No worries really.
Fortunately I have spoken to Adrian flux insurance and they have confirmed that I can insure the car as a kit car.
I will have full cover regardless of what's on the V5.
I'm very glad about this as I need it insured sitting on my driveway and in my garage. What if it got nicked or decided to spontaneously combust in my garage.
I would have lost the whole lot.
My plans with the car is to get it home. Maybe take a few of the neighbours kids around the block for a quick ride in it. Then!
I'm going to gut it inside and out. Yes. Completely strip it down to the bare shell. Engine out. Everything.
I want to Completely rewire and rebuild whole car and slowely put everything back replacing parts with new parts as I go along to my specification.
At the moment the wiring is a complete mess things don't work. Some things do work. Loads of bugs.
When I've finished the car then will it go for a IVA. Because I know everything will be perfect.
I'm buying it as a project kit car and I will show my progress with the work.
Why am I so interested in is one? Firstly a Murcie is seriously rare. Secondly all the hard body work has been done.
So I just need to rebuild the rest of the car.
When finished. I will be a proud owner of a seriously beautiful Murcielago.

im really gutted that all this has cropped up.
I was hoping that it was straight forward.
Because it's incorrectly registered the car is also uninsurable as I've just found out.
No insurance company will insure a car that is registered as a MR2 but has a Lamborghini body.
You don't spend 20k on a car to have all these nightmares.
I might have to pull out of the purchase because if this.
I'm really gutted and I'm going to put my head down the toilet now.

Ok. Sounds straight forward.
I won't get it de registered yet as I need to move it about until I get some of the bugs sorted.
A couple of garages I need to get it to. Once I'm ready I will go for the IVA test.
Only local garages tho. Just down the road stuff.
If given a Q plate. Can you put a dateless private reg on it rather then having the Q of shame plate fitted.
A Q plate is like putting a cone coller on your dog. Cone of shame. 
Oh sorry to anybody who has a q plate. No offence. It's just my opinion.

Ok so what do I need to do once I take delivery of the car?
I won't be driving the car very much until everything's sorted.
I'm buying the car as a on going project and want to do things by the book.

Interesting reading.
The problem is that the previous owner does not have any receipts of the build.
It's had a few owners since it was completed so I would guess that they have got lost.
I have HPI the car and is all clear.
It was MOTed today and has no advisories.
It will be insured as a Lambo replica kit car. Hence the crazy cost of insurance.
The reg doc says the colour is correct. Orange.
But does say MR2.
What else I need to do?
I've been looking at the DVLA website.
Is a extreme Murcielago classed as a rebuilt vehicle or a radically altered vehicle?

Am I buying into a pile of problems with the car?

Hi.
As some of you are aware I'm in the process of buying a extreme Murcielago.
on its registration document its registered as a Orange Toyota MR2 2.0 injection.
I phoned the DVLA to get advice on how to change the details to a Toyota MR2 Murcielago replica. Or similar.
As expected I got a load of bull down the phone saying I need to fill in section 7 and supply receipts of the body conversion.
Then he said the car will need testing for safety?Huh  Wtf
Firstly the previous owner does not have any receipts of the build or putting in a MR2 Turbo engine.
As this was done a few owners ago.
Then he said I'm buying a dangerous car at my own risk. 
I know that if a copper pulls me over it will be because it's registered as a Toyota MR2. Not. Lambo.
Has anybody had experience of this?
Please let me know.

475  Extreme Forums / Owners Chat / Charity events on: April 22, 2015, 09:26:59 AM
Just wondering if anybody here has used there pride and joy to make some child's day.
Ie taken there car to a charity event, given a ride to a sick child etc.

I came across this video where a Lambo is used to make someone's day.
It wouldn't  matter if it's a replica or not. Not sure about the colour. But it is that wash off paint.

Would you use your car for something like this?



Enjoy.

Hi APD,

welcome to the forum, have you got any pics of the interior?
If you can post a load of pics now, then we can see how much you improve Cerberus as you go along

Cheers

Alex360

Unfortunatly I don't have any photos of the interior. But once I take delivery I will take loads and loads of photos.

Whilst looking at Lambos on YouTube. I came across this video clip.
It's rather funny.
I'm wondering if I should try this with my murcielago so I need a volunteer LOL




Enjoy.

Mmmmmmmm I like Lambo's  Tongue Tongue Tongue Tongue Tongue
Very nice and a cracking colour
Mick

I haven't decided if I rave about the colour or not and if I plan to change it.
I've never owned a orange car.
But I must admit after driving her I was well and truly tangoed. LOL



479  Extreme Kits / Extreme ChitChat / Re: Hello from a new owner on: April 21, 2015, 06:28:12 PM
very nice :-) , great choice! 

Is that a loose headlight ring in the drivers light I see?

Steve
Hi. Yes. There's a few bits and bobs that need sorting out before it hits the road again.
I myself will be making lots of changes to make the car my own. 
Can't wait.

Hi and welcome to the forum ,did you not get the scudo you were after then,

Like mickey said get yourself to stoneleigh and get some pics up soon ,gud look with your purchase, jd
Hi. Unfortunatly not. I ended up pulling out of the purchase as the car failed the new MOT with a list as long as your arm with faults.
So I found something that blew my skirt up 10x that of the 5cudo.


I won't make stoneleigh this year due to having to be away on business that bank holiday. (Gutted).
But I'm booking the holiday for stoneleigh 2016 one year in advance.

This is my Cerberus.  Shocked Shocked Shocked Shocked

No no no.
 
I was buying a Ferrari replica. But it failed the mot. So I pulled out

The Orange Lambo above is going to be my latest purchase
