I just read in a norwegian car magazine that Lamborghini is supposed to be building a diesel engine. I searched around the internet and found out that it might be coming a Gallardo Diesel with a 5.0-litre 309bhp V10 VW engine.<p>Can anyone come with additional information? <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.germancarfans.com/images/forums/drink.gif" BORDER="0"> <p>

i just don't get it ....why make diesel for a exotic car?<br>ok diesel is cheaper, but do you really think that a person who paid $100,000 or over for a car like that, wouldn't have any money on petrol... I just don't get it

I heard about this too. There is actually a Gallardo testing with a diesel engine around Modena from what I've read, but it's testing for Audi's future LeMans sports car. I think it was in last months Evo or Car.

It's all probably to improve gas mileage, and to improve engine durability. My hunches.

I think it all about image.<p>If you have a Diesel supercar your diesel super mini or other car is not to be considered a truck!<p>There must also be some tax breaks or loopholes around there as well... <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.germancarfans.com/images/forums/crying.gif" BORDER="0">

look at it this way...why should all exotic car owners be forced to just use regular gas? Maybe some want to cross over and start using diesel...The next thing I could see is a NSX hybrid...do we have a rolling eyes emoticon? if we do it would go here *_*
