Challenge or not,

It will not enhance the operation of the door at all, and it sacrifices functionality for appearance and is strictly done for an illusion of grandeur.

Later, mikey
This is why I really don't "get" doing suicide doors. It adds nothing but a "wow" factor (notice it is a small "wow", not a "WOW") and it is only seen when the car is at it's least attractive time....when the doors are open. I feel the time is way better spent on mods that inhance the looks of the car as it sits there or is driven by.

As mentioned the door on the lambo comes down into a "hole" designed for it. The window for instance is at a steep angle, sort of "laying" down on the roof more than fitting into the side of the car like on the Porsche.
