Summary:

The bull is finally tamed

Faults:

One heated cup holder fails to heat, hardly a problem and I don't really need it.

Passenger side air vent does not shut off fully. Again not really a problem, but can be annoying for the passenger.

General Comments:

This is the easiest Lamborghini to drive to date. The steering is light and precise, too light really the car feels almost twitchy. I sneezed on the motorway when bringing her home and I had changed lanes! Build quality is now very good. Nothing has fallen off, shaken off, split, cracked or teared yet. My diablo's mirror fell out bringing that home! Well done Audi for making a supercar into a usable car. Still not as practical as a Porsche 911 series, but then again I use a Mercedes as a daily car and the Murc is just a toy really. You will see me and the car at supercar sunday this year if I can make it. I will be doing ride outs in the car for charity so come and donate to the kids hospital and have the ride of your life too!

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

Cor, is everyone as impressed by this bloke as I am?

As the old saying goes: smoke 'em if you got 'em. Hey, if I had a Lambo I might never find a reason to be unhappy again.

Though I probably would.

The best advice that I can give to a super-car driver is 'Drive it like it's stolen!'

Summary:

Hardly a bargain, in fact a long way from it, but owners are aware of this at the point of purchase

Faults:

Nothing major has gone wrong with this car - but to be honest I am probably not going to drive a high enough mileage in it for anything major to develop.

The rear spoiler remained in the up position in the first week, but this was very quickly fixed by the dealer.

General Comments:

As they say here in the UK - it does what it says on the tin!

There is no question that the Murcielago is quick and that it handles superbly. However, I am slightly worried that the clutch is fragile as it feels too light for nearly 600bhp. Therefore it becomes easy to stall as you tend to creep forward on engine revs only letting the clutch out without using any gas in an effort to save the clutch!

It would take a complete fool to lose control of this car as it sticks to the road like a barnacle!

The major drawback of ownership in Europe is the width of the car, you have to seriously think about where exactly you are going to drive it as it would be very easy to get it stuck in some medieval town or country road. Certainly meeting traffic coming towards you on narrow roads is heart-stopping.

It is essentially like owning a piece of art - it looks absolutely stunning from any angle and drives with passion. Many high performance cars separate the driver from the engine and you don't really feel you're driving something special unless you check the speedo - the Lamborghini is an event to drive at any speed.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Don't Know

There are seven (7) reviews on Murcielago's already. The odds are that most if not ALL of these are fake. This review at least sounds semi plausible though it gives little detail which can confirm ownership.

How do we separate the wheat from the Chaff? At least if it sounds fake, you know that you can disregard it.

Please don't post fake reviews unless it is witty and obvious.
