Not sure if they're serious or being marketing trolls to get people talking about the article  :scratchchin: it can;t be THAT bad, it can't be worse than a Mustang in which the brakes give up after 1.5 laps.

Perfect for showboating down Chapel St, however.

The ones we had around Sepang had no issues with brake fade whatsoever - so as usual you have to take every review with a grain of salt (including mine :p )

Either way, brake fade won't be an issue on Chapel St as mentioned so probably not a concern for 99% of buyers.

I reckon if you gave 3 typical motoring journos 3 different aventadores (or any car really), you find that one of the cars would be a "lemon" and one would "a jet".

Journos should just pax, leave the driving to professionals.

Would be happy to have one even if it came last against a Yaris.

Cars are very personal and so many factors influence ones feelings of a car. When I read about people who have already experiences with an exotic, I often sense one expecting more the more experience they have with exotics.

With reviewers, I think the cars they've just driven before driving the car they're reviewing, personal feelings about a brand etc all lead to a lot of reviewers sub-consciously making up their mind about the car they're reviewing before they even get in the car.

At the end of the day, I think it's about finding a reviewer that share similar taste in cars as you.
