Car Watching - Lamborghini Murcielago LP 640 Roadster
It's not often that one gets to see a Lamborghini automobile in the flesh. But on a recent trip to an upscale auto body establishment, there it was. A Murcielago. And, it was a roadster, which is more rare. Pity that the top was up, because it looks like a hastily laid blanket atop a rocket ship.
This incredible piece of ego-enhancing metal is not to be trifled with. A V12 of muscle car size, 6.5 liters (a convenient 396 cubic inches!) sits behind the driver and blasts up to 210 miles per hour. I mean, Batman drove one in The Dark Knight, although it was a hard top.
I wanted to take more photos, but sometimes it's best to cut and run before someone asks you what the hell you're doing near the Lamborghini.
