Video: Matt Farah Takes the Lamborghini Aventador on a Road Trip

Posted on by  

What could be the perfect car to ride you to a major tuning show? One that costs at least half-million dollar of course! Enter in the Lamborghini Aventador used by Matt Farah on his 700-mile road trip to the 2013 SEMA Show .

With a 6.5-liter, V-12 engine that delivers a total of 700 horsepower at 8,250 rpm and 509 pound-feet of torque at 5,500 rpm in tow, the Aventador is able to rocket from 0 to 60 mph in 2.9 seconds and up to a top speed of 217 mph.Comfort, on the other hand, is not part of the Aventador package, according the Farah.

With an average fuel consumption of 14 mpg, it means that Matt needed at least 50 gallons of gas for this trip, and with an average of $3.20 per gallon, he had to pay $160 to get to LA. That number may have been slightly lower, had Farah kept his cool and not maxed out the V-12 at every opportunity, Then again, could we really resist the temptation to hear that sweet V-12 scream at us? We highly doubt it...

Check out the video to see if Matt finds the Aventador the right car for such a long journey!
