    Saw this a few days ago... a Gallardo... a little different.

    I came across this last week and had to stop and get a few pics, sorry for the quality, but I only had my cell phone. I talked to the guys there and it's a 2008 Gallardo wrapped for a company.

    yeah, in my opinion all that wrap has achieved is allowing individuals and companies to destroy good looking cars with tat

    Pretty smart... think about it, it's working! The car is so ugly / weird / unique that you (and probably more guys out there) are posting pictures on forums right now advertising that site.

    That said, ugly as hell.

    There are actually quite a few examples of Gallardos having advertising on it... and I agree with Niko_FX, we're now advertising for them as well...

    well, there is no link to click on, and the average internet user will not bother to retype the sitename....

    Maybe it's just me being petty and jealous, but when I see public displays of money like that the only think I think is 'never buy anything from Groovydo, they have enough money.' Ironically I will then just go and buy whatever I wanted from Amazon anyway while using Facebook.

    The pics are only on one other forum that I can find at the moment, so not yet indicative of 'stealth' spam.

    Another thing to consider is that vehicles used as business transportation (plus in this case advertisment) can be written off one's taxes.
    So... this unfortunate Lambo is both ugly advertising medium for questionable product AND tax dodge.

    Or maybe the man really wanted an Audi that had no understeer and no silly-cool-snob-apple-strabucks image, and that's the only way he could afford it.

    Probably.

    It must work well. Think about it, you see a Lambo and go and have a look, your attracted to what's on it, i bet loads of people look at this car.

    It does look terrible though.
