Default Lambo Any Day

Definetly the lambo for me , ferraris have stopped being beautiful after the ugly 612 , i expected a better looking ferrari & besides that the 599 is a GT car & not a hardcore supercar , in a supercar i want visual drama , gullwing doors & the lambo has that - no contest !

Having seen both cars in person,the LP640 looks heaps better,has better specs than the 599,and the 640 is far more exclusive...
infact to lay your hands on the 640 there is over a year's wait here,while the 599 is available almost immediately...
I'd happily spend the extra dough and buy the Lamborghini.

Apart from that, are both cars AC? Do they come with mag wheels? Are they supplying tubeless tyres? Do we have to pay additional for central locking and tinted windows? What about the music deck system?

Which car has the better average? I am not an ignoramus, i KNOW these are both petrol cars, but what about the diesel variant?

These are important questions before I choose from these 2 cars and cast my valuable vote. Thank you.

Typical, sam.

Just wanted to add my 2 cents worth in this thread .

As the great Frank Sinatra said " You buy a Ferrari when you want to be some one. You buy a Lamborghini when you are some one"

Figure out what side are you on then.

So you have the porsche, have bought the LP640 and intend to buy the F430 Scuderia. So where do you belong my friend.

PS : I understand both the Lp and 430 are in different segments and not comparable

Nope, not odd at all. If my memory serves me right , the Diablo SV was in purple and it looked fantastic.

The Special Edition was the 40th Anniversary Edition.

Well " Enzo Ferrari had a dream and Ferdinand Porsche crushed it! " said another man.

I dropped the 430 idea. The car is being replaced by the 480 next year. Heading for the R8 now.

I'd go with the 599.I love its looks & if it can growl like a typical Ferrari,then I'd fall in love with it all over again.
