From now on, I'm starting a countdown clock from the launch of a new supercar to its first crash. I'm actually surprised it took this long to see how well the Lamborghini Aventador would survive an impact with a few poles.
Lamborghini's new V12 flagship — the Aventador LP 700-4 — is a monumental leap forward from its previous top model, the Múrcielago. It's lighter, faster, more powerful, easier to drive and still edgy as hell. Is it the world's best value for supercar money?
The rich are different from us; they've got the cash and the purchasing history to snap the latest supercars out from under us plebes.

Call it the Aventador, call it the Jota, just don't call it late for the quarter-mile. The official specs and ordering guide to Lamborghini's LP700-4 have leaked via Teamspeed. Fast, colorful and lots of options. Lambo city.
