Hello Kin,
Lambo is such an interesting breed of cars and a lot of us are fascinated by them :-) I'd say, that my favorites are the Miura and the
Gallardo!
Cheers!

Kin said...

Hi Kin,
An interesting read and a nice collection of pictures, thanks for the good moment spent browsing through it! Two remarks though: first of all, the Vector portrayed here is a W8, which has nothing to do with Lamborghini, that's the later M12 which was powered by a Lamborghini engine; also, the Ferrucio Lamborghini-Enzo Ferrari discussion is probably more legend than actual facts, the same story is told about Winton and Cadillac... and a few others.

Kin said...

Hi Lorenzo,

I would like say many thank you 1st bacause of your valuable additional info.
Mybe you could share some of yours more refine & detail knowledge & info which i didn't know about Lamb.

I hope to see your visit more often & waiting for your priceless feedback anytime.

Thank you.

Kin.

Nicadraus' Lamborghini models said...

Hi Kin!

I'd just like to correct you on the Reventon.

The Reventon coupe was launched in 2007 and not 2010. While the Reventon Roadster was launched in 2009.

The new Aventador was launched in March 2011.

Kin said...

Hi Nicradaus ,

Thanks a lot for the feedback.I appreciate that.
