4-Door Lamborghini Aventador

Will there be A family friendly Lamborghini Aventador?

The very words ‘family friendly’ and ‘Lamborghini Aventador’ go together like orange juice and mint flavored chewing gum.

Ferrari has been busy publicizing its jaw-dropping FF hatchback, including feats like invading Maranello.
