Well, this guy speaks horrible english. Even more so for someone who was on the list for a preview of a Lambo

And the short "review" he has put up sounds like a Zigwheels review
"I for my part" "engine sound is great & impressive" "but remembered me somewhat"

@Xehaust I know thats terrible english,but this understandable because he is German and a big shot collector.

Here's another first person review and this guy is a big lamborghini importer and dealer in america

Quote:
I am not a lover of the wheels at all

I am a bit disappointed with the door opening method, both the way they open..(button electric) and the route, out a bit then up all the way to a 90 degree angle..allows, so the factory says, for taller people in the car..exit/entry.. HOWEVER..my research shows it was a DOT requirment as they are hitting the magic mark of 5000 copies of the "Murcie". With
this they loose their "small" manufacture status...brings all new safety things into play..one being the doors must open if the car is on its roof in an accident..which these new style will do as they kick out...like the Mercedes and other "gull" wing type cars..so for me I miss the real pop up doors and the grab them and pull them open or pull them down to close.

As far as all the sharp lines and the use of a lot of LED (front headlights..etc)..again to me it takes away from the flowing shape of the car..but again, that was just like when the Murcie first came out...we had the 2001 Diablo to hold it against..and like all things it took a bit to fall in love with it..at least for me.

The interior is bigger and the rear shelf for golf clubs or luggage...well again for me takes away from the old "tucked" in a cock pit feeling. But for others it will be good as they have way more room, as well as increased headroom. The seat is more on center with the steering wheel..which is a good thing.

I cant speak to the performance as I have not driven one..but to go froma 670 HP SV to a 700 HP car..well it is more, but it is ONLY 30HP and the weight is very similar to the current 670SV..so a VAST up charge from a 640, yes, from a 670 no.

And it goes with out saying that the lack of a true 6 speed for the car, IMO, just takes the fun out of operating the car..might as well just have a "push button" start (which it does) and a joy stick computer operated system.

All in all I think the car takes a great leap forward..may just take an old dog like me a bit to wrap myself around it and call it an "experience" to operate. I just think ALL the new cars are so operator "lack" of effort..that they are becoming a plane on the ground that is only lacking "auto pilot".

I can say that for now..the SV is still my choice and I hope to take it to 100K miles at the least, it has been one of my top 3 favorite cars of all time. With it being the approx same price as the new car when it hits the ground, I feel I have enjoyed the best of the best 2 years earlier while all others have waited for this new car, (I bought my SV in July 2009).

I also have just never been a buyer of a "first" year run car. I prefer to see all the kinks worked out after a few cars get "real" road time and info goes back to the engineers and the factory. I can guarantee you the 2013 car will have many changes and improvements..after all this is a new platform to build on and increase from...if not...no one would buy the "next" years variant.

On the bright side, I do believe this car will be one of the first Lambo's in a LONG time that WILL sell out and WILL demand "over" sticker price for a car..IF you can get one.

Guys here is a video of the Aventador being tested. The engine has got a sort of growl to it.
Im sure this is not the final music from the v12.

And mods please take not that I initially started the thread for the Aventador or the initially named Jota.
So please change the title and we can have a seperate thread for the sesto elemento and you can also merge this with the 700bhp engine thread with this one.

And here is another possibility of how the Aventador might look.

A new spy pic of the Aventador has emerged! Looks very mean! I love the side profile and that Reventon inspired front.
