    But it's still one of the most beautiful cars from it's era, and the first to be labeled as a supercar.

    I disagree. Many car experts tend to label the 300 SL as the first "ňúsupercar'.

    Please elaborate.

    Lamborghini is owned by Volkswagen. A lot of the switchgear in the Lamborghini cabin is the same as what you find on an Audi. I don't think this is a bad thing, however. Before VW took over, Lamborghini cars were not particularly reliable or finely finished cars. Morever, Audi interiors are some of the nicest on the market, regardless of price. To my mind, Laborghini has only benefited from becomingly slightly more German.

    I don't mind the Reventon, but it is priced ridiculously, even with regard to ridiculously priced cars go. If I had unlimited funds, I don't see what more I could possibly want out of car than what I'd get out of a Ferrari F430 or 430 Scuderia.

    For what the price of the Lambo, you can get an Enzo (well, when the Enzo was still being made). And the Enzo is a far, far better car, in every sense of the word.

    Oh, I don't disagree that the Enzo is a vastly superior sportscar. But the Lamborghini is more luxurious and comfortable in daily driving--not that you'd really need it for that if you've got $1m+ to spend on a car. I like the Enzo better, but they were built with somewhat different functions in mind.

    The F430 is still on the edge of daily usability while easily outperforming any Lamborghini. It's also available while the Enzo isn't.

    Does anybody with a penis longer than three inches even consider buying a supercar? I mean, the Enzo, this Lambo etc, they are all ugly as sin. Why would anybody bother?

    On top of the ugliness, I would be mortified to be seen in one of these things.

    Well, they are fast for one. And if you track them, they can be a lot of fun indeed. Fro street driving, if you know what you are doing, taking a fast turn in a Ferrari is an experience that will put a smile on your face.

    But I agree, the F430 is perfect, no need to step up to the Enzo. I think the Reventon and Enzo look good. Not amazing like say a 1937 MB 540K Spezial-Roadster, but you can't have everything...

    I'd just go with an Aston DB9 Volante if I could afford anything in that range.

    Yes, and I consider it one of my great mistakes [​IMG]. I am looking forward to carlessness.

    Cayman. It's fine and a nice car, it just isn't me. I don't get the whole sportscar thing.

    A Cayman S is my dream car. Barring that, a Lotus Elise. Barring that, a Honda S2000.

    Could it have killed Porsche to add a LSD option?
