    No HP increase, but we're getting a yellow/black e-gear in stock next month.

    2004 is getting e-gear as an option, and while not written in stone, rumor has the convertible coming in early '05 and a "GT" type 2WD, approx 630HP version in late '05. Feel free to contact me if you want more info or have any questions.

    There are definitely rumors in the Lamborghini circles of engine displacement increase and therefore power increase.

    Michael,

    Are you referring to the Barchetta when you say convertible?

    Cheers

    Yeah, but I am not sure if they are going to call it Barchetta; that name has too much of a Ferrari link. Also, they are likely going to have an operational top, which the Barchetta prototype did not have.

    Yeah, I think they're going with Roadster. Which is actually a separate concept that never made it past the drawing board.

    I had lunch with Jim Heady the other day and he showed me some pretty cool stuff the factory sent him. We were also mapping out a new region for the Lamborghini Club of America. There is a lot of new interest that has sprung up in Lamborghini's "revival". Exciting times for Lamborghini enthusiasts, without a doubt.

    Cheers

    Just another question, If you had a car I was interested in but i wanted to build a relationship with my area dealer so i have no problems with service and such. Is it possible that you guys would do a trade with my area dealer or something similiar? Or do speciatly dealers not do things like that? Curious for the near future possibly. Thanks
