A few years ago, the otherwise peaceful small town of Sant'Agata Bolognese in Italy confronted itself with a very consuming issue. People couldn't sleep anymore because of all the agitation caused by Lamborghini employees. The men and women working for Lambo didn't want to disturb the civilians on purpose, but they just couldn't help themselves. Whenever the working hours were over, they went home, but the moment they came in the door, they just felt an uncontrollable energy that they didn't know what to do with.

So let's see if we got things straight. They took the Gallardo, converted it into a racer and then they've turned the motorsport version back into a street car. This doesn't seem to make sense. Then again, Lamborghini doesn't sell cars because its creations make sense.Continue reading
