Looks like the single engine version :(
Too bad, I would like to find a red one in that condition Twin Turbo.

What makes it look like a single engine version? That looks just like one that I had about 10 years ago: http://www.dragonshobbies.com/images/rc/00Mar-TycoLambo002.JPG

Update: Nevermind, I just so his other post saying it was single engine: http://dragonhobbies.com/forum/index.php?topic=4075.0

I'm still curious if there is a difference in the way that they look though.

Yep, there is a physical difference.  The Twin Turbos have a short squared front bumper and the single engine has the long curved front bumper ;)

Ok, Thanks. So, a large front bumper is the indicative sign of it having just one motor, as seen in the attached photo. (Just FYI, I modified the color of the photo just to allow the bumper to stand out. I doubt the car should look pink.)

Yep, the Twin Turbo Lambos have the shorter square front bumper and the triangular side chassis pieces like this:
