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

Great, long sweepers are dispatched in the curling echo of a V12, etc., etc., etc. It's exciting, it feels planted.
What really amazes me, though, is that the Aventador is just so damned civilised. The engine delivers its muted howl, it transmits enough fascinating tremors through the buttocks and fingertips, it nags away behind your head very slightly. But it's never granular, or intrusive, and it never booms. It's a creamy soup with a few interesting solid bits in it. This Lambo is relaxing.
