    lambos have always been too 'look at me' for my taste. in fact i find them to have a complete lack of taste. but thats fine if you are a new moneyed, wanna be racer with no clue about racing. i think that is why i dislike them. they are designed purely for the poseurs. they are slower than they could be, performance is a an afterthought, and driving position is compromised to say the least. that is not what i want.
    Don't get me wrong I probably like handling and speed as much as you do. But since there's almost no trackday infrastructure here and they main use for road cars are public roads, I'm not interested in that last 10th.

    I also don't want a car that's perfect but which leaves me completely cold. This is the reason why I don't like the Veyron or the GT-R and I'd wouldn't want to have them. Yes, they are very good, and very fast and very advanced, but somewhat it feels like they are just fast moving objects, with no character, soul or passion.

    To be honest if I had to choose between objective capabilities and subjective enjoyment, I'd choose the latter even if that meant ending up with a bad car.
    Lack of charisma can be fatal.
    Visca Catalunya!
