Aventador Drop Top Pics

That’s right, the next show stopper at the Geneva Auto Show will be the Lamborghini Aventador drop top.  This super car sports race car looks, cool open roof, and true Lamborghini attitude.  It’s not just looks, like any Lamborghini, this power house delivers 60 second times in the neighborhood of 2.8 seconds, thanks to a v12 mill.

The pictures below of the Aventador are known as the Aventador J, but also known as the Unica throughout super car rumor mills.  So, if the leaked photos are any indication, this will be a true roadster, no roof to speak of.  Don’t consider driving the Aventador on any wet roads or snowy days, this is a summer time flat asphalt ride all the way.

Aventador Announcement with Pics

Aventador, All New Lambo Pushing 700hp

Lamborghini has always been known for their high horsepower pavement ripping works of art, this only makes it more difficult for them to raise the bar.  Their answer is the Aventador, a 700 horsepower V12 capable of doing 0-60 in 2.9 seconds and doing so in a recognizable canvas.

My first impression of the Aventador is that it looks like a stretched Gallardo, with slightly more aggressive lines.  I imagine the larger wheel base and stretched appearance lends itself to a more stable ride at max speed, somewhere around 217 mph.  Also, thanks to advancements in weight positioning, the 6.5 liter engine seated over the rear tires allows for breakneck 0-60 times of 2.9 seconds.

The Aventador comes in a variety of color combinations and options, including 2 solid paint options of either black, yellow, or optional white.  In addition, there are 4 different metallic colors, 4 pearl orange effects, and 3 different matte finishes.

How much does the Lamborghini Aventador cost?  If you have to ask, it doesn’t matter, especially considering all 2011 models have already been spoken for.  Ok, if you must know, the 2011 Aventador has a list price of $387,000.  Get in line now for the 2012 model year and bring your check book.

2012 Camaro Transformer Edition

Are you a fan of the new Transformer block busters or just hate VW Beetles?  Either way there is a brand new special edition Camaro available in 2012, which is an appearance package avialable for the 2LT and SS model Camaros.

Fans of the movies will immediately recognize the vibrant Rally Yellow coupled with carbon fiber stripes.  In addition the 2012 Transformer Edition comes equipped with a high-wing spoiler, murdered-out 20″ rims, leather seats with yellow trim, and Autobot logos.

The basic Transformer package for the 2012 Camaro is $3,000, but for the wheels and black ground effects add $7,780.

Dodge Has Not Delivered

We’ve all been thinking it, Dodge just has not delivered on what could have been.  When other car makers were throwing back to what was, Dodge decided to tone down and drown out, essentially.  Compared to the new Mustang and Camaro, the Charger does not deliver.

How could Dodge engineers decide that this was the best design?  Didn’t at least one person on the board ask, “What made the Dodge Charger an Icon?”.  Thankfully I think they took the hint with the new Dodge challenger, but only barely.

2011 Camaro Convertible

The first of the convertible Camaro’s are starting to roll into dealerships.  At least locally, I’m seeing them ushered in, shortly after having the white tape pulled off the fenders, and then watching them drive off.  Lots are already presold, so getting your hands on one may be tricky.

Price wise it looks like on average you’ll be paying about $7,000 more per car than the same coupe equivalent.  Often this can be attributed to extra parts in the frame strengthening department, different handling components, and consumer demand.  Damn you consumers for loving the sun, wind, and sporty rides.
