Here's the thing... I also just tested McLaren 12C Spider, a car that looks and performs similarly to the Lamborghini, while costing $100,000 less. Plus, it drives crazy fast and sanely slow with equal comfort and ease. It's a little smaller and less edgy than the Aventador. But let's be frank, how many Americans know what a McLaren is? Sure, a few people looked and some asked questions but arriving anywhere in the Lamborghini was like arriving with a marching band. That's probably the biggest reason people buy Lamborghinis and the Aventador's got a whole bunch of that.
