Every bit as perfect, just different! by Dan from Lambo Heaven on 12/01/2005. Trim: 2005 Lamborghini Murcielago Roadster, Owned less than 1 year.
Pros: The new styling is impressive. Putting an open top on it just adds to the excitement of unleashing this beast on the open road. The handling is improved with Audi stepping in and making it all wheel drive. It is now a car that could almost be a "daily driver" rather than a stationary show piece.
Cons: The drawback to Audi making this all wheel drive is that getting off the line is slower than it's two wheel drive supercar counterparts. Another one of my favorite things has been replaced by a smaller, yet functional piece. The spoiler. Even if not necessary, a spoiler makes a great visual addition to these types of cars. The small automatically controlled version just doesn't do it for me.
Overall review: Although the new era of Lambo is not what it used to be, it can be said that things have improved slightly. Actually, the only knock that I can think of is that the new owners, Audi, have taken away the two wheel drive option. The car may handle better, but it somewhat takes away the "supercar" label. This also hurts the "off the line" acceleration as you have to get the all wheel driver rolling before nailing the gas, otherwise you burn up the clutch. The body lines are astonishingly beautiful and flowing. Not like the raging bulls of the past with sharp, distinct corners. All in all, it is an improvement in practical use. However, some of the Raging Bull has been tamed in my eyes.
