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.
