Adventures in Lambo Land

Apr 27th, 2011 | Categories: Automobiles | by Michael Williams

The guys from UrbanDaddy’s awesome new auto site Driven sent me on assignment to test drive the new Lamborghini Gallardo at a private track in Monticello, New York. You can’t make this stuff up. Read all about it here: [Mr. ACL Meets the New Lambo]

    How were Red Wings a good idea for driving a Lamborghini? Did they work out ok? Seems like it would be rather a pain in the ass to negotiate the pedal box in work boots. Even some old beat up topsiders would have given better pedal feel / allowed for proper shifting and braking technique.

    1. Red Wing makes chukkas, which is what I was wearing.
    2. You shift with your hands (and no clutch).
    3. No braking.

    That’s all completely reasonable and awesome then. Driving a manual in the wrong shoes is like skiing in loose boots: it really sucks. Was just worried for your experience. Glad it was rad.

    After seeing that car I’m wondering if you are Batman or the butler. In the event that you are in fact Batman, could you use a butler?

    I had to look at this post a couple of times. Even if there were no words, just the images are compelling enough don’t you think?

    I’d kill to be kitted up in a helmet standing next to a Lambo. Shoot, I’d kill to have a ride in one, let alone drive one. Can I then go to heaven?

    Thanks for the nice entry, & hitting the sweet spot that makes many guys tick.

    Cheers man.
