    Nice.

    I see another ironic thing in this photo besides teh obvious doors. Notice the Civic, with the large rear spoiler giving the FRONT wheel drive car massive amounts of REAR down force. I am sure this really helps the econo-box put the power down.

    The Lambo is spoiler-less.

    How embarrassing it must be to drive around in a car like that.

    I get embarassed standing around Lamborghinis. If Stefano Ricci made a car, he'd make a Lambo.

    The spoiler is purely for show, I doubt it adds any measurable down force. And even if it did, it wouldn't be for the purpose of putting power down at the speeds it would you would have to operate for it to make a difference, rather, it'd likely be for high-speed stability (like most road cars). If the Civic made enough power in the first place. I believe the Gallardo has a somewhat sculpted underbody to limit lift like most exotics these days. I'm curious, would anybody take a Gallardo over an F430? Or even a 360 Modena for that matter?

    This was my point, the rear spoiler is for show much like the cheesy door modification. I think we all know this. The irony is that the car has it, and doesn't need it.

    No. I'll take it over an Audi R8, though.

    Lambos are famous for their scissor doors that swing up to open. This picture is ironic because the Lambo doesn't have it, and the cheap Civic does.
