Most of us, if we were asked to vote in a podium of ‘in your face’ car makers, would put Lamborghini on there. Indeed, many of us would put Lamborghini on the topmost step.
Ferraris might be seen as more rounded in terms of all-round performance and usability, but there’s just something wonderfully mad and exuberant about the ‘other’ Italian supercar brand.
The Lamborghini proposition starts with hard-man styling, adds bonkers amounts of power and tops the whole thing off with incredible sounds – as you might just notice from this bunch of action videos.
Turn it up to eleven, if you’ve got that on your volume settings, and enjoy.
Lamborghini Aventador S
Few would have thought that the Aventador needed more power, but the new one has it, along with sharper steering and more adjustability in its handling. We give it a go to see if the mods have updated the experience.
Jumping a Lamborghini Aventador
Leaping Lamborghinis off launch pads at mad speeds is not something most owners would do, so we did it to save them the bother. Not only that, we’ve made it a flying comparison test between the Aventador and Aventador Roadster.
Lamborghini Aventador v Porsche 911 GT2 RS v Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG
You rarely see these three cars in the same county, let alone the same test track. Here we’ve set up a straight drag race between Mercedes’ thundering SLS, Porsche’s razor-like GT2 RS and Lamborghini’s howling V12-powered Aventador. The result may surprise you.
Lamborghini Murcielago SV v Chevrolet Corvette ZR1
A few years back, Chevrolet’s 638bhp ZR1 Corvette was one of the quickest cars on the road. It still is. Lamborghini’s stripped-back, powered-up Murcielago SV was even gruntier than the Chevy, with 663bhp. Which provided the most spectacular drive?
Lamborghini Gallardo – with the traction control off
You’d be amazed at the effect of switching off your electronic stability control system. We were when we did exactly that on a Lamborghini Gallardo just before executing a radical lane-change manoeuvre at 70mph. This is a sobering sight.
