Hey, nothing against german cars I love BMWraymondo said:Butt Ugly, looks German, more VW than anything else. They already own the greatest supercar on the planet, what are they trying to do, one up it?
I don't know what they're trying to prove but I hope it backfires on them.
Au contraire, Mr. Raymondo, who would you rather have Lamborghini owned by? I mean, I love the cars, we all do, but the company can't hold itself up- it doesn't make money. Personally, I think Audi/VW is a good company to have Lambo in the hands of. If they wre owned by GM, then we'd have a problem. But as long as it's in the hands of another European company that has good financial background, I woulnd't worry about Lamborhgini, as long as the Italians are still doing the design.No offense, but everybody knows I HATE Audis ownership of Lamborghini, and I get a little excited
Agree completely !DaLamboMan said:I really dont know what you are all fussing about. That car doesnt look like the Gallardo at all so I really dont see a problem there. I love the Gallardo and Murcie so for me only good things came out of the takeover from Audi. Did something bad happen from the Audi ownership? Please tell me because I only see benefits.
I can agree with that- let's have the Italians design it (they are, with the Gallardo and Murcielago). Germans are good at engineering- look at Porsche, revered to be some of the best sports cars in the world- but has the design ever been heart-achingly beautiful, reminiscent to a Lamborghini or other such Italian supercar? I think the best example is BMW. Unbelievable cars- on the inside. The outside? Mediocre, at best. The new(ish) 5-Series, especially, has a commanding presence, but it really is awfully ugly.raymondo said:Yes, the financial point I can't argue with, but it came at one heck of a cost if you ask me. Lamborghinis to Audighinis and the Italians are NOT doing the design, now they've got a me too model, which is hilarious. When did the germans ever STYLE anything?! Can't they just check thier egos? Why would they want to dilute thier own brand?
I'm sure the Italians will become pitifully inept in the engines and mechanical depart too, if they haven't already pushed them aside.
