They're clinchers but at least they're tubeless.

At least he deserves it cause I know he works damn hard for it. And that car plus the insurance is a godo chunk of his salary unlike some people who get paid 10x more to hit a ball around.

Oops. Only needed one.

If you Google Evo Lancer, you can see a Murcielago getting absolutely owned by a Lancer Evo 9.

have to disagree.

mcewan has a neck, therefore he does not look like a body builder.

he's also too tall.

Yeah but an Evo Lancer looks like a dumb taxi with a big spoiler compared to the Lambo.

It's not a street racer. Nurburgring: Evo 9 at 8:11, Murcielago at 7:43 = pwned. It's kind of like McEwan beating Cancelara in a sprint: they're both fast but...

Lamborghini is the fat slob NFL player's car. Ferrari actually cares who buys their cars and what is done to them.
