The reason the doors work well on the Countach, Diablo, and Murcielago is because they're designed to lower right onto the rockers and the hinge is mounted on top of the fender, not inside it. Statics demands that the location of the hinge on a normal opening door is NOT a good place to put a sturdy door hinge that is going to have forces placed on it on three axes. This is one of many reasons I will never put a vertical door kit on any car or have much respect for a car with one.

plus it hurts like hell when you smack your face into one.
