Article: Silver Lamborghini Gallardo Is Impractical As Street Car For Danica Patrick
We all know that it is tough excelling in a man’s world, like in the driving of race cars. But Go Daddy girl Danica Patrick is the “It” girl of racing. Despite all that she has accomplished, she remains in touch with her feminine side. My gosh, she is sooo pretty! And I am not gay!
Anyway, Danica has a street car that she uses as a personal effect. And no, it is not a Honda, Kia, or Toyota but a Silver Lamborghini Gallardo!
The problem is, Miss Patrick found out that the Lamborghini is not practical for every day use.
Some of her problems: Potholes, parking, no coffee holder, and no trunk for the luggage. She says, “I got it originally because I had a 645 BMW and it was a convertible. It was the first car I ever bought because I had always gotten cars through teams or deals.” Danica thought that the BMW but it lacked speed and power. And apparently, this is not enough for a race car drive like her.
Danica also tried an Aston Martin Vantage because it looked good but it just wasn’t fast enough for her. While she drove the Lamborghini for a while, she found out that there are just too many things that she cannot do with it.
So now, Miss Patrick is the proud owner of a Mercedes ML63 AMG, which is a mid-sized luxury SUV that retails about $92,000.
