Words and pictures by Mark Dorman The Lamborghini Aventador is the latest incarnation of the Raging Bull's flagship vehicle. With styling cues borrowed from the limited production Reventón, this is one of the best-looking supercars on the market. With 690 brake horsepower on tap from a 6.5-liter V12 engine, a carbon fiber monocoque frame, F1-inspired suspension, and performance figures that rival the great Bugatti Veyron, what's not to love? The manufacturer’s suggested retail price on this Lambo is a steep $380,000. Too bad they've sold out for the next 18 months. You really have to see this car in person to appreciate its magnitude.
