Lamborghini wouldn't accept my firstborn as down payment. This is most unfortunate.

Car is gorgeous! My only dislike is the center console trim/styling. Just doesnt seem to fit the lambo elegance.

I love everything about this car, except one thing, and it wasnt in that video. On cars with the optional rear view camera (which that car in the video didnt have), the camera for it is placed right below the Lamborghini name plate. Not under the lip, but directly below the plate itself. So, you get a big black square camera lens an inch below the iconic nameplate. Very gaudy.


I love this car though, the overall exterior and that display setup in the dash. So cool.

Wish they would've given that review to Clarkson or Mays instead. Hammond has been my least fav of the three for awhile. That review was boring, which sucks because I was looking forward to that more than anything this season.

I wanted to see it compared to other cars and I dunno just something a bit more dramatic. Still, that was a very impressive laptime.

WHATT.

How could you hate that center console? It has the start/stop button there... under a red flap. I'd pay the $400,000 just for that.

But anyway, yes, the car is awesome. Do want in white.

Super awesome car, I like it A LOT! I think it is the most radical car of the regular cars since now we have the i8 as the most radical of the radical. Anyway, the Lambo is great and I would pay what it is worth as I believe it is worth the money.

On the downside, and as mentioned by Hammond, the lack of enthusiasm shown in the Lambo, and the McLaren have me worried that indeed super cars are loosing the sensation of a machine that is a challenge to use, a real heart stopper, not just a bunch of cool gizmos, technology and good looks. I really hope that Ferrari is listening to all this before they come out with the Ultimate Ferrari,... the 458 still has that passion, and if they can keep it with the new one and also beat the rest, the will still be King and the fight will continue, otherwise,... Game Over.

A 12 cylinder Lambo that's not trying to kill you?
Looks like I'll have to buy something else.

Some buttons/knobs were recycled from Audis... why not make special ones for the car?

This car just went to the head of my dream list.

I like the interior. It's like a fighter jet. Even though I like the minimalistic 1er interior, if I had a choice...I'd take the clutter of a fighter jet. I cannot wait to get a car with digital gauges like this or the LFA. Love the graphical interface.
