Lamborghini Aventadors slice through Italian countryside (+video)

May 3rd, 2011 by Darren Cottingham

Lamborghini keeps showing off footage of its latest raging bull the Aventador and you can’t blame the Italian carmaker because its an amazing machine.

This latest clip follows two Aventador models as they rapidly navigate a rolling piece of Italian country tarmac. It’s the stuff daydreams are made of and there’s no ridiculous special effects just two beautiful machines taking a spirited drive. If you could afford the asking price for the Aventador life would certainly be different.

The Aventador represents the latest in the evolution of Lamborghini’s top supercars. The 515kW carbon-fibre beast weighs in at a ultra light 1,574 kg, gifting it the kind of power-to-weight ratio typically found on a race track.

If you’re inspired by the video below and you have a disgusting amount of cash then Lamborghini will sell you one for around $370,000 USD or $459,500 in NZ money. Luckily, dreams are much cheaper. Continue reading “Lamborghini Aventadors slice through Italian countryside (+video)” »

Hertz now offering Lotus Elise rentals in Italy

Hertz Lotus Elise

Any car enthusiast who has visited Italy would have noticed the tight, sinuous roads that wind their way through the countryside and dreamed of unleashing a sportscar on them. But until now the fastest set of wheels available at the airport rental counter was a Fiat Punto. A vehicle unworthy of the roads and the scenic countryside.

Rental car company Hertz has finally done something about this injustice and announced that a posse of Lotus Elise SCs have been added to its Italian fleet. The new Lotuses form part of Hertz Italiana’s Fun Collection, and are all painted bright yellow and feature Hertz-branded interior trim.

Hertz has offered the Corvette ZHZ and Shelby Mustang GT-H in the United States for some time now, but this is the first time such a sports car has been offered for rent in Europe by the company.

You’re dreaming if you think it will be cheap, but the Hertz Elise SCs are a convenient option for renting a proper sportscar to explore the country’s autostradas and narrow B-roads with. The biggest problem is figuring out how to fit two weeks worth of luggage into one.
