I drove a Lamborghini Galardo today...

Unbelievable car... Fast, sexy, handles like, well like a lambo. E gear is sooooo sweet... Blips the throttle for you on downshifts, and smooth as silk. The car has an exhaust note like no other, and opens up at wot... Just driving it around normally is great also. It can act completely docile around town, and turns into the devil when you get on it... Had it to the limiter through 1,2,3 on kingery and man, if i had that car, i would never feel like i needed to ride ever again... This thing really is point and shoot. Oops... Gallardo has to l's

You don't want a car where you can't take it past third gear without breaking the law?

That thing broke most speed limits in 1st gear, (around 60) and definitely every remaining one in 2nd (90ish).

1/4 million dollar 1995 Black Diablo VT w/ $5,000 optional 'tail'. (This is also the one that just 'stopped' 1/2 mile from home as the owners were driving it home from the dealer) Hence... why I would never own one.

True and most of the Lambo Engine is from Audi Designers hence the blessing of saving an otherwise dieing car company

Audi owns the new lambos and there is alot of audi stuff in them... Much more reliable than the old stuff...

In all honesty, it is one helluvah car - A few of the die hard Porsche only boys from Players Club bought these and they swear by them - These are guys that would never even look at an Italian car before and then when Audi stepped up the quality control and made them worth the $$, well, they have bigger garages now - Sweat ride bro and if you are serious about it, yee shan't be let down - I have been on Autobahn in one and was scared for my life and thrilled to the bajesus all at the same moment - Wicked fast they are
