James May. Three Lambo Aventadors
What’s better than one new Lamborghini? Three, obviously, with Captain Slow and 100 miles of empty roads...

Whenever I see an Alfa Romeo drive by,” said Henry Ford, “I tip my hat.”
If I wore a hat, I’d also tip it at any Lamborghini that drives by. Since I don’t, I usually just smile to myself or maybe even applaud the driver lightly. Thank God there are Lamborghini owners in the world, bringing these absurdist performance artworks, this automotive pageantry, out onto the streets for the rest of us to enjoy. Lambos are the perfect riposte to po-faced Ferraris and overpowered German executive saloons, and no matter how good the day already is, it improves on the appearance of a Lambo.
