Lamborghini Aventador

The Lamborghini Aventador (Spanish pronunciation: [aβentaˈðoɾ]) is a mid-engine sportscar produced by the Italian automotive manufacturer Lamborghini. In keeping with Lamborghini tradition, the Aventador is named after a Spanish fighting bull that fought in Zaragoza, Aragón, in 1993.[7][8][9] The Aventador is the successor for the Murciélago and was made by hand in Sant'Agata Bolognese, Italy.

Lamborghini Aventador interior

The Aventador launched on 28 February 2011 at the Geneva Motor Show, five months after its initial unveiling in Sant'Agata Bolognese, the vehicle, internally codenamed LB834, was designed to replace the then-decade-old Murciélago as the new flagship model.[10][11][12]

Soon after the Aventador's unveiling, Lamborghini announced that it had sold 12 cars, with deliveries starting in the second half of 2011.[13] By March 2016, Lamborghini had built 5,000 Aventadors. They are some of the bestselling Lamborghinis.[14]

The Aventador LP 700-4 was the first iteration of the Aventador and was designed by Filippo Perini. Production of the Aventador was planned to be limited to 4,000 vehicles; however, in 2016 it achieved the 5,000 unit milestone. The moulds used to make the carbon-fibre monocoque are expected to last 500 moulds each and only 8 have been made.[25]

The car's shape borrows heavily from Lamborghini's limited-edition Reventón and the Estoque concept car.

The Aventador was unveiled at Lummus Park, Miami, followed by Miami International Airport,[26] followed by Auto China 2014 (with Nazionale configuration via Lamborghini Ad Personam personalization program).[27]

Aventador LP 700-4 Roadster (2013–2016)Edit

Lamborghini Aventador LP 700-4 Roadster

The Aventador LP 700-4 Roadster was announced for production on 27 December 2012. Equipped with the same V12 engine as the coupé version, Lamborghini claims that it can accelerate from 0–97 km/h (0–60 mph) in 2.9 seconds and will achieve a top speed of 349 km/h (217 mph).[28]

The removable roof consists of two carbon fibre panels, weighing 6 kg (13 lb) each, which required the reinforcement of the rear pillar to compensate for the loss of structural integrity as well as to accommodate the rollover protection and ventilation systems for the engine. The panels are removable and are stored in the front luggage compartment. The Aventador Roadster has a unique engine cover design and an attachable wind deflector to improve cabin airflow at super high speeds as well as a gloss black finish on the A-pillars, windshield header, roof panels, and rear window area. With a total weight of 1,625 kg (3,583 lb) it is only 50 kg (110 lb) heavier than the coupé (the weight of the roof, plus additional stiffening in the sills and A-pillars).[29][30][31]

Aventador SuperVeloce LP 750-4 (2015–2017)Edit

2015 Lamborghini Aventador SV

The Lamborghini Aventador SuperVeloce LP 750-4 was announced at the 2015 Geneva Motor Show. It featured an upgraded powertrain, with maximum power output increased to 750 PS (552 kW; 740 hp) from the standard coupé's 700 PS (515 kW; 690 hp). Combined with weight reduction of 50 kg (110 lb) from increased usage of carbon fibre both inside and outside the car, the SV LP 750-4 has a power-to-weight ratio of 1 hp to 2 kg. The car also features improved aerodynamics, with downforce increased by 180% as compared to the standard Aventador coupé. Notable aerodynamic upgrades are a revised front splitter and a rear diffuser along with a fixed CFRP rear wing. The car's driving dynamics have also been upgraded, featuring new enhanced electronic steering for superior maneuverability at high speeds, magnetic pushrod suspension for superior handling, and chassis improvements to increase rigidity. Overall, the SV LP 750-4's 0–100 km/h (0–62 mph) acceleration time is decreased from 2.9 seconds to 2.8 seconds, with the theoretical top speed still "somewhere in excess" of 350 km/h (217 mph). Delivery of the car began in the second quarter of 2015 with production limited to 600 units.[32][33] Road & Track recorded a 0–241 km/h (0–150 mph) time of 12.8 seconds, a 0–322 km/h (0–200 mph) time of 33.5 seconds, and a 0–14 mile (402 m) trap speed of 227.4 km/h (141.3 mph) in the March 2016 0–322 km/h (0–200 mph) shootout.[34]

Production of the Aventador SuperVeloce LP 750-4 ended in July 2017 with the last car finished in a bespoke liquid silver metallic paint job.[35]

Aventador SuperVeloce LP 750-4 Roadster (2016–2017)Edit

Lamborghini Aventador SV Roadster

The Lamborghini Aventador SuperVeloce LP 750-4 Roadster was unveiled at the 2015 Pebble Beach Concours d'Elegance. It featured a compact two-piece carbon fibre hardtop that can be stored in the trunk like the standard roadster. Numerous weight-saving measures have lowered the Roadster's weight to 1,575 kg (3,472 lb), a figure that makes it 50 kg (110 lb) lighter than the standard roadster.[36] Deliveries began in the first quarter of 2016 and production was limited to 500 units.[37]

Aventador S LP 740-4 (2016–2021)Edit

Lamborghini Aventador S

The Lamborghini Aventador S was revealed on 19 December 2016 at the Sant'Agata factory.[38] Official reveal of the car took place at the March 2017 Geneva Motor Show. The Aventador S is an update to the Aventador LP 700-4 with mechanical and exterior changes. The updated exterior of the car was designed by Lamborghini's head of design Mitja Borkert.[1] The 6.5 litre V12 engine is now rated at 740 PS (544 kW; 730 hp) at 8,400 rpm (40 PS (39 hp; 29 kW), more than the original Aventador and 690 N⋅m (509 lb⋅ft) of torque at 5,500 rpm.[39] The car can accelerate from 0 to 97 km/h (0 to 60 mph) in 2.9 seconds and has a top speed of 349 km/h (217 mph).

The Aventador S received four-wheel steering, permanent four-wheel-drive and a slightly updated suspension. The suspension is controlled by the 'Lamborghini Dinamica Veicolo Attiva' (LDVA) control unit. The LDVA has four selectable modes – Sport, Strada (Street), Corsa (Track) and Ego (i.e. individual). Carbon ceramic brakes are standard (front: 400 mm, rear: 380 mm).[40] The nose was redesigned with a bigger front splitter and two new air ducts in the front bumper. At the rear, it has a new black rear diffuser with fins and three single exit exhaust tips. It has 130 percent more front downforce than the original Aventador.[40]

Aventador S LP 740-4 Roadster (2017–2021)Edit

Lamborghini Aventador S Roadster at the 2017 Frankfurt Motor Show

The roadster variant of the new Aventador S followed up in 2017 at the Frankfurt International Motor Show. The roadster is mechanically identical to the coupé with the only difference being the engine cover (identical to the standard Aventador roadster), two carbon fibre removable roof panels (weighing less than 6 kg (13 lb) stowable in the front compartment of the car and new optional wheels. The roadster is 50 kg (110 lb) heavier than the coupé due to chassis reinforcing components due to which it accelerates from 0–60 mph (0–97 km/h) in 3.2 seconds, 0.3 seconds slower than the coupe.[41]

Aventador SVJ LP 770-4 (2018–2021)Edit

Rear view

Unveiled at the 2018 Pebble Beach Concours d'Elegance, the Aventador SVJ (Super Veloce Jota) is a track-focused iteration of the Aventador S and an improvement over the Aventador SV. The 6.5-litre L539 V12 engine used in the entire Aventador lineage has been reworked and now generates a maximum power output of 770 PS (566 kW; 759 hp) at 8,500 rpm and 720 N⋅m (531 lb⋅ft) of torque at 6,750 rpm. The weight-saving measures such as the extensive use of carbon fibre, and titanium in the exhaust system have brought the weight down to 1,525 kg (3,362 lb), giving the car a power-to-weight ratio of 0.5 hp/kg. The Aventador SVJ can accelerate from 0–100 km/h (0–62 mph) in 2.8 seconds and 0–200 km/h (0–124 mph) in 8.6 seconds and can attain a top speed of over 352 km/h (219 mph).

A camouflaged prototype of the variant had previously made a new production car lap around the Nürburgring Nordschleife in July 2018, beating the previous record-holder, the Porsche 911 GT2 RS by setting a lap time of 6:44.97 with Lamborghini test driver Marco Mapelli behind the wheel achieved by using the Pirelli Pzero Trofeo R tyres available with the car as an option.[42]

The Aventador SVJ is the first production V12 Lamborghini model to feature Lamborghini's Aerodinamica Lamborghini Attiva (ALA) system. This allows the car to achieve 40% more downforce than the Aventador SV and 1% reduction in the coefficient of drag. The system adds aerodynamic components to the car including a disconnected front splitter, tri-dimensional air outlet on the bonnet, a large carbon fibre rear wing with a central fin, underbody aero design with vortex generators, and a large rear diffuser. The system works in conjunction with Lamborghini Dinamica Veicolo Attiva 2.0 (LDVA 2.0) management system, which uses inertial sensors to control the car's aero in 500 milliseconds.

Aventador SVJ LP 770-4 Roadster (2019–2021)Edit

Lamborghini Aventador SVJ Roadster at the 2019 Geneva Motor Show

The roadster variant of the SVJ was unveiled at the 2019 Geneva Motor Show and will be produced in a limited series of 800 units. The car includes a removable hard top made of two different pieces made of carbon fibre and retains the powertrain from the coupé. The performance figures remain the same as the coupe.[43]

Aventador LP 780-4 Ultimae (2021)Edit

The last variant of the Aventador was announced at the premiere on Lamborghini's social channels in July 2021. It is limited to 600 units (350 for the Coupé, 250 for the Roadster). It has all the standard features of the Aventador S and SVJ. It produces a maximum output of 780 PS (574 kW; 769 hp) and the same 720 N⋅m (531 lb⋅ft) of torque as the Aventador SVJ. Lamborghini claims that it can accelerate from 0–100 km/h (0–62 mph) in 2.84 seconds.[44] The top speed is claimed to be 356 km/h (221 mph). The Coupé has a claimed kerb weight of 1,550 kg (3,417 lb).

In February 2022, after production had ended, 15 Ultimaes were destroyed when a car carrier cargo ship, the Felicity Ace, caught fire and sank approximately 320 km (200 miles) from Terceira Island in the Azores.[45] Lamborghini was forced to restart production to replace those lost 15 vehicles.[46] The very last Ultimae, and thus the very last Aventador, to be produced was customized as an homage to a one-of-a-kind Lamborghini Miura P400 (not to be confused with the 2016 homages to the Miura), painted in a unique Azzuro Flake colour.[46] After this, the Aventador was later succeeded by the Revuelto.

Special editionsEdit

Aventador JEdit

Lamborghini Aventador J

Six months after unveiling the Aventador, plans for a roadster version were leaked by the U.S. EPA after it included the model on a data sheet on its website. Lamborghini officially unveiled the Aventador J to the world at the 2012 Geneva Motor Show.[47] The roofless and windowless barchetta concept car uses the same V12 engine as the standard Aventador, producing 700 PS (690 hp; 515 kW) with the same single-clutch transmission as in the standard coupé. The car does not have air conditioning or radio to save further weight for a total of 3,472 lb (1,575 kg).[48][49] The car presented at the Geneva show was the only unit to be produced, and was sold for US$2.8 million.[50]

The J designation was thought to have come from Appendix J in the FIA rulebook that describes the technical specifications of race cars.[51] However, during an interview with designer Filippo Perini, it was revealed that the 'J' actually stands for Jota, in reference to a 1970s one-off Lamborghini Miura Jota, which also conformed to the FIA's Appendix J regulations.

Aventador LP 720-4 50º Anniversario (2013)Edit

Lamborghini Aventador LP 720-4 50º Anniversario roadster

The Aventador LP 720-4 50º Anniversario is a limited (200 units - 100 Coupé and 100 Roadster) version of the Aventador LP 700-4 commemorating the 50th anniversary of Automobili Lamborghini.

It pays tribute to the victories of 2018 and 2019 at the 24 Hours of Daytona and the 12 Hours of Sebring. 63 were built, the number representing Lamborghini's founding in 1963. Technical specifications are the same as the SVJ Roadster.[57][58]

Aventador SVJ Roadster Xago Edition (2020)Edit

The SVJ Roadster Xago Edition was unveiled on July 17, 2020, for clients of the newly created virtual version of the Ad Personam studio, based on the standard SVJ Roadster. Taking inspiration from the hexagonal storms of Saturn, the exterior colour scheme of the car took 120 hours and another 80 hours for the interior to be reworked to match. Only 10 units were produced. Technical specifications are the same as the SVJ Roadster.[59]

Other Lamborghinis based on the AventadorEdit


Lamborghini Veneno at the 2013 Geneva Motor Show

The Lamborghini Veneno is a limited-run supercar based on the Aventador LP 700-4. The Veneno was developed to celebrate Lamborghini's 50th anniversary. It was introduced at the 2013 Geneva Motor Show. When introduced, it had a price of US$4,000,000, making it one of the most expensive production cars in the world.[60] The 6.5-litre naturally-aspirated V12 and generates a power output of 552 kW (740 hp; 750 PS) at 8,400 rpm and 690 N⋅m (509 lb⋅ft) of torque at 5,500 rpm.[61] The increase in power was achieved by enlarging the air intakes and modifying the exhaust system. Lamborghini built just four examples of the Veneno Coupé: one retained for the factory, and three cars for customers, all of which had different accent colours representing the Italian flag. In addition to the coupé, a further nine units of a Roadster version were produced for customers.[62]


Lamborghini Centenario at the Geneva Motor Show

The Lamborghini Centenario is a limited production supercar based on the Aventador SV. The Centenario coupé was unveiled at the 2016 Geneva Motor Show and the Centenario Roadster was unveiled at The Quail, during Monterey Car Week 2016 to celebrate the 100th birthday of Ferruccio Lamborghini.[63] Power comes from a tuned version of the 6.5-litre naturally-aspirated V12 from the Aventador SV now generating 566 kW (759 hp; 770 PS) at 8,500 rpm and 690 N⋅m (509 lb⋅ft) of torque at 5,500 rpm, therefore increasing power over the Aventador SV by 15 kW (20 hp; 20 PS). The Centenario also has a slight weight reduction compared with the Aventador SV of 5 kg (11 lb).[64] The engine is mated to the same 7-speed ISR automated manual gearbox as used on an Aventador SV along with the all-wheel-drive drivetrain developed by Haldex. The power steering has two turns lock-to-lock. The suspension system is a push-rod design.[65] A total of 40 units were produced (half of them coupés and the other half roadsters), all of which were already sold via invitation to selected customers.[66]

SC18 AlstonEdit

SC18 Alston

Introduced in November 2018, the SC18 Alston is a track-focused one-off created for a customer under close collaboration with Lamborghini's motorsport division Squadra Corse. Based on the Aventador SVJ, the SC18 Alston incorporates aerodynamic elements taken from the Huracán GT3 and the Huracán Super Trofeo EVO. Main features of the car include a big adjustable carbon-fibre rear wing, front air intakes on the hood taken from the Huracán GT3, new Veneno-like wheels created especially for the car, a one-off exhaust system along with rear lights from the Centenario, rear fenders, hood scoops and the central fin from the Huracán Super Trofeo Evo, and a new front bumper. All these changes give the car 759 hp (770 PS) and 720 N⋅m (531 lb⋅ft) of torque. The mechanical components and drive train remain the same as the donor car.[67][68]

Sián FKP 37Edit

Lamborghini Sián FKP 37 at the Frankfurt Motor Show

The Lamborghini Sián FKP 37 is the first hybrid sports car to be built by the manufacturer, honouring the late Ferdinand Karl Piëch (whose initials emboss the name of the car), and his birth year 1937 (the last two digits make up the name of the car as well). Power comes from a reconfigured 6.5-litre naturally-aspirated V12 from the Aventador SVJ and an electric motor powered by supercapacitors at the rear axle, for a total of 603 kW (808 hp; 819 PS) making the Sián the most powerful production Lamborghini automobile ever created at its online launch on 3 September 2019.[69] The exterior design incorporates a wedge shape, a trademark of famed automobile designer Marcello Gandini and mixes that with the design of the Terzo Millennio concept introduced two years prior. The Y shaped daytime running headlights are inspired by the Lamborghini Terzo Millennio while at the rear an active fixed rear wing with the number "63" embossed on its winglets to honour the company's year of incorporation. Downforce is maximised by the model's prominent side air intakes and large carbon fibre front splitter. A transparent "Peroscopio" glass panel runs from the centre of the roof and rolls back into the slatted engine cover adds light and visibility for the occupants, and the six hexagonal taillights are an inspiration from the Countach. Production of the Sián FKP 37 will be limited to 63 units and all have already been sold. Lamborghini's Ad Personam division will be responsible for the manufacture of the Sián. The car was officially unveiled to the public at the 2019 Frankfurt Motor Show configured in a unique "electric gold" paint. The coupé will be limited to just 63 units and additionally, the roadster variant of the Sián, which has been limited to 19 units, have all been sold out.[69][70][71]

Essenza SCV12Edit

Lamborghini Essenza SCV12

The Lamborghini Essenza SCV12 is a track-only sports car built by Lamborghini and their motorsport division, Squadra Corse.[72] When it was unveiled online to the public on July 29, 2020, the Essenza SCV12 became the most powerful purely, naturally-aspirated car, pushing out a maximum power output of 610 kW (819 hp; 830 PS) achieved by a horizontally-mounted 6.5-litre naturally-aspirated V12 from the Aventador SVJ and a ram air induction system, the latter serving as the aspiration.[citation needed] The Essenza SCV12 is 136 kg (300 lb) lighter than the Aventador SVJ and features a carbon fibre monocoque which is the first to be homologated without the use of metal.[citation needed] The Essenza SVC12 is also the first car to be developed according to the FIA prototype safety rules.[citation needed] The car has a power-to-weight ratio of 1.66 kg per hp and generates a downforce of 1,200 kg (2,600 lb) at 249 km/h (155 mph), more than a typical GT3 racecar.[73] Production is limited to 40 units and it will have its own one-make racing series.[73]

Countach LPI 800-4Edit

Lamborghini Countach LPI 800-4 front view

The Lamborghini Countach LPI 800-4 is a limited edition hybrid car made in 2021 inspired by the Lamborghini Countach. The car's exterior design has been adapted from the Countach and the Lamborghini Sián FKP 37. The car is capable of accelerating from 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph) in 2.8 seconds and has a top speed of 355 km/h (221 mph).

Unibody construction as used for the Aventador LP 700-4

Automotive magazines such as Car and Driver and Motor Trend reviewed the Aventador. Car and Driver titled their article "The best Lamborghini ever." Motor Trend described it as "the friendliest V12 supercar in the world." Praise for Lamborghini's all-new V12 powerplant centered on the engine's responsiveness, torque, and smooth power output. Criticism centered mainly around the Aventador's unrefined single-disc clutch.[76][77]

On 31 July 2011, the Aventador was reviewed by the motorsport show Top Gear. Host Richard Hammond was impressed with the performance and handling of the car. His biggest complaint was a nostalgic poke at the Aventador's accessible temperament, implying that it left him longing for the "danger" associated with driving previous Lamborghini supercars.[78] The Aventador posted the fifth fastest time ever recorded on the Top Gear test track with a time of 1:16.5, beating the US$2,000,000 Bugatti Veyron Super Sport, the Ferrari Enzo, the Porsche 911 GT3, and other supercars from around the world. In season 18 of the programme, presenter Jeremy Clarkson said that the Aventador is better than the Ferrari 458 Italia (which they had previously called the best supercar ever), describing it as being "£200,000 worth of dreams."[79] The Aventador won the "Supercar of the Year 2011" from Top Gear. Hammond later reviewed the Aventador Roadster in a segment of 50 years of Lamborghini.


Robert Gülpen of RGE Robert Gülpen Engineering GmbH produced a 1/8-scale model Aventador LP 700-4 that was sold through an auction December 2011 with starting bid price of US$4,700,000 (€3,500,000).[80] A second model, featuring gold wrapping at body, was set to go for sale at auction with a starting bid price of US$7,500,000.[81]

BMC Switzerland produced a limited (50 units) edition of Lamborghini 50th Anniversary Edition impec bicycles inspired by the Lamborghini Aventador. The bikes cost US$32,000 (€25,000) each via international BMC or Lamborghini dealer network, with delivery done by the dealer.[82]
