2014 Lamborghini Aventador Roadster

Matt Hardigree at Jalopnik is driving one as his primary vehicle and answering questions about it.

Question: Does such a wide and heavy car feel ... well, wide & heavy? Reviews of similar cars often point out how nimble supercars are, but are those mini cooper or Fiesta ST levels of nimbleness?

It feels wide, because that's not as much a physical sensation as it is a visual/perceptual one and you certainly feel like you're going to scratch an oncoming car until you get used to it, which is fairly quickly.
However, parked next to a Countach S it seems as narrow as a Morgan 3-Wheeler.

Heavy? No. Because V12. Also, the steering in the most extreme mode is so sensitive it steers with your mind, so nimbleness is a byproduct of your mental agility.

A man can dream, can't he?
