Lamborghini Aventador

  • Base price: $400,000

I drive a lot of different cars every year and most of them are, really, fairly ordinary. That's not to say they're never exciting, fun and interesting but, well, let's put it this way... Kids don't grow up dreaming of one day getting to drive a really good Kia.

Review - Aventador: Insanity in the big city

They grow up dreaming of getting to drive one of these. These are, to other cars, what Beyoncé is to other people. They are the stars. They get stared at. They get photographed. They invite scandalous gossip about the driver's lifestyle.

To be honest, not every one of these cars is quite as head-turning as this Lamborghini Aventador, a car I love for its gorgeous lines, vicious acceleration and wailing V12 noise. Even the interior is nice. The only real disappointment is its inexcusably rough-shifting transmission. I won't lie, though. It's fun to get the chance to complain about anything in cars like these.
