maybe for bling and car shows but otherwise not worth it

im not sure our doors can be made to open like that because look at the shape of the murcielago doors, the sides of it slant backwards so that they can lift straight up, but our doors curve inwards so unless u somehow could rig it to pop out and then move up...too complicated IMO

Someone makes a kit for those, but I can't remember their name right now. Suicide doors are the doors that open backwards (popular on hot rods). I think ice1cube is right, the lambos have gull-wing doors.

No... Lambo's have Lambo style doors. The Delorean and other older cars had gull-style doors.

I've heard the work is usually custom and costs between $1k-2k per door. I don't think alot of people like to do it because its very difficult to achieve considering its mostly custom... at least for cars like the Prelude.

I saw a civic with door that opened like that....hesaid the kit ran him like $900 bucks. and his doors opened upwards similar to the lambos, but they were not called gull-wings. The gull-wings open up like this....

Ya, they are called lambo doors. Probably around $2500 to $3000.
It can def be done to the prelude.
But, not meant for daily drivin, mostly for show purposes.
You can get it done where its done right but probably alot more $$$

They are scissor or jack-knife doors, the McLaren has Butterfly doors. The difference between the two is that the scissor doors swing straight up on one axis. Butterfly doors not only swing up but also out. Think of them as a cross-between a Gull-wing and a scissor style.

gull wing


To get exact lambo doors where it opens straight up is not impossible cause anything is possible with money but it is very hard. if you look at the lambo you can see the top of teh door isn't blocked by anything where as other car doors are, also the lock is the opposite of ours, it locks down not sideways. You can buy a part that you install where the door hinge is now. What it does is, you open the door normally for about 6 inches and then push teh door up. You can get a manual one where you open the door and push it up or motorized like the diablo where you open it and it will push itself up. Hope that helps.
