This Aventador LP700-4 [named for its mid-engine’s longitudinal placement in front of the rear axle, 700 horsepower and 4-wheel drive] sighting in Paris makes me think of the Zoo. Yes, the Zoo. The Lamborghini, a caged animal, bound by congested, narrow streets and laughably low speed limits. So utterly beautiful to look at but terribly dangerous to approach at the same time. Looking from afar, people stare with wide-eyes and slack-jaws, floored by the vehicle’s dramatic presence and ferocious nature. At the end of the day, it’s almost tragic to keep this bull from raging.
Chew on that.
