Hoovie's Lamborghini Murcielago is the MOST AWKWARD Supercar EVER!

Tyler from Hoovie's Garage owns a trio of V12 Lamborghinis and today we're out with the Murcielago Roadster and Countach! First up, the insanely complex process to install the roof to the Murci, before the Hoopties are out with fingers crossed for an incident free drive...
Tyler's collection of V12 Lamborghinis actually includes a third as well with a Diablo Roadster, but today it's about the two in full running order including the Countach and Murcielago Roadster. Prior to getting on the road, the first objective is to install the roof for the Murci, which is far from the easiest process ever undertaken!
Famous for it's fabric roof contraption that must first be assembled before installation, it's one of the most awkward "convertible" systems ever found on a car. Consisting of multiple pieces, it must be pushed and pulled in all sorts of directions before eventually closing down the poppers and having the car ready for a few hours out on the roads.
However, for the drive, the rawness and excitement of the Murcielago is truly fantastic, even more so when giving chase to a Countach on the way too. The seat is angled, the wheel is off-center, the sound is deafening, there's no useful storage, it's all around clunky and awkward but somehow this makes it a true supercar in a way that nothing modern could possibly compete. Ultimately, what a drive!

  • 2:00 The holes they cut in order to tackle the transmission issues, without pulling it out of the car, have not impacted the integrity of the chassis at all. I don't need to be an engineer, just have some engineering oversight and feel for things, to say this wouldn't hurt the car frame. It's far from touching a thinner frame, even less the backbone of the Murcy chassis. The thing that it worked without pulling an engine, and it may be used even in future cases.

  • Sound is BAAAAADDDDDD...

  • Wtf is a "pre LP Mercilagu," they're all Lp's. That's what it is, the third iteration of Lambos "LP" line... The name coined for the first iteration LP400 Countach, followef by the LP500 Countach, then Diablo, then Mercilagu, meaning Lamborghini Prototype, LP is the prefix to the model number, which is usually the horsepower, and Mercilagus are "Lamborghini Mercilagu, LP640" The term LP was coined in the 1960's, so how is there a PRE LP Merci??? When Mercilagus didn't exist until 40 some odd years AFTER the term LP was coined????!???

  • 4:33 Man you just hit the nail on the head of why I hate this era of lamborghini, so much done wrong by Audi AG with these, plus the difference in the engine packaging means you have to remove far less to get at what really runs the engine, also they remapped the engine for the murcie from the pre diablo 6.0, as all a murcie is is just a diablo 6.0 VT with a wider far meltier body, like you can even see it in those stupid air vents they added to the diablo here, now its just covered up with an even uglier melted cheeze extendo bumper thing and it runs on banks of 3 for max torque and power lowdown, as a three banger has more power and torque lower down than a 4. that's why you have that packaging with those two intake things on either side instead of the solid intake runners on the Countach, same with the bat guano gallardo that tavarish had, or has rather, they literally mapped the thing to run on banks of 3 on either side as the engine powers up to max power to get the thing to perform like a V8 lower down hence why Ed said its like the thing has V tec when he took Adam LZ for a drive in his a few years ago, its all about how they mapped the engine injection system to work out. and its the one damn thing the germans did right on them, like leave the engineering, drop the stylists and hire some actual italians guys, as that styling is a disgrace, audi in the front, audi on the sides with the wheels, and a volkswaggen perforated leather interior with a VW Keyfob like I literally saw that interior on a Volkswaggen Turbo Beetle back in the 2000's back then. as christ do they NOT know how to make a lamborghini look good anymore, and to think they got worse also FYi they did make fun of the top back in the day, richard hammond tried to do this in a hurry once at the bull run in spain, like JE-SUS lol its called an umbrella, take it from the bentley doors and carry it with you as it aint gonna work otherwise lol like actually hold on a tick, did someone have an early 90's viper RT/10 with a cloth roof lying at the factory when they made these? lol

  • Beautiful cars and the evolution of the presentation of the engine was nice to see. I was actually interested in seeing more of Hoovie's Prowler. He really did a great job on that car and I think it is highly underrated. Again, great job Shmee. Keep up the great work! BTW since I live in California I am so jealous of people who live in states or countries that do not require a front license plate. Cars look so much better from the front without the plates. The only convenience is coming out out a parking structure and not having to put my parking ticket in the kiosk because my front plate was recognized. That is literally the only convince I have found for the car owner.

  • Tyler's Hoovie's channel is definitely in my top 10 ROworld automotive channels and never miss a video! I find his personality is best with someone in the scene (He kills it with comedy on the Car Trek videos) something like the master of awkwardness! Now Shmee is the king of constant car content and the always flowing dialogue alone can keep one into the video from start to finish! But I will say ~ I don't care for the intro and outro catch phrases.
