Lamborghini Gallardo Hybrid

It's slated for introduction in the 2015 model year. Sometimes the wife asks if I have a five-year plan. Now I have an answer for her.

Now all I have to do is keep my Saturn Ion running until then. Here's the object of my lust.

Saw an interview last week with the Only man in America who is Authorized to test drive each Lamborghini as it arrives. It is his job to test drive each car and make sure that everything works as it is supposed to before it is delivered to the dealer. He is also the man who must accompany anyone who is test driving the car for purchase. Not very talkative, but interesting nonetheless. He then let a lady reporter take the Gallardo that he had brought to the studio for a test drive!

Not to be picky, but the pronunciation is wrong. The "ll" in Italian and Spanish sounds like a "y". So it should sound like "Ga-iar-do" instead of "Galardo".

When you have your Lambo, you can impress chicks even further with bein the only American who know how to pronunciate the name of his car right :)

RPJ -- thank you! That is going to come in so handy some day.

BTW, I also read that a guy in Oregon made the company take back his Gallardo and give him a full refund under the state's "lemon" law. Seems they couldn't stop the brakes from squeaking.
