2015 Lamborghini Aventador vs. Its Competition

2015 Lamborghini Aventador LP 700-4 Pirelli Edition
Nelson Ireson Nelson Ireson Senior Editor

The Lamborghini Aventador is a unique offering from a brand focused on standing out from the crowd.

Nevertheless, there are alternatives that offer much of the punch, whether in terms of visuals, performance, or both.

Among them are Ferrari’s 458 Italia, which is one of the most sublimely engaging and balanced cars on the road today, but lacks some of the Aventador’s over-the-top presence.

Porsche’s 911 and Audi’s R8 are far more practical, much more comfortable, just about as quick in any real-world scenario, and far more affordable—but also more common as a result.

Mercedes-Benz’s SLS AMG GT, and its replacement, the AMG GT, offer unique style all their own, with gull wings for the SLS, and a stunning new curves-and-flares design for the AMG GT, as well as fearsome performance, but again, without the extreme-ness of the Lamborghini’s look.
