Who’s the rich guy that always gets the girl, has the best toys, and drives some of the coolest supercars, all while saving the world from evil? If we would’ve asked this question last year then many would say Tony Stark/Ironman, but the spotlight has been refocused on the caped crusader , Bruce Wayne/Batman. In Dark Knight, Batman sped around Gotham City in a Lamborghini Murcielago , but in the followup film, The Dark Knight Rises, Bruce has moved up in the world, driving around in the new Lamborghini Aventador . These images of the Aventador’s breakthrough in film were taken outside of an office building where VW Vortex forum member, VadGTI, was working.
Whether the Aventador will come with the usual array of toys found on the Batmobile, is still unknown; the Lamborghini supercar may just be a trophy in Bruce Wayne’s garage. If it does make its debut as Batman’s latest ride, expect plenty of exterior modifications, but the same throaty 6.5-liter V12 engine pushing out 700 HP 8,250 rpm and 509 lb-ft at 5,500 rpm. Catwoman’s motorcycle will have to do better than the Aventador’s top speed of 217 mph.
Let’s just hope that it doesn’t suffer the same fate as that of the Murcielago LP640 - it crashed heavily in one scene - in the Dark Knight.
