Car’s make and model: 2003 Lamborghini Murcielago

“I love my car because … it has opened up opportunities to meet more car people and car events than I had ever imagined. I bought the car while working near San Francisco in October 2011 and drove up here shortly afterwards on Thanksgiving weekend. I soon discovered an exotic car event that I am now a regular volunteer at in Redmond every Saturday. They say you meet the nicest people in a Lamborghini and it’s true. The car is painted a Blue Hera exterior (which is one of the rarest colors painted from the factory) and has beautiful light cream interior called Acorn. I’m a firm believer that a great Lamborghini will always have the doors go up in the iconic image associated with the brand. It has 580 horsepower and is AWD all the time. A true 12-cylinder 6.2-liter engine resonates just behind your head as you click through the six-speed manual transmission.  Although it’s not the easiest car on the pocketbook, it does provide miles of smiles during its time on the road.”
