Chronology
Predecessor Lamborghini Murciélago

The Lamborghini Aventador is a mid-engined sports car produced by the Italian manufacturer Lamborghini.

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.[5][6][7]

Soon after the Aventador unveiling, Lamborghini announced that it had already sold over 12 of the production vehicles, with deliveries starting in the second half of 2011.[8] By March 2016, Lamborghini had already built 5,000 Aventadors, taking five years to achieve this milestone.[9]

Background[edit]

In keeping with Lamborghini tradition, the Aventador is named after a fighting bull. Aventador (pronounced: [aβentaˈðoɾ]) was a bull that fought particularly valiantly in the bull ring of Zaragoza, Spain in 1993.[10][11] The bull which the Aventador is named after earned the Trofeo de la Peña La Madroñera for its courage in the arena.[12]

Aventador LP 700-4[edit]

Production will be limited to 4,000 vehicles (4,099 Murciélagos were built). The molds used to make the carbon-fibre monocoque are expected to last 500 molds each and only 8 have been made. The base price of the Aventador is US$393,695.[13]

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

The vehicle was unveiled at Lummus Park, Miami, followed by Miami International Airport,[14] followed by Auto China 2014 (with Nazionale configuration via Lamborghini Ad Personam personalization program).[15]

The Lamborghini Aventador starred in Transformers: Age of Extinction as Lockdown, the film's main antagonist.

Specifications[edit]

Engine[edit]

The Aventador LP 700–4 uses Lamborghini's new 700 PS (510 kW; 690 bhp) 6.5 litre 60° V12 engine weighing 235 kg. Known internally as the L539,[6] the new engine is Lamborghini's fourth in-house engine and second V12 design. It is the first all-new V12 since the 3.5 litre powerplant found in the 350GT.[16]

Displacement 6,498 cc (396.5 cu in)
Max. power 700 PS (510 kW; 690 bhp) @ 8,250 rpm
Power to weight 432 PS (318 kW; 426 bhp) per tonne
Max. torque 689 N·m (508 lb·ft) @ 5,500 rpm
CO2 emissions 398 g/km
Combined fuel consumption 17.2 L/100 km (16.4 mpg-imp; 13.7 mpg-US)[17]

Performance[edit]

Its transmission, a single-clutch seven-speed semi-automatic, is built by Graziano Trasmissioni.[21][22] Despite being single-clutch, gear-shifts are accomplished in 50 milliseconds.

The new, electronically controlled, all-wheel drive system is developed and supplied by the Swedish company Haldex Traction, offering traction[23] and handling capabilities based on their 4th generation technology.[24]

Aventador LP 700-4 Roadster[edit]

The 2013 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 again that it can reach 97 km/h (60 mph) in less than 3 seconds and a top speed of more than 350 km/h (217 mph).[25]

The removable roof consists of two carbon fiber 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 ventilations systems for the engine. The panels are of easy removal 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 high speed as well as a gloss black finish in the A-pillars, windshield header, roof panels, and rear window area. The car has a US$441,600 base price. With a total weight of 1,625 kg (3,583 lb) it's only 50 kg (110 lb) heavier than the coupé (the weight of the roof, plus additional stiffening in the sills and A-pillars).[26][27][28]

Special Editions[edit]

Aventador LP 750-4 SuperVeloce (2015-)[edit]

2015 Lamborghini Aventador SV

Lamborghini Aventador LP 750-4 Superveloce was announced in March 2015 at the Geneva Motor Show. It features an upgraded powertrain, with maximum horsepower increased to 559 kW (750 bhp) from the standard coupé's 522 kW (700 bhp). Combined with weight reduction of 50 kg (110 lb) from increased usage of carbon fiber both inside and outside the car the LP 750-4 SV has a power to weight ratio of 1 hp to 2 kg. The car also features increased aerodynamics, with downforce increased by 180% as compared to the standard Aventador coupé. Notable aerodynamic upgrades are a revised front splitter and rear diffuser, and a rear wing. The car is available in 34 base colours.[29] 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 LP 750-4 SV's standing 0–100 km/h (0–62 mph) 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.[30] 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 0-402m (¼-mile) trap speed of 227.4 km/h (141.3 mph) in the March 2016 0–322 km/h (0–200 mph) shootout.[31]

Aventador LP 750-4 SuperVeloce Roadster (2016-)[edit]

Lamborghini Aventador SV Roadster

Lamborghini Aventador LP 750-4 SuperVeloce Roadster was unveiled at the 2015 Pebble Beach Concours d'Elegance. It features a compact two-piece carbon fiber hard top that can be stowed in the trunk like the previous 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 regular. In the US it is expected to be priced from US$530,075 excluding tax.[32] Deliveries began in the first quarter of 2016.[33]

Aventador J[edit]

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.[34] The roofless and windowless concept car uses the same V12 engine as the standard Aventador, producing 700 hp through a lightweight seven-speed automated transmission. The car does not have air conditioning or radio to save further weight for a total of 3,472 pounds (1,575 kg).[35][36] The car presented at the Geneva show was the only unit to be produced, and was sold for US$2,800,000. Another Limited Edition model was made for Shaikh Al Yahyaa and was sold at an unknown price. The car was specially made for a close relation.[37]

The J designation was thought to have come from Appendix J in the FIA rulebook that describes the technical specifications of race cars.[38] 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.

Dreamliner Edition (2012)[edit]

It is a version of Aventador LP 700-4 coupé with blue and white body colour scheme from Boeing 787 Dreamliner, pitch-black wheels.

The vehicle was unveiled in 2012 Aerospace & Defense Supplier Summit.[39]

Aventador LP 720-4 50° Anniversario (2013)[edit]

Lamborghini Aventador LP 720-4 50° Anniversario roadster

The Aventador LP 720-4 50° Anniversario is a limited (200 units - 100 Coupe and 100 Roadster) version of the Aventador LP 700-4 commemorating the 50th anniversary of Automobili Lamborghini. It included increased engine power to 720 PS (530 kW; 710 bhp) via a new specific engine calibration, enlarged and extended front air intakes and the aerodynamic splitter, small flaps set into the sides, new rear end featuring an enlarged diffuser and expansive meshwork that further improves engine-compartment ventilation, model-exclusive Giallo Maggio (Italian for "May yellow") body colour featuring sparkling yellow paintwork with a layer of transparent and highly reflective particles; front and rear and sills in two-tone (Giallo Maggio and matte black) design, semi-aniline leather interior upholstery in Nero Ade (black) with Terra Emilia (optional Giallo Quercus (yellow)) with Q-Citura stitch diamond pattern, 50th anniversary emblem in forged composite carbon-fiber. The base price of the Aventador LP 720-4 50° is US$548,000 which is US$106,300 more than the Aventador Roadster.

The coupe was unveiled in 2013 Shanghai Motor Show.[40][41]

The roadster was unveiled in 2013 Quail Motorsports Gathering.[42]

Aventador airport vehicle (2013)[edit]

An Aventador was made for Bologna Airport with white body colour, red and white chequered flag decals on the sides, a light bar on the roof and 'FOLLOW ME' written on the bonnet.

The vehicle was unveiled in Bologna Airport between 6 May 2013 and 19 May 2013 and was used to guide aircraft around the airport.[43] It was also used in Heathrow Airport, London, as an airport vehicle for a single day.[44]

Aventador Pirelli Edition (2014)[edit]

The Lamborghini Aventador LP 700-4 Pirelli Edition was announced in December 2014. Celebrating a 50-year association between Lamborghini and Pirelli, it features a design and colour scheme that echoes the Pirelli tyre, with a thin red stripe running across the roof.[45]

Reception[edit]

Unibody construction as used for the Aventador LP700-4

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 V-12 supercar in the world." Praise for Lamborghini's all-new V-12 powerplant centered on the engine's responsiveness, torque, and smooth power output. Criticism centered mainly around the Aventador's unrefined single-disc clutch.[46][47]

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.[48] 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."[49] The Aventador won the "Supercar of the Year 2011" from Top Gear.

Marketing[edit]

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).[50] 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.[51]

BMC Switzerland produced a limited (50 units) edition of Lamborghini 50th Anniversary Edition impec bicycles inspired by the Lamborghini Aventador. The vehicle was sold for US$32,000 (€25,000) via international BMC or Lamborghini dealer network, with delivery done by the dealer.[52]
