and tr 3" wider.

thought so.



yeah, in the UK... Trucks are anything over 6ft 6"... you have to watch out for max width restrictions at MANY old english villages etc...

I've repared more rear wheels/wheel arches on TR family than any other body damage repair... It's 'cos of the illusion they give... front end is kinda "normal" width... rear end is HUGE!

When doing motorway road repairs, the "fast" lane is restricted to nothing over 6ft 6... TR is JUST safe.. but you gotta drive it right!

Yeah - like I said, the TR DOES NOT get any skinnyer in driving, the G is just a steak thinner but on the road they feel not much bigger than a Corolla.  You can't say that about a TR.

I still disagree...

the TR makes you forget about how big it's arse is....

every time you glance in the mirror, you get a rude shock! (insert predicta gag here)

Ok - well I'll wait till I get a go in a 512TR before a full opinion.

All I can say from Goob's TR(ossa) is that no matter how fast we went or whatever we did in that car, it was still love making by the fire fat!!!

I can't comment on a Testa or TR but the Gallardo does feel somewhat wider than a Corolla!  But the main thing that makes it a challenge in the tight stuff is the A pillar right in the line of sight.

If you think at TR is wide, try a Murcielago.  I haven't got the dimensions handy but it is a big mother to thread through traffic.  And the LP640 is very low at the front.  :eek:

BTW, 3 days in London and I haven't seen a Lambo on the road yet.  Here's a Ferrari taken from my hotel window in Mayfair.

Yes, it stays fat at all times...

just doesn't "feel" it until you look in the mirrors!

Haven't you left the hotel yet?  :D

I'm very surprised, London is full of insane cars and it's almost summer so the rich oil guys from the UAE should be up there by now...  :?
