What's with all the wing hate? IMO, they add more character to the car. On a Ferrari, it would look out of place. But it fits in perfectly with the flamboyance and loudness of a Lamborghini..

i agree with the lambo supporters. lamborghinis are about flamboyance, loudness and a whole lot of earth shaking presence. wings fit right in. in comparison, ferraris are about clean lines. both on the same league, but miles apart in character. im all for the mighty raging bull !

Meseratti looks awesome and its having a different type of Alloys..
Lambos are the best and have a great exhaust note..
I prefer a Bull rather than a horse..

Well, "adding character" is a subjective thing. I hate the look, think it ruins the lovely lines of the Gallardo. On a Murci, I still wouldn't like it, but it would be less obnoxious, because that car is more OTT. The Gallardo has an elegance to it that is ruined by the wing imo.

Probably just a matter of different tastes then. I think it adds a different dimension to the car. I understand what you're saying and it does look out of place on such a sleek car but the more you look at it, the more you realise how perfectly it fits in. Atleast, that's what happened to me.

Think of it as adding off road capabilities to an S-Class. You'll be shocked at first, but slowly you'll start to realise how useful it actually is to have those nice comfortable seats in rough terrain!

(Not the best example, I know. Apologies. )

lol one comment about the wing and you go nuts as if you designed it. It is not the law of nature that every human on the planet must like a car. There are some who love it and some who hate it. If a guy doesnt like a car (or some aspect of it) you cannot force your opinion on him. On car forums you are supposed to give your opinions and not argue with someone who disagrees.

I wasn't forcing my opinion. Just saying why I liked it, and how it's good IMO. You'll notice the first line in my post was "Probably just a matter of different tastes then".

I thought I was just making clear how I came to like the wing, that's all. Apologies to anyone who thought otherwise.

Absolutely, it's just a matter of personal preference. In fact, I think the Gallardo (minus wing, of course!) looks even better than the current LP560-4 in many ways. I do like the Murci-style front air-dam shape on the 560-4 though.
