    I'm 6'4, my wife and I love Lamborghini's. After watching the Lamborghini episode of rides on Tuesday nite. We'd love to when we can afford a Diablo or Countach or Jalpa or 350/400GT. My question is whom the tallest driver here and which Lambio do you have. Just worried about my height issue.

    Thanks

    A good friend of mine is 6'3", and he is very comfortable in my Murcielago. He has driven it a few times, and had no problems with his height.

    I'm 6'2 and can't fit in any of the modern or older Lambos with comfort. I just spent some time in the Gallardo and a Diablo 6.0 and neither of those Lambos fit on me. The Murci is unfortunately the same story. Unless you customize the car to fit that is...

    Jermemy Clarkson of Top Gear is pretty huge, and he fits into them.

    6' 3" and can drive a fit in Diablo no worries! Countach is tight, but can do it-perhaps not recommended for long trips. Spent good times driven both.

    I purchased Ron Harper's (Chicago Bulls) Diablo this summer and I'm not sure how tall he is, but my 6'0" frame works.

    That was Ron Harpers Diablo 6.0! I didn't know that! About how many miles did he put on it, you know?

    Hi Coujer
    I am 6'4,for me the Murci isn't bad at all but the Countach is absolutely impossible,no headroom(even with those extremely deep bucket seats) and no leg room what so ever.

    I saw Dennis Rodman take delivery of his Black Gallardo, there was comfortable head room but he removed his sneakers before driving off. Maybe not enough shoe room?

    Stats say that he is 6'6.

    here's the OTHER side of the story -
    I'm 5'8" & the top of my head skims the top of my Jalpa -
    Marco mentioned C/T's - I've heard similar stories about lack of room -
    part will be due to your sitting position/posture also -
    heck -
    just have FUN "trying'em on for size" - the salesman might not have heard that line before ;-)

    Placed in service Aug 01, 971 miles Nov 01 (initial service done) then they burned up the road with another 1300 miles before I bought it this May. I now have just over 4K on the odometer.
