Burnt Orange Lamborghini

Yesterday, while leaving a meeting in Arrowhead Park, I saw a burnt orange Lamborghini and all I could think of was "what an awful color on a great car".

So I wonder ('cause that's all I do):

What car that has come out in the last 10 years is your favorite? Money is no limit.

Ferrari 458 Italia. I drove one in Florida. Absolutely amazing.
MSRP $295,000

I also drove a Lamborghini Gallardo LP570-4 Superleggera.
MSRP $243,000 Nice car, but I'd definitely pay the extra $52,000 for the Ferrari.

Next time I go down there I want to drive a Ferrari 430 Scuderia to see how it compares to the 458 Italia.

I'd go for the Bugatti Veyron EB 16.4. A W-16 engine producing 1001hp and a top speed over 267mph along with it's $2.4 million price tag would be a lot of fun on the Autobahn...

Lol dukes of hazard did more to make that model car popular than anything else and did their utmost to destroy just about every one ever made too.

I think I saw it in Maumee today. Wasn't burnt orange though. That would have been a step up from this flat straight orange.
It made the car look dated in a bad way.

Nice JeepMaker. Awesome car.

The video reminds me of Ricky Bobby asking what he is supposed to do with his hands during his first interview. :)
