    I worked at Everyman Racing, and they treated me like trash. The guy who sold you the car used to bully me. He also used to stare at me and give me extreme anxiety.

    I worked for said experience company as a photographer for almost a decade and I photographed this car so many times over the years. I know the car has been abused to hell and its the same as all of the cars that are in that hanger. The whole place is ran by a bunch of con artists that treat their customers like cattle. Everything is ran on a shoe string from the cars to the staff at that place. The events and offices are ran on fear and intimidation by the people at the top. They hire kids that love cars with dreams of glamour and the high life, pay them the bare minimum and work them like dogs. One of the worst places to work ever.

      @ken kennith well I drove one in 2014.. have a photo too.. 1st day I drove to the track it was raining so waited 3 hours (along with others who had booked the Atom) and told it was not permitted on track that day and then told to book another day and come back. It was my 40th birthday and booked through Red Letter Days.. Redeemed through Everyman Racing.

      At the end of the day, he got a lot more content out of it so probably in the end he was still the winner.

    • IMNOTA
      IMNOTA 3 months ago

      @Jonno Wocky Can't really say he won when he did spend 100k on a car in that state, and they haven't hold up their end of the deal so he pays for the missing parts too. I checked yesterday and there's an egear murci for 140k in the UK, surely converting that one to manual would cost about the same as this resto and it would have known mileage and history...

    Mat reminds us that being a hard worker is not only the key to success, but also makes being a good (and sane) person easier. Rather than spending time and energy on having been wronged, he (after what I imagine were a few profanity-laden conversations with his team) just got on with the damn thing - which, at the end of the day, is all anyone can do really.

    Mat may have been ripped off by the people who sold him the car but the rebuild has been some of the best content on YT plus it got his dad involved a lot more in the channel which is great. Some people would have seen it as a disaster but Mat turned the whole thing into a triumph, he's that kind of positive energy personality I suppose.

      Yeah, gotta feel for him about the rip off, but tbf it has resulted in some great YT content for us to enjoy. And if Mat's gonna keep the Murci once it's done then that's a dream car in his garage which can't be a bad thing. Better than rotting in that 'workshop' the track day people have. Have you checked their reviews BTW? Ouch...

    I think more amazing than this build is Matt's patience with that company and the whole situation. Still giggling and going with the flow; i damn well know it couldnt be me lol.

    Idk why but I like this build a lot, I think it’s because we can all relate to you, your just like every other “normal” guys out there and you rebuilt a lambo and got a decent deal on it, and that gives a lot of guys hope..

    I’ve been a subscriber of Mat’s for ages. His channel is entertaining and inspiring. I don’t recall Mat ever mentioning the name of the experience day company on his channel and he doesn’t in this video, but some of the commenters have mentioned a name. In case it’s just rumour I won’t mention the name but I had wondered whether it might be that one. I had an experience day with them a few years ago and when I came to drive my final car of the day, a McLaren MP4-12C, before we set out onto the track I noticed a tyre pressure warning light was showing. The instructor I was with was a sound enough chap but gave me some story about a faulty sensor that they couldn’t fix because they do their own maintenance. It was against my better judgement, but I went out anyway because I didn’t want to miss out on the experience, which turned out to be great.

    This is amazing! I can’t think of a Lamborghini I’d want more. Clapped out but saved and brought back to life! Amazing job!

    I’ve watched the series from the beginning, but this was really fascinating to watch, and learn more about the on goings behind the scenes.

    You always hope that there is some negative karma towards the race day people who did this to Mat. Decent bloke, doing a decent and very interesting thing, getting ripped by second rate people - is not a nice thing to have.
    Complaining to Mat about the negative stuff from Mats followers is just poor, if they had any decency left they would send Mat his money back. And perhaps post a video of them doing so.
    Good luck Mat, love your videos, and the fact you are bringing wrecked cars back to life.

    Matt and his father did a great rebuild, however all the judges out there need to watch all the videos. Maintaining and rebuilding rare cars is troublesome, and even Matt himself took to 'corner cutting' during his rebuild. They did a great job, and watching it driven was awesome. But don't judge too quickly about what steps may need to be taken during such car builds or repairs.

    Used car sales is very shady. Always get every agreement in writing and even then, it’s a gamble. Best of luck to you and great content!

    Mat , it’s a lesson well learnt. One makes bad decisions due to lack of experience and you gain experience by making bad decisions. Wish you all the best mate and it’s such a pleasure watching all your videos.

    This is the best VinWiki car stories I’ve seen, since I’ve been following this rebuild from scratch. The full backstory adds so much more to the ongoing saga 😂

    I felt Matt got scammed soon after he purchased it and I had a bad feeling. Not happy to hear my gut feeling was true, those track-day guys are absolute crooks. I hope they pay for their thieving ways.

    The original instrument cluster might be able to be repaired. It's probably a voltage regulator and supporting components that are fried, not the downstream logic. Source: I'm an EE.

    Based on the $80k that Freddie paid for his with the engine intact I thought at the time you paid way over the top for yours, that said you own a manual Murcielago and I don't (yet)! I hope it goes all the way in Gumball trouble free Matt!

    You have to tell everyone the name of the Track experience company so we’ll never go there or suggest people not to go there. We should not support dishonest people. Congratulations for the rebuilding. You guys are fantastic. Say hello to your dad, I love when he laugh out loud.

      Everyman Racing, based at Prestwold, just north of Loughborough.
      Did work experience with them back in 2016/17, place was a shed. 75% of the cars didn’t run, and the amount of dirt and grime on every car there was insane.

    The driving experience school is totally out of order, they would of cashed in on your car , times over. Companies like that need to be named and shamed. Mat is so likeable and you can tell, first hand that he is such a genuine person. I bet that the driving experience school changes it’s name
