Aventador Murciélago
In keeping with Lamborghini tradition, the Aventador is named after a bull. The Aventador was a bull that fought particularly valiantly in the bull ring of Saragossa, Spain in 1993 The Murciélago is the name of a bull that survived 24 sword strokes in 1879 in Córdoba, Spain. Murciélago fought with such passion and spirit that the matador chose to spare its life, a rare honor.
