its not vastly differnt than the murcielago. the giggest difference was in sound to me plus the egear setup. its very powerful, i think in a couple of years when the cars depreciate a little it will be an excellent car to buy. but i think the glass cover is a must. silver and orange look best on the car i think. i really think lamborghini is going to take the murcielago in a differnt direction seeing as how the gallardo is so clsoe in performance and looks from the front from afar for such a cheaper price.
