Introduced last year, the 2013 Lamborghini Aventador LP700-4 rides into the new year as one of the most desirable high-performance driving machines in the world. Steeped in the Italian tradition of wrapping speed and maneuverability in stunningly seductive sheet metal, Lamborghini excels in transforming modern transportation into a rolling art form. In truth, the "sheet metal" we speak of is largely aluminum and carbon fiber, the latter ensuring maximum strength and minimal weight. Coupled with a 691-horsepower V12 engine and all-wheel drive, the Aventador can propel its occupants to 60 mph in under three seconds and continue up to an astonishing 217 mph terminal velocity. At nearly $400,000, the Aventador travels in a small, impressive cadre of cars, including the Ferrari 458 and the McLaren MP4-12C.
