Designed by the gifted Luc Donckerwolke, the Murcilago roadster looks radically modern from the outside and luxurious from behind the wheel. Monochrome leather with contrasting stitching takes the place of modish finishes such as carbon fiber and wood, and there aren't features such as a starter button, a folding navigation screen, or a neatly integrated car phone. Instead, the Lambo welcomes you with six clearly legible circular dials, a row of five secondary push buttons, two column stalks, a CD radio, and a panel that offers two extra transmission settings and an ESP-off mode. Welcome convenience features include folding door mirrors, power cooling air scoops, and the ability to raise the nose by 1.8 inches to avoid costly curb contact.
In summer, Italy's roads are a zoo. Of the prehistoric kind. The raptors are roaming the roads. Although a yellow Lamborghini should leave a lasting impression in this animal kingdom, it's almost impossible to prevent close encounters with kamikaze scooter artists, no-risk, no-fun Valentino Rossi imitators, and breakneck delivery-van drivers. In the Murcilago, you can avert disaster by simply rocketing away from it-or by braking so hard it will miss you. Upgraded brakes are the key dynamic improvement over the coupe. With larger-diameter and fatter discs, stronger eight-piston front calipers, and a bigger brake booster to reduce the pedal pressure, the brakes are now easier to modulate, more prompt in their response, and a lot sharper. Optional ceramic brakes are in the pipeline for next year and should be even more convincing on the track, but they may well be less efficient when cold. After all, the roadster's setup will reel the car in from 125 mph to a standstill in just a little more than 500 feet.

One of the greatest automotive legends tells us that Ferruccio Lamborghini, a successful Italian manufacturer of farm tractors, built his first sports car, the 1963 350GT, as a V-12-engined middle finger to Enzo Ferrari, after Enzo displayed little sympathy for the problems Ferruccio experienced with his Ferrari road car. Thus one of the great automotive rivalries was born, and millions of Farrah Fawcett posters shared the walls of boys' bedrooms with pictures of scissor-winged Countaches as a result. This year, Automobili Lamborghini is celebrating its 40th anniversary not only by launching production of the all-new, V-10-engined Gallardo--which is smaller and cheaper and has two fewer cylinders than the Murcielago, even if it looks basically like a 7/8th-scale version of the hard-edged, V-12 machine--but also by establishing the Registro Lamborghini, to recognize some of the better examples of the 10,000 Lamborghinis still on the road; by finishing a new Restoration Centre, which will assist owners of historic Lamborghini models in factory-specified restorations; and by opening the Centro Stile Lamborghini, a concept design studio that will be directed by Luc Donckerwolke, the 38-year-old Belgian designer who had a major hand in the styling of both the Murcielago and the new Gallardo. Adjacent to the legendary factory in Sant'Agata Bolognese, near Modena, is the Lamborghini Museum, which opened two years ago to encapsulate and celebrate Lamborghini's history as the thorn in Ferrari's side. This two-story, glass-walled testament to the Company of the Bull displays in all their splendor rare Lamborghini models such as the very first and last Countaches ever built, a 1998 GT2 prototype race car, the last Diablo ever built, and a gold 1966-68 Miura.
