It’s basically a two-middle-fingered salute to Alberta. Ferruccio would never say that, but Stephan would.
Stephan Winkelmann is leading his company down a slippery slope, one that could lead to the destruction of Alberta as we know it.
Winkelmann has rejected the 40-year-old V12 design that dated back to the Miura, rejecting his company’s heritage in the process, and forged ahead with a new aluminum-block, direct-injected, dry-sump lubed, hunk of environmental communism.
With a weight reduction of 518 lbs and a 20% reduction in fuel consumption, the Aventador is reducing the demand for oil, driving down the price of crude, and making Alberta’s laborious, costly, and environmentally disastrous bitumen extraction look unappealing. The gall of those Italians!
