    Give the perfect excuse to upgrade it to an ANSA Sports Exhaust if you can find one. But would you remove the backup camera it looks like he has installed also? I have to admit - those look like they'd be handy!

    Nothing difficult about finding an ANSA exhaust. I hope he does do just that. Agreed.

    Looks great. You should powdercoat the whole exhaust from the headers back in Black.

    ,
    We have made quite a few Sports Exhausts now and most customers prefer the polished SS look!

    The camera doesn't bother me nearly as much!

    Thank you for sharing.

    Perhaps gently suggest that you recommend ceramic-coating it satin black for them and it'll be period-correct

    I need some help. I am looking to acquire an owners manual in superb condition for my 1985 QV downdraft. Before you suggest eBay or “talk to Emilio”, please know that I have obviously searched those options.

    A few key things to note - Lamborghini published three versions of owners manuals for the downdraft; 85 - version 1, 86 - version 2 and 88 - version 3. The reason for the versions was the changes that Lamborghini made to both the dash layout and the central tunnel ventilation/air conditioning controls. While many details in the manuals changed, three photos are dead ringers for the version I need. Please see images below -

    Again, the dash, the ventilation controls, and finally the early tool kit contents photos.

    If you have one, or know of a source, please help me find what I need. Thank you.

    That second image (page 20) is actually of an LP500S.

    Correct. It is the same image used in both the 5000S and earliest (85) QV owners manuals. That photo was in fact taken of a 85 QV owners manual.

    Yes, indeed another one of the nuances of the model range

    Hi Joe - this was certainly the only Blu Acapulco right hand drive skirt-less QV. Weren't there any left hand drive ones? Re: Draper - John Draper, not Simon Draper! Robert

    Yes a handful, perhaps the best-known of which is HLA12093, the only Blu Acapulco Downdraft in the USA, imaged yesterday looking like a million dollars with it's brand new set of Pirelli Cinturato P7s mounted
