Pic Of The Week: Aventador Roadster


OK, so this is the digital equivalent of that dog-eared Countach poster you may well have had on your bedroom wall a couple of decades back. But it serves the same purpose as, indeed, does the new Aventador Roadster.

Interesting that when we took its coupe brother out for a day to meet drivers of the V12 Lambosthat came before it pretty much all the owners had started their love affair with the brand in this way. And that's exactly the appeal of a Lamborghini - they exude that 'cor blimey' excitement that everyone from nine-year-olds to 90-year-olds can understand.

Ferrari does the trading on decades of racing heritage thing. McLaren the cool, technological F1 lineage stuff. Porsche the supercar you can buy with your heart and your head and realistically drive every day. But, let's face it, when it comes to cars like this you still want that 'oof!' factor. And there could only be one contender for this week's image of choice...

Enjoy!

    My old mate Dave, the dustman, always reckoned, that the best car, was the one that when you drove it past a bus stop, all the girls wanted to have sex with the driver !! Seems a reasonable criteria to me !! This I think would score high on that test.

    Looks like a potential Batmobil!

    That being said..Its a looney V12 Lambo. You cant be called a Petrolhead if you anything but love them!

    I'd like to think so to, but you'd have to ask a woman rather than Dave for confirmation.

    lovely car. awful photo.

    Whoever cropped the original image, managed to cut off a little of the car in every single version.

    LOL! Whilst I love the Aventador and it would be one of my dream cars to own - I think women go for more subtle cars style wise. I bet most women would be more impressed with an Aston than this. Remember Kristen Scott - Thomas' reaction to Clarksons Gallardo?
