But isnt there the S7 TT now, producing 750bhp and the first production car in this century to be less than 3 secs 0-60?

but like someone pointed out murcielago is not in the same league as an enzo...so really no comparison.. i really think audi should add another 7th concept to the lamborghini model range..a super exotic car in excess of 500-600k competing with the likes of the new Enzo probably due in the next 5-6 years and probably the CGT and revised SLR which will have 650bhp and better aero pkg..

4 they already have, they are considering a panemera competitior..forgot the name..and then a SUV..so a super exotic would just fit the bill perfectly..

hey devarshe84

Pagani's Zonda is the only one that i can think of as a regular production supercar . but its faster than the LM by 24 kph.
Koenigsegg CCR is also not a LE (correct me if im wrong). but its some 390 kph.
Anyways i think the Lambo engineers have done a great job considering the fact that they have no direct assistance from F1 (FEnzo & MMSLR) or LeMans(CGT).

I am on the way of putting up an article on all the supercars. May take some time though to collect all the information.

2 cars from 2 different categories....they aint no match for eachother. The Lambo's got to have another car to be compared with...the Enzo's right up there with the McLarenF1(now that would be a good poll to post).

I posted this poll as this are the fastest cars from the best stables of Italy. Many more cars come into the picture but which do you think can match that tag which fits on the car.

I wonder why Lambo is smaller compared to ferrari. no racing teams, no limited edition pernaphelia or anything.

no ways can the lambo beat the prancing horse, maybe performace wise some vehicles mite just be ahead of the ferrari but lineage and history wise NOTHING can beat a ferrari, the fact that ferrari road cars were built and sold to sponsar their RACING activity says it all.
so FERRARI is the vehicle for me.

I think Lamborghini has as much a prestigious legacy as Ferrari. Both are now owned by other companies. Ferrari is with fiat( the main expense to fiat before maserati)

and Lamborghini is with Audi(Wolkswagen)

i dont think the lambo can compete with the might italian in legacy.. . i mean the lambos have built the WILDEST, most NON - PRACTICAL, bizzar vehicles. . . jst love it, i love the diablo and the murcielago like crazy but frankly a tractor maker cant stand against a racing giant. me myslef m not a very big ferrari fan, love the lambos . . but need to give credit where its due.

I love the lambos more for just the reason that Ferraris are now commerciallized completely but lambos still hand make only 300 Odd cars a year. kinda keeps the exclusivity.

btw just heard that now lambo will compete ferrari in laptop market too.

If it's legacy and lineage then the ultimate in my opinion is Aston Martin.No car can compare to an Aston.

Thumbs up The prancing horsy may be nice....but the Raging Bull still Rules..

hey !
I always wanted to say this "Nice Horsy"...well the Ferrari's may be powerful and all that but the massive commercialisation of the company has lead to a let down in exclusivity. The Raging BULL still remains an exclusive race that only a few still dare to tame. The Lambhorgini Any day for me...It definitely is the ultimate adrenaline Rush...just to see that bull pass by me or to watch it on TV gives me a high...I dream of driving one some day...
"ALL FINGERS CROSSED"....
Regards to all who LOST...
