The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration has issued a bulletin over a recall for up to 144 examples of the 2012 Lamborghini Aventador here in the States. The affected models, built from July 15, 2011 to April 20, 2012 have headlights that apparently don't conform to US federal motor vehicle safety standards. The lamps can be aimed horizontally but not vertically, which can reduce their usefulness for the driver and blind oncoming traffic if aimed improperly.
They're lifting glasses of bubbly in Bologna today as Lamborghini celebrates the Aventador reaching a significant milestone in its young history: 1,000 units produced. The 1,000th Aventador is painted Argos Orange and destined for Germany, where it will share space in Bavarian architect Hans Scheldecker's garage with a Diablo.
The Lamborghini Aventador is one of the quickest and fastest supercars on the market today, but does it have what it takes to beat a fighter jet? And not just any jet, but an F-16 Fighting Falcon, perhaps the most iconic plane flown by the U.S. Air Force? Danish auto rag Bilmagasinet (literally translated as "car magazine") aimed to answer this question, and brought both vehicles to an active air field to find out whether or not this bull could beat a little old bird.

We know from our colleagues that it's hard enough to just catch a blurry glimpse of a distant mule when the quarry doesn't want to be photographed, making this series of photos from our friends at CarPix that much more remarkable.
A Lamborghini Murcielago SV and Aventador have come together for one expensive and powerful photo shot. More like an aging master has come face to face with the newest stud from the family farm. The man behind the lens is Jordan Shiraki from Lamborghini Las Vegas, and his work has been featured on Autoblog in the past. Previously, we saw Shiraki capture the first Aventador to arrive on U.S. soil, and now he has once again teamed up with Sin City's most bullish dealership for a new set of impress
While it's not as fun to play with as the Bugatti Veyron configurator or even the Novitec Rosso 458 Italia configurator, the Lamborghini Aventador LP700-4 web toy is up and running. Sadly, all you can do is pick exterior and interior color combinations, meaning the build-your-own Aventador site isn't as much of a time-waster as we'd like it to be as you'd think.
