    Awesome car. We hooked up the VBOX to it, and it was recording 0-60 in 3.6sec, and 0-100 in 8.8sec. Lots of room for improvement as the car is brand new, less than 400 miles, full tank of gas. Temps today over 90 degrees.

    What I'd like to know is how it compared to the Veyron you test drove?

    No comparison. However, Jason Heffner has transformed approx 15 different Gallardos into 1000rwhp monsters. Im friends with several people who own these cars, and they have proven to be completely reliable, the 4wheel drivetrain able to take the abuse of hundreds of dragstrip passes, at the Car and Driver shootout, a low boost 750rwhp Gallardo was just as quick as a Veyron to 200mph.

    Needless to say Im sending a car off to Heffner to twin turbo asap!

    pretty sweet but ive heard that the extra bits you get on the superleggera dont justify the price over a regular one. and the new 560-4 is supposed to make it pretty obsolete

    I dont believe that to be true. The Superg's interior, which you wont get anywhere else inmo makes it worth the price. The new car will be more luxury oriented, while this is certainly more track oriented. Awesome car inmo, Ive driven every single Lambo known to man (except the Reventon) and the Superg was by far my favorite.

    ya sure? it's hard to judge intent sans reviews, but interior atleast is very superleggera-like.
    bro you've driven a fucking muira? :bowdown::bowdown::bowdown::bowdown::bowdown::bowdown::bowdown: how do you have these hookups?

    The interior of the Superleggera is full carbon fiber, nothing like the Lp560. As for hookups, well Ive bought and owned alot of cars. As for a Muira, yes Ive driven several of them. No doubt great in its time, but no longer for me. Put it in a museum and look at it. Even a Countach which I owned and drove for years is now a museum piece inmo, maybe to be taken out a driven occasionaly.

    :bowdown: Those cars are built a MILE from me. They rip down the closest highway frequently.

    I'm also curious as to how much the stock bottom end can take.
