    Dratts1,

    I personally like "MurchseELaahgoh"... with a defined "ELa". It is the way that the lady from fifth gear says it, when she is teaching her mother how to race one around a track (on youtube). I'll look for the link if you can't find it.

    and I have heard the Gallardo as "Guyardo" from the local Lamborghini dealer.

    I always pronounced it "Reventun" I heard someone call it a "Revving tun" Basically say the word revving half a second pause and tun!

    GTO,

    Direct orders from Lamborghini state that the Reventon is to be "RehBenton", yeah... with a "B". It's wierd, but its from the mouth of a Lamborghini rep.

    Hughes, thanks for the reference to you tube and fifth gear. It sounded like she said mercy Elaahgoh not murchse Elaahgoh, but I failed my hearing exam 5 years ago so what do I know? Lots of videos I'll want to see when I have a faster connection than this 3g I have now.

    I alternate between "Mur-cie-ler-go" & Mur-sia-largo ;D
    Fifth Gear's Tiff Needle pronounces it as "Mur-cie-ler-go"
    Top gear's Jeremy Clarkson pronounces it Mur-sia-largo

    Rebenton :-\ Sounds like a fashion boutique for kids....... I'll stick with Revventun!

    I agree with Kitcar Bud on the pronciation. As far as the Reventon, I have no clue. What I do know is how they came up with the name, and what its named after. Would anybody care to take a guess?
