I may have had just a lot less experience here - but that's BS from my limited experience.

Every time I've been in a TR it has REALLY felt it's size, that car does not shrink!

I've spent a lot of time in Gallardo's which are on par size and *feel* wise to a TR, but the Gallardo is a car that really shrinks on a hard drive - in fact I think it should be mandatory for everyone to experience one to feel just how small a big fat car can actually feel.

i thought a gallardo was significantly smaller than a tr

anyone got the specs?

No hard time in a G... hope to put that right with brand new GT3 version arriving imminently! :thumbsup:

PURE.  SPACESHIP.

You'll love how it gives amazing feedback and just loves to eat the tarmac and makes you feel like you're cuddling the corner...  but you'll hate the "aloofness", like you're just sitting back and relaxing... I mean, when you realise the windscreen starts a good foot in front of where your feet are you start to consider the design...

I don't know how many people have in a hard driving situation gone directly from a Lotus Elise to a Lamborghini Gallardo and back again, but it's a real eye opener... :eek:

One of my fave all time road tests is in a Countach.... luvly jubbly! If a Boxer could be made to handle like a Countach, I'd NEVER had sold mine...

I'll never get over how good the one Countach I've ever been in handled.... I can't say for sure that this car was indicative of the entire model range as I've only experienced the one, but it's pretty much the best handling AND ride car I've ever been in - no matter of time and space.  Consider the fact I just got out of an almost brand new Gallardo SE at the time...

Did some spirited driving in the M6 cabriolet at night.... the steering headlamps are MEGA! They really help you make the turn.

The brakes however...




















were INCREDIBLE!

Those single piston floaters just BITE!
