There’s a problem with Lamborghini’s display: You’re in danger of having your lust for auto erotica sated in one stop.
Any of the three exotic machines would suffice as a star in its own right. One has, in fact, already made its debut in a top-grossing Hollywood blockbuster. It is the very same Aventador LP700-4 driven by Christian Bale in Bruce Wayne guise during the epic Batman film The Dark Knight Rises.
It says much for the raging bull car’s aggressive styling that it could be used without visual enhancement next to the fantasy vehicles in which the Caped Crusader typically surges about Gotham. As Lamborghini’s new flagship, the Aventador is a fitting replacement for the Murcielagos driven in the previous parts of the trilogy.
Indeed, at $754,000, the LP700-4 is the zenith of Lamborghini’s range. The jet fighter-styled road rocket packs a lightweight 60- degree V12 engine that gets it from standing to 100km/h in 2.9 seconds. The supporting cast doesn’t lack lustre.
The star turn is flanked by two special edition Gallardos: a 550-2 Tricolore and a 570-4 Spyder Performante. “We are excited Lamborghini will be displaying their newest and most popular models in Sydney, as well as debuting an all-new stand design,” says show director Russ Tyrie.
