Lots of people are converting the doors on their cars or trucks to a style similar to those found on a Lamborghini. They like the way the Lamborghini doors open and they are able to lift them up in the air like a scissor hinge, also sometimes referred to as gullwing doors. However, these lambo hinges are commonly referred to in the industry as a Lambo Hinge Kits.

Most lambo hinge kits are manually operated, meaning that to operate the door you will need to pull the door handle yourself, pulling towards you and then lifting the door up yourself. The door does open easily if the hinges are installed properly because there are gas assisted struts installed with the lambo kit that will assist in the raising and lowering of the doors.
However, some people want a fully automated Lambo Kit, whereas you are able to just push a button and have your doors automatically open and raise or lower all by themselves.
Usually it takes a custom shop or restoration shop to do this type of installation because it sometimes requires welding. However, if you want your lambo doors to be automatic, then this is what you will most likely need to get the job done:
Two Linear Actuators – These are the motors that will raise and lower your door.
Shaved Door Handle Kit – This is the device that will operate your handles for you.
Door Poppers – These are spring loaded devices that will push your door out from the door jam once opened.
Keyless Entry System – This must have a minimum of 6 channels available.
Miscellaneous brackets and hardware.
Once installed the automated lambo door kit should work like this:
Push a programmed button on your remote that activates the shaved door handle kit, thus releasing the door from the latch. Then the door popper pushes the door out of the jam. Then, pushing another button will activate the linear actuator and raise the door for you.
If the door is now up, you can push a button on the remote and fully lower the door. You can also mount rocker switches inside of the vehicle so (once inside) you do not have to use your remote buttons to lift or lower the doors.
The only manual part in this operation is that you will need to push or pull the doors back into the closed and latched position. There are no automated lambo door kits available on the market as of today that will reach out and pull the door in for you.
Many companies sell parts separately, but you will find a much better deal on the internet if you can just buy the automated lambo kits in a package. Buying a conversion package will no doubt save you money, as well as saving you from a headache in trying to locate all of these parts yourself.
