2009 Lamborghini Gallardo LP560-4 Part ][

No matter where I went, people always asked me the same question. It wasn't "How fast does it go?" but "How much does it cost?" At which point I asked the person how much did they think it cost. They usually guessed between $150,000 to $200,000 dollars. Everyone was shocked when I said $340,000 dollars, not including taxes. Seriously, the only cars that cost more than this are the Mercedes CL65 Black Edition, which costs about $440,000 dollars and has about 660+ bhp!
I really like the flappy paddle gearbox controls which are mounted on the steering wheel. It makes gear changes effortless and instantaneous. Not to mention the tremendous braking power, the ceramic breaks are out of this world. I swear this car can pull over 1g of force in tight circles no problem. Without launch control, this car would end up in the ditch. Absolutely no one challenged me at the lights. No one. Although I had a funny moment at one point going through the Tim Hortons drive through. I found that most of the guys hanging around the lot would encourage me to rev the engine up. Not one willing to dissapoint, I accidentally performed an all wheel burnout and almost slid into the drive thru speaker box.  Sweat dripping off my forhead, I meekly crawled the car through to the server. Another problem - there's not much room to put the drinks anywhere. And the GPS unit didn't really know where the hell I was.
