This was the one time I took the Lambo to DT Austin…. and that picture happened. definitely don’t want to end up with the his, hers, and ours, situation. That’s even more costly than a night out in Austin
Women and their ethereal beauty is truly intoxicating..............I grew up with six sisters and I was trained well.

My honest answer!Has anyone here ever bought a Lamborghini with the only motive just to prove success? Or to prove that you made it? Or show up others that doubted them? I've seen office workers in their 20s have pictures of exotic cars as wallpapers. Does that mean if they somehow were able to afford a Lamborghini, would they be willing to spend everything they had just to barely afford one, or do they only want one if they comfortably afford one. If that office worker found success and realized they could afford a Lamborghini, even if it was totally unnecessary, should they do it to fill the void they had to look at one on their desktop or iPhone wallpaper? If people made fun of you or are haters, will they suddenly wanna hang out with you or think differently?
I rented a Lamborghini once, people notice you alot more. People thought I owned it but I paid like $300 to rent it for 2 hours. Which I thought was very reasonable to get through my life knowing I driven a Lamborghini. While most friends or people I know probably will never drive a Lamborghini in their life and refuse to just rent one.
If I were to do it. It would probably be a novelty for for a month. But then I would realize this car is not practical. I will always be very exhausted from driving it because its always going to be loud and its cramped. It's a weekend car that can only be a weekend car, and I will still need a practical car on the side like a Tesla. But then, the practical car I do drive is much cheaper than Lamborghini which I can only drive sometimes. What can of person can feel a lifetime of work can feel satisfied driving an exotic car?
They are cool to look at, but they are hard to drive. I feel I have to be very careful driving this car because it's on the verge of being a raw race car for professionals and I feel this car can kill me. I could see a stupid person easily crashing this car if they came from a normal car like a BMW 3 series, even an M3. It's really not the same as seeing them in a video game. When I rented it, I felt like I was carrying a machine gun out in public, like something not normal. If I see an exotic car on the road now, I try give them space because I'm aware they have terrible blind spots and they may want room to go fast.
I mean ya I don't think its wrong if showing off to make people happy. If I want to bring out my bunnies, its the cheapest way to get tons of attention from strangers. People will act like they never seen a bunny before, especially kids, who I am told its their first time every seeing a bunny up close. And most people are happy to see my bunnies, and I hope people can be the same with exotic cars. And I think that's the same with exotic cars, they are unusual when they're in a crowd of normal cars.I bought mine to enjoy AND show off.
Show off= share my excitement with everyone else.
I mean, come on, I get as giddy as a school girl everytime I see a lambo, why not share that with other people!
Show off does not mean "show other people I'm better, richer, etc.... than they are". I mean, I don't need to buy a car for that, I already know that!!
This is a good point. I think this is a good way to give back with an exotic car to give ride to kids. You probably are aware people will just assume negatively show off, but maybe show off can be positive too, especially when kids see them. And kids usually don't have that concept of being jealous about money, they just see a car that looks like one of their toys and thinks its cool.I have loved cars for as long as I can remember.
I had the Countach poster on the wall.
We have been able to raise money for various charitable foundations.
We have let kids sit in our cars and watch their wide eyes and smiles take us back to the very day WE fell in love with cars.
We have granted ride wishes to those who are suffering from terrible medical conditions, and those celebrating anniversaries.
We have let the next generation know that if they study hard and work even harder, they will be able to accomplish any goal they set.
So….I guess you could say we bought the cars to show off. I hope that we are judged in a positive light for doing so.
You mean you sissies don't just taxi your Gulfstream down the highway in lieu of some pedestrian internal combustion vehicle that can't even do mach 0.8? The view from the cockpit lets you anticipate traffic so effectively.I only drive my Performante to the airport where my Gulfstream is stored.
