Car Watching: Lamborghini Murcielago

 While I was in the rest room today around dinner time, I received a text message from the Angry Asian about a Lamborghini in the parking lot.  I had to hurry out to see what the fuss was about.  There, parked across two parking spaces, was a Murcielago.
 These cars are very rare, as only 4099 of them were made in nearly a ten year production run.  In typical Lamborghini fashion, the size and scope of the Murcielago can only be appreciated in person.  In this photo, Chris Ploch's car is parked behind it for reference.  It's a Dodge Caliber, which the Angry Asian likened to a booger.  The Caliber is more than a foot taller than the Murcielago.
The rear view is perhaps the most striking.  The clear slats show the engine underneath, a V12 of between 570 and 670 horsepower.  If you right click the photos, the last one is enormous and shows a lot of detail.
