This is the latest Lambo, and it has a long name: 2013 Lamborghini Gallardo LP 570-4 Super Trofeo. It's a name that reminds me of Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious, but that doesn't, as a matter of fact, have anything at all to do with Mary Poppins.

What the Super Trofeo does have is a bent for racing, and, says Lamborghini, a 120 percent improvement in aerodynamics over its predecessor. That all comes from an R&D team reworking the body and adding adjustable aerodynamic devices such as its 10-position rear wing.

The Super Trofeo also benefits from improved brake ducting, which the company says increases front brake cooling by 50 percent. Not too shabby.

Basically, this angular beast is scientifically formulated to go really fucking fast without coming off the road. Are you ready (and do you have the money)?

I wonder what it's like when you own one of these and people walk up to you asking what kind of car that is... do you think it sounds douchey when you read off that long name?
