The new Lamborghini Aventador S is characterised by new aerodynamic design, redeveloped suspension, increased power and new driving dynamics. The ‘S’ is the suffix of previous enhanced Lamborghini models and defines a new benchmark for the V12 Lamborghini.
A more aggressive nose and longer front splitter redirect airflow for better aerodynamic efficiency. The active rear wing is movable in three positions depending on speed and drive select mode and optimises the car’s improved overall balance. An extremely rigid lightweight carbon fiber monocoque with attached aluminium frames result in a dry weight of just 1,575 kg.
The Lamborghini Aventador’s naturally aspirated twelve cylinder, 6.5-liter engine outputs an additional 40 hp over its predecessor, to a maximum 740 hp. Acceleration from 0-100 km/h is reached in 2.9 seconds, with a top speed of 350 km/h. Transmission is provided by Lamborghini’s lightweight Independent Shifting Rod (ISR) 7-speed shifting system.
“This is the next generation Aventador as well as the expression of new technological and performance milestones in super sports car development,” says Automobili Lamborghini Chairman and Chief Executive Officer Stefano Domenicali. “The Aventador S is visionary design, cutting-edge technology and driving dynamics in pure harmony, and elevates the concept of super sports cars to a new level.”
With the new Aventador S coming in Spring of 2017, you will have plenty of time to save up for the AUD $788,914 price tag, plus on-road costs.
