The new Lamborghini Aventador S is the newest supercar from the popular car manufacturer. However, don't let them hear you call the Aventador S or any other Lamborghini for that matter, a supercar. As the company put it in a recent video, "We are not supercars. We are Lamborghini."
Bloomberg best described the Lamborghini Aventador S when it called it "a direct blood relative of the meanest, roughest, most fire-breathing, track-gobbling monsters on the planet." While those choice of words are enough to know that the Aventador S is one heck of a supercar, it may be better to look at some of its magnificent features. Just to be sure.
The Lamborghini Aventador S is a wonder based on its looks alone. Its futuristic design is courtesy of Marcello Gandini. The esteemed designer made good use of geometry in coming up with a design that makes one think of "space rockets and fighter jets," as Bloomberg pointed out. The innovative design is not only noted for aesthetic value. The vents on the side of the Lamborghini Aventador S improve the supercar's air cooling. The back of the Aventador S is also designed to improve the car's aerodynamics, allowing it to run faster and more efficient.
Speaking of speed, the Lamborghini Aventador S is capable of going 0 to 62 mph in a mere 2.9 seconds. While it's slower than its predecessor by a fraction of a second, the Aventador S is still faster than the Lamborghini Huracán which takes 3.2 seconds to reach that figure. The Aventador S, which is capable of a top speed of 217 mph, is equipped with a V12 engine that is capable of a staggering 740 horsepower and 509 pound-feet of torque.
Lamborghini also equipped the Aventador S with what it calls the Magnetorheological Suspension 2.0 Hi-Fi. Basically, it's the company's new damper controls and suspension kinematics. The Lamborghini Aventador S can also adapt better to different road conditions thanks to the use of electromagnetic fluid.
The $422,000 Aventador S is not only good-looking and powerful, it's also technologically advanced. The Verge noted that the new Lamborghini luxury car will show a display that resembles that of a racing video game once the driver goes into Corsa driving mode. It also comes with the Apple CarPlay.
