    zzboba, how does it compare to your 430 in performance? If we only looked at numbers, it's supposed to only be as fast as the 430. Did it feel faster?


    the lp640 claims 0 to 100 in 3.4sec ,how is that close to f430?

    Subjective the LP640 feels faster! But i don't trust my feelings, because...

    a) the LP640 is so low, it feels like high speed even if you are just cruising

    b) the F430 gets very loud when accelerating hard which gives a "stressed" impression, as if the car is trying hard -- while the not-so-noisy LP640 comes up with speed just like that...


    Before i took the LP640 for a spin, I thought that the engine is a torque-monster at any rev. But it isn't, it feels very similar to the F430's engine, the real "kick in the back" starts at 5000-6000 revs and it goes up to nearly 8500.



    Interesting. I'd expect such a big engine to really pull from even low revs, but this obviously isn't the case. Not really impressive for 6,5 liters...

    Well, it's a sport engine, lusting for revs. Which is cool, especially for a big V12. But having in mind that according to the specs, the engine develops 660 Nm from 3000 RPM, i do share your opinion.

    But it's very impressive what's going on from 5000 RPM onwards. And at about 7000 the car even seems to get a slight extra kick.

    Re: LP640 Test Drive

    Awesome car.... I hardly noticed your car in those pics .... All I saw was that looooow, wiiiiide black machine . Suprised to hear that the F430 is louder though. Makes me think how loud the Stradale's gonna be

    That's the way you got these testdrives?
    Are you on the next edition of RTL's car soap?

    No seriously, thanks for the report. Quite surprised with your report, it seems as if Lamborghini and Audi cannot find a common denominator on the car's character. What will be even more interesting is its successor's character...

    Dimitri, according to thge AMS (or was it SA) test, it only did it in 3,9 seconds. I know, bench racing, but this is no faster than a 430.

    Must've been cool seeing zzboba in a skirt and high-heels at 300 km/h, though .

    No doubt, a CGT test drive in the wet with traction control turned off.
