Lamborghini Aventador or Ford Torino GT – could you choose?
Having spent a fair bit of overindulgence watching the brilliant Breaking Bad, it seemed only fitting to be greedy and pick out two cars that one of its main stars Aaron Paul has been spotted driving – a Lamborghini Aventador and 1969 Ford Torino GT.
If you haven’t seen Breaking Bad, then you really should its brilliant, but I’ll try and keep the focus centred on the cars today and it’s fair to say that there’s quite a parallel between the two.
Let’s start with the Aventador. Having come with a $400,000 price tag, this is certainly a less subtle, flashier car that can do 0 to 60mph in less than 3 seconds and clocks a top speed of 217mph.
The Torino GT on the other hand is a classic model. It recently grabbed a few headlines when Paul drove it to the premiere of his latest film Need For Speed, and promptly overheated it on the red carpet leading to smoke appearing from the front!
I’ve not actually seen the film, but apparently this is one of the cars that Paul drove in the early parts, and clearly despite the red carpet mishap he fell in love with it, as he’s since been spotted driving around in one on the streets of LA.
Being honest, I wouldn’t say no to owning either of the cars – they’d be a sufficient upgrade over my Ford Fiesta – or even just a quick drive for that matter.
I’d probably feel out of place driving the Aventador, which I admit could be considered an odd thing to say, but when it comes to the Ford Torino I’m a sucker for the classics. For starters I’m a big fan of the light metallic blue colour of Paul’s Torino, but put simply I just think it’s a gorgeous car.
I guess a simple conclusion is that Paul boosts an impressive car collection; even if we are only talking about two cars here, it’s quite a pair. Of course, it’s rare for a celebrity to put the brakes on their car purchases!
But if you were in Paul’s shoes and had to pick just one of these cars, what you go for?
Are you someone who couldn’t resist the chance to drive a high-performance supercar, or are you a big fan of classic motors? Just be careful of overheating!
