My teeth were in braces when I first sat in a Lamborghini. My dad took me to a showroom knowing I would get a chance to see and maybe even touch some of the cars that he knew I idolized.
After more than an hour of ogling, the sales rep walked up to us and I fully expected her to thank us for our enthusiasm, but kindly ask us to leave. Instead, she unlocked a teal green Murcielago and I got to pretend I could see over the wheel.
And that is why it is my distinct pleasure to give you a tour of that car’s successor: the Lamborghini Aventador.
Like all Lamborghini products, the Aventador is reserved for people with particularly deep pockets. Pricing kicks off at right around $404,000 including the gas guzzler tax and delivery, but that number climbs further into the stratosphere as soon as you start digging into the options list.
Inside the engine compartment, there’s a 6.5-liter V12 engine that screams to over 8,000 rpm making 700 hp and 509 lb-ft of torque. There’s only one transmission option: Lamborghini’s ISR automated manual sending power to a permanent all-wheel drive system.
Not that you care, but the EPA says you should expect 11 mpg in the city, 18 on the highway or 13 on average.
It may be the most civilized, street-capable Lamborghini ever, but it can also leave you feeling like you just walked off a swirling amusement park ride after leg day at the gym.
I’m standing in the shade of pit lane at the Ascari Race Resort in Southern Spain; my head spinning from being repeatedly snapped around while by brain feels overworked from the intense data processing I just demanded of it. Simultaneously, my thighs are still tight from holding my body in place under repeated heavy braking.
Just then a company representative asks if I’d like another go around the three-mile track in the fantastically new Huracán LP610-4.
Keep your eye on the 2014 Geneva Motor Show, where we'll see plenty of exotics including the McLaren 650S and Koenigsegg One:1. Also expect to see other new cars like the Lexus NX, Audi TT, BMW X4 and the Alfa Romeo 4C Spider. Coverage starts on March 4, so be sure to stop by.
