On our trip from Milano to Elba Island, we stopped by the Lamborghini
factory and museum. It was absolutely incredible. On the factory
tour we walked through a parking lot of 40-50 Lamborghinis....
absolutely insane. Retail price starts at 250,000 Euros for the
current model, Lamborghini Murcielago. Only 2,000 are made each year,
and there's a one-year waiting list. Every detail on the car can be
customized, and every car is customized (each is made to order). One
of the crazier customizations was all-crocodile seats. The cars were
beautiful and impressive. The current model uses a V-12, 640
horsepower engine, and can go zero to 60 in 3.2 seconds. The assembly
line was rather simple - almost nothing mechanized-these cars are
really hand made.
