The Lamborghini Aventador puts just as much energy into amassing eyeballs as it does worn-down tire treads.
Sure, there are alternatives, but you'll need to compromise in some way to get any of them.
There's the Ferrari 458 Italia, a sublime sportscar that's giving way to the 488GTB this year; it's bringing turbocharging and a long waiting list to the exotic-car party.
If you're a bit more practical, you might look at the Porsche 911 Turbo and the Audi R8; they're both 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 AMG GT has a style all its own, with stunning curves and flares, as well as fearsome performance—but without gullwings, it doesn't quite hit the same extreme high notes as the Lambo.
