I'll take one of these, please.

No thanks. This is what virtually any Lambo would look like, stretched on the Z-axis:

And, frankly, they aren't a whole lot better left flattened out.

Good choice.  1/10 the price, and the same (or better) performance.

The word "micropenis" comes to mind.

I like that the article includes a single partial picture of the car. But hey, check out the gold plated Segway!
 
2014-01-08 09:05:25 AM
This particular Veneno is tricked out with a sound system from the folks at Monster, a company familiar with huge sticker prices.

Putting Monster in a Lamborghini is like smearing the Mona Lisa with shiat.

Honestly, that car is ridiculous.  And not in a good way.

I'd be interested if I had the money, but even if I did, all 6 have already been spoken for, so it's moot.

I somehow think that if you went for a ride in it your micropenis would be fully engorged.

I think that's the point, isn't it? To engorge, conceal, hide, put away the shame of, said micropenis?

Just a guess, but someone dropping 4.5 mil on a car isn't buying it for the stereo.

It's a $2.5 million car. The Monster Cables add another $2 million, but you'll definitely hear the difference over the roar of the engine.

I like it.  Way off the wall the way a Lamborghini should be.  However, being as my penis is of average size, I do not qualify as a buyer.

Yeaaaaa... people that buy these cars don't need a house because they already have a kingdom.

These aren't even really cars. They're giant, metaphorical middle fingers that give third-rate scum in desert monarchies something to waste their endless supply of "fark you" money on.

The performance of the GT-R is mind blowing, but it's still a Nissan (I drive a Mazda). The "Super car" I buy needs a  little more cache.

BTW, I will most likely never ever be able to afford a "super car" but I have been watching a lot of top gear reruns on netflicks.
Plus I've never driven anything with any real performance outside of a variety of old and new American muscle cars and an 04 Impreza WRX.
So my opinion is really just a lot of day dreaming. That being said, I like the "German-ness" of the Porche, a lot of performance, all kinds of engineering and just the right amount of flashy.

I'm not really a big fan of the post-Diablo Lambo styling, so I'm going to have to spend my millions on one of these:

I bought a 911 (2000 model) in 2005.  It had 22k miles on it.  It was a convertible (because it was for the wife).  Just about the most fun car I had ever driven, not that I'd had a lot of fun ones.  Had it until November of 2011 when I bought a 2012 GT-R.  Which, at least by my understanding of the term, isn't really a car.  It's some sort of alien space craft.

Absolutely shocking every time I hit the gas even after 2 years.

Yes, it does... With the exception of when you turn the key on the Cobra, it will actually start.  Not just fizzle and leak smoke out of the wiring harness.

No.

Yeah, I am not a car guy. I know design tastes are subjective. But this car has a lot of neat lines and is sure to turn heads. It's got a futuristic feel to it, kind of like when the f-117 was first unveiled.

That's a '64 Shelby Daytona.

The Shelby Daytona Coupe (also referred to as the Shelby Daytona Cobra Coupe) was a coupé based loosely on the AC Cobra roadster chassis and drive-train. It was built for auto racing, specifically to take on Ferrari in the GT class. Just six Daytona original coupes were built between 1964 and 1965. Shelby was reassigned to the Ford GT40 project after that to go compete at the 24 hours of Le Mans, again to beat Ferrari. With this car Shelby became the first American constructor to win a title on the international scene at the FIA World Sportscar Championship in 1965.

The car is pure sex.

[Snip a lot]

Sorry responded to the wrong one.

Lambo's are suppose to look like as you describe.  Look at the Countach. positively weird looking when it came out.

As for pretty cars see my miss-post above. The Continental GT is beautiful, but if I were to go for a Brit car it would have to be an E Type.  Better yet, an Eagle Speedster.
