Lamborghinis & more Lamborghinis at UW

It sounded like lions were roaming the University of Washington campus this afternoon, where you could hear the roar of Lamborghinis prowling around the buildings.

A dozen or so cars, ranging from the entry-level $220,000 Gallardo Spyder up to the $450,000 Murcielago SV, were on hand for the grand opening of the Automobili Lamborghini Advanced Composite Structures Laboratory.

After the opening, officials and local Lamborghini owners mingled over wine on the lawn outside Guggenheim Hall. Some wore their Lamborghini shirts and jewelry; when I asked one couple if they drove their supercar, the man said, “No, I drove the Bentley.”

To top this spectacle, the school will have to get a 787 onto campus somehow.
