Can’t work out if it’s any different to the current big Lambo.

For less than a 1/10th the price. Obviously your modern day supercar driver would put it in the nearest ditch but at least it’d be a colourful end.

I have driven that very car!

It was owned by the guy who built all the UK McDonalds; his business partner bought a silver one, he the upstaged him by buying it this lovely one.

What was it like?
back in my zymöl days; I didn’t get to drive it in anger, I did better than the photographer who also drove it but left the handbrake on! Much smoke and an unimpressed owner!

(a tip for anyone getting to drive one; the handbrake drops after you set it, you lift it to then press the button to release)

Those who say it's a missed opportunity, I tend to agree. Looked better in the photo's.

Countach is roughly the equivalent of Whoah in Italian, this is a bit more really? - A rework of an Aventador at best but certainly not the shock that the original LP400 was in the day to even now

Sacrilege! An environmental folly of the highest degree, worthless virtue-signalling. An unmolested one drinking petrol would surely be kinder to the planet.
Cars aren't good for the planet full stop ,electric cars are just the next generation for us to spend money on

Petrol bad , buy diesel , diesel bad ,buy petrol , petrol and diesel bad, buy electric, you're not spending enough money, diesel restricted, eventually to the point it'll be very expensive to drive it anywhere

The days of personal transport for the masses are coming to an end, even now the writing is on the wall with ever growing low emission zones, but if you're loaded carry on as you were, just pay us money to drive your diesel/petrol car wherever you want.

Look on the positive side... if that happens there will be few caravans on the road, and that's got to be good for everyone.
In my experience on A roads recently caravans aren't the problem, it's people driving at 42 in a 50 and 51 in a 60 with nobody overtaking so there's a line of cars all 10ft apart dawdling along so nobody can overtake

Well it’s irrelevant what we think a all 112 at 2 million a pop have now been sold.

I can't believe the amount of these specials that are being made and sold. Car makers must be wetting themselves with their ability to find customers gullible enough to part with £2m+ for a car that is essentially 10 years old underneath, dressed in new clothes. They are all at it though, Speedtail, Monza, Elva etc. What it proves is it's much easier to find <200 customers willing to pay £2m for a car than it is to find thousands to pay £150k+. Lamborghini have literally printed money with these. I imagine for the few that have one coming they aren't making the usual either/or choices and they are probably buying all the specials as money doesnt mean a great deal to them.

Whilst I think it is a little lazy to put the Aventador in a new frock, to my eyes it's easily the nicest looking Lambo of recent times. Nice clean design without the OTT wings, scoops and creases everywhere.

Those who buy will still turn a profit in 10 years time with milage still below 2k.

I am happy these cars are made as we only seem to see new versions of the 911 coming to market, and EVO magazine would have just mundane cars to write about.

Evo might as well be a Porsche fan mag. Every month it tests a 911 of some sort (it seems anyway).
This is the reason I stopped buying it years ago.
