A Visit to the Lamborghini Showroom in Beijing
Published on March 13, 2010 by Tycho de Feijter
Lamborghini’s Beijing showroom is only 10 minutes bicycling away from my place so it was time for a visit. I parked my wheels right in front of the door and found is was open. A pretty saleswoman said hello, checked me out with her eyes, concluded I didn’t come to buy and let me be. That was fine with me, although I would have liked being with her a littlebittie more.
The LP550-2 Valentino Balboni. I am sure that little bearded Italian is a very nice man and a good driver, but that name is too gay for a Lambo, even ‘VB’ would have been much better. I heard Lamborghini can’t sell ‘m out, well, that is why.
The LP560-4 Spyder, forgot to take this one from the back.
Bare in the back of the showroom this very rare LP640 Versace Edition, a bit gay again, fashion designers are not known to be rough drivers while a Lambo certainly needs one. Versace added a few stickers and made the chairs in a different color, Versace thought that cool.
One last look, even though some Lamo’s are gay, it was that day, I decided to start saving some money.
Bugatti is on the second floor of the same building but the Veyron was gone. I knew they had one before so I asked where is was. A salesman told me it went with a wealthy might-be customer for a test ride. I asked when it would be back, thinking like one hour, the salesman said ‘next week’. That is a testride indeed.
