It is.  And don't call me pink.

Which one's Pink?
 
2013-01-09 05:13:00 PM  
At least you can still fit to in the pink.
 
2013-01-09 05:15:28 PM  
I'm pretty sure that if you are paying $2.6 million for it, you can have it painted however you'd like.

/then again, sometimes rich people pay more for fewer options.....

It looks like it has about 2 inches of road clearance in the front. I can see the front scoop getting smashed on the first speed bump.

If I buy a pink car it has to be a classic Cadillac.

It's not pink, it's lightish red.

Good supercars have a jack system to lift up the front end to avoid that.

Looks like a very gender-neutral red to me.

Red. The Matte finish diffuses white light along with the reflected red and appears pink.

Why the shock? It's a Lamborghini. It's supposed to be horrifically ugly. That's half the point.

/ except the Countach... but only because it just works so well for the 80s which, itself, was a pretty ugly period of time in general

There's nothing wrong with driving a pink car (and the Lambo in TFA isn't anywhere close to pink. It's black with magenta trim).. Nobody will question your masculinity if you drive a pink car unless they are a girly-man; inversely, only a girly-man with a very small penis would refuse to drive a pink car because he thinks it would make others question his masculinity.

On the other hand, if you drive a Lambo, everybody's gonna think you either have more money than brains or are overcompensating for a comically small penis. Chances are both are true, because you could get a Zonda, a Koenigsegg or an Ariel Atom for about the same as, or less than, an Aventador; and none of the other three will make people point and laugh at you, nor do they scream "Please don't look at my penis" the way a Lambo, a Corvette or a Hummer do.

Hell, if you have that kind of money but don't want a supercar, get a Phantom or even a museum piece. While whether or not you look like a pretentious douchenozzle depends upon who is actually looking at you when you drive something like that, at least they won't think you're a pretentious douchenozzle who's compensating for a ridiculously tiny penis.

You buy that and you'll get all the pink you can handle.

If you can even afford to buy that, you'll get all the pink you can handle.

That video is pretty damn impressive. It's able to idle in place and reach speeds of at least 10 mph.

Plus, the high-tech interior seen in the concept will remain identical, meaning the seat shape and even position will be customized to the owner's liking.

For 2.2 million farking dollars, I'd better be able to move the damn seat. Then again, if I had 2.2 million dollars, I'd be going all Charlie Sheen, with the hookers and blow. *BENDER VOICE* in fact, forget the blow!

The seat will move any damned time you want the seat to move. You just have to call the dealership to move it for you.

This is why I guess I would make a terrible rich person. $2MM would buy me a collection of 20 breathtaking vintage cars, like an original Mark I GTi, random American muscle from the 70s, a couple of rodded out pickups, a couple of roadsters, some of those inspirational poster cars from the 80s, there's not much you couldn't find for $20-$50K each. With a mil left over for a nice garage and a years' salary for a talented mechanic.

Raiding eBay motors/bring a trailer would be the shopping adventure of a lifetime, the subject of its own documentary film if done right.

Or you could get this ridiculous monster, after waiting for months, and have everyone ask you what it is and assume you paid 1/4 of what you actually paid. Women can't tell the difference between this Lambo and any other supercar made during the last decade, why waste valuable drug money on it?

/won't someone please think of the drugs?

2.2 million? Man, showing off that you've got more money than you know what to do with (either from an excess of money or a lack of brains/imagination, or both) appears to have much harsher diminishing returns than it used to. Back in the day you could spend like 100k$ and it would impress both other car hobbyists _and_ random people on the street. Now apparently spending over 2 mil is only sufficient to impress the hobbyists, people that haven't memorized logos and model numbers are gonna glance at that body and assume you're driving a ricer.

I like it. Growing up in the 80's/90's I had every kind of exotic/Muscle car poster on my wall. I always loved the Testarossa and the 308 and have a soft spot for the 72 Chevelle and the 69 Camaro. I guess I was a Ferrari and an American metal guy way back. It seems though lately, maybe because it is my favorite car on Need For Speed: Most Wanted, that I really like the lines on the Lambo Aventador.

Yes, there is something to be said about the rumble of an old beefed up V8 with glass packs but the sound a Lambo makes, 10 cats trapped on a crotch-rocket headed for the sun, just makes my palms sweaty.

/have never driven a Lambo or a Ferrari
//I have driven old American muscle. Went so fast in an old 68 1/2 Cougar that I almost pooped myself.

I can almost hear the discussion at Lambo:

- Ok, did you paint that pink?
- No sir, its magenta.
- Looks pink to me.
- Its sort of a lightish red.
- Its pink. We sell cars to men, gentlemens. Women dont buy our cars, they would prefer Priuses. Men dont buy pink cars, they think its girly and that it attacks the size of their penises.
- But we sell overcompensation for their penises sir, and for sure this color will get them talking.
- That... makes sense. Ship it, we can get another color painted when, if, a customer orders one.
