lambo doors belong on lambos, so the doors look fine to me. Plus, the door most of the time is closed, if youre driving it like youre supposed to. Then again, im not a tuner type guy. Just preference i guess.

Um, nope. Leave the scissors for the Lambos. (Just my opinion...certain cars just shouldn't have them...and I would imagine it would add a ton of weight to the car.)

Your gonna get a lot of different opiions since this is a muscle car. I think lambo doors still look awesome to this day. Saw a local cobalt with them and he was walking up hit the button and bam they opened, beautiful. I thought about putting them on my civic and talked to my local tuning shop and they said not a good idea for a daily driver, need too much adjustment. I don't think i personally would want them on my camaro but I do think they would look good on a camaro. If I were doing it I would definately pop for the automatic ones and the best quality/name ones i could find.

I can't even count how many times this question has been asked since I joined these forums 2 years ago, and every single time that picture comes out and ends the discussion.

I really hope no one puts lambo doors on a camaro ... though if someone is making a show car, I guess it would be okay. But not my style.

The worst car I saw with lambo doors was a bright neon green, 2000 Pontiac Sunfire. I would just feel embarassed to be seen in the car let alone driving it. He should of spent that money on a better car, not saying anything against the sunfire. I had a cavalier z24 when i was going to school and it turned out to be a reliable and fun car.

Lambo doors are pretty terrible. I have seen them on a C5 Corvette and regardless of if you like the look they are a nightmare in terms of getting proper alignment. Also it destroys the resale value of the car which most folks don't take into account.

The official term is called scissor doors they were first made for the Alfa Romeo Carabo (sp) a concept car designed by Marcello Gandini. The early reasons for this design were twofold. One reason was for styling, the other was make the driver's life easier when reversing. Since the car had very poor rear visibility, instead of using the rear view mirror, the driver could open the door and actually drive the car while leaning out. Gandini used the same doors in the Lamborghini Countach whose wide chassis mandated this unusual door configuration. The design was carried forward to the Countach's successor, the Lamborghini Diablo. The only current Lamborghinis in production which use this design are the Lamborghini Murcielago and Lamborghini Reventon Lamborghini has now become synonymous with scissor doors.

It's just a joke, I'm sure most of the people here know that the Murcielago and other Lambos have 'scissor doors'
