This one's from December, but I found this to be interesting:

Let’s face it, the 6.2 Murciélago’s 570bhp could arguably be described as more than enough. With another 60bhp, the LP640 delivers such a violent kick in the killer third cog that it had me grinning like an imbecile.

Well, until I mashed the middle pedal, that is. Fancy a dislocated shoulder? There’s probably few more enjoyable ways to get one… LP07 hasn’t even got the hugely expensive ceramic brakes option, but its brakes are a total and utter contrast to the 6.2’s panic-inducing set-up.

Finally, there’s the icing on this pearl white cake. Agility. Oh, and stability. Spades of it. Before the LP640, no road-going Murciélago could ever masquerade as a proper track car. Weighing almost 1.7 tons, my old orange Lambo would gently roll through the twisties on a circuit like a motorcruiser. Enjoyable? Of course! But a Gallardo would eat it alive. Yet the LP640… It’s not even been to Weight Watchers – in fact it’s even gained a few extra pounds – but it's still managed to acquire that well-balanced ‘planted’ feeling only its V10 brother possessed until now.

I'm not an oracle of answers, I just find it amusing that anyone who's been around "our" group still doesn't know stuff like this... well, enlightening actually, but it made me laugh out loud, I only use that term when I actually do it!

Anyhoo, CCB = Carbon Ceramic Brakes.

For the reason it's so funny search the fchat archives.

I remember reading the running costs of his 6.2, never mind the asking price!

Are they still running the Zonda?
