Buying a Lamborghini Gallardo - My Documentary
I'll make another video answering questions soon, but here are my answers to some of the common questions I'm getting since posting this video: Q: What do you do for work? A: I own a marketing agency and I help small business owners market their businesses online. I also create & sell software targeted at this same niche. It's a long story on how I got to this so will explain in more detail soon if anyone is curious. Q: Are you hauling a truck down the road in the beginning of the video? A: Yes, it's my old plow truck. Q: Have you done any mods to the car yet? A: Not yet. I literally just got the car last week and uploaded this video a couple days later. I was also in the process of moving into a new place at the same time I bought this car so have been really busy unpacking and buying new furniture for the new place. lol Q: Is the Cobra your daily driver? A: My daily driver is my 2011 Chevy Duramax and my former weekend fun car was the Cobra. I still have the truck (Maine remember?), and now I have 2 weekend fun cars. Q: Were you saving to buy the car for 10 years? A: Man, some of these questions crack me up. No, about 10 years ago I decided I wanted a Gallardo but obviously couldn't afford it. A few years later I started my business. After about 5 yrs of growing my business I'm in a good position financially to justify buying the car. I only believe you should buy something as extravagant as a Lambo only if you can afford it without breaking a sweat and have at least 1 year's worth of living expenses in the bank. I would never put myself in financial stress to buy a car, and neither should you :) Q: Why an 04 Gallardo? A: Obviously I wanted a Gallardo but why an 04? Well for starters, the 04 is the cheapest year. This allowed me to get the car for less than $100k, compared to paying $30-$60k plus for a newer one. I wanted to step into the world of exotic car ownership with the lowest investment as possible to decide if I even liked the car to begin with. I may upgrade to an 09+ in a year or two, but at this point I see really no point. I love this car! Q: How easy is it to buy one of these cars? Or something similar? A: Well if you can pay cash, then that makes it really easy. However, if you're looking to finance you'll need perfect credit 760+, at least 20% down payment and of course enough monthly income to cover the monthly payment. I'm pretty sure the banks don't like a car payment to exceed 15% of your monthly income. I still think that's pretty high...I personally wouldn't go over 3-5%. Q: How much is insurance? A: This will obviously vary a LOT based on age, driving record and the insurance company. Mine is less than $1,400 /yr. Q: Is maintenance expensive? A: Not that bad but you should have some money put aside for maintenance and for replacing things if something breaks. If you've owned modified cars before and are used to breaking parts, it's not that much different.
