Depending on where the car has stood, I wonder if anything has collected moisture causing an intermittent issue, distributor cap for example. Something to check or at least tap or disconnect and reconnect are the relays located near the strut top on the o/s wing. Can't remember which does what off hand but I know they can cause starting issues. Crank sensor maybe another culprit as well as the ignition module.
Prefer it to the Lamborghini, like Signor Gandini!
