True Dippy..I've heard the beast growl,and I have to admit that I love the symphony better than that of the lambo's.

I actually am bonkers about the ZR1. But are conversions safe and good?

ZR1 has a pushrod engine so despite its performance it can't even dream competing with other cars of its class. Even if you want a Corvette go for the Callaway version.

Now what was that buddy? Still it's your opinion. :-)
BTW what do you find vulgar about it?

@KD: What's 480?

@dipen: Much, much better. In fact I find the horse's neigh too refined. The bull's nasty growl is what I absolutely lust for!

Yah it my opinion only. In comparison with 599, not in general.

The styling. Its overtly bold and agressive (in comparison with 599) while obviously looking good.

The 599 looks classy without inventing any new shape. More importantly, IMO thats how I like cars to be, long bonnet and small cabin.

No brother, I intended to ask which manufacturer. I'm probably hearing 480 for the first time.

The lambo is definetly more exotic than the 599,has more presence,looks meaner and better and not to mention faster as well.Lambo all the way.
