Does Amazon exude luxury? Nope.

Is driving a Lambo not memorable enough of an experience? Mmm…

Does one drive a Lambo often enough to need to use voice? Probably not. Most of the time, Lambos get driven to where they’re driven.

Amazon is lucky to get Lamborghini as a partner but I’m not sure how grounded in reality is the implementation of Alexa in their cars. It definitely got some publicity.
