Lamborghini Murcielago

Running a Lamborghini can occasionally cause some embarrassing moments, such as foolishly reversing into a parked Clio outside a packed Leeds bar, or trying to look cool clambering out and then tripping over the doorsill. But recently I surpassed both of those examples when I found myself with a red face, buying seven large tubs of Vaseline from Boots - to daub over the Murcie's newly painted front end to temporarily protect it from stonechips, you understand.
