^^ I guess its best you reserve your decision until the Cabrera LP-600 comes along. Unless of course you already KNOW that no matter how good a car that Lambo would be, you would still pick the Porsche. LOL
(Dont quite like the name Cabrera. Seems sort of sissy to me)

My decision was made when I was 3 years old Mr. Turbo.

The Cabrera (sounds like a Porsche 911 taxi! *winks* - sorry I couldn't resist ) should make things quite interesting, when it makes its debut. It should have the makings of a true Lamborghini. NOT.

Word on the street is that forced-induction will be employed, and VAG will be ditching the V10 for a more frugal and efficient V8. It's rather unfortunate. However, we can expect it to look somewhat like the Sesto Elemento prototype that was revealed a year or so ago.

So that would mean that it'd borrow several design cues from big brother A-Vent-A-Door *winks*

EDIT: If you think the Cabrera sounds sissy, you should Google the Ital-Design Lamborghini Cala(!)

Yup. Not only the Gallardo v10 ,even the aventador NA v12 and the v12 that will be seen on the 599 replacement will unfortunately be the last of their kind.
NOTHING beats the thrill of a naturally aspirated engine's colossal revs in my books and no turbo/supercharger is going to be a suitable replacement as far as outright feel is concerned. Lag will be negated BUT fact remains that it will always be there. I would always love to listen to the screams and roars of the Lambo/Ferrari NA engine rather than listening to the superchargers hiss or a turbocharger whistle. Heck i can hiss or whistle with my own loud mouth ! lol
Unfortunately downsizing is the need of the hour. Pretty soon consumption/emission restrictions are going to be so strict that these engines just wont work. They are to be enjoyed to the fullest while they are here.
They are all going to end up in some or the other museum eventually.
Lastly, yes the cabrera does seem to have taken cues from the sesto elemento but i will be very surprised if it actually ends up looking better. Maybe it will be more or less the same design language with a few tweaks up front etc. like the Aventador - Reventon similarities.

The Aventador is a great car. But I'd love to see it up against Ferrari's new 599 replacement.
That is some strong writing style. You must put that to some good use on another thread. We are talking about a 700bhp V12 with a Carbon shell here.

Do you think the lp-570 superleggera would be left in the dust as well ? Think again.
Make no mistake, am a fan of the 458 but its surely not going to leave an equivalent Lambo behind. Infact i would tend to believe the superleggera would nose ahead.
Ofcourse i would not compare it to an aventador. Different segment.
Spot on.

29th February is the 599 replacement coming. Interesting battle, this will turn out to be.

^^ it's great to see the grown ups argue technically ;-)

well i am a lamborghini fan - was a ferrari fan till the time i first saw a lambo - and all has changed ever since.

to add some more dust in the confusion - why not compare the flagship models of both the manufacturers?

or maybe the fastest/costliest of each OR maybe product wise comparison - from top to bottom.
like ferrari's basic model VS lamborghini. ferrari's mid variant VS lamborghini's. ferrari's top VS lamborghini's.
price ofcourse is not an element here. both or atrociously priced maybe just a few crores here and there :P

In fact, I do.

And yes I'm aware of the carbon-shell. But that's not as impressive as the McLaren's carbon-fiber tub that constitutes the chassis. Lighter, stronger and more race-car like.

I am glad you are aware of the Carbon shell. I would pass on your personal review of how better the tub is against the shell.

And even if the Mclaren matches lap times of any other production car (great), there are a few things about some Supercars that make them apart from others. That thing is called Naturally made horse power. Also, it doesn't get better if those horses come straight out of 12 blocks. But you know what, i cannot explain this anymore, you have to experience it.

Respect your view though, To each its own.

Whew, where do I start?

Lamborghini Gallardo vs Ferrari 458


Straight line is very different to track times.
