    I would take murcielago than c12
    because of the awd, hp, torque.
    sure it weighs more, but i think the awd, and 30 extra HP and more torque seems better than weighing about 200pounds lesser.

    id most certainly take the zonda, although everyone is like OMFG its a murcielago, its even a better OMFG when you roll up in something no1 knows what the hell it is and looks as outrageous as the zonda. Im sure the muricelago is a better road car, but i like the zondas style. that guy who quoted something from top gear saying how the diablo is supposed to be the biggest head turner, later on in the clip, he talks about how the diablo is rather nice to drive, and from what ive read, the murcielago is far far nicer then the diablo, thanks to a lil bit of "audification." also, the zonda is quite a bit quicker then the murcielago, which is fun <A BORDER="0" HREF="http://www.supercars.net/emoticons.html"><IMG BORDER="0" SRC="http://speed.supercars.net/cboardhtml/emoticons/smile.gif"></A>

    as for the weight, the guys on top gear said even though the car is like 600 lbs heavier, the murc handles better.

    id take the zonda cuz its badass.

    I agree.
     
  5. Re: Lamborghini Murcielago vs. Zonda C12-S

    MURCIELAGO IS WAY BETTER

    i dont give a #$%# about the AWD and more HP and Torque.. the zonda is plain ugly as is made for the track.. not the road.. so id choose the murcielago
     
  6. Re: Lamborghini Murcielago vs. Zonda C12-S

    I pick the Zonda, simply because it's more Exclusive.

    Lamborghini could easily make a faster car. If they tried. More speed will come!!!
     
  9. Re: Lamborghini Murcielago vs. Zonda C12-S

    the zonda is a bit lighter but lets not forget it has an extra 1.3 litres to play with. both are good cars but i think the lambo looks better

    The Lamborghini is capable of going much faster than shown in the top gear video.Clarksons launch in the murcielago sucked(A better driver could have given the Zonda very hard competition).If he had done a drop clutch start from 5000 rpm with the traction control off, the murcielago could have gotten a small amount of wheelspin in all four tires, giving the tires a chance to get grip on the road so the engine can be floored as soon as possible, getting an early lead on the Zonda.After that the Murcielagos weight is out of the way and the full 580 bhp and shorter gear ratios can maintain its lead on the Zonda.Compare the fastest times recorded by both cars and the test results speak for themselves.

    Murcielago Zonda

    0-60: 3.5 3.6
    1/4 mile: 11.7 12.0
    top speed: 205.0-210.0 220.0

    The top speed of the Zonda is faster due to its longer gear ratios, but in accelaration below 150 mph, the Murcielago is faster.The Murcielago and the Zonda have almost the same handiling, but the Zonda is slightly better in on the track as the full potential fro the Murcielago is hard to btain on a track.Overall I would have to take the Murcielago over the Zonda.

    Sorry about the specs, the site messed it up when I uploaded.
     
  12. Re: Lamborghini Murcielago vs. Zonda C12-S

    The Zonda is faster, but the Lambo is a car with more balanced driving. I think that if i had the money to buy any of this two cars, i would prefer the Murcielago. And you?
     
  13. Re: Lamborghini Murcielago vs. Zonda C12-S

    hey man where did u get that cool video with the carerra gt drifting
    best motoring or somthin on kazaa?
     
  14. Re: Lamborghini Murcielago vs. Zonda C12-S

    You can get that video over at Racingflix.com It was a comparison between the Carrera GT, Ferrari Enzo and Lambo Gallardo. Unfortunately, it was in German. But hey, still get beatiful audible and visual entertainment.
     
  15. Re: Lamborghini Murcielago vs. Zonda C12-S

    I don't think it would be hard to get a Zonda serviced. Remember it has a Mercedes Benz engine and brembo breaks (not hard to find parts for these). It was designed to be very easy car to drive. It's not too loud under normal diving conditions, it has almost no engine vibration, it 6 disc cd, nav and a real working AC that’s not just wishful thinking. Both cars are awesome and I would be more than happy with either!
     
  16. Re: Lamborghini Murcielago vs. Zonda C12-S

    the zondas alot faster but id pic this cause its got more style
     
  17. Re: Lamborghini Murcielago vs. Zonda C12-S

    well guess what...Top Gear ran the Murcielago on the track again and this time it beat the Pagani!
     
  18. Re: Lamborghini Murcielago vs. Zonda C12-S

    Zonda rules
     

  19. Re: Lamborghini Murcielago vs. Zonda C12-S


    hahahaha... mopped the floor... are you serious... the Pagani rockets to 60 in 3.6... wow... um yeah, according to Motortrend.com in its videos it shows the Murcielago hauling major ass to 60 in a brisk 3.1 seconds... its in the video the announcer homie tells it all to you, yeah, so than 3.1, that rivals the McLaren even I think... so either the Top gear douches where drunk when driving or dont have a clue as to what they are doing. And another thing, this car is faster than 205, at the LA auto show, it claimed 215+, people need to get their facts straight. A holla to all my Lambo homies, yeah! I would take the Murcielago anyday, in nighthawk balck, over the pagani... PERIOD.
     
  20. Re: Lamborghini Murcielago vs. Zonda C12-S

    i would take both, but if i had to choose it would be the lambo
     
  21. Re: Lamborghini Murcielago vs. Zonda C12-S

    i would have to sat that i would rather cruise in the lambo and race in the zonda. the zonda is too ugly to cruise in. (my opinion)
     
  22. Re: Lamborghini Murcielago vs. Zonda C12-S

    if u guyz were talkin about the topgear video with the murc and the zonda, u could obviously see that clarkson didn't push it as much as he should have, he said something about frying the clutch plate, but ive seen a couple of videos where the rpm is very high when the driver lets go of the clutch in first gear, and it was like a f#$%ckn bullet. But still, i sadly have to say that the zonda still has better acceleration, but the murc could have kept up MUCH better in that topgear video. Still, the murc has much better handling, and i would take a lambo over that wierd car any day, basically just because its my favorite car, and i personally think its much better than the zonda...
     
  23. Re: Lamborghini Murcielago vs. Zonda C12-S

    This car would own the zonda at the track hands down. but i would take them both !
     
  24. lambo and zonda almost the same. Zonda has quicker acceleration, but lambo has better handling. In the 3 different track times ive seen, from top gear, and two other track times posted the lambo beat it but less than a second every time. So the lambo is better by performance, but you've still got to give zonda a hand.
