they need to change that shape...for 1 its bad...2 it looks like a cheaper alternative to bugatti veyron and on top of that...they are going to share technology i believe..

i think its useless to build something like this...may be an M6 and M6 CSL/F430 contender would have been better with sleeker lines...an A9 or something..

I cant beleive Lambo stays quiet and lets them do this engine sharing thing!!!

I know the Gallardo uses a developed version of Audi's V8, but cant they at least keep that exclusively for Lambo? Damn, everyones' at it these days!!
