Re: lamborghini

I don't like their price tag Otherwise they are very subjective. Its funny for me. I feel like when they design something new, its on the cutting edge of style and it will be really cool in three years. Then three years pass by and the style looks dated.

I've honestly never liked Lamborghini styling either, more specifically the Countach, Diablo, Murcialago, and Gallardo. They just seem too brutish for me, unlike Ferraris or Porsche. I can see why they appeal to some, but I like the more refined styling from others I guess. If I had the money to buy a Gallardo, I'd probably get a Ferrari 360/430 or wait for a Porsche 997 GT2 or Turbo.

I really have no problem with them at all. The black Countach in the movie "Cannonball Run" was rather cool looking I think.
A few months ago as well, I was sitting at a light and I hear this very deep rumble sound go by me. I thought it was some type of muscle car like a GTO until I looked over and saw a Lamborghini Countach. I don't know if it was just me but that thing was HUGE!
I think they're pretty cool, fast cars.

Re: lamborghini

As a guy who can't afford any of them, I love them all, especially diablos. If I could buy a lambo, I'd buy a diablo. But if I was actually rich enough to buy them, I think I'd only get a diablo, and after that, I'd rather have ferraris, and maybe another diablo lol.

Re: lamborghini

The Lambos from the 60's were fantastic, I think.......the Countach looks it's best in 1/24 scale die cast, lOl.
The Diablo seems to be aging pretty well, and the new looks from Lambo are pretty hot, I think.

But yeah, overall, there is something about their best-known cars that isn't very "mature" looking- like the design is driven by some sort of theme, but not developed all that well, or detailed. Ummm, sort of like just about everything from the new Chrysler Corporation (no offense). The only difference is, the Chryslers' looks pretty much reflect what they cost.

But really, what can I say- I drive a Rodeo.

Re: lamborghini

I must first say i love lambo more than the other super cars, but i think the reason they seem to age to quickly is when they are designed they are in your face for the time but 3-4 years later other cars have taken on that shape. **also must note WTF happend with the gallardo rear end i love the front but the rear is ugly.*

some lambos are ok. The gallardo stinks 'cause the doors open out instaid of up. But Murcielaglos and diablos are my favorites. I think they are one of the least expensive cool exotics. unlike the enzi, F1, and carrera.



here's a modded murcielago

Re: lamborghini

Murcielago's and Gallardo's are brilliant Audi's, but lousy Lamborghini's.


Lamborghini's aren't supposed to be easy to drive, reliable or overly sophisticated like Audi's are.
