Could a Lamborghini LP560-4 Spyder be used as a daily driver in the IE? I've seen quite a few Ferraris and even a Murcielago here in Redlands...

I think a better question is why would you want to. The amount of maintenance and depreciation brought on due to mileage will completely hill the resale value on the car.

I am not sure on the maintenance requests on a Lambo, but I know what it takes to maintain a Ferrari.

If you were given one for free here is a sample idea of your cost.

Oil Change $300.
Tune up Every 3,000 to 5,000 miles $1,200.
Engine gasket replacement every 30,000 miles Unknown but costly

The Ferrari is a high maintenance car and like the Lambo it requires a lot of service. It loves to be handled on the road and in the shop.

I have exotic sports cars and convertibles but not exotic convertibles because if you drive a fast sports car with the hood down you get to you destination covered in dust.
Buy a coupe and drive with the windows shut tight and the air-con on max.

I suppose you could drive anything your little heart longed for, if you wanted to.

Well, we have a sports conv. (a Mercedes AMG), and we never get covered in Dust.

The question is:

Is a Lamborghini fine in the IE?

The question is not about what car to choose or how is the maintenance.

And I guess I just missed the point on this one. Why would you not be able to drive one?
