Yesterday, I was walking past the Lamborghini dealer in London, and I realised I had never liked a Lamborghini except for the Miura, and that was all. All my life, I never desired any of their cars. They are simply too loud, extremely impractical, no racing heritage, too much bling – and the list goes on.
Even though I am not a fan of Ferraris, I still really admire the technology transferred from Formula 1 to road cars. Ferrari isn’t a brand I would like to drive, but I like their cars. On the other hand, Lamborghini cars have one function, namely: making too much noise and annoying everyone around you.
I am sure they accelerate quickly and handle great (thanks to lower central gravity) but other than that, a Lamborghini usually has the previous generation Audi interior (Gallardo) and doesn’t feel as unique as a Ferrari.
I probably have this feeling due to Lamborghini’s actual business heritage – in agriculture. When I found out at the age of 11 (1992) that Lamborghini was not originally a car company, I was extremely shocked! I guess that moment created a new neural pathway that prevented me from liking the Lamborghini, and as they produced ever louder and blingier cars, things did not go well.
