Excitement begins to swell as the wedge-shaped profile of the 2005 Lamborghini Murcielago approaches. Its angular appearance softened by its aerodynamic flowing curves justifies the combination of elegance, beauty and power in one exquisite package. You enter a world of adult fantasy as you slide into the cockpit through the scissor-style doors knowing that a 6.2 liter V12 masterpiece now lies at your fingertips. Your hands grip the leather-wrapped steering wheel revving the RPM’s in true melodious fashion. Is this reality? As you begin to pull away, the allure of those around you give reassurance that this is no dream.

Within 3.5 seconds, you have proven the Murcielago’s ability to capture 0 to 60mph in breath-taking fashion; and you only dream that you could likewise confirm its top speed of 205mph. Negotiating the road ahead, you test the 6 speed transmission with its electro-hydraulic sequential shifting by managing the twin paddles on the steering for upshifting and downshifting. No need for a clutch pedal here. As expected, its handling holds true to its heritage. The rear spoiler adjusts according to the demands of the road as does the naturally designed air vents that cool its monstrous engine. As you arrive at your destination, melancholy sets in knowing at least for the moment the indulgence has ended…until the next time. There must always be a next time.
