Top Gear runs Heathrow Airport for a day
Another classic from 20 years of TG mag: the time we took an Aventador to our biggest airport...
Posted: 24 Oct 2013
The Lamborghini Aventador was obviously the first thing that sprung to mind. It's possible to have one in the correct colour - Giallo Orion, if you're feeling a bit Italian - and, luckily, a suitably painted car had just arrived in the UK. Lights and stripes were only a phone call away. And, with 690bhp, it has just enough enthusiasm to move briskly across a runway. There's even enough storage for a pair of those bright ping-pong bats they wave at pilots looking for somewhere to park. There's just one problem. With a substantial V12 in the middle, plus bodywork designed using only a set square, it's not the easiest thing to see out of.
