KING OF THE ROAD , Lamborghini Aventador LP700,4 -- CAPT AJIT VADAKAYIL
Every weekend my elder son and a couple of his software friends fly off to Las Vegas to let out their steam.
It is more of a necessity as in the R&D business where you keep writing computer software codes-- if you cant get your inbuilt stresses unlocked , you get burnt out.
Lot of people do NOT understand the difference between stressed out and burnt out.

They stay at the super expensive Bellagio or Caesars's palace and splurge.
He gambles on the roulette, craps and black jack. My wife has brought him up well, and he gives her a blow by blow account , and so I am not alarmed.
They take expensive sports cars on rent at the Las Vegas speedway and race with each other.
Last week my son took Christiano Ronaldo's car, the Lamborghini Aventador LP700-4.
Only difference is that Ronaldo's car is matte black. Ronaldo treated himself on his 27th birthday with this super car.
My son says this purist's dream is THE king of the road, for he was easily able to outpace all these mundane Ferraris, Porsches, Aston Martins etc.

The car has amazing and extremely exact wheel control with excellent steering precision and sensitive feedback with a robotized gearbox.
Aventador name has a symbolic connection to the world of fighting bulls, sharing a name with the legendary Aventador, a trophy-winning high spirited bull in the world of Spanish bullfighting. This fine animal had entered into battle in October 1993 at the Saragossa Arena, earning the "Trofeo de la Peña La Madroñera" for its outstanding courage, against all odds.
The start button, instantly fires the high-performance growling engine into life.
With a top speed of 349 kilometers per hour on a 7 speed transmission, with instant response and superb traction , this car is indeed a beast-- no wonder it was chosen for the 2012 movie "Dark knight rises "..
The car presented at the Geneva show was the only unit to be produced, and was sold for US$2.8 million.
The Aventador posted the third fastest time ever recorded on the Top Gear track with a time of 1:16.5, handily beating not only the monstrous $2 mil Bugatti Veyron Super Sport, The Ferrari Enzo and the Porsche GT3, but an extensive list of A-list super cars from around the world.
Every line has a clear function, every form is dictated by its need for speed, yet the overall look is nothing less than spectacular and breathtaking.
To flaunt its engine , the engine bonnet is transparent so at to showcase the twelve-cylinder V12 like a technical work of art—what more do you want?.
The interior is dominated by a next-generation dashboard - as in a modern fighter aircraft, the instruments are presented on a TFT-LCD screen using innovative display concepts.
A self-blocking rear differential together with a front differential electronically controlled by ESP make for even more dynamic handling.
On the front axle, the shock absorbers are equipped with a hydraulic lifting system, which enables the front end of the super sports car to be lifted by 40 millimeters at the touch of a button, simplifying its ability to negotiate minor obstacles—how do you like that?.
It’s brutal power, outstanding lightweight engineering and phenomenal handling precision are combined with peerless design and the very finest equipment to deliver an unparalleled driving experience.
