That stupid Lambo door was interesting back in the 1970's. For today, it is just so so dumb. I saw a Civic with the same doors and it took the guy a good minute to crawl out of the door. His 70 year mom almost tripped crawling out of the passenger side.NetViper said:Doesn't look to easy to get in and out of. I think I would stick with normal doors.

Looking closer, it appears that the drivers door swings more to the side than the passengers door too. The passengers door opens wider because it's travel is used in going upward while the drivers door moves more outward than upward. I'd take it back to whoever did it and have it fixed...

On a side note, I have been told that Lambo will have a new SUV out in the next year or so following the Gallardo spider, and that a 4 seater is slated after that to compete with the likes of the 612 Scag. Lambo wants 5 models (Murci, Gallardo coupe & spider, "LM002", and 612 fighter)...
