Lamborghini Murciélago: A 12-year-old’s wet dream…or mine…

Posted by SpaghettiOh on Monday, September 22nd, 2008 in Autos

When a car accelerates you from 0 to 60 in 3.4 seconds, I can only imagine it forcing you to shift to second when you grasp for the steering wheel and accidentally hit the paddle shifter after it throws your ass back in the seat. All wheel drive with a V12? Two please!

Lamborghini Murciélago

I could stare at this gorgeous car all day. Seriously. You wouldn’t even have to pay me! 🙂 I’ve always been a fan of Lamboghinis, and when this model debuted some years ago I remember being in awe that their designs could go from the Countach and the SV to this beast. It’s apparently had some sour criticism for being too heavy or too big. I say F that. If you can’t see the amazing 632HP past the fat of an exotic, you probably shouldn’t be criticizing it to begin with!

Anyway, as much as I would love to own a car like this, I probably would never convince myself to buy one, even if I had the money. I can’t imagine the upkeep a car like this could require. The brakes package alone on this bad boy is 16 grand, so just imagine how much that first set of tires will run ya! I mean, who in their right mind would use an exotic as an everyday commuter? Ehhhhh probably me. 🙂

The awesome people at YouTube now give the option to disable embed codes, so you’ll have to click through to the awesome record-smashing video of Top Gear’s dangle of a shiny object in your face. Check out the vid here. Those lucky bastards…

The review over at Autoblog is actually pretty decent. They’ve got some amazing photography. Check it out…

That’s what you get for reading Car & Driver

The boys at Autoblog seem upset that Car & Driver prefers the BMW M3 over the new GT-R or 911Turbo. You have to remember guys; the magazine is out there to sell itself to people who are generally uneducated about cars and loves to display “hot” autos on the cover to materialistic fools who know nothing about a real driving experience but feel like they’ve made up for it by purchasing an overpriced German Lexus. They like to save money and share that “knowledge” with their readers. If you can look “hot” while doing it, why not pick up a new beemer for a low price that has not-so-comparable results against cars that cost sometimes $20k+ more. You might get absolutely destroyed by a car whose manufacturer you likely can’t pronounce correctly, but DAMN do you have a BMW! What a CHICK MAGNET! Come on guys, stick to Road & Track.
