Every brand of high-end, super-luxury sports car always has its diehard advocates. A loyal fan base cannot be convinced that their favorite automobile is less capable than their rival. In this regard, Ferrari and Lamborghini are no different. One thing is for sure: both brands manufacture cars of the greatest beauty and the most superior performance.
Historically, one of Ferraris most popular models, the Testarossa, offered a 12-cylinder, mid-engine design. Its spectacular appearance was only rivaled by its performance characteristics. Anyone, not just a redhead, was sure to be noticed in this magnificent, wheeled beast. For pure power, torque and handling ability, this machine was unrivaled.
Another blast from the past is the similarly engineered Lamborghini Countach. Cabin-forward design coupled with a powerful mid-engine power plant, the Countach provided ample reason to exclaim at its beauty. Sleekly designed, its appearance benefited greatly from the addition of wheel spacers.
More recent developments in the product lines of these two companies are equally compelling. One of the latest production designs offered by Ferrari is the California. It is a 2+2 hard top convertible capable of the most spectacular performance. Top speed is 198 mph and 0-60 is accomplished in 3.4 seconds. The driver can even put the top up at the insane speed of 125 mph.
The Diablo, the Murcielago and the recently introduced Aventador are Lamborghinis latest and greatest designs. All provide the most exceptional driving experience. For instance, the Murcielagos V12 delivers 0-60 acceleration in a heart stopping 3.3 seconds.
