2017 Lamborghini Aventador Summary

Lamborghini's Aventador S is the last living link to supercars of old. Wild-looking bedroom-poster material, gigantic anti-socially loud V12 that actually spits flame and the kind of performance that will rustle the jimmies of even a seasoned supercar driver.

It harks back to a time when supercars actually sucked, but it didn't matter because they were proof you had both the money and patience to nurse it into life and then wring its neck, because that was the only way it made any sense. While the Huracan is a thoroughly modern supercar, the Aventador is an unashamed, unabashed, hairy-chested, head-banging, rock ape.

2022 Mercedes-Benz E-Class Summary

For all the glitz, glamour, and breadth of the Mercedes-Benz passenger car range, it's nice to see the E-Class sedan, to many, the Mercedes-Benz, still persevere.

While Benz has re-invented its small cars and SUVs multiple times to stay up to date with global trends, the E-Class has soldiered on for the brand's faithful in the same form it always has, only now the time has come for its gradual steps into electrification.

Dubbed the E 300 e, this plug-in hybrid variant aims to offer some of the experience of an electric car with all of the experience of Mercedes’ renowned executive sedan.

But does this electric update improve the core Mercedes experience or only work to compromise it?

I took this latest version for a week to find out.
