TopGear drives the Lambo Gallardo STS in Italy

But buying a supercar for rational reasons is a fatuous demonstration of disposable income. You buy a supercar because you want it, not because it offers serious solutions to transport issues. I know that the Super Trofeo Stradale is basically a racy massage to keep the Gallardo in the news. But it's also the one with the massive wing. Which makes it, right here, right now, the best car in the World.
