5. People pay attention to Aventadors

By the time I packed up and left, more than a few people had a chance to inspect Lamborghini’s flagship model. It was probably a closer look than any of them ever expected to have at what is, frankly, a ridiculous automobile.

And while I’m being frank, the weekend I spent driving it was a far more intimate experience than I ever imagined enjoying with anything bearing that badge.

Nobody needs a Lamborghini. You don’t. It just isn’t necessary. But as I lifted the red cover from the ignition button, something surprising happened. A small crowd armed with cell phones gathered to watch the car roll away and in that I moment finally came to understand something. The Aventador is as much about capturing imagination as it is about raw power, top speeds and taking your breath away during launches that happen with mind-bending power.
