Aventador #Roadster S @Lamborghini

I’m Distressed That I Wasn’t More Impressed By The 2018 Lamborghini Aventador Roadster S
// Jalopnik

Look here: it’s the new, roofless version of the Lamborghini Aventador S—the Lamborghini Aventador S Roadster. Whoo!

Not terribly much is different between the roadster and the hardtop. It keeps the naturally aspirated V12 that makes 740 horsepower. It does zero to 62 mph in a claimed three seconds and has an alleged top speed of 217 mph. And it has four-wheel steering.

Removable hard top panels come away so you can feel the wind in your hair. You can store them in the frunk. Customers can take delivery of the car by next February and it has an MSRP of $460,247. Excellent, all excellent.

I expected to feel more than a resounding, “meh” in my head when I saw and read about this car. Which is very distressing to me when I stopped to think about it. I used to love supercars. I loved the Ferraris and Lamborghinis as much as the next kid when I was little. I collected big, coffee table books about them, which I read cover to cover. I could recite all my favorite supercar stats to my friends.

And now it’s 2017 and I see a sparkling new Lamborghini on my screen and I’m really not that impressed by it. Why? They’re faster than ever before, have even more advanced performance technology. They cost way more than any normal person should spend on a car. Personally, I feel no desire to own the thing, so this isn’t a case of sour grapes or anything. I just don’t get this ambivalence.

Did some part of my youth die?
