When I was younger I thought the Ferrari and Lamborghini represented the ultimate in cars, but these days I’m not quite as infatuated. Now don’t get me wrong, if either one handed me a set of keys and told me to go crazy, I would probably burn through a tank or two of gas. Both companies have ridiculously well-engineered and assembled supercars, but given the choice of what to buy if money were no option, these wouldn’t be at the top of my list.
Of course based on the number of photographers swirling around both booths every time I walked by, it’s clear I’m in the minority. Also I’m sure it didn’t hurt that both Ferrari and Lamborghini were the only booths with models on hand during the press-only days.
You can find quite a few more pics of what Ferrari and Lamborghini brought to the show after the jump, and if anyone wants larger versions of any photo, just let me know in the comments.
It was also interesting to see this F430 Spider Biofuel version at the Ferrari booth. At a show where ‘green’ was a major theme, this particular Ferrari didn’t make much of an impact, but it’s nice to see them making the effort. To quote a paraphrase on EcoGeek, “it’s still a fuel-intense Ferrari that’s not really green, and for all the 4 or 5 times it’s used in a year, from cradle to cradle it’s still a net loss for the environment.”
