If you have yet to ride in the bodacious Lamborghini Aventador (and most of us never will), it’s one hell of a ride.
The two-seater Lamborghini Aventador is as exotic, flamboyant and hyperbole as racecars come. After all, it is a Lambo. And that means money, in so many words.
Classified as a standard coupe (also comes as a Roadster), you’ll benefit from 19” front wheels and 20” rear wheels, equipped with high-performance racing tires and heat-eating, carbon-ceramic brakes with a flashy and deployable rear spoiler.
With adjustable height suspension, you’ll hug every curve and dimension of the road. Hill-start assist will tug up those deeper grades, while automated bi-xenon headlamps will light the way nearly as bright as day.
LED running lights inform others that you are there (and in a Lambo), while powered and heated, folding side mirrors let you park with ease (like this car is going anywhere but the valet line).
Inside you will get automated climate control, premium leather upholstery, custom gauge cluster, GPS, Audi’s Multimedia Interface with touchscreen and Bluetooth/iPod/USB integration.
Opt for the Roadster and you get a powered rear window and wind deflector as well as signature sectioned hexagonal glass plates to showcase your engine.
Don’t forget add-ons, the likes of which include: carbon-fiber body kit, transparent engine cover, parking sensors (front and rear), heated and powered seating, multimedia-enhanced steering wheel and premium sound system. Notwithstanding the countless other upgrades that are available, too.
Luckier, and wealthier, shoppers can get their hands on the Aventador LP720-4 50 Anniversario, if one of the 100 models ever made are available for sale. It boasts an upgraded body kit, exclusive mods and better engine tuning.
Under the hood is an awe-inspiring, 6.5-liter V12 engine that packs a serious punch and delivers a whopping 690 horsepower and 509 pound-feet of torque. It’s able to go from zero-to-60 in about 2.9 seconds.
Defibrillator to restart your heart after hitting three-level g-force in three seconds and flat-lining: not included.
