    What price should/would most people be willing to pay?????

    You know... when I was looking at buying a replica or having one built I saw so many builds and a varying degree of prices.

    I wanted to get a feel from most on this thread of what you feel would be a reasonable price to pay for either a Murcielago LP640 Replica OR a Gallardo Replica. I know we all have to take into consideration the time involved in putting these together and of course each build varies from not so much detail to very detailed.

    Personally, I wouldn't buy a turnkey, but I think $35K would be reasonable for a gallardo with:
    -Non tube chassic (Fiero/MR2 donor)
    -existing drivetrain - no engine upgrades
    -aftermarket/knofkoff wheels/tires
    -basic interior; nice without a lot of attention to authenticity
    -coupe - not convertible, unless a vert is easier/cheaper to build

    dependingon drivetrainpower and authenticity id say never more than half. if you can getan lp640 for $100k id say no more than $50k but i still see people having trouble paying that. best hopes is for someone to sell the fieros with body mounted and all work done, those are the things that scare people from finishing is there lack of trust in there own stretching and body work. have a interior package with brackets and interior. then a 3rd package with drivetrain. i think people would pay alot for a lp640 on fiero with the doors done

    In the 60s for an Lp640 matching MM's quality, and I cant really comment on a Gallardo. You can pick one of them up used for around the 100K mark. Personally I wouldnt waste my time on a Gallardo considering you see them frequently, the Lp640 on the other hand!! You dont see that too often around here, I actually have never seen one on the road!

    I had a guy offer me $80K the other day for my car when its done. I have never seen an LP640 for less than $200K used, but then again, I dont look to often.

    You guys ever think about using a C5 as a platform? I know it's kind of a weird idea, but I've been putting together the numbers, using a 99-2001 C5 with 345hp v8 and auto or stick, building a tubular chassis using it's complete drivetrain, suspension, engine, steering,etc.... Reface the gauges somehow, the vette has the same wheelbase as a murci, I believe even with purchasing all of MM's nice little interior panels, not including the engine cover though, a replica LP could be built for $65000. I have One guy who is willing to try it, he's coming to visit in january. I've measured the Vette stuff I have and compared it to the tubular chassis and it will all fit without touching the body panels at all, interior or exterior. It will drive just like a C5 vette. And with the reliability of a factory drivetrain. Plus it's legal in California and it will smog just like a vette, just get it registered as an SCV. Which you can do all year long, and does not require an SB100. Enough crazy talk, it's just something I've been looking into, a blend of performance and trying to get the cost down. It's getting too expensive when you put those porsche trannies, custom axles, custom this, custom that, it's drives the cost and labor up high. Sure some guys will pay it, but not many. That's my 2 cents. Jon

    JVD,
    Would you still keep the engine up-front like the C5?
