In my opinion, it seems like EDO has completely changed the Gallardo's appearance and made it look a bit like the Bertone Mantide.

Entirely nothing to do with that, are there any vacancies at Autocar?

What an awesome car. BSM should have these for their new learner fleet.

I expect you would only get this tune up if your friend also had the same car as you and you want to suddenly outpace him on the next track day you go on together. You would be laughing inside your Lambo, and the friend in the trailing Lambo would be furious and go and buy something else.

Re: Spell-check

My theory is that these items are created by robots, they are programmed to make "human errors" in the text to avoid be detected as a machine. The errors use a random algorithm so each robot news item for each magazine company is slightly different.

Only it's a work in progress, as these mistakes are so outrageous and noticeable they don't seem human at all. Definitely robots!

A bit OTT don't you think?, considering it's really as close to the ultimate road tool anyway,or is it a rwo fingered gesture to Ferrari?

What is it with Autocar and these ridiculous Edo vandalisms? The outrageous power and performance claims are reported at face value as true (where does all this extra power come from?) and without qualification (what does it cost?)

Autocar has promoted so many of their creations as "Latest News" items. Has anyone at Autocar ever seen one of them, let alone driven one? Lazy and weak journalism. Or advertising dressed up as journalism.

Yawning,

eseaton.... your point is?....

Look it just just life... Everybody expects the same of journos as politicians.

So why fight a non-malignant reality?

Grow up and get a life.

Not one of you pommy dudes asked the question in the ZR-1 Corvette vs Lamborghini Murcielago "merry-go-round on a track with no room to pass" comedy/ debacle/ article,

"why were the relative positions not reversed in a back-up run?"

Could it have been that the ZR-1 with 27% more peak torque

(835 Nm at only 3350 RPM vs 660 Nm at 6500 RPM)

(90% of it developed between 2600 rpm and 6000)

and 100lb less weight than the Murcielago would have left it for dead?

Consider the following. Could it be that such a back up run was in fact undertaken and there was no need to argue about blocking, overtaking and room - that torque unlimited did the talking, together with 1.1 lateral G skidpad capabilty and that the ZR-1 romped away?

Now, I'm hep to the ability of 4WD; I drive an Evo X with SAWC which pulls over 1.0 lateral G on a skidpad and 1.6 on a racetrack, but the way that the ZR-1 was crowding the rear of that Murcielago and had to brake after closing in on it has me wondering so much...

Did Lamborghini put the Kybosh on reporting / publicising a reversed position run because of an unfavourable result? Did Autocar "journos", not wanting to miss out on any Lamborghini joyrides and/or limit the range of their vehicle product tests, cave in to such pressure.....?

Anyway whore cares. The 2011 Murcielago replacement is expected to have 700 Horsepower, and the "latest news" will roll out and onward...

It's part of the game of oneupmanship, between manufacturers who produce their teams of gladiators, with the motoring journalists as happy little symbiotic parasites who benefit the manufacturers with publicity, kudos and advertising and we the consuming voyeurs are the crowd in the coliseum.... and some of us actually buy a gladiator from a winning team.

It's just life. You won't change a thing.....

so just observe,understand, and enjoy.

    The Volvo V90 is a big estate ploughing its own furrow. We’re about to see if it is refreshing or misguided

    Handsome entrant into the bulging small crossover market has a strong engine and agile handling, but isn’t as comfortable or complete as rivals

    The Citroen C3 Aircross has got funky looks and a charming interior, but it's another small SUV, and another dynamic miss. Numb steering is just one thing keeping it from class best

    Diesel version of Skoda’s junior SUV is unobtrusive and undemanding, but we’d still go for the silkier petrol version of the Karoq
