Meet the new Lamborghini Aventador S! This is the latest evolution of the famous Lamborghini Aventador presented in Geneva a few years ago. After the LP750-4 SuperVeloce (and its roadster version), which I consider to be a completely different model, the Aventador finally gets its “revamp”. In this specific situation, you can’t really talk of a “new model” per se.
As Lamborghini say themselves “an icon cannot be reinvented, it can only be challenged“. This quote seems very fitting in this situation. The general lines of the car haven’t changed: it’s the same good old Aventador. With a few differences. Basically, everything we loved, but sharper, and more agressive. Sounds bold.
Obviously, the biggest difference for me has to be the front of the car: it simply is STUNNING. It’s obviously a reminder of the Aventador SV front bumper, yet… slightly more… agressive. Yes, that’s possible, due to the sharper lines and the front end that reminds “the fins of a shark (with +130% in front downforce)“. Sure Lambo, that was also the first thing it made me think of, but after looking at it longer, I saw snake FANGS that give the car a LOT of dynamism. The car really looks like a King Cobra, with its fangs in the open, about to strike.
In the interior, nothing really changes: it’s still very similar to the Aventador, with a few minor aesthetic changes, like the possibility to have something they call “Carbon Skin”(certain parts of the carbon body are left exposed). As far as the engine goes, the V12 now has 740 bhp!! That’s only 10 less than the Aventador SV. Talk about a power increase… Question is, will it sound as badass? Everything tends to show it will. It definitely will. With its new LDVA (Lamborghini Dinamica Veicolo Attiva, aka Lamborghini Active Vehicle Dynamics) offering a new type of driving experience: 4 wheel steering, 4 active suspension and 4 wheel-drive, the new Lamborghini Aventador S promises to be quite a lovely track machine.
