Just to throw something else into the mix Adrian what about the Audi R8?

 

 

 

 

If I was earning enough that's a car I'd love to own one day. ;)

Over £80k for any decent v10. It's extortionate for an Audi...

 

For that I can get a 2015 GTR and make it a stage 4, still have pocket change on a 700bhp car :lol:

After you've been exploring the capabilities of a GTR and consider the low cost in comparison with other supercars, it's very, very difficult to go back to something else :cry: :cry:

 

After going to the Ring with Bennett this weekend, I can confirm nothing can come close to this car. The GTR is in a league of its own!

Talking about the OP - Are we expecting a RHD version of one of these soon? There seem to be quite a lot of rumours on the web but I can't find anything concrete.

What about the 4.2Ltr V8's then?

 

They're about half of that, ...or are you leaning more towards a GTR again the more you think about it?! :surrender:;) ;)

Yes, by the way it looks now it's going to be a 2013-2014 GTR, under 10k miles, 1 owner.

 

However, I'm viewing another Gallardo tomorrow :cry:

Ooohh love a good test drive. :drive1

 

 

If I'd already owned a GTR like you have then I may be more inclined to try to get the Lambo just for something different but then having owned a GTR I'm sure you're well aware of how capable they are so maybe even more inclined to get another GTR knowing what a supercar slayer it really is.

 

 

Good luck with your decision, ...Lambo Gallardo or Nissan R35 GTR, hhhmmm which one?! :shrug: ....first world problems aye Adrian. :lol:;):D

Soooooooo, today I've seen this. Is not perfect, but a lot of positives. Awaiting some news from the garage that has been servicing the car for many, many years.

Engine sounds sweet. Small cosmetic problems, but these can ben fixed in time, full respray, full interior re-trim in factory style for a fresh look.

 

The sound of the V10... OMFG. :cloud9:

^^ Loving that Adrian. :cloud9:

 

The colour is not really something I'd ever choose for a car but it really works on supercars like the Lambo. B)

It looks much better in flash, would look even better if I do the restoration :D

 

This is the colour:

 

http://www.lambocars...o/0/gall89.html

Don't get me wrong, I do like the colour. :)

 

When I say "it's not a colour I'd ever choose for a car" that's because the cars I'm buying aren't supercars unfortunately, ...don't think the colour would work too well on your more average performance cars.

 

Suits the Lambo though nicely. B);)

These sound lovely, had one on the trackday at Goodwood. However I test drove one a little while ago to see if I would prefer it to the GTR and well surprisingly disappointing. It was the v10, cant remember which flappy paddle system it was but the gear changes were not great, the interior seemed very generic Audi and the thing had utterly NO space to go anywhere. I also think that the R8 is too similar to the GTR (IE. AWD type of system, flappy paddles, etc) and my my old GTR was a better drive.

 

A couple months back, I tested the N430 Aston Martin and that I really liked. Manual, v8, not trying to be stupidly fast, but handles superbly thanks to bonded chassis and engine being set mostly behind the front struts (near perfect weight distribution). Oh yes and it comes with a boot. I think its different enough that it cant really be compared to the GTR (IE. RWD, NA, manual). However, the Vantage replacement is supposed to be on its way and I am waiting for that to be released :dry:

 

The boot/storage space is very important as Mel and I tend to do a lot of trips over to Europe (1-4 weeks) and anyone that has traveled with a woman will immediately realise that backpack sized storage (R8, Lambo, Porsche, etc) is just not good enough.
