Tough choice, which do you prefer ?

It depends on what you want. I would take the lambo, but they're totally different cars. The Ferrari seems like more of a luxury touring car then the lambo, so I guess it's what you're more into. If you're just going for looks and a top down, I'd go for the lambo.
Just to add to the confusion
Not that tough really, I prefer the 550. I personally think that the Lambo will start to look dated after a few years like the Countach and the Diablo. The 550, like all Ferrari's, will look good even after 20 years.
I don't think the lambo will start to look dated. The anniversay countachs look dated because of the ground effects. The lp500 countachs without the ground effects and wing still look great. The interior of the countach looks a little dated because of the angles used in it, but it's not really a big deal.
What are the specs on the Zonda?
Pagani uses an MB 6.0 V8 I believe. The workmanship on the Pagani is far beyond the Ferrari or the Lambo. Pagani makes a lot of carbon fiber parts for Ferrari & Lambo
Since you already have a Ferrari and Lambo, go with the Pagani. Though the drivetrain sounds might not be as good.
actually, I plan on getting this after I get the F40
I'll wait for the price to soften more on the other cars
Sorry, to be a pain,
but i may be talking out of my posterior here, but I thaught the Zonda had a 7 litre 12 cylinder Merc unit in it?
Oh, and regarding the question at hand,
I prefer the Lambo, however depends what your after,
as we all know the long term resale on a Lambo cannot match that of an F car,
however I personally think that the 550 Barchetta is not the nicest F car around, But i dont have one because i cannot afford one, so i guess i shouldnt really comment.
You are probably correct
If you get an e-type, you won't need the other three. No it's not nearly as fast, or handle as well, but the e-type is a great open top gt car. I'm sure you know this by now. So you're getting an F-40. Do you really need our help in sellecting cars? Are you going to sell any of your current cars?
Back to topic: I prefer the 550 Barchetta, definitely. It's a very nice car. But not in that color
In this order;
Zonda, Murcielago, 550
Hands down no questions asked the Lambo.
you tell someone you have a zonda, and they think you said honda!!!! how are you supposed to pick up a hot chick with a car name like that.... now if you say, ferrari ...that flows off the tongue...she will melt in your arms !!!but seriously, i have driventhe 550 b, its a very nice car, but i actually perfer driving the 360spider, and it has a real top and better body structure and is mor efun to drive...the murci is a beast, i love the coupe, perhaps my favorite car....i am sure the conv will be very nice btu i wish it had a real top... i would but the coupe and with money i save, buy a 355 spider for sunny days
And if you say Lamborghini, she'll pull your pants down herself & get to work!
But on a serious note, the Ferrari & Lamborghini are two very different cars, but if I had to choose, it'd be the Lamborghini b/c of the more modern design. Granted, the Ferrari Barchetta is meant to be a classic & its a magnificent car, but I like to live for the here & now.
Exactly what I would do get a Murci and for the sunny days get a nice 355 drop top or a 360. The Murci barchetta is hot never the less though.
The Barchetta is one of my favorrite cars so i gotta stick with that.
I'll take the Lambo on this one. the 550 is a great car, no doubt about it, but with the soft top nowhere in sight. i don't care for the factory one (UGH) or the various aftermarket versions. the Murci will actually drive will drive with the top on. does anyone know if it is auto? hard to judge by the one photo.
the picture of the black murci is pure sex. makes me think...
The Zonda is a 7 Liter AMG tuned engine.
7.3L for the S . They now have their own custom transmission too. Basically the same car as the Chrysler ME-412 (which is no more than a re-bodied/turboed Zonda ... look at the interior, ****ty plastics, same shape!)
Zonda? Honda? I personally care less what people think. But I have to admit I'd like saying I have a Pagani, people will have no frickin idea what car it is (even car crazy people here barely know the specs), thus will make no social symbol statements. I like that.
For you Zonda lovers (loads slowly, but damn worth it ) -> http://bbs.carword.com/uploadfile/2...51994527520.jpg
Horacio Pagani also designed the Chrysler ME-412
