Being rich isn’t something you just dabble in.

If you have to take out a second mortgage on your home to buy a Lamborghini then you’re not rich enough to buy a Lamborghini.

Maybe he can just use some Retr0bright on it? It works great on a yellowing SNES.

In all seriousness I wonder if there’s some kind aftermarket plastic protective coating on the paint that’s yellowing.

He bought it on credit. He is just a fool.

Also…

Yeah. I am sure that was how he spun this to his spouse. “It is not for me it is for little Billy!”.

Probably didn’t even consider the astronomical maintenance costs. Cars like these are not meant to be grocery getters and need frequent maintenance. Those costs can easily go into 5 figures. Replacement tires alone can run $4000 for a set after labor costs.

My dad used to say, “when you get a special car you need a special mechanic that charges special prices”.

Maybe it’s a mood Lamborghini, and he has justifiably gone from “bored” to “unsettled”?

Even my “sort of special” mechanic for my “barely special” 1978 Porsche doesn’t get out of bed for less than a grand it seems. BTW it’s (grand prix) white and has never turned a bit of yellow over the 20 years I’ve owned it…

Why would anybody buy a white Lamborghini anyways?

Chinese buyers prefer white vehicles because the color symbolises brightness, purity, and fulfilment in their culture. There are lots of white luxury vehicles driving around Vancouver.

Wait… if the car in the picture is the same as the article… dude took out a second mortgage for a car who’s doors don’t even open upwards? This father and son could restore a DeLorean, learn a lot from the process, have gullwing doors, and do it all under 30k USD. Fail.

Repainting the car would decrease it’s value? Perhaps they weren’t trying hard enough.
