WANT

Went to get ice cream earlier and stumbled upon this:

That, friends, is a 2011 Lamborghini Gallega with a 10-cylinder, 5.2-liter engine, 6-forward-speed transmission (it goes in reverse, too, but, c’mon, why?) and permanent 4-wheel drive. It will go from 0 to 100 kmh (62.5 mph) in 3.7 seconds and 0 to 200 kmh (125 mph) in 11.8 seconds. The wheelbase is a shade over 8 feet. It sits less than 4 feet high, but it’s so low and tight that standing next to it you get the weird illusion that you could somehow pick it up and put it into your pocket. It’ll get a shade under 20 mpg at a sane cruising speed if my metric-to-English conversion is close, but, really, kids, if you’re driving a Lamborghini, do you care about fuel consumption?

List: $225,000. As shown: About $250,000. FTC disclosure: I received no compensation for this announcement except the small thrill associated with standing a couple of inches from automotive greatness.

  1. I can’t even imagine having the title to something like that but I like the owners smart no knick/dent parking.

    They wrote a song about my WANT car.

  2. Oh that’s mine… Sorry about the poor parking job, but you know… I feel since I can own a car like that I shouldn’t have to live by societies norms or share my parking lot with you little people.

  3. When I see a car parked like that I always figure whoever was driving it really can’t afford such a car.

  4. Liv — now that I know it’s yours, next time I’ll just accidentally dump my ice cream on the driver’s seat. ;-)

  5. Also, I should have mentioned that it was on display. (There are signs on either side of the car, but I framed them out of this shot.) For those of you not from the ‘boro, we actually do have a place in town that sells Lamborghinis, so come to Greensboro for all your Lamborghini-related needs.
