It’s Thank you for the A2A. In my very honest experience,, absolutely not,. Several factors make me say that. There’s barely any space in the car. There are a few videos you can watch on YouTube that describe what I’m about to say in a more fun way. Bottom line, there’s barely any space whatsoever, for your phone, your keys and so on. It’s got a frunk of some decent capacity, but it’s only good for a laptop bag or 2 small grocery bags at best. I remember being parked outside WholeFoods and a guy making fun of me: “Always knew this were great family cars mate”. In a Huracan, you can open the frunk with the key, not in an Aventador. Open the car door on the driver side, bend over, and pull the latch. That pops it up, then reach in, and open. Takes 2 minutes every time. There’s not even a space to put your crappy Audi copied Lambo key, and if you need GPS, Lambo’s onboard one is useless. You have to keep your phone between your legs, and literally every time you get out of the car you end up searching for your phone and your key under the seats. Fun to watch I imagine, since it gets a lot of stares in parking lots. It’s just reflex, on your knees, stand sideways to the car, and start searching. Night time it’s extra fun doing this routine. On a positive upside, you’re greeted by this as you head back with your groceries, which almost makes it fun and worth it. This wouldn’t be the car to do your weekly shop in, but I did try it that one time. Speaks to daily drive ability though. Here’s TGE, an automotive YouTuber, who’s to my knowledge gone through several Lambos, SV, S etc, and speaking to him he’s got an SVJ on order, so kudos to him for loving the fun more than the hassle. The car gets an insane amount of attention. All supercars do, it’s part of the fun, but Lamborghinis just have something about them that turn every single head on the road. People have various reactions to your purchasing choices, and most of them are unfortunately, shall we call them competitive. Van drivers will literally try to race you, cars will cut in front of you more, people won’t care to respect normal traffic rules and ignore basic traffic priorities, just because of what you are driving. It’s so insanely loud everyone will hear you coming. Strada mode is there sure, but then what’s the point of a lambo anymore. Watch this review by Mr DeMuro. One time I was stopped at a traffic light, first in line, stopped perfectly on the line. Someone overtook me, went in front, over the line, to prove some kind of twisted point I guess. I can tell you 1 million stories like that. You can’t park or drive through 99% of places The attention it gets is just way too insane. In a busy area, forget it. One time I found a photo shoot taking place with my car, with female models and everything. This I guess wasn’t too bad :) Another time, while street parked, a guy had stacked up boxes of his clothing company’s items on top of my car for a photoshoot, literally wtf. Every 2 seconds another passer by is going to take a photo of it, and mostly with it, and it’s a fun experience to share, but as an owner it’s deeply stressful, because any second of someone not paying attention is an opportunity for a £10 - £15k triple layer paint correction bill. People take photos of you, they hold you at traffic lights, pedestrian crossings, get dangerously close to you on motor ways, undertake you in the wrong lane to get in front, and so on. I could be doing 150mph illegally on a motorway and I swear some guy in a Prius will still try to overtake. There’s plenty of people on Quora who will say the same thing. It’s great fun for tunnel sounds though. It’s very very uncomfortable Even if you get the comfy seats, it’s a very uncomfortable car. I had carbon fibre bucket seats in the SV, not a place to be for more than 2 hours. The upside is it does keep you perfectly straight, with no room to wiggle, which is good if your back hurts. However, it won’t take long before every single muscle in your body will start to hurt. The seats are about 1 inch thick, with no cushion to them. You are literally hugged by carbon fibre. You also touch the pedals at an unusual angle, so your legs are in this weird, non 90 degree angle, which adds to the pain. The car is also extremely low to the ground, when you watch nice YouTube videos driving at high speed this is carefully masked away, yet it’s actually the biggest factor of all when driving. You have to constantly, 100% of the time, keep your eyes straight on the road, and use the lift system, or you will scrape the front. Wanna guess what a repair costs? I don’t. Most of the time, you have to drive a lot slower than any other car, for this very reason. You feel every single bump 10x in a Ford Fiesta, and in the SV you quite literally feel the paint on the road. It’s absolutely insane just how uncomfortable it is, and after 3 hours you are simply screaming to get out. If you get into any normal car after, you will feel like you’re in heaven. The single plate gearbox will make you jump with every shift. You get used to it, but it’s uncomfortable. This is me behind a wheel, friend filming. Watch the gear changes, you feel that at every change in low speed, feels stuck between gears. Moreover, there’s very little sound proofing, so after 1 hour you literally start to “hear” things, because all the usual noises are so heavily amplified. It’s not actually that great of a car You might look at Lamborghini as a brand and think it makes the fastest and most powerful cars of all. In reality, many many specialists don’t actually rate it that highly as a track car. Don’t look at the YouTube channels with a million subscribers, those guys cannot afford to say anything bad or Volkswagen Corporate won’t lend them another car ever.(Yes Volkswagen owns Audi which owns Lambo). The truth is the main thing you get with a Lambo is drama. It’s probably hard to explain, but it’s exactly what a child would describe a supercar to be like. It’s very loud, fast, menacing, turns heads, it looks like a million bucks. There’s a lot of appeal and magic to this, and to some people it may outweigh all the downsides. But in reality, strictly performance, manoeuvrability, suspension, brakes, track performance, and so on, are quite easy to beat with the competition. So even if you’re sitting on millions in bank, if you want the best possible overall car, there’s really no reason at all to buy a Lambo. The Huracan Performante will destroy the Aventador on all categories except looks for a lot less money. The McLaren 720S will make any Aventador feel like a golf cart, for 40% less money. And that’s the feeling I got in it, it costs way more money than a 720S, it’s comically impractical, but there’s 1 - 1.5 seconds of throttle response delay, the front is extremely wobbly and not very stable, the power delivery is fun, but nowhere near scary. Seriously have a look, and this is comparing the SV Aventador, the crazy one, with the “standard”, non LT 720S. It’s a humiliation in every sense, an RWD car fading in the distance off the line vs a 4WD Aventador SV. 720S has electric heated seats, perfect visibility, bluetooth, high end audio, less horse power(on paper), and it’s a car you can comfortably do 2k miles in straight if you wanted to. McLaren engineers rare simply godlike, Lamborghini ones are the McLaren rejects. It’s the noise that makes you think “holy crap” I’m going fast, but in reality I’d be driving comfortably at twice that speed in a Tesla, on the exact same road. The compromises also make no sense. They removed the cup holder and filled all the space in the centre console, but in reality that would have 0 aerodynamic impact etc. No bluetooth and crappy speakers is just lazy engineering, since you do have audio anyway, it’s not like they are weight saving. And that’s what you’re going to think about every single compromise, it makes no sense. You’re not buying a 4x4 family car, and you expect it to be compromised, but you also expect some performance, looks, aerodynamics, something for your trouble, and that’s the oddity in a Lambo, you don’t really get anything but some notion of strange “bragging rights”. “Look how track focused my car is”, when in reality less than 1% of owners will ever track their cars and the things you do get don’t really make a track focused car at all. It’s massive, heavy, very wide, completely wobbly and unstable, the gear changes are so brutal they can literally throw the car sideways in a corner, and so on. A 4000lbs 2m wide Lambo sold as a super light track car is just total bs, serious lap times in Aventadors take place only in shooting marketing videos at the Nurburgring, with drivers crazy enough to take them, and tires you can never buy as a “civilian”. As an “average” owner, it’s seriously dangerous to extract anywhere near the performance advertised, the car is just not planted and you can lose the front end easily, in spite of the 4WD and weight. To quote a YouTuber, Lamborghini doesn’t make supercars, Lamborghini makes Lamborghinis, and I think that’s a very important easy to ignore aspect. Visibility and manoeuvrability are beyond terrible Again one of those points where you might say “so what, aren’t all supercars impractical?”. Very true, but this is one more vertical where an Aventador is in a league of its own. Visibility is quite likely the biggest of the two, but it’s properly scary to park your Aventador. Going to the mall parking lot? That takes proper balls, and getting out of 90% of all parking lots is a three person job. The rear pillars completely block the view, and there’s quite a lot of glare. It’s very very hard to park it properly, without touching the kerb and so on. Huracans are better, as they are far more nimble, but not great. A Lambo will automatically cut all audio when you go in reverse, so that tells you something right there, even the factory guys know how ridiculous it is. The turning radius is very big and the car is 2m wide, which means you simply cannot drive on most European roads, or at the very least in most cities. I only drove it at specific times through London, where it’s always full of traffic, and traffic calming road bumps. Every single bump, every single hole in the ground is one more opportunity for a £5k repair bill, or more. Squeezing through traffic is only for the bravest of all. You do get used to it, but it’s extremely scary, especially because most people feel this dumb urge to cut in front of you every single time they can. Driving at night time is not for the faint hearted. You are so low to the ground most beams from the cars behind go directly into your eye line, so the glare you get is very big. It’s easy to ignore this, but you’re basically half blind, in a very expensive massive car, it’s pretty frustrating and you don’t feel it’s an experience, you’re just dying to see it parked up. You need dry weather to drive it If it rains, then you’re really just gambling with your money. The first puddle deeper than half and inch you go through has a good chance of frying up some electronics, weird things happen. The first and last I ever went through that was deeper than a drop of rain caused the car to go crazy, the start stop system broke, I got all kinds of dash warnings, turned around and went home instead. I’ve never ever driven it through rain again. The visibility in the rain is another notch of crazy up. If you can’t see in crystal clear broad daylight, just dare to imagine what it’s like in pouring rain. All sane people will simply pull over, you just don’t stand a chance, you can’t see anything at all. I have a short video of it below, in a Huracan Spider not the SV. The tech inside is crap To add insult to injury, not only is it an enormous car, people constantly want to flip you off, and the visibility is terrible, there’s no 360 parking or any modern driving assistance systems. All you get is a sorry ass rear view camera from the 2000s. Did I mention it’s like £2k for that option? It’s really bad, and absolutely ancient, and worse than the standard camera on any Toyota. Judge for yourself. Lamborghini’s high end audio system, Sensonum, is an absolute joke. Every scrapyard purchase with a tape audio system will beat it, and I’m being very serious here. The SV has no bluetooth audio whatsoever, so you only get radio unless you use this weird 3 cable system. No USB ports either, just a single 12V port in the centre console. You do get a CD player though, on a 2015 car(wtf). You get radio for free, but it sounds beyond terrible, and doesn’t do enough to mask the outside noises(since there’s 0 sound proofing), and same thing for CD audio, you start to hear ringing noises in your ears after 2 hours. And the absolute killer feature? You have an iPhone 3 plug as your only smartphone feature. Yep that’s right, 2015 $500k car with an iPhone 3 connector, because people with $500k to spare upgrade everything but their phones, according to advanced research by Lamborghini. The hands-free audio is another wonder of the modern world, and I think they worked extra hard to make it this bad. Every hands-free phone conversation you will have in this car will be spoken in Klingon, good luck understanding a word of it. You just end up telling people you’ll call them later, which means you simply can’t touch this car on a workday, you have to be fully on it at all times. Cost would be insane These cars depreciate very heavily if you put miles on them. Most of the people who own one will put the car on the trailer nearly every single time they want to go “drive it in Italy”, or go to track, and this is the biggest reason. If you’re a first timer and not familiar with the extortionate cost of replacing brakes and pads, you might be tempted to floor it every chance you get, and use full brakes to come down to normal. That’s a young fool’s game, because in 3 miles Lambo will love you for the £25k ceramic disc replacement bill, £2k pads and so on. Sounds ridiculous? Have a look, it’s about £5k for every single ceramic disk, not including delivery or labour. Eurospares are the worldwide number 1 supplier of the complete range of new and used Lamborghini Aventador LP750-4 Coupe parts FRONT BRAKES DISCS CCB 077 Rear wheels are £655($800+) a piece. That’s not even funny. ,355,/30 R21 Pirellis or Michelins are nearly on par with a Bugatti Chiron(,365,/710 R 540) they are simply enormous. They need a big contact patch to put the power on the ground, but if you get one nail in the tires, and you need to replace both, son of a biscuit. You can’t have unevenly worn tires in a car of this power, add in labour, special order costs, your friendly local garage or dealership will invoice you £1500 - £1600(2k USD) for a nail in one tire. Supercar tires are expensive might be a very obvious point, but very few cars of equivalent HP need that big of a tire, and this is another angle where I personally think the Aventador is just not well engineered. Why else does a 720S McLaren “only” need 305 tires for way more performance feed to rear wheels only, and an all wheel drive car of lesser performance needs 355s? A rear wheel drive Koenisegg Regera, with 1900 BHP, has ,345/30, ZR 20 rear tires, smaller than an Aventador, for 2.5x the power feed only through the rear. Lambo engineering seems to like building Lego more than cars. Fuel economy You might say “you bought a Lambo what do you expect??” No one buys a supercar for fuel economy, but the Aventador is on a completely different league to all other cars, it’s just that much more thirsty. I dare say only F1 cars are in the same ballpark of 40 - 45L/100km or 5 - 6 miles a gallon. I joke with friends by saying while most cars come with fuel economy, this one doesn’t. There’s no way whatsoever to even view your consumption on the dashboard, it’s hidden well away somewhere 10 menu button clicks away, I never found it but legend has it it’s there. It’s common to average a max of 7 - 8mpg in urban traffic. That’s 35 - 40L/100km. This car drinks more than Charlie Sheen in a weekend in Vegas, even the oil rich Sheiks of Arabia would dread to daily this thirsty beast. It’s not even funny, you literally have to burn through a full tank in about 2 - 3 hours of mildy spirited Sunday driving, where you could get ~120 miles of range per tank without even trying to floor it every time you can. Look closely at the photo below. On the left is the fuel tank, at 50%. On the right, I have 60 miles of range left. SV has 90L capacity fuel tank. That means with 45 - 47L of fuel, you can do another ~95 kilometres or 60 miles. Floor it a bit and you will get to 50L per 100km easily. Ok so why did I buy it if I’m just complaining? Why buy it at the end of the day? 1) I didn’t know any better, and 2) to fulfil some long overdue childhood dream of owning your bedroom trophy wallpaper. Not really much else going for it, and I think even for the vastest majority of petrol heads owning a Lambo is a “temporary phase”, though I fully appreciate some people love the drama these cars bring to your life, and care a lot less about the running costs than I might. Conclusion: ,This is a 2k miles a year car at best, weekends, track days and things like that. Some people daily drive these cars, kudos to them, but I didn’t find it rewarding, it’s was actually quite frustrating, and offensively expensive. Overall, I don’t really recommend owning an Aventador, or at least it didn’t do it for me as a complete package. I’m a McLaren fanboy all the way, because the cars they make are on a completely different tier engineering wise, even if a lot of people don’t think they are “as fun”. They are so much more powerful they will shame any Lambo for way less cash, and with barely any compromise. Stick a Novitec exhaust on your 720S, and voilà, you have a killer machine. Full honesty, it seemed to me the only reason why you would want to own this car is the attention it gets and what people think of you, whether it’s the girl you’re trying to impress or friends or the random passer by. If you care a lot more about that than about having a real supercar, and if you’ve got the funds, that’s pretty much the only reason why you ever daily an Aventador, or own one for more than a few months. Rent one for a few days, and get it out of your system, that’s all you need.
