    Lamborghinis latest car is really awesome...And looks a lot like a JET !!!!
    Powered by a 6.5-litre V12 with 471kW of power and 660Nm of torque it accelerates from 0-100 km/h in just 3.4 seconds using an all-wheel-drive system.

    the design is nice. a good mix between the smooth and strong murcielago and the edgy and technical Gallardo. Just the Headlights are a bit ferarri-ish.

    Where, besides a top speed racing ring, are you able to drive even 180mph?

    Pshtt....I'd take a Dodge Viper or Corvette Z06...get new cams, new spark plugs, get a better intake/exhust, then triple turbo it...of course probably means I'd need another radiator...oh and throw in an intercooler. Now....someone explain to me what I just said....cause all I know is more turbos increases air (well don't need to explain the turbos), but why do new cams and an intercooler boost hp? I'm pretty noobish when it comes to cars...next school break my goal is to learn enough to tune a car.

    Great examples. every 10.000km you need a new gearbox for both of them.

    Who cares....if you can afford it, you can afford the gearboxes. It's like saying....well I'm going to buy a Z06....but where am I going to get the money for gas and insurance?

    well ...a turbo is like ... check howstuff works .. what it does is use teh wasted exhuast energy to ram more air into teh car ... you'd need an intercooler ... u wouldnt necessarly need new camscolder plugs and different exhaust would eb needed, uprate the radiator. my idea of teh ideal car is a 335i or an Evo or a Sc300 or an M3 ...

    Yeahh understand the reasoning behind a turbo cause the exhust spins a fan thingy which spins a compressor....sorta something like that. Why would you need the intercooler though?

    because of the gas law, compressing air makes it hotter .. plus a little leakage from the hot side of the turbo

    Ohh and I'm guessing it's a good thing to keep the air going into the engine cool?

    I severely doubt that the greatest road going vehicle ever created has a gearbox that weak :slap:
