New supercar launch in Singapore: Lamborghini Aventador S boasts more power and improved technology by the Italian luxury car maker

Long known as one of Lamborghini’s speediest steeds, the Aventador series is now six years old. With increased power and a rehashed tech interface, the Aventador makes a comeback with the Lamborghini Aventador S. This new model of the Aventador sure does make a statement with its debut. As the next generation of the V12 Lamborghini flagship, the new design features a sleeker, more aerodynamic performance. The supercar manufacturers, promising an exquisite ride, dub the new additions to this the “Four Masterpieces”.

The first of these masterpieces is the Four Wheel steering, that is seen for the first time on a series production by the luxury car maker. The result is an enhanced lateral control. For those who may not be familiar with this, it means that the supercar is agile at low and medium speeds and is also more stable at high speeds. With the Lamborghini Dynamic Steering (LDS) combined with the front axle and the Lamborghini Rear-wheel Steering (LRS) on the rear axle, the supercar is able to boast a five millisecond reaction time to the steering movements, ensuring it to be easy to manoeuvre at both low and high speeds.

The next features include a four-wheel drive and a function that allows the driver to choose between four driving modes: the STRADA (comfort and daily use), SPORT (rear-wheel drive), CORSA (maximum track performance) and EGO to be exact. The last option provides additional and individual set-up profiles, customizable by the driver. Here, you can experiment with all four different modes, finding the one that is most suitable to your tastes. With all driving modes recalibrated in the Aventador S, ESC integration is improved.

Active suspension on all four wheels wraps up the list of ‘masterpieces’ brought by Lamborghini. A real-time variable damping system reduces caster and load on the car, maximizing balance and ground stiffness, coupled by new rear springs that contribute to the car’s balance.

Though it has inherited the V12’s engine, the Aventador S has a 40hp hold over its predecessor at a stunning 740hp. With maximum engine revs of up to a whopping 8,500rpm and a top speed of 350km/h, the Aventador S embodies unprecedented driving dynamics. The Aventador S rests on a specially developed set of Pirelli P Zero tires, specifically designed to respond to the dynamic behaviour induced by the LRS. Not to mention, the interior specifications of the Aventador S are completely customisable thanks to Lamborghini’s Personam customisation program.

“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.”

The Lamborghini Aventador S is priced at SGD$1,628,000 excluding COE and options. Reservations for the Aventador S can be placed with Eurosports Auto, the authorised dealer in Singapore.

SINGAPORE RENDEZVOUS: Lamborghini Joins Supercar Lineup

SINGAPORE RENDEZVOUS: Lamborghini Supercar Lineup

SINGAPORE RENDEZVOUS is gearing up to be a supercar haven from October 20 to 23 with an impressive lineup that will be parked on the lawn. Fans of Lamborghini will be able to see two of the brands creations out on the lawn at Raffles Marina, overlooking the luxury yachts that will be on display.

One of the supercars is be the Lamborghini Huracán LP 610-4 Spyder. Boasting a naturally aspirated 5.2-liter V10 engine packing 610 horsepower, the supercar is able to hit a top speed of 324 km/h. The design of the car is best described as a combination of the brand’s “innovation, performance and appeal of the Huracán coupé.” Well you could just take a look below, or better yet, drop by yourself to the SINGAPORE RENDEZVOUS.

The second supercar from Lamborghini’s range calling the SINGAPORE RENDEZVOUS home, is none other than the Lamborghini Aventador LP 700-4 (main picture). Packing 700 horses and a top speed of 350 km/h, the Aventador is a lightweight creation that provides high-revving pleasure with low-end torque.

With this much in store during the fun filled weekend, it would be a shame to give the event a miss. To purchase your tickets for the highly anticipated luxury lifestyle event, visit SINGAPORE RENDEZVOUS.

Salon Privé Celebrates Lamborghini Extravaganza

This year’s Salon Privé looks set to be a Lamborghini extravaganza. Held from 1 – 3 September, the most exclusive automotive garden party in UK will celebrate some of the Raging Bull’s most outrageous modern and vintage cars over the years, with more than 65 of the world’s best classic cars and 20 exceptional motorcycles on display at the grounds of Blenheim Palace, Oxfordshire, England.

Overseen by classic car expert Max Girardo and Le Mans legend Derek Bell MBE, who will also serve as master of ceremonies and chief judge respectively, the Concours D’Elegance event is hyped to be one of the best in 11 years. “It’s a genuine honor to be asked to present the concours cars on judging day, particularly given the exceptional quality on display,” said Girardo. “Cars like the Villa d’Este-winning Maserati A6 GCS and the Ferrari 500 TR Spyder are amongst the finest cars to be shown anywhere in the world.”

You can expect to experience some of the finest examples of Lamborghinis. Besides coach-built pre-War classics and European grand tourers from the 1950s to 70s, the show will also have a category specifically for perfect examples of the Miura, as the original supercar celebrates 50 illustrious years. The show will also debut the Lamborghini Centenario (main image) for the first time in the UK. The special edition hypercar is a tribute to the company founder Ferruccio’s centenary, and only 20 examples of this car were produced, all of which have already found homes.

“It perfectly reflects Ferruccio Lamborghini’s passion for high performance without compromise,” said event organizer David Bagley. “We’re immensely proud to premiere such an important car at Salon Privé this year.”

Koenigsegg Agera RS

As with Pebble Beach, Salon Privé will also serve as an automotive retrospective, while featuring brand new cars and concepts. Modern cars such as the Bristol Bullet, Koenigsegg Agera RS and Morgan UK 1909 Edition EV3 will make either their global or European debut at the show. To end the three-day affair with a bang, 68 classic and collector cars are set for auction at a Silverstone Auctions event. Besides a 1968 Shelby GT500 and 2016 Lamborghini Aventador SV Roadster (with delivery mileage only), the auction will also see the best right-hand-drive example of the Citroen DS in existence (or so they claim).

Lamborghini Aventador Miura Homage Launched

The original supercar is back and already going up against a host of challengers… Unveiled at the Goodwood Festival of Speed, the Lamborghini Aventador Miura Homage will be limited to 50 examples and draws little other than external and internal styling inspiration from the legendary supercar, but don’t regard it as a cheap publicity stunt.

For a start there’s nothing ‘cheap’ about an Aventador. The standard model costs over $400,000 and as this will be a strictly limited, numbered edition expect it to cost much, much more.

However, for that premium outlay, owners will be getting a car that really is the modern interpretation of the original supercar in every sense.

The Lamborghini Miura was the car that inspired the term supercar, and as well as being responsible for the genre, is also responsible for the blueprint. Striking good looks, striking impracticality, impossible performance and a V12 engine somewhere in the middle of it all.

The world will be watching as the Lamborghini Aventador Miura Homage goes up against the Bugatti Chiron and the McLaren P1-GTR, among others.

Ad Personam

More than any other marque, Lamborghini has stayed true to this original definition, and the Aventador should be viewed as the Miura’s university educated grandchild.

Lamborghini Aventador Miura Homage detail

Built by the company’s Ad Personam studio, its equivalent to McLaren’s MSO or Aston Martin’s division Q bespoke customization arm, it attempts to infuse the colors and materials associated with the Miura into the company’s latest flagship — so deep pigment solid color exterior paint finishes with a contrasting metallic tone and magnesium effect wheels. There’s also Miura anniversary badging while the interior is finished in keeping with the original car’s stitching patterns and leather choices too.

And despite the price tag, this car is an absolute bargain compared with a Miura, which can command as much as $3 million.

What’s more, the two cars share more than just a maker’s mark. The V12 engine that powers the Miura has matured into the block that gives the Aventador its ferocious power and performance.

The Aventador is also a better handling car, less likely to start leaving the ground in favor of the air as soon as the fuel tank hits the half-full mark.

But what it will do is rocket from standstill to 100km/h in 2.9 seconds and onto a top speed of 217mph (350km/h), which 50 years ago, when the Miura was in its prime, was quite simply unimaginable of a vehicle built for the road.

And, as the car is limited to just 50 examples, one day it could be in just as much demand as the original Miura.

Vitesse AuDessus Remakes Lamborghini Aventador

Anyone in the market would know that Vitesse AuDessus is to automobiles what Saville Row is to menswear. The US-based exotic material specialist offers customers a bespoke deal by spiffing up any model they get with carbon fiber. Now, they’ve applied that magical touch to a Lamborghini Aventador Superveloce by getting rid of that plastic finish for a beautifully exposed carbon fiber exterior in red and white.

The end product wouldn’t be too out of place in a video-game like Mirror’s Edge, which, (not quite) incidentally, also happens to be about speed and maneuverability. As a large portion of the car is finished in white, the splashes of red provide a good contrast. Its top speed of over 200mph will also surely cause some major automobile envy, should you ever bear to take it for a spin.

side_plain.21e3b133704.h0

“There is no doubt that the Superveloce is an absolutely stunning supercar. One of the car’s few aesthetic failings lies in the use of highly visible plastic bodywork. Several SV owners approached us seeking a carbon fiber option for these parts, namely the lower front bumper, side skirts, rear diffuser and mirrors” said company CEO Stefany Sanchez. There’s been a push towards carbon fiber lately, and this is just another sign of its growing value. Even McLaren recently did up a line of 675LT Spiders in a sleek black shade of it.

Beyond just doing up those parts as stated though, they’re going a bit further. Rathar than to simply switch up the body of the car, Vitesse AuDessus can also design and craft a carbon fiber roof as well as carbon fiber wheels in a choice of styles. Vitesse AuDessus has no problem taking the car apart, to fit it with a hand-finished tinted gloss or matte finish carbon fiber part – so long as the part in question, is removable. The company will even store the original parts in a special store, should you ever change your mind.

So, if you ever wish to spiff things up with your beloved ride, consider a personalized carbon fiber fit with Vitesse AuDessus.

Lamborghini LP 750-4 Superveloce

Lamborghini Aventador SV is sold out

Lamborghini LP 750-4 Superveloce

Launched less than three months ago at the 2015 Geneva Motor Show , the 2015 Lamborghini Aventador SuperVeloce is reportedly sold out.

That’s the word from Dutch outlet De Telegraaf, which claims that all 600 units of the Aventador SV have been spoken for.

Of the 600 supercars sold globally, 200 units will be delivered to North and South America, while 200 examples will land with enthusiasts from the Asia-Pacific region.

The remaining 200 cars were sold to customers from Europe, the Middle East and Africa. In Europe, the Aventador SV was priced from €327,190 ($364,000) before options.

Lamborghini LP 750-4 Superveloce

Lamborghini joins the sub-seven minute Nürburgring club

The company has published a video purportedly showing its latest hypercar, the Aventador LP750-4 Superveloce as only the third production car in history to complete a lap of the ‘Green Hell’ in under seven minutes.

Unveiled in March at the Geneva Motor show, the LP750-4 Superveloce is the ultimate Lamborghini Aventador in terms of power, performance, exclusivity and price tag. It produces 740bhp, can race from 0-100km/h in 2.8 seconds and onto a theoretical top speed of 217mph.

Lamborghini LP 750-4 Superveloce

When it was presented to the public, the company described it as the “fastest” and most “sports-focused” production Lamborghini ever and now, if the video Lamborghini has just posted to YouTube is to be believed, those words weren’t simply a sales pitch. That’s because the car has just completed a lap of the Nürburgring in under 7 minutes — 6 minutes, 59.73 seconds, to be precise, making it the third fastest production car in history to lap the infamous 12.8-mile (20.6km) circuit.

The Nürburgring, christened the ‘Green Hell’ by racing driver Sir Jackie Stewart because of its combination of ferocity and stunning scenery, has in recent years become almost as synonymous with supercars as paddle-shift gear boxes and bold colors. It is now the de facto proving ground for any car that has sporting aspirations and wants to be taken seriously.

James Abbott (GBR) Radical SR8

The current lap record holder is the Radical SR8 LM. The tiny, barely road legal V8 racing car completed the circuit in a remarkable 6:48s but although it’s fast, the car would be challenging to live with in any setting other than a circuit — no roof, no doors, marginal ground clearance.

The same can’t be said about the car in second place, the wonderfully exotic Porsche 918 Spyder. The hybrid supercar, which uses a petrol and a battery engine together as well as four wheel drive to generate 875bhp and environmentally responsible acceleration, posted a time of 6:57 seconds — barely two seconds quicker than the Lamborghini.

porsche 918 spyder concept

One car that won’t be joining the club soon is the McLaren P1.

Despite extensive testing on the track and purportedly completing a circuit in a remarkable 6:47s, the company has decided against publishing or officially verifying its time for fear that the competition it inspires could lead to a potentially fatal accident.

Aventador Pirelli Edition

Lamborghini Aventador LP 700-4 Pirelli Edition revealed

Aventador Pirelli Edition

 has revealed a new special edition Aventador LP 700-4 Pirelli Edition to celebrate the 50-year association between the two firms.

The supercar comes with its special 20- or 21-inch alloy wheels wrapped in equally special versions of Pirelli’s P Zero tires.

Available in both Coupé and Roadster versions, the Aventador LP 700-4 Pirelli Edition sports a two-tone color scheme in two options.

Owners will be able to specify the car with a matte black roof, pillars, wing mirrors, and air intakes along with a contrasting gloss finish for the body.

The second option has gloss black paint on the “upper parts of the car” which is contrasted by one of four matte finishes – Bianco Canopus, Nero Nemesis, Grigio Adamas or Grigio Titans – on the body.

Lamborghini Aventador Pirelli Edition

Regardless of two-tone finish, all cars will feature a thin red pin-striping detail that follows the roofline contour, and engine bay and outlines the front air intakes and the wing mirrors.

Red embroidered Lamborghini and Pirelli logos also feature on the seats, and there’s a Pirelli special series plaque on the dash.

The changes for the Pirelli Edition are entirely cosmetic so you’ll have to make do with the same 700hp and 217mph as a boggo Aventador.

The Pirelli Edition is described as a ‘special series’ by Lamborghini but without a fixed number of units for production. There’s no word on pricing but the first deliveries are scheduled for early next summer.

Swiss car modifier FAB Design has presented the Spidron, a souped-up version of the Lamborghini Aventador with a lime green livery, a unique aerodynamic package and an additional 70hp.

FAB Design has equipped the Lamborghini Avendator with additional air intakes, new aerodynamic elements in the rear, new wheels and a new carbon fiber rear wing.

Thanks to a new engine configuration and the addition of specially adapted sport air filters, FAB Design claims to have boosted the supercar’s total power to 770hp, compared to 700hp for the factory-issued Aventador.

The modifier also claims that the Lamborghini Aventador Spidron accelerates from 0 to 100km/h in just 2.9 seconds.

The tuner car is available through FAB Design for €430,000 (around $592,000) plus tax. The first deliveries are expected to go out this June.

Lamborghini to Debut Renewed Customization Program

It looks as if one of the stand-out luxury automotive trends for 2014 is going to be bespoke customization.

Lamborghini Egoista photo

In the lead up the Geneva Motor Show, which opens its doors to the public in little more than a week, both Ferrari and Rolls-Royce have announced that 2013 was a record year for client customization requests.

Every single new Ferrari plus 95% of Rollers sold over the past 12 months were personalized, and now Lamborghini is looking to get in on the action.

Lamborghini Aventador roadster photo

Like its closest rivals, Lamborghini already has a personalization program, called Ad Personam. But until now, it was only open to clients looking to buy and personalize the company’s flagship Aventador.

However, its reach is now being extended to cover the Huracán, which goes on sale later this year.

As well as opening the program to all new Lamborghini production models, the customization options are also being extended.

There will be a greater choice of interior and exterior color options, a wider selection of leathers and even the option of Forged Composite, Lamborghini’s patented carbon-fiber-based material as a replacement material for elements of the body work or cabin.

But it doesn’t stop there. At the Geneva Motor Show, Lamborghini will be launching the Ad Personam Studio, a “fully-functional and highly-exclusive design studio where customers are assisted in the process of creating their very own, made-to-order Lamborghini Aventador.”

Earlier this month a Lamborghini Aventador wearing the white and green Dubai Police uniform turned up at a Dubai shopping mall, for permanent police duty.

Now, a white and red Lamborghini Aventador has taken up the job of a runway taxi at Aeroporto di Bologna, which is 30 minutes away from Lamborghini’s headquarters.

The specially trained airport staff is guiding arriving flights in the supercar which has been equipped with a light bar.

It’s wearing a white & red theme with the necessary decals, including a “follow me” sticker as well as others to celebrate Lamborghini’s anniversary.

The solution is not permanent, though, and the car will be returned on 19 May.

Ferrari FF Dubai Police

New Dubai Police sports cars rolled out

Ferrari FF joins Lamborghini on Dubai Police

The Dubai Police have unveiled a Ferrari FF as the latest addition to its fleet of patrol vehicles.

As a quick reminder, the Ferrari FF, which stands for “Ferrari Four”, because of its four seats and four-wheel drive, is a grand tourer which was unveiled by the Maranello based automaker on the 1st of March 2011 during the Geneva Motor Show.

The FF, which is powered by a 651-horsepower 6.3-liter V-12, accelerates to 60 mph in 3.7 seconds and reaches a top speed of 208 mph.

News of the $250,000 Ferrari FF patrol car comes just one week after Dubai Police authorities confirmed the addition of another Italian supercar, a $550,000 Lamborghini Aventador.

This was added to the Chevrolet Camaro, which was confirmed last month by the authority, with images of its two-door prototype also being released online.

In a statement, Dubai Police has confirmed it will soon introduce sports cars into its fleet to enhance its patrolling abilities.

The authorities said the sport cars were built according to Dubai Police specifications and “will help to facilitate policing on highways.”

To celebrate its 50th anniversary, Lamborghini has introduced its fastest and most outrageous road car yet, the Veneno.

The Veneno is named after a legendary fighting bull whose reputation was built on the fact that it was one of the strongest and most aggressive in history.

The Veneno is based on the Aventador coupe and is built almost entirely from carbon fiber. It boasts a V12, 750 horespower powertrain and permanent four-wheel drive.

Lamborghini says the Veneno can reach speeds of 220 miles per hour (355 kilometers per hour) and accelerates from 0-60 mph in 2.8 seconds.

The model making its world debut at the Geneva Motor Show is grey, but the three production models will each be finished in one of the three colors of the Italian flag.

The green, white and red cars will retail for €3 million ($3.9 million) plus tax and Lamborghini claims it has already secured a buyer for every example.

However the display model, which carries the production number 0, will remain the property of Lamborghini.

Likewise, although the Italian supercar maker has guaranteed delivery of each production model before the end of the year, production won’t start until further track-based testing has been completed.

The Aventador J doesn’t have a roof, not even the retractable kind. Nor does it have a windscreen, with Lamborghini apparently having concluded that its “force of nature on wheels” should be as exposed to the real nature as possible.
