Yellow Gallardo at King and Spadina.

Damn that thing is sweet, and the exhaust note is to die for.

Those aren't Roadster wheels. Those are the 19" Callisto wheels. And the Gallardo 'vert isn't called a Roadster, but Spyder.

you missed the point.

I pass by a Jaguar dealership every once in a while. i'm not flooded by Jags... in fact, the only jags I see in the area are the ones on the actual lot parked.

Probably none, except the terminology.

Just because you pass by there at the wrong time doesn't mean it doesn't make sense. No soup for you

I don't think it was a roadster, but I'm not 100% as I was too busy staring at the car and listening to it go by.

As for you guys not knowing the spyder/roadster differentiation. Lamborghini officially named the convertible version of the Gallardo the Gallardo Spyder, and the Murcielago the Murcielago Roadster.

The one i drove wasn't a roadster


and europrince... why would there be tons going up and down the streets by the dealership? How many lambos do you think are around? How many do you think need to go to the dealer at the same time for service and what not? How many do you think get test driven every day? Chances are almost no one gets allowed to test drive one, and given the low #'s of lambos around why would they all go to the dealer periodically? Therefore why would there always be lambos going to/by the dealership?
