Lambo driver needs to learn how to kick the rear out during tight maneuvers.

That said, I liked the ford fiesta vs corvette better.

I don't know, the fact that you can only get 2 mags in the glove compartment is a big turn off

What they didn't really tell you, is that was the Stig in the Fiesta, and James May in the Lambo.

I could safely say no cause the lambo won the drag race. With May driving it, the lambo would take 5 minutes to cross the finish line at a whopping 8mph.

I'm not sure if you missed the part where May drove that silly VW or not.

Well yeah, it's kind of hard to go slow in a 1000hp car, even for Captain Slow.

Types of women each car will get you

Fiesta > Annoying organic food eating PETA feminists...and their grandmothers.

Lambo> NFL cheerleaders, Hugh Hepher's Playmates and Charlie Sheen's groupies.

James has shown a few times that he can do quite well when going in a straight line, so its not out of the norm at all for him to have won a drag race, considering the vehicles in use.

Exocit sports car + Milk + Icecream = milkshake.

I have driven two seaters before and they suck as far as a good ride and they don't fit either. I have heard the Miata is much better but is that comparing to a Vette or a Chevelle?

SO: Any womah who wants a ride in a lambo only wants the money not the ride.
