So, you just hit it big and fell face first into money! If you’re me, the first thing I do is go buy myself a brand new super car. Lamborghini or Ferrari? That is the timeless question that would need answering. For the longest time I would say Ferrari hands down… not even a competition. But Lamborghini has been doing incredible things the last few years and that question is now a very intriguing one. Lamborghini or Ferrari?
This car that you looked at before you even started to read a word of this is called the Lamborghini Aventador. It’s brand new and it’s currently one of, if not my favorite Lamborghini. After you sell your liver and a kidney and some other stupid useless body parts, you can make a down payment on your Aventador. But who am I kidding? I would write a check for the exact amount of $387,000. But don’t worry about that, if you live in Chicago like many of you reading this, the tax on that will be triple the cost of the car.
Around 4,000 Aventadors will be produced. If you’re lucky enough to get yourself in the driver’s seat, here are some of the fun things you get. A seven speed single clutch gearbox with gear changes so fast you may throw out your back like a old man picking up his socks. 6.5 Liter V12 producing 690HP and 510 Torque… 0 to 62 MPH in 2.9 seconds and a top speed of 220 for when you’re bored on the highway.
Cars like this fall into a category where you almost can’t go wrong. No matter what you buy you get something basically just as fast. But there is the cool factor you need to take into account. This car is COOL! It has the break your next swag that every super car needs. If I fell face first into a pile of money, this would test my love for Ferrari. As for what car I would actually buy, I guess you need to peek into my Jay Leno sized garage and see what’s inside.
