The road leading up to this clear picture of the amazing new Lamborghini Aventador has been months long. It started with just a grainy blip in the desert followed by plenty of guess-work renderings and paint jobs made of black and white swirlies.
These spy shots and renderings, however, were a bit disappointing in our opinion; they made the car looked far too similar to the Murcielago and we wanted something new and sharp. The reality is that Lamborghini isn’t known for departing to heavily from their vehicle styling in recent years. But that couldn’t stop us from secretly hoping that we’d see something totally different.
With all of that criteria in mind, you would think that we’d be bored and disappointed with the Aventador. But no. No, no, no. The Aventador is nothing short of astonishing. That sharp, dangerous, jagged look that Lamborghini is best at is basically perfected and the red paint job is essentially middle finger to Ferrari. It’s basically the same as if you were driving Brad Pitt the day he got married to Angelina Jolie. Ferrari (Jennifer Aniston) has got to be pissed.
Stupid celebrity references aside, to see this car fully undressed has been a long time coming, but we think it was worth the build up in the end. Expect to see a flood of pictures when the Lamborghini Aventador is officially unveiled at next week’s Geneva Auto Show.
