Therefore, I take the list like as The Bucket List that I need to do. Good thing that upon learning that driving a supercar in Singapore make it to the list, the management of Ultimate Drive throw lucky draw for a free ride to 2 lucky followers of TSL Facebook page. And as you might guess, I am one of those winners :-)
I am so excited to be able to strike out one more item from the bucket list. When Arthur Loo, manager of Ultimate Drive, contacted me, I am faced with a difficult choice of the Prancing Horse, Ferrari F430 F1 Spider or the Raging Bull, Lamborghini Gallardo Spyder. Seeing that the Lamborghini pack more power with its V10 5-litre engine that can reach top speed over 300 km/h, I decided to take that for a spin.

Since both of these cars are convertible type, meaning the roof panel could fold away, I tried to get a late afternoon slot (5-7pm). Unfortunately that time-slots on Saturday proven to be popular with only Ferrari available at 5pm. Determined to tame the bull, I took any other available slot for Lamborghini on Saturday the 11th of January and that happens to be 12:30pm.
It's nice to find that they have black and yellow Lamborghini Gallardo. I couldn't imagine myself to drive a Lamborghini that is not black, just like a Ferrari that is not red.

After some nervous start and learn to use its transmission system (it is a hybrid of auto and manual; and it is located on the steering wheel itself), I am off to re-trace the road used for Singapore Formula 1 Grand Prix (the only F1 night race in the world).
