    I'm sure the folks at Audi and Lamborghini will be extremely disappointed to hear that you won't be placing a deposit

    I think its the opposite… the Gallardo is the pseudo-lambo: an audi infused creation that bastardized the wild and outrageous lambos of the past into something more german and refined.

    That's just fucking tragic.

    The CGT must have the highest death count of any modern supercar.

    RIP to both.

    Why do these guys let inexperienced people drive such a high powered supercar? What kind of idiocy is taking place with the traction control on? Such a shame, cgt is like a death trap.

    CGT is not like a death trap. it IS a death trap. I'd still love to own one though.

    The CGT has never looked, to me, like a true super car. It looks like a Porsche that suffered from leprosy.

    I don't get this either. Without a bit of training or an orientation these cars are dangerous. I wonder if the driver disengaged the traction control.

    the driver, and other victim, was supposedly a experienced race car driver, roger rodas.

    even on top gear the stig (usually a F1 driver in reality) had trouble with it spinning it multiple times on the track. it took a professional F1 driver a whole morning to finally figure the car out before testing the track times on the top gear track.

    Damn, were they pronounced dead in the spot? Did their bodies just incinerate?

    RIP.

    One quote I just read said some of the other guys at the car show all rushed to the scene and sprayed multiple fire extinguishers on the car to no avail,
