fastest I have had this bird is around 225, on flat, dry, hard surface. At those speeds this baby "squats" and the retacting spoiler extended above about 73 mph. Tachometer is a valuable tool BUT your ears and hands need to adjust to the rps's, sounds of the highway and the ability to hold back an ear to ear grin! Don't drive it unless you plan on purchasing one because you will die disappointed at anything else....read morehide

- No trim specified for this review
- Fantastic Performance, Breathtaking acceleration, very easy to drive, fantastic engine note.
- very very very thirsty, very expensive to run.
I have owned my LP640 for three months now. so far i have found it fantastic. it's not a car to be used every day, only comes out when the sunshines. this car is a real beast and must be driven properly otherwise you could find yourself in some trouble.
The engine is fantastic, massive torque from low revs, and will pull just as stong untill the rev limiter kicks in.
A highly recomended car. but also a very expensive one, make sure you have deep pockets before you buy. it's not purchasing the car it's running it.
i highly recomended car, you'll struggle to find a car which gives you more of a rush than this one.
AVOID SPEED BUBMPS at all cost, the car does not appriciate them one bit....read morehide
