Murcielago SV in white, it combines the boyhood awe of the Countache with a modernized approach and a dash of pure evil. If I had to eat only Ramen for the rest of my life to have one, I would (probably).


Just moved to Phoenix, anyone else here?

For as aggressive, mean, sexy and hot as the Murci's front looks, don't you think the back looks equally as..........er...........hideous?

Lambo's are crazy and mean looking, not beautiful.
