The Worst Advice We’ve Ever Heard about Lamborghini
“They’re just not practical.” How many times have you heard that about the Lamborghini, possibly one of the most famous Italian supercars in the world? You’ll hear all about what somebody thinks about whether your dream car is worthwhile for a day to day commute from home to work or school… and of course, that’s not the point at all, is it? But you hear endlessly that you shouldn’t even think of making a car like this your daily driver because, hey, how are you going to haul the kids and the groceries, or deal with bad weather, or even back up without climbing half out of the car?
Anybody who has ever dreamed of driving a Lamborghini knows that the worst advice you will ever hear about such a car is that it “isn’t practical.” Lamborghinis aren’t about practicality. This isn’t a car that you drive to the market in, and it isn’t a car that you use for your daily commute unless your net worth makes such affectations irrelevant. It’s not a car that just anyone can drive, either. We saw a viral video recently of a guy stuck in city traffic, just trapped in a bumper to bumper mess, while driving a Lamborghini Aventador. The guy was determined to show off, so he was revving the motor as high as he could get it, just trying to impress people around him. Maybe he was just really impatient, too. It’s hard to say. But he couldn’t stop revving that motor… until flames started shooting up out from under the rear of the car.
The person recording the video that ended up on social media started shouting, at that point. He kept trying to get the driver’s attention. The fellow in the Aventador wasn’t just showing himself to be the sort of person who shouldn’t own such a powerful car. He was also endangering his own life. This is born out by the last frames of the video, in which the car, now parked at the curb, is seen completely roiling with flames. The distressed owner is standing near it, watching the thing go up. Now, this is unusual. Most of the time, cars like this don’t just catch on fire like that. But it’s a powerful lesson nonetheless. These are cars meant to be enjoyed, meant to be driven for performance, and meant to be treated right. You can’t just overrev them and expect that they’re going to survive. But then, that’s kind of the point of a supercar. It’s not for just anyone.
We think that’s part of the allure of exotic automobiles, and we don’t just mean the price. Sure, these are expensive cars, and there are guys who buy these cars because they want to impress everyone else with how much money they have to throw around. But there’s another kind of guy who buys or rents a car like this, and that is a guy who truly loves cars. He truly loves the experience of driving a performance automobile. The thought of getting behind the wheel of a car that not just anyone can drive fills him with a sense of wonder… and also with a sense of appreciation. You see, a true car aficionado, someone who can appreciate what makes a Lamborghini great, is someone who knows that these cars are special. He treats them that way. He wants them to be appreciated by others the way he appreciates them… not because they are expensive, but because they are unique and rare on the road.
What is the Lamborghini experience all about, if it’s not about being practical? Well, you might as well ask what the automobile experience is all about. Have you ever thought back on when you first got into cars? Chances are good that the very first time you ever shopped for a used car, just about anything you saw when you first looked at it was something you wanted. You pictured driving in it, you pictured going places with your newfound freedom, and most of all, you thought of fixing it up and accessorizing it. Why do you think some cheap cars drive the roads with every horrible accessory pasted on them? A few decades back it wasn’t unusual to see a cheap car with those double windshield blades, matching fluorescent wheelcovers, fuzzy dice, and other decals. These days people lean more towards stickers and seat covers, and it’s been years since we saw a set of curb feelers on a car made after 1980. But people add these silly accessories to their cars because they love them. They want to spend time and attention on their cars, even if they’re junkers.
A quality exotic automobile inspires the same love, but does so for different reasons. It inspires it because it brings back all your memories of the most fantastic cars you ever drove, or wanted to drive, in your younger days. Older drivers who were in their early driving years during the age of the musclecar look back in fondness at the type of inexpensive power that was on the road back then. Things have changed since those days, but it’s still fantastic to reminisce. And when you do so, you are thinking back not just to your childhood, but to an era that includes your future… because you can recapture all those great feelings when you slip behind the wheel of an exotic, powerful car like a Lamborghini.
Don’t deny yourself that escape any longer. Don’t wonder what it would be like to fire up your very own Lamborghini. Once you’ve felt that incredible acceleration press you back into your seat, once you’ve heard the growl of that engine, you’ll be amazed that you waited as long as you did. This is the experience of a lifetime… and it’s waiting for you whenever you want it, because you can have it any time you rent with us.
