spiritual home of something as outlandish as Lamborghini’s signature supercar,
the Aventador S – despite the fact that it’s about the only legal place to
stretch its very long legs.

more than two metres wide… and there’s the small matter of the 6.5-litre V12 in
the back half that’s grunting out some pretty handsome numbers.
another, on the road this is easily more than a million dollars’ worth of
machine, fast-idling in a very sodden pit lane of a very sodden race track that
happens to have one of the highest average speeds in the country.
Lamborghini itself uses its smaller, lighter and cheaper Huracan as a basis for
its on-track activities.
There’s not a lot of choice today, though.
These left-hand-drive cars are touring the world as part of Lamborghini’s
Esperienza event, and it’ll be the first and last chance to try one on local
soil before customer examples touch down in 2018.
