FIVE YEARS into its life and next to no updates, Lamborghini’s heroic Aventador is at risk of not keeping up with the supercar Joneses. It’s still a piece of art to look at – the most strikingly-styled new car on-sale today – and its V12 is utterly incredible, but both are desperately in want of a 21st-century supercar chassis and transmission. The burly Lambo might also boast breathtaking acceleration and make an epic noise, but the ride is not befitting the price and the suspension and clunky shift-rod auto are both outdated.
A fresh interior wouldn’t look out of place, either. Thankfully we hear the big bull’s getting a major update in 2018. – DC SPECS 6.5L V12, 515KW/690NM, 16L/100KM, 1697KG PRICE $761,500
