In the early 2000’s, it was often said that Kobe Bryant was Robin to Shaquille O’Neal’s Batman. Kobe never saw it that way. The duo was so strong, they made it to the Finals four times, winning three championships. The Lakers essentially had two Batmans on the same team.
So, what would Batman drive? A Lamborghini Aventador of course. The Batman movies starting Christian Bale had him arriving in a Murcielago.

Kobe purchased the latest version of the top end Lamborghini in the Aventador. There have been many versions of the Aventador since then. Horsepower has been added. Lamborghini even came out with more hair-raising versions with two-wheel-drive Aventadors. The most recent 2016 Aventadors come in with a “low” horsepower rating of 691, knocking on the door of 700 altogether. Lightweight versions have come out, as well as a 750 horsepower version. Sometimes the Ferrari 458 Spider isn’t enough.
In rear-wheel-drive or all-wheel-drive versions, Lamborghini is known for being the “wild” supercar. The partnership with Audi within the past decade helped modernize the electronics. Lamborghini stuck to their steep wedge designs, eye-rolling horsepower, and all-wheel-drive drivetrains before progressing to a more dangerous two-wheel-drive set up. The car is capable of 0-60 miles per hour in three seconds flat, and has a laughable EPA rating of 11 city, 17 highway.
That doesn’t matter to Batman. It certainly didn’t matter to Kobe Bryant.
