Max-Miles Murci: We Drive a 250,000-Mile Lamborghini!

If you’re someone who likes to learn about super fancy cars, and even experience second-hand their glory, then this is the article for you. You’re taken on a trip to London, where you learn about a unique Lamborghini Murcielago, but it’s not usual car. Despite it’s breathtaking aesthetics, you are then aware of it’s stunning history. It’s been in a devastating accident, repaired numerous times, and even been driven 250k miles but it’s still kicking!

Key Takeaways:

  • The very cars that are designed exclusively for the pleasure of driving tend to be the ones that get driven the least, instead being locked away in climate-controlled garages lest an excess of miles reduce their value.
  • The easiest way to monetize his exotic asset was by renting it to a supercar-experience company, with George serving as instructor and sitting beside paying guests as they whaled on his pride and joy on British racetracks.
  • The biggest single expense is fuel: Because the car averages 10 mpg overall including track use, the cost translates to about $162,000. Crash repairs cost around $115,000, 84 sets of tires have cost $97,400, servicing and engine rebuilds have cost an estimated $64,000, insurance has cost more than $19,000, and everything else, including British road taxes, adds about another $25,000. That’s a total of £498,000, or nearly $640,000.

“Supercar owners tend to heed the adage of Indiana Jones when it comes to their precious exotics: “It’s not the years, honey—it’s the mileage.””
