Question What gets more attention..2013 Lamborghini LP550-2 or 2013 Bentley Continental GT?

There are really good lease terms on both cars, Continental GT has a new body style (from 2012) and is cheaper than the Gallardo. But if you had to say, which one would grabs the most attention from chicks? I need to make up my mind before the 31'st because then the bentley lease deal ends. 4400 down, only 1,998.00 a month! it's for 48 months, u get 20,000 miles total allowed miles. Gallardo is 13k down, 2510.00 a month for 36 months but you only get 7500 miles total. But as far as attention whoring, which one? I know bentley is more comfortable but remember its only a weekend/dating/clubbing car for me. The CGT now has a twin turbo charged 4.0 motor at like around 500 something hp. Gallardo has 550 hp.

What are you going to try driving the thing into the clubs/bars? If its to just pick up girls, maybe you should be spending more time with different people and social circles instead of using the "hi I have a Lambo" to try and get laid.

But I like having a high end car, especially when you finally get a date. Remember the age group I'm shooting for, 21-27, they are usually very shallow at this age. Also I like having a high end car for conversation about cars with whomever.

I fit in it but it is rather tight, even with the power option seat, my legs are bent, there is no reclining in an Gallardo. Thats the only bad part, and its hard to see on the sides because there is a very sharp slant on the windshield and A pillars block the view a lot. Bentley can recline, has rear seats (a joke just like porsche rear seats, no leg space). Bentley would be a lot more comfortable, its a trade off on both cars. Hard to decide, both are great cars. Definately more comfortable on the bentley for sure but I just want the most impressive car...mostly.

the GT will look like any other bentley to your average 21-27 year old .. nice but nothing special.

The lambo will make you look like a 15 year old texan girl ... http://jalopnik.com/5944568/is-a-15+...to-high-school

actually her's is better than yours ...

About a month ago my friend and I went to Hollywood (Supper Club) in his 2012 black on black gallardo. When leaving, there was a crowd of chicks walking out of an elevator admiring the gallardo asking him how much the car was worth. Gallardos seem to draw a crowd in LA.

Why not just rent one occasionally? I would buy an 84 Buick and find a girl that actually likes you for you. Like the one we heard about when you first found the site.

Dont get me wrong, most of us married with kids guys would like to be you for a long weekend, cool cars, dishrags and not a care in the world.

Just go to the clubs in your series, mine draws plenty of attention around here. Exotics especially in SoCal are dime a dozen (relatively), nothing attracts positive attention like a rough old land rover.

The one I'm with right now likes me for who I am. She never cared about what I drove when we first met. Still dosen't, just wants sex and to spend time with me. But Im not one that is very good at nourishing relationships so I tend to plan ahead. Besides, its just a car, I'm not planning on keeping it, just leasing for fun.

Sheeett I used to take my Series III to Hollywood every weekend, even to clubs but I was too embarassed to take girls on rides because their clothes would get dirty from random 90wt oil smears. Plus my friends made fun of me BIG TIME. Even when I drove the D90 around. It's true though, girls don't like D90's in LA. BTW my Series III still has a 12 inch sub in the back along with 2 JBL amps. At one time I had 2 15" subs in the back, man that was crazy. Might of been the only series III that did that.

Leasing really eliminates a lot of cool cars

Why the heck would you lease? Pick up a 599 or a 612 for 100k-150k and eat the depreciation which will be orders of magnitude less than the lease payments.

Also Lambos say: I am trying to hard and Bentleys say: I am an old man.
