How does the
TCC Rating work?
The TCC Rating is a clear numeric rating value based on a 10-point scale that reflects the overall opinion of our automotive experts on any vehicle and rolls up ratings we give each vehicle across sub-categories you care about like performance, safety, styling and more.

Our rating also has simple color-coded “Stop” (red), “Caution” (orange),
or “Go” (green) messages along with the numerical score so you can easily understand where we stand at a glance.

Our automotive experts then also collect and show you what other websites say about these different aspects of any vehicle. We do this leg work for you to simplify your research process.

Though there's no direct competition for the Lamborghini Aventador currently on the market, several supercar alternatives offer some of the Aventador's mix of performance and style.

The 2012 Porsche 911 Turbo, for example, packs all-wheel drive, breathtaking performance, a much better gearbox, and enough practicality to make it a daily driver--unlike the Aventador--though it isn't anywhere near as fast, as stylish, or as exclusive.

The same goes for the 2012 Audi R8 V10, which closely resembles Lamborghini's own Gallardo.

Again, the R8 offers plenty of performance for most mortals, but doesn't have the extreme high-tech construction or raw head-turning ability of the Aventador.

Mercedes-Benz's SLS AMG offers some of the Aventador's head-turning pop, especially upon arrival, when the gullwing doors swing up, but it, too, falls short in performance.

Finally, there's the Ferrari 458 Italia, which while short of the Aventador's performance figures, and only about two-thirds the price, is far nimbler, making it the driver's choice even against the Aventador's exotic status.

The 2013 Ferrari 458 Italia is everything an Italian supercar should be: fierce, balanced, stylish, and, at times, temperamental.
