What Is This?

While waiting for the light to change so I could go home one night last week I saw not one but two of these. I missed the yellow one that was in front. Ferrari? Delorian? I have no idea.

    Looks like the latest Lamborghini to me, Kizz. I believe they call it the Murcielliago (or something like that).

  2. Mr. Chili concurs with Falcon's assessment. He thinks it's a Murcielago - he further thinks is an '08.

  3. Specifically, the LP-640 Roadster!

  4. My next door neighbor had one of those for a while, he always has some exotics around. It is, indeed, a Lambo.

    BTW--my next door neighbor, his wife, and his children, have never, ever, spoken to us since we moved in. We call them the jerk family. He has an auto detail guy over at least once a week to "detail" (what sane people would call "wash," did you ever notice getting your car cleaned got more expensive when they changed the term to "detail")?
    To our observation, the cars get cleaned more than they get driven.

  5. It's the Murcielago.....I first thought it was a Diablo. (I commented on Flickr, but maybe you didn't believe me :-) )

  6. Snob, I have my Flickr account set up to e-mail me when people comment but I didn't get yours (after I read this I went back and replied to most of your comments on my account back there). I may need to check my spam filter.

    OK, so a brand new Lamborghini. 2 of them! What in tarnation were people doing driving them in stop and go traffic down Flatbush avenue during rush hour on a weekday? That just seems stupid to me.

  7. I'm sorry - how is driving a Lambo in stop and go traffic any less stupid than paying 300 grand for said Lambo? Stupid is as stupid does...

  8. I actually assumed (ass of me!) that it was a dealer moving the cars from one shop to another since there were 2 of them and I was thinking it was stupid because of the potential for a fender bender on those extremely expensive fenders.

  9. That car is more costly than a house in many states. I would be embarrassed to drive one.

    My initial impulse would be to say that whoever is driving a $300k vehicle in stop-and-go traffic is trying to compensate for something.

    But then I realize that if I had the money to do so I'd drive a $750k car (the Jaguar XJ220 - makes the Murcielago looks like a VW Bug) in stop-and-go traffic, and I don't need to compensate for anything.

    At least, Cookiemaker says I don't...

    :)

  11. I would love to drive one, but owning one seems nutso to me unless you truly have way more money than you know what to do with.
