You know how Lamborghini names its cars after bulls. The Aventador, the newest and most powerful machine to come out of Sant'Agata, is named after the most courageous of bulls, the bull with the biggest... Well, it certainly takes some attachments to try and tame 700 hp and 509 lb-ft of torque, all wrapped in high-tech lightweight materials so it can whizz from nothing to 60 mph in just 2.8 seconds and hit a top speed of 217 mph. The V12-equipped, all-wheel-drive Aventador displaces the Murciélago as Lambo's flagship supercar, and only a few nuts and bolts have been carried over, according to the company, although it still employs retractable air vents mounted into the rear pillar. American buyers can expect to see their new ride from October, once they have written a check for $370,000. Which, as it turns out, can be considered something of a steal. The Bugatti Veyron, for example, does 60 mph in 2.5 seconds and maxes out at 253 mph, but how many people are really going to accelerate and run top speeds like that? And pay $1.6 million for the privilege?
