    so there i was.. minding my own business cruising down the road Saturday.. low and behold i see this beautiful black lambo convertible drive by on the opposite side of the road.. i had a passenger with me, and i said "wow that is a gorgeous car watch this"
    so we turn and start to follow it.. the perfect opportunity presented itself much like the perfect wave that comes along once in a while.. i pull up next to the driver at a light.. 3 lane road, he is in the center, i am on the right. no cars in front of us and there is a nice long wide open strip of road. i casually glance over at the driver and he is used to being stared at i can tell.. i do not wanna be that guy that stares and revs my engine.. i glance down and hit the SRT button.. i switch to my sport mode. i look over at him as i gently let out a little rev. (i could not help it)
    he looks back with that stare of "mine is way better than yours buddy do not even try it" as the light is about to change..i wait patiently to see if he wants to go. the light changes and i give him about a second or so to see if he is going to take off.. he does, and he guns it. i took off with him having a head start and completely stomped him.. he was really trying too.. i felt bad.. it was too easy. as we pulled up next to each other he gave me a thumbs up and said "well looks like i wasted 300 grand" and we laughed and gave a thumbs up back.. another driver pulled up next to me and said "way to go! way to show American muscle that was great" and we laughed and said "thank you" and gave a thumbs up.. then we went back to cruising down the road. it was the perfect scenario, and it was a beautiful day.. a little personal victory i thought i would share with everyone here.. ;)

    I had a similar experience with one, and you're right.... it's off-putting how easy it was to beat a car like that (that most of us would have always put up on a pedestal).

    Nice to see he had a good spirit about it too.

    Where do I send the ticket? :cool:

    I'm impressed I was not sure how some of these exotics compare to our cars.

    it was a gorgeous car. i felt bad when he said he wasted 300k..but he did not waste it in my opinion..
    it is not the first lambo i have taken.. i have also rolled over a Ferrari and a GTR :cool: this may be hard to believe for some, but i promise you it did happen..
    the Hellcat just dominates. :)

    p.s. this was a calculated risk.. i am not out there street racing every car i see.. i pick my battles and wait for as close to safe, and perfect road conditions as possible.. and definitely not in the city.. hope this post does not annoy everyone. i try and keep the craziness on the track.

    Good job Blaze. I have a mate with a Murcielago LP670SV. A mate who has been in both cars said he would not like to place a bet on which one is faster. My Cat had around 600 miles back then and runs much much stronger now.
