I don't think the Aventador does... but the good ol' Murcielago did. See those little scoops above the rear tail lights? Those pop up when the car gains speed.



I've always been a huge fan of Lamborghini. The Reventon remains to be my ultimate dream car, which is more or less an earlier concept of the Aventador.



I probably wouldn't hesitate for one second to donate an organ to own one of these.

Yeah the general shape of the car has remained unchanged. You could argue that Audi is the same way. It's not necessarily a bad thing if you like its overall design. I personally like the Reventon because its design is so radically different with its sharp angles (F22 fighter jet influence). But I otherwise agree that a lot of the models look very similar.

I also don't know what the hell the differences are between the different "LP" number designations. I know there's a reason behind some of the numbers (indicating RWD/AWD and number of cylinders or horsepower?). After a while it's just hard to tell what the hell is what though. I can see why a lot of people would roll their eyes and think they're all the same.

An Evo is awesome because it's extremely versatile. You can take it to the track, off the road, and also have a fun daily driver. A Lamborghini would make a terrible daily driver. For starters it has a separate button for Reverse gear. The turning radius is ridiculously large. Ride comfort is pretty much nonexistant. And throttle responsiveness can be extremely twitchy.

It's nothing more than a big toy. It falls in the same category as a Corvette. Most people don't realize these things when they look at a true sports car. They think that just because it looks cool that it would be perfect for them. But when they get into one they'll probably start to get annoyed by its many quirks and quickly change their mind.
