    Default AutoWeek Compares New Lamborghini to Evo IX

    In the current issue of AutoWeek Magazine (not sure of the date, but in Jan. 2011), there is an article about their test drive in the prototype for the next top of the line Lamborghini, which will be replacing the Murcielago later this year. While raving about the great handling of the new Lambo, which must be a $350,000 car, they say that you can toss it around with the same level of confidence as you can Mitsubishi Lancer Evo IX. High praise indeed.

    1992 Honda (Acura) NSX 5-MT - classic investment I couldn't resist and occasionally drive
    2004 Honda S2000 AP2 6-MT - track day car
    2006 Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution IX MR 6-MT - when I need a backseat, 4-doors, or a real trunk, and still want to haul ass . . .

    You can BACK an Evo IX into a corner and still not spin it. It's like playing an arcade racing game on Playstation.
