The Lamborghini Aventador is a car that feels even more sporty to drive than it looks, as we found out during our test drive. We got behind the wheel of a white LP700-4 which drew attention like a magnet everywhere we took it.
However, there will always be some who want even more visual drama and the tuning world is the answer for them. The perfect example of this lies in the adjacent image, which shows us an Aventador wrapped in Chrome Red.
Our own Sir May B. Bach points out that this looks more like Chrome Burgundy, but he dismisses such shades, so we won’t tell you more about his opinion on this.
The Ranging Bull is not just an eye-catcher it also comes with proper music to any petrolhead ears. Revving that beautiful 6.5-liter V12 engine is enough to offer pleasure for any speed enthusiast out there, but is it truly that great? Let us find out.
Known internally as the L539, the new engine is Lamborghini’s fourth in-house engine and second V12. It also is the first all-new V12 since the 3.5-liter powerplant found in the 350GT. That you may have heard of, but did you know the molds used to make the carbon-fiber monocoque are expected to last 500 units each, and only 8 have been made at all? That means the production is limited to 4,000 units.
A rare breed indeed, one that also comes with a price, of course. We’re talking about a stock tag of $393,695, but that’s way before you start looking into the goodies optional features offer. Yep, just another bull, only that this one fought particularly valiantly in the bull ring of Saragossa, Spain in 1993.
We don’t know about you, but if we will win the lottery anytime soon the first place we’ll stop by is one of the Lamborghini dealership in town. By: autoevolution
