Sometimes, you can only let out an exasperated sigh.
The Lamborghini Aventador is, by all measures, a high-powered, true-as-can-be supercar. It’s appeal is hinged on the fact that it’s an exotic-looking beast with performance credentials unmatched by most cars in today’s world.
What it isn’t is a limousine, which is what UK-based luxury-car-for-hire company, Cars For Stars, is trying to turn it into.
To be fair to Cars For Stars, it’s designing the Lambo limo to remain "loyal to the original iconic Aventador design,” except with the caveat that it’s going to be much longer than what the Aventador is used to. But Cars For Stars is keeping most of the Aventador’s defining features, including the upwards-opening scissor doors, which will now have four of them as opposed to the two in the standard Aventador.
The company also said that the Aventador limousine will be built with only the finest materials in mind, including plush leather interiors emblazoned with the Cars For Stars logo, heated seats, plasma screens, iPod docks, surround sound, champagne bars and plenty more.
We have no doubts that Cars For Stars won’t disrespect the spirit of the Aventador, but there’s something to be said about turning a supercar into a luxury limousine that looks more and more like an expensive novelty more than anything else.
We get it if it’s a Rolls-Royce or a Bentley. But a Lamborghini Aventador?
Not so much.
