If you think that 2,000 vehicles being made isn’t a big deal, you obviously don’t know how much a Lamborghini Aventador costs.

It’s not a Toyota Corolla or a Honda Civic, and it certainly doesn’t cost anywhere near those two cars.

So, for Lamborghini to have built 2,000 examples of the Aventador in a little over 2 years, that’s a huge deal and certainly worth celebrating. Celebrate the company did when Aventador No. 2k rolled off the production line.

As for the lucky owner of the Italian supercar, his name is Thaddeus Arroyo, the Chief Intelligence Officer for AT&T in the U.S. Incidentally, he also owns a Lamborghini Gallardo LP 550-2 Spyder, which indicates that this man knows his Lamborghinis.

Congratulations to Lamborghini on reaching this fantastic milestone far sooner than anybody anticipated. At this rate, don’t be surprised if we see more of these celebrations in the coming years.

The Aventador is without a doubt the jewel of Lambo’s production line. Sure, the Aventador J and Veneno are higher on the overall list, but those are super-limited vehicles that don’t quite qualify. Its sexy styling is enough to make even folks that aren’t obsessed with cars take notice.

Add in its 6.5-liter V-12 engine that produces 700 horsepower and 507 pound-feet of torque that allows it to hit 60 mph in just 2.9 seconds and a top speed of 217 mph, and you have a bona fide bad-ass.

Kirby’s first exposure into the world of automobiles happened when he caught Knight Rider on television as a five-year old boy. David Hasselhoff didn’t leave much of an impression on him (that happened later on in Baywatch), but KITT certainly did. To this day, Kirby remains convinced that he will one day own a car with the same ‘spirit’ as the original KITT (not the 2008 monstrosity). He doesn't know when that will be, but until then, he’s committed to expressing his love for KITT, and all cars for that matter, here at TopSpeed.  Read More
