THIS is the new Lamborghini with gear changes in under 50 milliseconds – that’s six times quicker than you can BLINK.
It will take you even less time than that to fall in love with this £250,000 jaw-dropping, heart-pumping, wallet-draining drop-top.
The Aventador S is the Roadster version of the stonking supercar and has the same V12 engine which will hit 217mph if you can find somewhere to avoid the Rozzers.
The best thing about a lidless Lambo is that you can get the full burble spitting roar of the 740bhp ringing round your lugholes. There’s even a button to drop the rear window for more aural pleasure.
The £250,000 monster has the option to fit transparent engine body panels so you can see the 6.5-litre engine at work.
For the mega-rich Lamborghini offers its “virtually limitless” Ad Personam programme on the Aventador.
It means if the carbon fibre inserts, ocean blue paint and Alcantara interior aren’t plush enough you can personalise to your heart’s content.
On the road the Aventador S gets new four-wheel steering and suspension systems and an EGO driving mode to improve handling.
Gear changes are machine gun fast – the flappy paddle system shifting in under 50 milliseconds – that’s six times quicker than you can blink.
The roof has to be removed manually but will store in the boot – which is actually under the bonnet – with the engine mounted at the rear.
And at just 6kg you won’t need to employ Arnie Schwarzenegger to help you.
If the stunning performance and gorgeous bodywork aren’t enough to entice you to open the chequebook, then Lamborghini has made sure you can actually use the car on a day-to-day basis.
Apple CarPlay is standard, there’s a digital dashboard and more buttons and gadgets on the centre console than is perhaps necessary.
Just a shame about the quarter of a mill price tag. Let’s hope they do a decent finance deal on this Lambo.
With decent part-ex on a Corsa, obviously.
