    the wing was available eve before of that crash.

    Looks are not importaint, everyone likes diff things. Although the car is sexy.
    Koenigsegg doesnt need more than a v-8 to make over 1000 hp.
    It weighs 2800lbs roughly.

    End
    you can have 1500 hp from a 1,5 liter V6 engine, hire an old Honda engined Formula car.

    or about 1000 hp from with any of those Group C cars, regardless of the cylinder's disposition.

    or you can have thousands and thousands of hp from a I6 diesel engine, hire a boat.

    do you know something about engines?

    but in all seriousness, I'd take the Enzo. The Porsche would overwhelm me, the Koenigsegg needs a Top Gear wing (), the MC12 is merely a rebadge with no rear-windows, and the Zonda is too Teutonic for me. No, I like me my traction controls and fancy gadgets.
    as said above, the Top Gear Wing was nothing new.

    The Bugatti Veyron and the SSC Aero would like to have a word with you about that...

    It's got a German engine. I mean, that's like terrible, isn't it? If I remember correctly, the last time the Italians and the Germans worked together, that didn't end so well.
    I'm dropping out to create a company that starts with motorcycles, then cars, and forty years later signs a legendary Brazilian driver who has a public and expensive feud with his French teammate.

    Well... except for reliability, the Zonda excels in performance...

    Same goes for the Lamborghini Murcielago LP640 and Gallardo LP560... They got german engineering and it works for them...
    Everything ends at 666...

    The Murcielago doesn't. Well at least the big chunk of metal behind the seats is purely italian. And about 40 years old.

    Is it a naturally aspirated V8?

    I doubt the current V12 shares much with the original one in the 350 GT.

    It can trace its roots back to the original 3.5 litre engine though.

    Just like the current 6 and 3/4 litre Bentley engine is from the 50's.

    Yeah, the engine is pretty much italian... But the rest of it (including the dimwitted AWD system) is german....

    Actually that's not the case since I believe it's based off the Diablo VT's four wheel drive system, a car which was introduced long before Audi bought Lamborghini.

    The Murcielago is quite italian.

    Yeah I guess it was a bunch of evolutions that resulted in today's engine - I read Wiki after you said that. I am not an engineer, but engine evolution perturbs me to an extent as evolution as opposed to clean sheet design would in my mind be less than ideal as certain older less advanced design elements n may linger on longer than they should and if you are boring and stroking the engine and things like that this may upset the original design and make things less reliable or some such things.

    Looking at the 6.75 is pretty key - in the 1981 Silver Spur it is 6750 cc with a bore or 104 mm and stroke of 99.1 mm with a compression ratio of 8:1. In the 2008 Arnage Final Series it is 6761 cc with a bore of 104.2 mm and stroke of 99.1 mm and a compression ratio of 7.8:1. It's still OHV - the block has gotta basically be the same as it was when the 6.2 was increased in size to 6.75 in 1968.

    Now that is ghetto.

    EDIT: What about the Murcielago did Audi have influence over? How German is it exactly? Ditto Gallardo.

    Quite Italian still but not as much as that of the Diablo and Countach...

    It is just a little too civilized nowadays...

    Lamborghinis before like the countach and diablo were not very convenient to drive as an everyday car...

    Now, if you have the money for the fuel. You can drive a Lamborghini murcielago everyday as a roadcar... It has Sat Nav, Airconditioning that actually works, etc...

    As Jeremy Clarkson said, Audi is taking away Lamborghini's soul...
