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

Drop it down a few cogs for a truly ballistic passing manoeuvre, and something else interesting happens. As the power piles in, the front shimmies slightly before settling down and providing lovely meaty but fast-acting steering feel. It's a fleeting thing, this, but feels like an intimacy. It's lovely.
The ride, unsurprisingly, is pretty tough, even in the Strada setting. But it's a sophisticated sort of firmness, born, I suspect, from the rigidity of the bodyshell (a carbon-fibre monocoque with aluminium used for the opening bits), which, as we know, frees the suspension engineer to do his best work without having to accommodate the bendiness of the superstructure.
