Top Gear drives the Lambo Gallardo STS
Flat out across Italy in the extreme new Super Trofeo Stradale. The perfect day?

"HOLYMOTHERJESUSGOD." A bit cocky, and suddenly I find religion. There's an airy moment of discovery that - hello, suddenly thumping heart - the wheel is turned, and absolutely nothing is happening. Ice. The road has flipped to slippery, slick and shiny, and this very-special-edition Lambo is ploughing blankly towards the wooden barriers. I sit like an imbecile for what seems like an age, wondering idly whether I'm about to lose my job. Time enough to flick through the phone call to the boss: "It's not going to polish out... because it's two feet shorter than it was this morning. And 100ft down a gorge. On its roof. On fire." Perceptions accelerated during moments of stress, and all that.
