2013 Lamborghini Aventador

When you hear the word Lamborghini you think of fast, sexy italian cars. When you hear the engine, you know what it is. It’s rare that someone who hears it doesn’t look, let alone do a double-take. While I was not lucky enough to drive this car, I was lucky enough to be a passenger in one for a ride around New York City.

First off, let me tell you this. You will not want to buy this car if you have any type of back problems, or have passengers who easily get car sick, or live nowhere near open roads or near a race track. Riding around the rough roads in the city was not pleasant, however, being seen in the Aventador, watching people stare and push people out of the way chasing after it trying to get photos gives you a nice sense of importance. Which is exactly what this car is for. This is a car you want to be seen/heard in, whether you’re the driver or the passenger. Someone who buys this surely isn’t buying it for comfort. The combination of the tight suspension and the single clutch automatic transmission makes for an awful ride, unless you’re using it as it was intended to be used, a super car. Push this car, and it responds, “Thats how I like it!” But try and baby it, and it lets you know its not happy, fighting with you all the way until you push it again. Keep in mind, this was all from a passenger’s point of view. I can only imagine what it feels like to saddle up with this bull and take it for a ride, pushing its 691 horsepower V12 to the limit…..

But being a passenger, as you would expect in a $400k+ car, the interior is luxurious, with leather and aluminum all around. Details inside were magnificent. But one of the coolest and smallest features, is how it has a cover over the push-start button, like you’re getting ready to launch a missle, which, you kind of are. Flip that cover, press the button, and the engine roars to life like nothing you’ve ever heard before. It’s that exact sound that gets enthusiast’s heart pumping. Other than the harsh city ride, and the blazing performance, there’s not too much else I’m able to share about how this raging bull drives, handles, or feels behind the wheel, but what I can give you are some nice photos to drool over.
