    The Lamborghini Aventador is a car that hardly needs an introduction. Introduced in 2011, the Aventador has been one of the most eye-catching offerings in the sportscar segment. It’s a moving art form that can make even an 80-year-old feel like an excited toddler when it rips past.

    In Roadster form, it looks even more special, with its slender-spoked alloy wheels and complex glass engine cover. In my eyes, it’s easily the best-looking car you can buy today; a show-stopper in white. Yes, lots of sportscars can turn a few heads. But an Aventador Roadster, with its dramatic, jet fighter design, can summon a fanatical mob seemingly out of thin air. Hence spending a day in Bangalore in the Aventador Roadster would have been as easy as Katrina Kaif spending a day shopping on MG Road.

    But yet here I am, and first things first: off comes the roof; I’m not about to drive one of the most exotic convertibles on the planet with a roof over my head. But unlike most convertibles, this isn’t some push-button, fold-on-the-fly electric roof. No, Lamborghini, in typical Italian fashion, prefers style over function, and a folding roof would have compromised the car’s beautiful silhouette and that gorgeous engine cover. So instead, you get a pair of forged composite roof panels that can be removed. It’s a bit of a tedious task – fold the seatbacks forward, pull the latches to release the panels, lift them out, and slot them into the boot. But at least they’re extremely light.
