Chances are you would be seeing my taillights, except on an extremely tight road course

For 150k, there is no substitute. I would rather have a Gallardo as well, and its possible to pick it up cheaper.
I was on the list for the R8 actually. My dealership didn't pony up the cash to deal R8's and my deposit was returned.
