How far can stylists take the Origami School of Predicable Car Design? Surely a dead end ...?

I think it's probably one of the best looking super cars for a long time. Those clean lines and fantastic profile. Lovely all together. It's also great to see the Gallardo become a huge success for Lamborghini and the company lose some of its second fiddle status to Ferrari (in terms of sales). I'd buy one tomorrow if it were possible!

Go Lambo....

Lambo, the ones you built to replace others that caught fire don't count... ;-)

How many of these were actually built at Neckarsulm? There was a strong rumour that a lot of Gallardos were built by Audi while Sant'Agata was being brought up to German quality standards...

Blimey this is a milestone I bet Lambo never dreamt they would achieve. Question is has Audi ownership taken away some of the classic Italian feel...... I don't know but maybe someone who has owned or knows someone who owns a Lambo can comment.

[quote Lesia44]The revised styling is absolutely stunning. The very definition of what a supercar should look like.[/quote]It would be boring if all supercars looked like the Lambo just because somebody considered it stunning - "the very definition of what a supercar should look like." Therefore, what constitutes your definition of stunning that allows for diversity?

True, but it is stunning and it is the perfect definition of a 21st century Lamborghini. A fusion of their unique single-arc design with modern technology and decent quality/reliability.

I am glad that Lamborghini are thriving. As to Jon's question about whether they have lost their unique feeling now that they are owned by Audi - i don't know, i guess they have probably lost something, but they have also lost a lot of problems and unreliability as well, so the net result is a vast improvement.

For me the Balboni was my ideal Gallardo - RWD and light with Balboni's personalisation to make it a more personal car. Wasn't sure about the striping, but it was distinctive and different and done very well. Good on Lamborghini/Audi for allowing it to exist.

[quote disco.stu]True, but it is stunning and it is the perfect definition of a 21st century Lamborghini. [/quote]Fine, but I asked by what definition it is stunning. After all, Origami draws on hard angles to achieve its aims and there's only so much one can do with triangles before hitting repetition ...
