2016 Lamborghini Aventador vs. Its Competition

2016 Lamborghini Aventador SuperVeloce (SV)
Martin Padgett Martin Padgett Editorial Director

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.
