When it comes to superheroes, let’s face it: many physicians can be considered real-life superheroes, even if most physicians don’t see themselves that way.
Real-life human superheroes (i.e. Iron Man, The Batman, Spider-Man, etc) seem to capture the imagination of people of all ages – the young and the “seasoned”. Why? Well, because humans are vulnerable – we all have our weaknesses, just like every superhero has their known weaknesses, too. But you know, every human is capable of being a superhero – in one way or another.
So, if you were a superhero and had your choice of transportation (assuming you didn’t possess the flying superpowers of superheroes like Superman), what would you choose?
Well, if you are The Batman, this might be the ride for you: a black Lamborghini Gallardo Spyder.
Yes, we know Lamborghinis seem to be a favorite of the caped crusader when it comes to on-screen blockbuster movies (e.g. the famous gray Lamborghini Murcielago LP640 that Bruce Wayne drove – and unforgivably crashed! – in The Dark Knight).
But you know, the Murcielago/LP640 isn’t exactly a great daily driver. It’s big; it’s bulky; all-around visibility isn’t the greatest when you’re behind the wheel; and you just can’t park that beast wherever you want. And good luck getting into (i.e. squeezing into) a parking garage in that thing!
Enter the Gallardo Spyder. It’s much smaller than the Murcielago. It’s got GREAT visibility with the top down (it’s a convertible for crikey’s sake!). And it’s got a great Lamborghini V10 engine that will out-sing ANY Batman theme song! Ok, so gas mileage isn’t that great (maybe 10-12 mpg on a GOOD day) – but hey, if you’re billionaire Bruce Wayne, does that even matter?
Yes, the Lamborghini Gallardo Spyder might just be the perfect daily driver…if you are The Batman and are looking for a nice Batmobile…
P.S. Yes, we know The Batman will be upgrading his Lamborghini to the latest and greatest Lamborghini Aventador LP700-4 in the upcoming movie The Dark Knight Rises, but we suspect he might just keep the Gallardo Spyder as his “beater car”. Wouldn’t you?…
