If Lambo-loving g thinks it uncool then it must be!

Wild, mad, noisy and outrageous does not automatically make something cool. It can still be pretty desirable for us sad petrolheads but this is definitely not a cool car. Sorry. It just isn't.

ive gone with cool.....

for me it is not sub zero, the Countach was that, it was totally bonkers and completely impractical, but i still love them.

The Mercielago is too refined, the germans took the bonkers Lamboness away, it's still cool but not as cool as the Diablo, this was the start of the move from bonkers supercar to supercar that has lost its definition.

I could get flamed for thinking like that but that's my view....i'll get me coat :coat:

everybody is entitled to their own opinion Jay, i think the Murcielago is the best and coolest Lambo, others (like yourself) disagree which is fine.

the Murcielago was the last of the lambos that had a vague amount of input from old lambo, but audi build quality, easy clutch, gears etc, which for me takes the original lamboness away, they were supposed to be hard to drive, that was there appeal, they were supposed to be scary.

the latest ones are too easy to drive, especially the gallardo which is all audi, just to conservative to be a propper lambo. just gota wait now and see what the Murcielago replacement will be like

certainly not, any would be nice, but a Countach LP500s would be very very nice, loads of vids on you tube. that old 5.0ltr v12 running on 6 webbers, and a race exhaust

I have never liked the Diablo. I love Lamborghini, but for me, it's the Diablo I could live with never seeing again. I can't put my finger on what it is though. I look at it, and the word 'wrong' just comes back. But not wrong in the wrong/right way the Countach or the-one-that-begins-with-M is wrong but right, it's just wrong, naff and cheesy.

So, uncool. Sorry.
+1 Too much of a footballer's car - the current range looks better.

I love the insanity, but it's a seriously uncool car. I'd be embarrassed driving it in a way that most Ferraris seem to avoid. Lambos have always been a tad too vulgar and tasteless. The talent just never matched the image.
