    my visit to sant'agata and the aventador

     

    after rushing things when i saw the pictures in geneva, i bought the 700, sold my 458; i had to see the car, especially since its a successor to a car with many flaws, at least in my opinion, the biggest flaw was that its a sunday car, and this doesnt suit me at all since i drive my exotic car every day.

    unfortunately i will not be able to shed a lot of light on the driving experience of the lp700 since i wasn't able to drive it, because the company decided that no customer should drive before the press and dealer event, but i met many people that i know in the factory that described me their driving impressions.

    the cars looks incredible, and what hit me most when i saw it is how compact it feels compared to the 640 and especially compared to pictures. it looks fabulous from every angle, they really worked on every milimeter of the design of the car . the side air intake are gigantic! the rear spoiler that takes all the lenghts of the car opens automatically at 110kph and if the car is hot, veyron style. the finishing is flawless (thanks audi). interior looks great, driving position is great, no offset legs anymore. i have looked at every details , so if anyone has questions, just ask.

    as for the conversations with various department about the driving experience, i have explained them what was not acceptable in the 640, that was mainly the gearbox, the car hopping, bogging on launch, the clutch that smelled crap after 5 minutes in a traffic jam, the ridiculous turning circle diameter etc.. and their answer, and i believe them since i know them personally for a while now, is that the car is easy to drive, and that i will be easily able to drive it everyday , in traffic jam etc.. and that they specificaly worked a lot on this aspect of the car that is the everyday driveabilty. anyway, we will know more next week when all the press will drive the car.

    all in all i think the aventador will be a great success, it should have the gallardo ease of use and reliability wrapped in a shape that is perfect from every angle; during its 10 years life cycle i never got tired of looking at a murcielago, i still find it gorgeous; the aventador gives even much more

    BUT

    i had the bad idea to call a friend at pagani, and passed by to see the Huayra; so i took the 20 minutes drive from lambo to pagani, saw some zonda F and cinque, looked at the ladies applying carbon by hand, assembling a zonda R, etc.. then i went to another warehouse and saw the huayra............................................................................. guys, for those who knows me on rennteam since 2004, know that i am not a begginer, and i have a lot experience in supercars, have owned most of them. i will make a statement that i never did before for any car, the pagani huayra is the ONLY PERFECT CAR IN THE WORLD. its the car that all serious supercars owners and lovers have never imagined in their wildest dreams. in my very humble opinion, no car EVER has been manufactured with such high level of everything, design, finishing, details, material, technology!, options, attention to every tiny details and this includes the bugatti veyron that i drove a lot and many times and visited the production facility in france 3 times. i was so impressed with what i saw, that i really think that the retail price of 820k euro is really cheap! i know i will be bashed for saying this, and i understand you, i would have said the same if never saw what i saw. if the lp700 worth 255k the huayra should worth 2million . if a veyron worth 1.2Meuro, the Huayra should worth 10 times more.

    let me show you some pictures and will give you more details later

    Re: my visit to sant'agata and the aventador

    Stunning words and pictures!! Thank you for your honest and well expressed opinion. I believe you when you say this, given the amount of cars you have had the pleasure to own! I can't wait for your review on the driving experience of the 700... You must be looking forward to see how much easier and friendly it is very much.

    And to the Zonda comment. I can only imagine and now i want to see one asap.

    That yellow Lambo is gorgeous though

    indeed shifting is ancient technology - so is a fuel burning engine..  I happen to like both :) 


    Re: my visit to sant'agata and the aventador

    Lp-700 is stunning. One my close friends has an LP-640 and I once had a short drive of the car. Didn't like the seating position and the interior. The car is 2007 (or 2008) by the way. My friend is unhappy with in traffic clutch problem. But for the rest, he is in love with the car.

    On the other hand, the new carbon chassie, the new interior, the new transmission and design of the LP-700 is just awesome. I wish to have one but my limit ends with 458..

    As for the Pagani; just from the pictures I fell in love with the new Pagani. I very much like the Zonda Cinque but the new Pagani is just out of this world. Just insane..

    Thanks Smiley

    I'm sure that car will look sick in Balloon White but i'm not sure if they  offer it on the Aventadore Smiley

    Also, the key looks effing AMAZING Smiley
     


    Re: my visit to sant'agata and the aventador

     Amazing pictures. Thanks Dimitri! Is the new LP key keyless? It's a lot more striking than the Audi key the LP640 has.

    I appreciate the detail that has gone into the new Huayra. I just don't like the new design which is very disappointing for me as I was such an avid fan.
