Not sure, will have to wait till Sunday, but i guess his LP 560-4 would be in Delhi. Yes, the guy in Blue is him & the other guy in the pic i believe would be turning up in his Orange LP 560-4 Spyder. If i remember correctly his Gallardo & Maserati had participated in the rally 2 yrs ago.

Saw the orange Aventador zooming around town last night.

It was being followed by an R8 spyder and the White/black 458. Fun times.

^^^^^ Good for Autocar India, I can only imagine the guy's excitement. I'm guessing this is by far, the most exotic car they've ever tested?

Takes guts to take a 700BHP car down that winding highway.

Meanwhile, here's a little something I did at the Parx Supercar Rally. Hope the admins don't mind me posting it here:

The Aventador was taken to Nashik as mentioned by Autocar in the drive review in February's Autocar India magazine. So Karjat does not quite seem right. Good Review nevertheless.

I may sound strange but the more the Autocar presenter praised the Aventador, the more I began wondering- why have all these supercar manufacturers just switched over to having fancy auto gearboxes in their cars. Call me old-school but I would take a Countach/ Diablo with basic interiors (rather than an Apollo 11 cockpit) and a manual transmission mated to an earth shattering V12, over the technological advanced Aventador.

PS: I have not driven a supercar yet but a manual is a manual irrespective of how good the auto box is and I love changing my gears.

This coming from an ex-Diablo owner: The gearbox in the Diablo is 100000000 times worse than in the Aventador. Trust me, the Diablo was one of the most difficult cars I have ever owned! That said, I test drove the Aventador the other day, and It doesnt hold a candle to my 458 in terms of excitement. In terms of sheer power though, it is marginally ahead!

Thanks for sharing your firsthand experience,

I believe, I am one of the biggest Lambo aficionados and advocates on this forum and yet I have to admit, as much as the Aventador being technologically superior and possibly the closest road-going thing you can own to a B-2 Stealth Bomber, for the sheer pin-up factor, I think it doesn't hold a torch to the Miura, Countach, Diablo or even the Murcielago for that matter.

And, as far as comparing the LP700 to the 458, well it's not justified either way. The LP700 is eons ahead of the 458 in terms of figures, so the comparison is rendered pointless. Neither does the reverse comparison hold ground cos where the 458 is like a precision surgical tool, and the LP700 like a pile driver. IMO Super and Hypercars should never be compared.

As the Gallardo basically is almost as old as the 360, for a fair comparison with the 458, we'd have to wait until the Cabrera LP600-4 comes by

That's quite an eye-opener. Just marginal ?
The Bull's figures are way ahead of the horse's.
691 vs 562 power & 690nm vs 540nm torque. (i heard the aventador's single-clutch tranny is a bit of a let down despite Lambo officials saying it adds 'soul' to the car)
Performance figures on paper too suggest that the aventador should be quite quicker across the powerband.
Real world its a lot closer i guess ?

The road that this image is clicked on is the road that leads to my friend's farm in Karjat.
