One reason why i like the VT roadster




Its pure bliss to watch that car overtaking you, that rear causing goosebumps on my skin.

Here's my choice

Its the Diablo for me. Its one of the most best looking super cars of all time. Drive it 10 years down the line and it still wont look outdated . The dimensions of that car are mind boggling once you see it in real. Pictures just dont do justice to to the Diablo and I'm sure most of my Team bhp friends will agree with me.

Listen to that 5.7 litre V12 start up and revvv up and you'll surely attain automotive nirvana. It is by far the maddest supercar I have ever heard. Surely it wasnt the easiest cars to drive but I wouldnt care less. I will never forget the day I sat in a Diablos driving seat .

I'll have a VT roadster too and make mine in dark purple please!!!

For me its always been the Countach. I remember seeing the Countach long back in one of the international magazines. Since then the Count-Tak (thats the way i used to pronounce it then *) has been my most fav Lambo of al times. Close second comes the Diablo.

Italian carozzeria Marcelo Gandini's masterstroke, the Countach (which incidentally is an expression of amazement.....along the lines of saying 'wow!!' in Italian). No second thoughts.......it's the Devil himself.

It's the only car I've lusted after, other than the Ferrari 288 GTO, ever since I was a kid. Lambos are truly fine machines and my favourite manufacturer too. The Miura comes a close second, followed by the Diablo, Murci and Gallardo. And of course, there is also the Jalpa and the monstrous LM.

Ok, after long hours of thinking........

I would definitely go with the Gallardo but decided to change my mind for one reason - it does'nt have swing up doors.

Then there is the Murci - a very refined and angry looking car (imo). But not my taste when it comes to looks.

Countach - Oh Yes! that is if they did not produce the diablo.

Miura - mmmm.......no

So finally i narrow down to my favourite lambo of all time.....LAMBORGHINI DIABLO.

No second thoughts, the Miura. Oh so beautiful, and such a ahead in time concept. Started the whole supercar rage. And make mine in black please. Please.

would have chosen the Miura for the looks, but after looking at the pics of the new brute look of the Murcielago Roadster, the Roadster gets my vote.

Cool

Had the fortune of checking out a Miura and Diablo... lucky me got the chance to drive the Diablo as well... though for only a little bit, never can forget the day, the roar still lingers. But will vouch for the Miura (the old one) anyday, even without driving it, with it's lights in eyelids it just captures your mind and heart.

The Diablo is a definite second, the car stands out from it's peers, and beats some of its predecessors.
