Mad car ? No rear vision , difficult to drive in traffic , looks like a spaceship , footballers dream ? Volkswagen owned company no less !

Would you want one even if there was £300k sloshing about in ones account ???

No. I love Ferrari. I like McLaren. I think Lotus are special. I was even quite fond of my uncomfortable f type. But Lambos always seem to me to be chavvy cars for people who want an image rather than petrolheads

Love the engine, could not deal with the reputation. A big natural aspirated V12 with a high red line is going to be extinct soon so I love them for keeping it going as long as they have.

If I was going to burn that sort of cash I think it would probably be either a McLaren 720s or something cooler and older. BMW 3.0CS maybe ?


Just time to burn a little more petrol before dinner.

I love them, especially in loud colours, and I’d drive it to death, that thing would be incredible fun in rural Scotland.

No problem, it’s only a couple of inches wider and narrower than most camper vans. Not saying it would have much paint left on it’s chin, but car painters have kids to feed too and I like to do my bit for society. laugh2

Another Lambo gem.
Good to see they are still challenging the styling with their Lambo signature looks.

Yes I know, I realised as soon as I’d posted, but I couldn’t be bothered changing it. I should have asked Hamwich or Bobthetrain if an Oxford comma could be used. I didn’t think so as it wasn’t a list. The sentence was in reply to a question which already inferred that it, ( the Lamborghini),was a wider car, maybe if i’d Included the full quote in the post, it would have made more sense, but then that makes for very long and repetitive posts which is something I don’t really enjoy. Would the sentence work with a comma before “and”? Or perhaps it’s just a bad sequence of words and should read, “ compared to ordinary cars, it’s a couple of inches wider and it’s narrower than campervans.” idea

I’m confused too now, but I’d still be perfectly happy to drive around in a Lamborghini. laugh2

It's really funny that there is a brand, a car model for every target group. From my point of view, Lambos have really worked hard for their reputation, supported by the reputation of their customers - from football players to the shady underworld.

Unfortunately it's really like this when I take a glance into a Lambo, then there's...always! a pushy-looking pimp type or a much too young member of the rather Middle Eastern world community inside. And so they start at the traffic light. Probably I live in the wrong city...

I'd take a Muira any day over one of these moderns... grin2

Heinz, if you ever meet the lady owner of this car, you will find she is a lovely person, happy to talk (about the car and just about any other subject), but I think that probably applies to most owners of classic motors.
She is on the left in this photo (I always try to have a chat when she brings the car to Prescott):

Graham, yes owners of classic cars are different and most of them are always very friendly. The Muira is a rare and very welcome exception, not only in the world of the Lamborghinis but in comparison to most cars.

I wonder how Lamborghini as a company is run , how much of the decision making is done by the Italian local workforce compared to Volkswagen the owners. The brand new factory only recently completed of 160k sq m is massive and must have cost a lot plus all the internal equipment. And its a very niche sports car , how many are they hoping to sell ?

No, all uses - Open field, Mini, Crawler plus your Vinyard and Orchard.

Lambos, beautiful, wonderful, something to get the blood flowing in a sometimes grey world. Second only to my beloved Ferrari.
The Memsahib went on a track experience in a Lambo Roadster at Snetterton and clocked 145 on the main straight, she has never forgotten it.

Lambo's are the most extraordinary looking things - mobile art. Entirely impractical too.

They certainly don't have the affection a Morgan does when you're running around in one.

There is a lovely red Lambo tractor from I would guess the 50s parked at the village at the top end of the Stelvio.

John, I expect there's probably a good number of "classic" Lambo tractors dotted around Italy! Bit like Grey Fergies here grin2

Yes, it's why I sold it after only a year. I felt a bit of a cock driving it if I'm honest.

However, as automotive art, it ticked every box. I bought mine new when there weren't any cars like this on the road - it looked like a spaceship had landed. But yes, brash would be the word.
