When I saw the TG piece, they slapped the Aventador's time right below the 12C's (it was still there during the broadcast)...

When did TG do a review on the Aventador?? I have all episodes and I can't seem to find it.
The last episode (episode 6) of this prior season (season 17). The Aventador was too clinical for Hammond. He wanted to feel like he could die at any moment.

Phil, are you d/l'ing, or recording from BBC America? Could explain your lack of ep.

That Viper ACR is impressive, but I can definitely see a tuned 12C beating them around the 'ring.

The LFA Nürburgring Package, Porsche 911 GT2-RS, and Viper ACR are largely in-essence track-day clubsport racers w/ stripped-out comfort features & maximal aero treatment, whereas the MP4-12C is still refined, livable, and a comfortable daily-driver w/ hyper/super car performance... correct?

Not the LFA.......still has sat nav and enough CF n ALCANTERA to make PAGANI nervous;).........I just don't see the 'stripped-out' argument in the LFA......now I will give you AERO n SUSPENSION set to MAX TRACK MODE:D......made the GT2 RS look SLOW:eek:

Whatever. LFS NE has racing buckets (not sport seats). Much of the 100kg weight loss is probably there. Recline won't adjust, won't fit fat waist and try driving for more than an hour without your arse blistering. Don't forget to pick a route without speed bumps or a gas station with an angled ramp. Whole car is lowered 10 more mm and you'll be smashing that new, deeper front splitter into carbon souvenirs. A 430 Scud is the lap of luxury compared to that car.

What do you mean it STILL did 7:14.. That's my point, it did that because it is a compromised street car. I wasn't saying it is slow. It's freaking fast as hell. I'd be happier than a pig in sh!t if the 12C comes even close to that, with semi or fully electric seats, clean aero, full leather interior and a normal ride height that makes it truly a usable supercar, unlike the LFA NE, GT2 RS and ACR.
