The company has listed the specifications, performance numbers and availability of the car. It is expected to commence deliveries in Spring 2017.
Lamborghini is known for their amazing supercars that always come with a hefty price tag and ground breaking performance. The newly launched Aventador S is their official flagship for the year 2017 and this new entry is hardly any different from its previous offerings. The flagship model boasts of a cool 740 horsepower rendered by its V12 engine, and according to the official press release, the car features improved suspension, electronics with fully customizable driving modes.
In terms of looks, Lamborghini retains their trademark design with a more aggressive approach delivered by lengthier front splitter and front nose. However, the design modifications also contribute to better aerodynamics allowing the engine and the radiator to cool down faster than how it was in the original Aventador. The rear end remains nearly the same except for the large black diffuser. The car features an active rear wing which automatically adjusts its position based on the drive mode you have selected.
The designers of the Lamborghini Aventador S had used ample quantities of lightweight, robust materials largely comprised of carbon fiber monocoque. The total weight of the car is measured at 1,575 kilograms. Under the hood, it is powered by a 6.5-liter V12 engine that delivers about 740 horsepower. Compared to the original model, this is 40hp more combined with an increased 690 Nm of torque. The car can go from 0 to 62 miles per hour in just 2.9 seconds.
The driving experience is always primary asset for automobile manufacturers who create expensive, supercars. The 2017 Lamborghini Aventador S has four different driving modes including EGO, Sport, Corsa and Strada. EGO is the newest mode of them all that modifies the steering, suspension and traction to achieve desired results. A wide range of driver friendly features are incorporated in the dashboard including Apple CarPlay support, an optional choice that lets you use Lambo’s telemetry system and fully customizable digital screens.
The model is priced at $421.350.00 in the United States and will cost about 281.555,00 euros in the European continent. Lamborghini confirmed that they will start deliveries from Spring 2017 to those who pre-order the new flagship model.
