Roadster all the way. But if you are comparing them, you should use a tintop from the same year as the roadster. The 6.0 was very diluted IMO.

In real life, standing next to each other, the Murcie overshadows the 6.0 but a Roadster overshadows the Murcie.

chalk and fucking cheese . on the diablo , over 5 ft 6 tall , forget it . seat was too small , my arse sat on top of it , not in it . knees were bent up between the wheel , indicator stork touched my left knee when i wanted to indicate . steering wheel didn't have the adjustment up or down , only in or out . car wasn't quick , gearbox clunky . the murcie is a breeze to drive as a daily . the diablo is what a lambo should be like , but if it still was , then wouldn't sell any murcies or g's.

You must have driven a dud 6.0 You sound like you are describing a Countach.

Also (in the words of Ray Hunter - Lambo salesman), the Murcie has as much driver's involvement as a Datsun 120Y, while a Diablo is still a driver's car.

I've driven a Murcie (left me cold), Diablo SV, VT and Roadster, and a 25th Anny Countach. Actually, I tried to drive the Countach - couldnt' fit in the seat and the clutch and gear change was a huge strength challenge even for me. And that was on an almost new car.

Diablo's always bring a huge grin on my face when I drive them.

Never driven a Gallardo.

Sounds like Ray isn't a very good Lambo salesman to me.  120Y?  Come on!

LOL He meant that is as easy to drive - no challenge for a driver.

OK, that makes more sense.  He'd probably liken the Gallardo to a Corolla, mind you.   :p

i have driven the 430 and gallardo from melb to bris non stop . felt good after both trips . IMHO if i had to drive the diablo longer than 30 minutes straight , i would rather chew my arm off .

Like I said, you must have driven a dud. In my VT I used to find 3hours+ country trips very comfortable as well as 1 hour peak hour traffic drives.

The Mondial and the 355 that I had, I couldn't handle longer drives in them as my back would hurt in the seats. Same when I was passenger for a long trip in a 360. I have no idea what the 430 seats are like as I never sat in one of them. Same with the G.

The humble Renault Fuego is an incredibly comfortable car for me.... and my Boxer *sigh* WAS the most comfortable exotic I've driven...

if i remember correctly , you are a bit shorter than me , but much wider :P . i think drivers who are 6ft tall and above feel cramped . that pic ash put up showed the guys legs either side of the wheel , not a great position if you're trying to get up it .
