Driving ImpressionsThere is nothing subtle about the 2012 Lamborghini Aventador and that description includes the ride. Underpinned by a Formula One-style racing suspension, the Aventador's shock absorbers are rock hard, so despite excellent, form-fitting seats, drivers will get jostled around on all but glass-smooth pavement. Ultra-wide tires give tremendous grip and huge, ceramic anti-lock disc brakes deliver jaw-dropping stopping power. Stability control keeps this rear-biased, mid-engine supercar from swapping ends due to injudicious brake application or throttle lifting mid-corner. A driver-selectable Drive Mode Select system with Strada (road), Sport (sporty road) and Corsa (track) settings varies transmission shift firmness, steering effort, throttle response and stability control responsiveness. Choose the Strada setting for date night and save Corsa for channeling your inner bull fighter.
