    OH NO ITS AN ENZO! <A BORDER="0" HREF="http://www.supercars.net/PitLane?displayFAQ=y"><IMG BORDER="0" SRC="pitlane/emoticons/amazed.gif"></A>

    lol, great showing by both cars. I think an LP570 would be a bit quicker still mainly because the LP550s come fully loaded from what I know.

    Im very impressed by the LP550. Its not lighter than a 458, its got less gears, its doesnt have the dual clutch. admittedly as Ive been saying the LP Gallardos are underrated in power (even though some DONT BELIEVE ME for whatever reason).
  2. Love both those so much
  3. wow good racing. both were about even in acceleration.
  4. lambo jumped the start a bit. Anyway they're very close.
  5. does this mean ferrari ringers? cos on paper the 458 should slaughter any gallardo.
  7. 458 CS/Scuderia/? will be epic
  8. it looks like whoever got the jump in the races kept that lead.

    we have seen ringers from many companies (the worst example of which would be Mercedes Benz sending an SL55 with an SLR engine to a 0-300 AMS test). all this means is that people should look a bit past the numbers.
  9. the ferrari is the better car.
  10. It's also the ugliest.
  11. balboni by a mile.
  12. Why are you always wrong?
  13. That front will never be good looking. With those terrible headlights and those very awful holes next to them. WTF where they thinking.
  14. You're entitled to your opinion, even though it's terrible, and you know #$%# all.
  15. the ferrari is the technically better car. more advanced for sure. perhaps to the point where you could say its the more german car.

    Id rather walk into my garage and see the LP regardless.
  16. ...or that Lp550 has some upgrades...?
    about 458, the 1st test (quattroruote*) says us 0-200 9.7s, and the 2nd (AMuS) 0-200 10.3s and 0-300 32.4s: LP550 is surely slower.
    we must wait a direct comparo
    (*) rumor says 590hp
  17. I remeber: 0-300 better than a Murciélago!
    or C&D Sl600 1/4 mile 11.6s and 0-60 3.6s <A BORDER="0" HREF="http://www.supercars.net/PitLane?displayFAQ=y"><IMG BORDER="0" SRC="pitlane/emoticons/amazed.gif"></A>
    or ford GT 0-300: a unit does 34s, another unit 55s <A BORDER="0" HREF="http://www.supercars.net/PitLane?displayFAQ=y"><IMG BORDER="0" SRC="pitlane/emoticons/amazed.gif"></A>
    other ex.
    599 GTB: 1st 0-300 ( rumor says about 655hp) 29.9s, 2nd 35s
    997 PDK: 545hp, +9%
    LP640: 0-200 from 10.2s to 12.0s
    these latest supercars, with their very efficient gearboxes and diffs, few hp give a great difference
  18. no if the LP was modded they usually state the mods in their videos.

    from a roll, the LP550 is not slower. the video showed just that. from a dig it may or may not be slower depending on how well they are launched.
  20. no, from the video that LP550 is not slower. What they are saying on paper, it should be much slower. So either the 458 press cars were mega ringers and customer cars are much slower, or that LP550 has some tuning, or that 458 was a shitty example.
  21. europeans and their silly drag racing.
