Ford Fiesta vs. Lamborghini Gallardo – Click above to watch video after the jump

Spoiler alert: A Ford Fiesta cannot beat a Lamborghini Gallardo in a straight line. However, the "quick and nimble" Fiesta "that loves the tight corners" has a few superhero tricks of its own that lets it take down the Lambo in a fair... or not... fight. We'll call this The Turning Circle Takedown. Follow the jump for the all the gloves-off competition you can handle, and try not to ralph at the presentation or the outcome.

      This was great- tongue in cheek funny. :D

      Testing the "handling"? I don't think they know the meaning of the term - unless handling=smallest turning radius.
      • 4 Years Ago
      Really? So it has a smaller turning radius, not better cornering. Who is cross shopping these two anyways?
        • 4 Years Ago
        Your not serious, who's cross shopping those two? It was a parody, and "cute" . It must be aimed at young girls.

      must be one of those american commercials

      If the lambo driver knew how to drift that back end around....
      • 4 Years Ago
      Ok, now open the taps up on the Lambo and let the back end slide around.
      • 4 Years Ago
      I like the Fiesta and Ford, but you've gone too far.

      Can't bust that 34 foot turning radius? It's called throttle induced oversteer, something Fiesta owners will never experience.

        They'll just just the hand brake instead.....

      Sure beats the Audi A1 ad with Justin whatshisname for entertainment!

      So according to the geniuses behind this commercial, the best "HANDLING" vehicle in the world is no doubt a forklift... uh huh

      Needs more edge and sarcasm, like Top Gear. First claim: The Fiesta is safer because it floats. Toss both cars in a pool. The Fiesta driver swims away, while the Lambo driver struggles and drowns. Second clam: the Fiesta does not spontaneously burst into flames. Cut to a still shot of a parked Fiesta. Pause ten seconds. Confirmed; Fiesta does not burst into flames. Now for the Lambo (hold breath)... Wow, did not burst into flames either. Last claim: Fiesta has superior off-road abilities. Have driver beat crap out of Fiesta trying to prove it's an off-road vehicle. (Silliness ensues.) On the same tests, Lambo fails miserably. Conclusion: The Fiesta is far superior to the Lamborghini. It floats, does not burst into flames, and has superior off-road abilities. Excellent value.

      Autoblog is obviously being paid some big $$$$$$ by Ford.

      $20k+...for a cheap rollerskate. You could buy a CIVIC with that money!
        • 4 Years Ago
        ...then you'd have a cheap doorstop; what's your point?

        I'll take the Fiesta, thanks.
