PIC OF THE WEEK: AVENTADOR IN LONDON
An Aventador on a murky evening in Park Lane makes for pic heaven
You can look at pictures of big Lamborghinis all day long, and still be struck dumb when one rumbles past you, all razor-sharp edges and jagged detailing. Almost without exception, these are 'look at me' cars, so photographing one in front of a 'look at me' building - in this case, the glossy art deco facade of 45 Park Lane - seems fitting. Especially when night is falling, and there's a shroud of fog adding to the atmosphere of such a shot.
This particular Aventador has been tweaked by prestige car tuning firm Oakley Design - hence the adjustable rear spoiler and even wider alloys. What you can't see is that it's had an ECU remap and a new sports exhaust system, both of which bring the power up to 760hp. Reasonable to assume that it's quite nippy, then.
Thanks to Alex Penfold for the pic.
