    A lad i know was supposed to be getting a Gallardo this yr. His dad has now decided to give him his 99T Diablo instead.

    I don't think he'll miss it tho. He's still got a Zonda, 612bhp Gemballa 911, Hummer 2 & has also just bought a RR Phantom & something else, can't remember what tho

    The Gallardo is still on the cards for him tho, he just has to use the Diablo for a bit. Oh & he also has a 40k 300C. BTW he's only 23

    Hmmm, you can get those things anywhere though and most of the country is far from picturesque. I think it's pretty rubbish tbh :[ Mainly just due to getting constantly ripped off on various taxes ;*(

    Anyway wp on the Gallardo, got any pics? :D

    i dont doubt that you could do it, on a long, flat, straight, clear road it would eventually get there (although in saying that, i thought the gallardo wasnt quite in the 200+club??)

    Ive done, and been in enough, stupid top speed driving situations to know that any sort of corner is a no no, and if there is traffic about then getting to the cars terminal speed just aint happening as you need to be flat for some while.

    get some pics up! (of the car i mean, not the speedo, we know where that went the last time some idiot did that)

    This is pissing me off a bit now the corner in the video is just a small sweep i was coming from about 3 miles away and flat out. The Gallardo can do 197 according to the book so obviously you have to allow for the fact the speedo will be out slightly.
