Tonino Lamborghini CULV laptop – Click above for image gallery

Take a particular slant on supercar history and you'd be forgiven for categorizing Lamborghini as another pretender to Ferrari's throne. Enzo was, after all, the spiteful impetus for Ferruccio's branching out from tractors to sportscars, and some might say has been playing catch-up ever since. Whatever way you look at it, that's certainly the case when it comes to merchandising, an area which – for better or worse – Ferrari's long been the leader.

As Ferrari has its line of Acer computers, so has Lamborghini teamed up with Asus for a range of laptops. But this is something altogether different. Tonino Lamborghini – Ferruccio's son with his own line of merchandise – has granted his name and variation on the raging bull badge to be used on this seemingly pedestrian laptop. The specs are rather run-of-the-mill and the design is rather uninspired, as you'll find in the gallery below and the source links. But at 649 euros, it's a fair bit cheaper than the four-figure tags on either its namesake's or its rival's more upscale offerings.

      100% uninspired, like the Ferrari 458.

      Shouldn't a Torino Lamborghini be red with a huge pointy L Stripe?

      Who the hell buys this crap?
        • 4 Years Ago
        People who can't get the real deal. To be honest I already have a good laptop so I'd settle for a nice model

      Torino Lamborghini does not have its own fame in the market. I don't think it is worth en.

        "When it's in support of a companys racing efforts then why not...but the people that buy stuff like Ferrari shirts or BMW dinette set"

        Ferrari is first and foremost a racing shop (AB misses the point that this is why Ferrari will always have more credibility than Lamborghini). They got into roadcars to help fund the racing effort and that ridiculous tacky branding they do goes into that bottomless pit of money called F1. Just like your Sauber hat.

        You mean to tell me all those randoms I see wearing Ferrari shirts don't really have Ferraris? My faith in the world is shaken.

      Of course it's exponentially faster than any Lambo would ever be... Just not physically...
