Which Aventador does Edmunds recommend?
Even if they've gotten much more civilized in recent times, Lamborghinis have always had a reputation for driving like a proverbial bull in a china shop. They're low to the ground, have limited sight lines and stiff suspension, and are both physically and visually loud, as well as require the driver to adapt to the car. Having said that, all Aventadors benefit from Lamborghini's custom-order program and feature modern touches such as navigation and launch control.
Edmunds' Expert Review
Non-turbocharged V12s are dying out. Thankfully, the Aventador arguably has the best. It's inherently smooth and insanely powerful, and the shriek from the exhaust and intake at 8,000 rpm is to be savored. Steering is heavy and direct, and the gear changes race carlike.
The Aventador is not a touring car, but the cockpit and controls are laid out logically and it's actually easy to just get in and operate. Ergonomically, it's a race car, and the sound signature may not be appreciated by your neighbors.
Do you like cockpit-like interiors? If so, the Aventador should satisfy you. You interface with the car through loads of mechanical switches. Then there are the swing-up doors. They look great but don't really make it easier to get in or out.
There's no convenient place to put your wallet or purse and phone (which cannot be in your pocket), and the front trunk is small. But utility is not why you're buying an Aventador.
Technology is all over the place on the Aventador, but most of it is there to service the driving experience. We're just thankful it has a stereo and Bluetooth.
