After looking at those photos, making a choice isn't all that difficult!

I choose the Lambo!

Dippy, should I guess your choice??

Well that's a tough one since I like the LP640 a lot but I guess ultimately it has to be the 599! Tough choice though!

Lambo it is.
No doubt ferrari is a good car.
But lambo is a gem.
(why gems are expensive - because of their rarity)

Tough choice as iraghava said....But it has to be the Ferrari all the way.

More discreet looks (Compared to Lambos :P ), and that sweet Ferrari soundtrack

Even though I'm a ferrari fan I vote for the lambo. theres something about the lambo even more the LP640 that just strikes the right chord.

I would vote, but what about price?

What is the on road price of these 2 cars? This would be a factor in choosing.

Apart from that, are both cars AC? Do they come with mag wheels? Are they supplying tubeless tyres? Do we have to pay additional for central locking and tinted windows? What about the music deck system?

Which car has the better average? I am not an ignoramus, i KNOW these are both petrol cars, but what about the diesel variant?

These are important questions before I choose from these 2 cars and cast my valuable vote. Thank you.

the 599 is more of a GrandTourer kind of car with the same engine as enzo ( a bit detuned i guess ).. .. i feel it should be more like a choice between the 599, MCLAREN SLR ..

as for the lambo, especially the LP640, the comparison is with a enzo or a carerra GT

anyway among the given 2, "practical " choice is clearly the 599
