  1. Cool, but i think Lambo should stick w/ phat cars instead of pha

    It's a cool car, but they make alot better sports cars.
     
  2. Ummm, you DO know that this company started as a tractor manufacturer
    hmmmmmmm?<!-- Signature -->
     
  3. Not an Origonal Company. It was The late Mr. Lamborghini that owned a Tractor Shop. He also Owned a Ferrari. He complained to Enzo who lived down the Road, about the gearbox. Enzo told him "Go work on your tractors old man" And look now, Ferrari is beat by Lamborghini. <!-- Signature -->

  6. I never knew that
    cool
     
  7. I wonder if he started his own car company to show Enzo how its done <A BORDER="0" HREF="http://www.supercars.net/emoticons.html"><IMG BORDER="0" SRC="http://speed.supercars.net/cboardhtml/emoticons/smile.gif"></A>
     
  8. He did, as a matter of fact, he embarassed Enzo by having the first traverse engine car, and showing it off at an auto show to!
     
  9. ferrari is still a better car then lambo they make more cars and most have better speeds and looks lambo's sign is a bull just like the things that there tracktors saw ferrari has horse which stands for horsepower which it has the most of
     
  10. That's you opinion and yes, it is valid, however ferrari doesn't "always" have more power. And now that Lambo in going to run the Gallardo alongside the Murcielago, things could change.
     
  11. Actually that's half true. To make a long story short, One day Ferrucio Lamborghini went to the Ferrari factory to show Mr. Enzo Ferrari some plans he had for a sports car and Ferrari said "I do not have time for silly things like this, go back to youre little tractor factory and build your own sportscar." And that's exactly what he did. That's why Ferrari and Lamborghini are arch enemies, sort of like Ford and Chevy in the US. Anyone who owns a Ferrari or Lamborghini should stay loyal to that brand. Im sick and tired of people saying they own a Ferrari and Lamborghini. That is oxymoron and they just want either of those cars for self gratification and to show off. Most people who own Ferraris or Lamborghinis have no clue about the history of the companies and why the cars are they way they are. They just want them to look cool.

    Does anyone know why the Lamborghini logo is a raging bull and the Ferrari logo is a prancing horse? If anyone cares I will be more than happy to tell you.
     
  12. how bout you tell us?


     
  13. Well I guess since I found someone who is just guessing about the brands, I better answer my previous post about the logos. Ferrucio Lamborghini was born under the Zodiac sign of Taurus. He was facinated by bull fighting and wanted to reflect that in all the cars he made. Every Lamborghini model is named after something to do with bulls or bullfighting (i.e. the Diablo was named after a famous bull raised by El Chicuirro, probebly not spelled right, the Miura is named after a breed of bull, the name Countach is loosly translated in Italian for "Holy Cow", the name Murciealago is named after a famous fighting bull whose life was spared because he fought with sucn strength and stamina (which is what the name is supposed to relfect on the car). And the new Gallardo (pronunced Gay-ar-do, I laughed too a little) is named after another breed of fighting bull. The logo is also like this in response to Ferrari's prancing horse. It shows the bull (which symbolizes the car) full of power and vitality, which is supposed to suggest a completely new direction away from the gracefullness of the prancing horse.

    Now the Ferrari prancing horse came from an Italian fighter pilot in WW1. At that time Enzo was working for Alfa Romeo and developed a grand prix car which the pilot's son won a race with. The pilot was so happy with his son's victroy, that he presented Mr. Ferrari with his family coat of arms he had displayed on the side of his fighter plane. The pilot was one of Italy's best. He had shot dowm 27 enemiy planes in his time in battle and was one of the most highly respected. Mr Ferrari could not turn down the offer of having the most highly regarded pilot in the Italian air force rewading him like that so he took the offer to use the symbol on his cars. And what was the symbol, a yellow shield with a prancing horse...

    I hope that clears it up.

  16. LM002 was an offroad vehicle originaly planned for use in the Italian military. The L stands for Lamborghini and the M stands for Mobili I think. The 002 has something to do with the engine and drivetrain. True this wasn't named after a bull but its not a sports car is it?
     
  17. Accually i think this car is the coolest
     
  18. I disagree with you, you say people who own both Ferrari and Lamborghini cars are morons, and that "they just want either of those cars for self gratification and to show off".. Uhm..

    You know, there are rich car lovers who collect alot of different exotics like Ferraris and Lamborghinis, and some of these rich people might use the cars as a pleasure machine. Because they ARE pleasure machines in fact, I'd love to take a Ferrari, a Lamborghini, and a couple other sweet cars, to a race track and race a weekend or why not a a whole week :)

    But you're right, there are ALOT of rich pricks who buy these sweet cars to look cool cruising down the street. But there are people who love cars for their performance and USE them the right way = drive it hard, and enjoy the ride.
     
  19. didnt no that but i gess lambo has come a long way!
     
  20. that was... fun...
