If you are looking to make a statement with the looks of your car, your first thought might not be your doors. Most people will look instead at paint, spoilers, air effects, and other visual enhancements. While lambo doors will do little to affect the look of your car when they are closed, they will vastly affect the look of your car while they are open. However, besides the aesthetic improvement offered by installing lambo doors, there are other advantages.
What Are Lambo Doors?
To open a lambo door, also known as a scissor or vertical doors, you push the door out a few inches until it rotates upward at the hinge point. They are common on high-end Italian sports cars, but even if your car was not originally designed for use with scissor doors, you should be able to install an aftermarket kit to turn your existing doors into lambo doors.
What Are the Advantages of Using Vertical Doors?
If your stock doors work just fine, why should you install vertical doors? There are a couple main advantages to using vertical doors instead of regular doors. Here are just a few:
1. In some cases, lambo hinges will allow your doors to open wider than they otherwise would. You will have to check with the hinge manufacturer to see if this will be the case with your car.
2. If you have to park in a tight space, then normal doors that open outward can be a problem. The doors may not be able to open enough to allow you to get in or out of your car. Vertical doors need less room to operate, and can, therefore, make it easier to get in and out when you don't have a lot of room.
If you are interested in installing vertical doors on your car, it is important to know that you will not have to alter your car to add the hinges. The hinges for vertical doors will install in the same place that the hinges for your stock door go. Thus, it is an easy conversion to make. There are many companies that offer lambo-door conversion kits, and there is a good chance that one of these makes a hinge kit for the make and model of your car, but there are also some companies that will make custom hinges upon request. Thus, if you want to convert your doors to vertical doors, you should be able to make it happen.Share
