The Lamborghini Aventador, very desirable, certainly iconic, but a not so beautiful supercar, well in my opinion anyway.
Outrageous styling, scissor doors, a new carbon-fibre chassis and a new six and a half little V12 engine pumping out 700 horsepower, nice. The stronger, lighter chassis helps is to lose weight compared to its predecessor, helping to launch it to 62mph (100km/h) in 2.9 seconds (wow) and reach a top speed of 219mph (349 km/h).
Fifth Gear’s Tiff Needell says of the car “There’s none of Ferrari’s fancy magnetic damping here, nor any of the McLaren’s individual flexibility. The ride is harsh and with only a single clutch on the robotised manual gearbox, the fastest shifts in Corsa mode and brutal – but then that’s why we love Lamborghini’s. They are what they are…raging bulls.”
Keith Adams, for Evo Magazine said, “The line between supercar and hypercar has been blurred with the arrival of the Aventador, and with nearly 700bhp for £211,000 it actually offers – relative – value for money in terms of power for your pound.”
So there you have a summary of Lamborghini’s new car to replace the Murciélago. What do you think of Aventador? It is beautiful? Or is that not the point? It’s a Lamborghini, it’s a little mad, and that’s why we love them!
