I know it's the car equivalent of "sharp knees", but I got to agree with the above posters.  The Murcielago isn't that interesting visually and for 220k, it damn well better be.

I personally love the old 1980's Countach.

This is why you should be required to take an advanced driving course before owning a vehicle like that...

The Murcielago is an ugly car with an ungainly name, an unfortunate blight on the otherwise fine pedigree of the Lamborghini marque.

The Aventador makes up for all those wrongs, as well.

I suppose it's probably technically better in everything, but the Murciélago just doesn't have the style that the old Countach had.

Wasn't there a ring of people buying exotics in CA with fraud credit and such then shipping them to Asia and such? I'd bet dollars to strippers this is that sort of thing. If you steal from rich people, that is one thing, just get a better driver next time dbags.

I'm guessing they ran away from it so that someone would steal it and they could claim that the damage was from the theft and scam insurance.

Otherwise, why would you spend the money, mess up the car and then abandon the thing you owe $220k on?

This happened in La Jolla. It's entirely possible the owner just abandoned the car, took a cab to the nearest exotic dealer and bought whatever super car they had on the floor at the moment.

Are people being serious when they call the Countach timeless?  Have you looked at one lately?  They're hideously dated looking.  Especially when they started tacking the gaudy wings and boxed out plastic fender flares on them.  If you wanted to show someone the epitome of 80s super car styling, you'd show them a Countach.  I would go so far as to say the cleaner design from the earlier ones made in the 70s looks more modern today, but that's not what most people think of when they think Countach.  Now the Miura, that's a car that has aged well.  I wouldn't turn down an Aventador though.

Stupid? Stay at the scene, get busted for DUI. Flee the scene, claim the car was stolen, collect all insurance munnies and avoid police trouble. Doesn't sound all that stupid to me.

Fuggin Bizzy: This. I'm pretty good with my Corolla, so I'm sure I can drive a supercar at 100+ MPH. It doesn't look hard...

Note:  Just because you own a supercar, it doesn't suddenly become legal to drive that fast.

But you still had to open the drivers door and lean out to back the Countach up.
