I don't know how I feel about watching a bunch of rich towel heads racing their toys...the camera work does leave a lot to be desired.

The two wheel driving video is pretty impressive...I love how the other cars on the street are like following or going past like they see that every day.

I like how ricers pretend a car they just beat was "highly" modded. Beating a Lamborghini isn't very much impressive either since a Lambo is only a 13.8 second car

Huh?

2003 Lamborghini Murciélago

6.2L naturally aspirated V12
[email protected]
479 [email protected] rpm
0-60 = 3.8 seconds
1/4 mile = [email protected]

2000 Lamborghini Diablo VT

6.0L naturally aspirated V12
[email protected]
[email protected]
0-60 = 3.95 seconds
1/4 mile = [email protected]

Perhaps not the Murcielago, but I've seen Lamborghini's at the track doing 13's. I've seen a Countach do 15.8 and 2 Diablo SVs do mid 13's. I've seen plenty of Vipers do 12.5 with nothing, not even a K&N.

The car in the video is a Diablo VT, that ain't no 13 second car.

As for seeing Lamborghini's do 15s, I've seen Vipers pull off 15s, hell I've seen a car with enough power to blast 9s only pull a 12.8. Put someone in a car who has no idea what they are doing, or who is afraid to drive it, and you'll get the same shitty times.

Besides...Lamborghini's aren't made to run 1/4 mile races. Get in your Viper and try to pull on one (A VT or a Murci) from a 60mph roll. That Lambo will eat your lunch.

Yeah, the camera work sucked. I was hoping the Skyline vs. Lambo would be better.

What car are you calling rice? I sure hope it's not a Supra or a Skyline. Those are far from rice.

Yeah you'll find 80% of all the fast exotic cars are driven by yuppies who couldn't launch a Geo metro let alone a Viper, vett etc.
