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.
