From 20 to 25 of January the global dynamic launch of the Aventador S took place at the Ricardo Tormo circuit in Valencia (Spain). International media tested the next generation of the V12 Lamborghini flagship on both track and road. The event’s claim, DARE YOUR EGO, sums up the essence of this Lamborghini: today’s cars tend more and more to replace those who are behind the wheel, taking away the pleasure of driving that Lamborghini has always offered. The Aventador S restores the focus to the driver, while still providing sophisticated technologies such as four-wheel steering, an active suspension system and, of course, the four-wheel drive. The customization of such technologies is easily accessed via driving modes: the EGO button is selected to adjust the engine, transmission, steering and suspension, depending on the type of route, the driver’s preferences and the driving environment.
The new Lamborghini Aventador S is characterized 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. The Aventador S features a number of exterior developments, particularly in front and rear, while its profile remains clearly an Aventador. Every modified component is redesigned for a purpose, achieving maximum aerodynamic efficiency while accenting the Aventador’s complex, muscular dynamism. Furthermore, Lamborghini Centro Stile has intelligently integrated
certain elements of past icons, such as the lines of rear wheel arches reminiscent of the original Countach. 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.
A dry weight of just 1,575 kg provides a weight-to-power ratio of just 2.13 kg/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, providing robotized gear shifts in up to 50 milliseconds. The Aventador S is characterized by the new four-wheel steering, adopted for the first time on a series production Lamborghini. The system provides improved agility at low and medium speeds and more stability at high speed.
