Lamborghini took a different approach when creating the Aventador, instead of just worrying about top speed, they focused on the handling first. The LP 700-4 (Aventador) does not lack in the power department however. With a 6.5L V12 pumping out 691bhp and 510 lb-ft of torque, it tops out at 217mph and goes 0-60mph in 2.9 seconds.
The Aventador was made to replace the Murcielago as the flagship vehicle for Lamborghini and the Aventador has not disappointed. With it’s wonderful handling, power engine and damn good looks, the Aventador made it around the Top Gear Test Track in 1.16.5 seconds to put it at third place, beating the Bugatti Veyron.
