Lamborghini Aventador LP700-4 in Sydney
It’s always great finally seeing a new car on the road, but with Lamborghini’s it’s a different story, it’s just a bit more exciting.
Two weeks ago I saw the new Ferrari FF for the first time on the Sydney streets, which was good, I took a few snapshots but yesterday was a different experience seeing the Aventador.
Walking past the Hilton Hotel in Sydney I caught a glimpse of the Aventador and next thing I knew it was 40 minutes and 100 photos later. Luckily the Hilton valet is quite a nice spot for photos (and after spending 40 minutes there the valet guys are good company as well) and it also helps being trigger-happy.
The Aventador definitely turned a lot of heads, something the Ferrari FF didn’t do as much, but it’s a totally different level so I’m comparing apples and oranges here. The new Ferrari F12Berlinetta will probably be a different story and will create a bigger stir when it comes on the market.
Still to this day the Lamborghini scissor doors are something quite special. See them go up right before the V12 starts and you know this is a rare sighting. Then hearing the car drive off and seeing it in Sydney traffic causes goosebumps. This grey, rainy Saturday afternoon just got a whole lot better!
