Makes you wonder about Lambo's QC though, if it only lasted 20 minutes before breaking. They'll be giving Italian cars an entirely unjustified bad name.

Just as well it wasn't on Scottish roads in winter- with the stuff they spray on up here it would have rotted to dust in 15 minutes


Thanks again, Photobucket.

I'm pretty sure the mechanical QC would have been spot on, the organic driver behind the wheel however rolleyes

If only everything in life was as reliable as a Volkswagon.

It's quite ironic that Lamborghini is owned by the Volkswagen Group...

One does wonder just what possible failure would have any "Sensible" driver stopping their car in an active lane on a motorway. If the engine cut out you would coast the car onto the hard shoulder, same if you heard an odd noise. So what could cause someone to stop in such a position? My guess - pressing down the clutch pedal, on an Automatic laugh


Gone Audi mad!
