Was in the May episode of TG India, I guess.
Had a chance to see the Aventador at the showroom. Must say it looks quite the beast. Here's a pic

Naturally made horse power - means horse power from naturally aspirated engine. I think that's what he meant.

Even I had the same thought but got confused considering there's so much unknown in this automotive world that I thought this one to be some new stuff.
IMO naturally aspirated engines are best but perhaps only in terms of their simplicity as compared to those with a super / turbo chargers slapped on top, but when it comes to the noise / devilish-launch, I think the latter ones are the rulers.

The naturally aspirated engines are more responsive and linear in their power delivery. As a result, they are easier to drive than a force-fed engine (in normal road cars). The same applies to the launch. A turbocharged engine requires greater precision to be launched fast, without launch control.
As far as noise is concerned, the turbos muffle the noise a little bit, but sound brilliant on the overrun or liftoff. Superchargers sound fantastic, especially the one on the McLaren SLR. But my personal favorites when it comes to modern engine noises are two brilliant naturally aspirated engines: The 5.7L V10 from the Carrera GT and the mighty V12 of the LP640
P.S. I do NOT intend to start a debate here.

Quite right but theres more to it. We all share and learn.

Well put together.

Just to see things in practical terms, its like putting the GT2 RS against the GT3 RS 4.0.. The former is Faster, while the latter is Purer. I'd pick the latter.

The car looks amazing in the Matt black paint! Stunning. I wonder why it is being unloaded in packed public place, it will take a while for cleaning all those finger prints

The car is headed for the outskirts of the city, maybe that explains the surroundings

This car has been delivered to a famous guy in Virar. (North Mumbai)

And its the same person who owns the Hummer H1 with no H1 and G Wagon.

It can easily pass off as the more expensive and more exclusive Lamborghini Reventón in that shade of matte black. Mean looking beast and probably what every Lamborghini wishes to be when they grow up.

Yup, that's right. The matte black Aventador has been delivered to the same guy with the G55 AMG, F10 M5, Hummer H1 in Virar.(not mentioning his name due to t-bhp rules). It was delivered two days ago. Car looks very good in that shade. Based on certain things I have heard, I just hope the car is taken good care of.

Gulp! Nero Nemesis is here?

I am going weak in my knees, this IMO, is the absolute best shade for the Avent. It just works with the stealth-bomber design.

I heard one each was coming to Delhi and Mumbai, but I was expecting the Delhi one first.

Now let's have a Verde Ithaca, please?
