That is the new Lamborghini Aventador. Now excuse me, I need some time alone and then I need to take down that old Countach poster...

In reply to Javelin:

I saw that on Autoblog. I'm not a big Lambo fan, but that profile makes me want to see other views. They said something about next Monday.....

Okay, I'll admit I still own my Countach poster, though I did sell off the 911 and Testarossa ones. This is going on the wall though, that side profile is knee-shakingingly beautiful.

That is awesome.

And I have BOTH my old Countach and 911 posters!!!

I thought I saw a 3/4 profile, front, and back view, plus a prototype (002 or 003!) driving impression in a magazine last month. Automobile?

Looked awesome.

I kind of agree, still, since the Countach design was so much more revolutionary at the time.

That said, they don't seem to have screwed anything up there. Seems like a natural (OK minimal) evolution of the Murci. I dunno if I like how gigantic the rear wheels look, though. It would look a bit more proportional if the rear wheels were 1" smaller with respectively smaller wheelarches. That's probably just me, though.

The Murci looks "plain" to me. This is the first good-looking and interesting Lambo for me since the Reventon, and before that was the Countach.

If that car was a woman, it'd be that blonde that was on last week's Top Gear. I had problems thinking about anything else for a few hours.

Yea, that'd be her. Thanks, can't focus on anything AGAIN. Plus the Lamborghini. And I'm drinking beer. And listening to metal. This night is full of distractions!

It's subtly different from the Murci, in all good ways. But, I was hoping for something radically different/brand new. Like the 458 Italia.

I'm assuming that was on the torrent, right?

I'll see her in a few weeks, I guess...
