Aventador Roadster



I'm not that fond of the Aventador to be honest.

Anyone's thoughts?

No, I'd actually feel better in a Vet as not looking over the top like that one.

That car is made for hard top. it looks.....'not right in the head'

0 - 62 in 3.0 top speed 217.

I love it especially in that color combination.

Lamborghini is making a serious effort in our local area. Kudos on proper engine glass - even better an electric rear glass operator.

Think it's the hottest car on the market and the cf is ridiculous.

I like the Aventador on the technical point of view. It's an impressive achievement, especially the central suspension system and complex suspension arms. I had the chance to study in details an Aventador with all the body parts removed making all the technology very visible. They made also a huge effort in isolating all engine bay parts to avoid any risk of fire. Overall excellent technical design and engineering. Ferrari should take an example of it But the Aventador remains a kind of Batman car and the external look isn't too much my cup of tea

Hehe, from one of the Bale movies.

I still prefer the Murcielago over the Aventador.

I'd love to see those wheels on a black Aventador coupe.

The Aventador is one of my favourite cars! It's like the batmobile of modern times!!

The batmobile wishes!

Aventador is all Bull!

Love it or hate it - you have to respect what they did and especially all the F1 modifications and cf.

Those wheels are basically off the Performante and Superleggera's. Loved those when I had the Performante.

I have driven an Aventador, did nothing for me. Big and heavy. Drove the Scuderia right after and knew I made the right choice for me.

Aventador still has the crappy single clutch transmission, this new car will be around 500k in my estimations.

I would take the F12 all day over this.

Hear ya.

But I like that edgy feel which is probably why I sold the 612.

I would prefer a GTO or an Aventador to a F12 all day long.

Kinda like your 670 - I think the Scud 16M GTO 670 are the last of the really super cars with edge and for some reason I feel the Aventador has that edge - but need to drive one this spring.

I've seen a blacked out one in person on park lane, just doesn't appeal to me, the back end is ugly, the front is nice.

458 Italia still my favourite designed car since the Gallardo came out in 03.
